A man formerly living as a transgender woman has given his powerful testimony of how he came to exchange his life of homosexual promiscuity for following Jesus Christ. Jeffrey McCall, who organized the “Freedom March” in D.C. this weekend, spent years living as a woman named “Scarlett.” Then, God spoke to him, and everything changed.

“I was living as a female,” McCall told the crowd at the march, which gathered together ex-gay and transgender people who have chosen to live lives of chastity to honor Christ, as reported by LifeSite News.

McCall further explained that when he was younger, he went to see a psychiatrist and was on the verge of undergoing gender transitioning surgeries.

“One night I was secretly listening to a preacher in my apartment,” McCall continued.  “I called out to the Lord, and asked, ‘Will I ever live for you? … I’ve seen real people live for you … not just going to church; They have relationships with you, and they have peace and joy.”

Despite many secular media outlets reporting that the march was advocating “conversion therapy” McCall set the record straight. “This freedom march was about the transformational power of the holy spirit,” he declared.

“I had wanted to kill myself,” McCall continued in his testimony.  “I was spiritually

McCall decided it was time to make a choice.

“‘If I follow you, it will be all the way.  I don’t do things half-way.  I didn’t do things half-way in the world;  I’m not going to do things half-way with you,’” he told the Lord. “And so I took all my life as Scarlett and I went to a dumpster and threw it all away—the clothes, the hair, the make-up, the jewelry, the shoes, my whole identity—I threw it away to follow Jesus.”

Now living a life for the glory of Jesus Christ, McCall concluded his testimony with a prayer, urging others to give commit their lives to the Lord.

“Father God … I thank you that the lies and deception that have been placed on our country are about to begin to break.  Lives will be transformed today. People will see, through the telling of our stories, the power of the Gospel, the power of the blood of Jesus Christ,” he prayed.

Thousands march for life in London

Thousands of people have taken to the streets of London to share a pro-life message.

The fifth annual UK March for Life reportedly attracted 4,000 supporters, with pro-lifers marching through Westminster.

The attendance is a record high for the event, which was held in the capital for the first time.

‘Galvanising effect’

Roman Catholic Bishop John Keenan urged pro-lifers in attendance to continue taking a stand in public.

“You have no idea of the galvanising effect your courage will have if you stand up before the British media courageously, even under attack, and be pro-life. You’re setting the seeds of the next generation.”

“We will win this battle by truth, but we will win it even more by courage”, he added.

Pro-life support

Clare McCullough of the Good Counsel Network and Rachel McKenzie of post-abortive support group Rachel’s Vineyard spoke at the event.

In total, there have been nearly 9 million abortions in Great Britain since the 1967 Abortion Act was passed.

Significantly, mothers who had been helped to choose life stood on the platform alongside their children.

Latin America

On the other side of the world, over one million people marched for life across several countries in Latin America.

In Peru, a reported 800,000 attended a pro-life march in the capital city of Lima, while in Colombia, 400,000 people took part in marches in 53 cities around the country.

Trump’s accomplishments

Would you really prefer to have a “more presidential” chief executive who promotes socialism, open borders, abortion, sexual anarchy and the criminalization of Christianity? The Left, which turned a blind eye to the flagrant immorality of Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton, is ordering evangelical Christians to abandon Mr. Trump. Before too many well-meaning people take the bait, a reminder of what Mr. Trump has accomplished might be in order.

Here are a few other things that Mr. Trump has done:

  • Appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch and more than 75 other constitutionally sound federal judges, 30 of whom are serving.
  • Reinstated an expanded Mexico City Policy blocking foreign aid from being used for abortions.
  • Cracked down on illegal immigration and “sanctuary cities.” As Attorney General Jeff Sessions put it: “The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our laws, and the catch and release policies of the past are over.”
  • Issued an order killing two federal regulations for every new one. In actuality, 16 were cut for every new one in his first year, saving billions.
  • Engineered a historic tax cut that will save money for more than 80 percent of American households.
  • Withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, ending the threat of U.S. governance by international bureaucrats.
  • Reversed onerous Obama environmental rules that gave the EPA ham-handed authority to destroy the coal industry and abrogate landowners’ rights.
  • Kick-started America’s energy sector by curtailing regulations, facilitating the Keystone XL Pipeline and opening up vast federal areas to oil and gas exploration.
  • Presided over an economic and stock market boom, lowered unemployment and brought manufacturing jobs back to America from overseas.
  • Rebuilt the nation’s military, destroyed ISIS, and faced down North Korea’s “Rocket Man.”
  • Issued an order enforcing First Amendment protections for religious liberty.
  • Restored the freedom of military chaplains to espouse biblical morality, and essentially reversed Mr. Obama’s transgender military policy.
  • Revoked the Education Department’s order that public schools allow gender-confused males access to girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.
  • Cracked down on sex trafficking. President Trump signed a law allowing states to move against sex-ad Internet sites, and the Justice Department on April 6 seized and shut down Backpage.com, which carried ads for prostitution, including trafficked children.
  • Overhauled the mismanaged Veterans Administration and gave veterans more healthcare choices.
  • Replaced ObamaCare incrementally, beginning with a repeal of the individual mandate.
  • Imposed sanctions on Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship and revised Obama’s deals with communist Cuba.
  • Recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and repaired damage that Obama did to the U.S.-Israel relationship.
  • Worked with Central American nations to crack down on MS-13 gangs.

Okay, let’s stop here, though it only scratches the surface.

A question for Mr. Trump’s conservative critics, including some well-meaning evangelicals who rightly express concern over character: Would you really prefer to have a “more presidential” chief executive who promotes socialism, open borders, abortion, sexual anarchy and the criminalization of Christianity?

Here are just a few likely outcomes had Mrs. Clinton won:

  • An explosion in government funding for abortion.
  • The LGBT political agenda on steroids, with the Justice Department attacking Christian business people who won’t bow to Baal.
  • Tax increases – not a tax cut – to fund a vast expansion of nanny government.
  • ObamaCare morphing into a single-payer, socialist government monopoly.
  • Federal agencies like the EPA and the IRS re-weaponized against political opponents.
  • More radical judges like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Kagan and Sotomayor. Maybe even Chai Feldblum on the Supreme Court.
  • Hordes of new federal bureaucrats drawn from the ranks of MoveOn.org, NARAL, the ACLU, the Human Rights Campaign and the Women’s March.
  • “Pink hat day” throughout the federal government on Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s birthday. (No reported plan; it just makes sense.)
  • Massive illegal immigration, along with the Justice Department attacking states that have strong voter ID laws.
  • A shutdown of all inquiries into Clinton corruption, such as missing emails, Russian money flowing into the Clinton Foundation, or the Clinton-Russian connection in the 2016 election.
  • A naïve foreign policy that would have emboldened Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran to test American resolve.

 

Are These Undeniable Signs We Are in the End Times?

Image result for end times images

Are we living in the biblical end times? That’s a question that has consistently emerged over the past two millennia, with scores of Christians wondering when Jesus’ Second Coming will unfold. It’s a topic that famed Christian author Joel Rosenberg has often discussed, as the prophecy expert routinely shares what he believes the Bible says about the end of days.

Rosenberg, author of the new book, The Kremlin Conspiracy, said during a recent appearance on PureFlix.com‘s Pure Talk that he believes humanity technically entered the last days once Jesus came, died, rose and set the gospel message into motion.

While Rosenberg said the Bible tells us not to date-set, he pointed to signs that he believes indicate that humanity is moving further toward the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

“I don’t know when, I don’t have a date … but if you look at all the prophecies … one wonders,” he said. “You see a lot of global chaos .. more Christians have been slaughtered in the last century than at any other time in human history—and that’s saying something, because we’ve been often slaughtered.”

It was rebirth of Israel in 1948, though, that Rosenberg believes is quite significant, as he called it one of the “main prophecies” in the Old Testament, pointing back to Ezekiel 36-39 as one of the places where Israel’s re-emergence is prophesied.

Rosenberg also addressed claims that “Gog of the land of Magog” referenced in Ezekiel was forewarning of a leader from Russia. Based on his reading of the text, Rosenberg explained what his interpretation of the still-unfulfilled events would be.

“The one-day, future evil leader of Russia is going to form an alliance with Iran, Turkey and some other hostile countries to come and surround and attack Israel in the last days,” Rosenberg said, adding that these events could still be hundreds of years away.

That said, he believes Russia’s activities in Syria and relations with other dangerous players like Iran and North Korea should raise some eyebrows.

“I don’t know what to make of it, but it’s not good,” he said. “Vladimir Putin is more dangerous to the United States and our way of life than radical Islam. And I don’t think most Americans process it that way.”

Regardless of what happens, Rosenberg said that it’s essential for Christians to pray for peace in Jerusalem and the surrounding nations and lands.

He also encouraged Christians to step in and, when possible, help deliver humanitarian relief to those impacted by the chaos and carnage currently raging in the Middle East.

Florida Middle School Students Face LGBT Coercion, Manipulation

Yet another teacher, this one in Florida, is pushing the LGBT agenda on students. (Joe Goldberg via Flickr)

A 14-year-old male eighth grader at Tavares Middle School in Lake County, Florida brought home a printed note last Friday, given to him by his teacher, encouraging him to participate in the “Day of Silence.”

GLSEN, which stands for the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, designated Friday, April 27 as “a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people at school.”

Some of the GLSEN coercion includes allowing students “supportive” of “Day of Silence” to refrain from verbal participation in classroom instruction, while those who do not participate in “Day of Silence” must prepare to answer class questions.

The middle school student’s note from his teacher read: “I’m staying silent on GLSEN’s Day of Silence. It’s a national youth movement highlighting the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people at school. Nearly 4 in 5 LGBTQ students don’t see positive LGBTQ representation in their curriculum, nearly 9 in 10 experience verbal harassment, and almost a third miss school for feeling unsafe or uncomfortable. But together, as part of GLSEN’s Day of Silence, we can break the silence of LGBTQ students! But together, we can break the silence, making our school more inclusive for all.”

The note also directs students to a text number or website address. The note provided by the teacher encourages students to text to sign up for recurring text messages from GLSEN.

The website also provides middle and high school students with a plethora of propaganda, including a “Breaking the Silence Letter Generator” to automatically receive a customized letter to share with school administrators and request LGBTQ-inclusive support at their school. Teachers can also register on the website to get the latest updates on “Day of Silence” resources including free streaming of LGBTQ-inclusive classroom documentaries.

GLSEN’s educator guide encourages teachers to require students ages K-12 to engage in numerous forms of coercive, group political activism, disregarding the parents’ desires or the students’ religious beliefs. Students can either “go along to get along,” or risk being “outed” as disagreeing with the teacher and GLSEN’s radical LGBT viewpoint.

“This teacher at Tavares Middle School has no business promoting GLSEN’s “Day of Silence” coercive political activities to innocent middle school students,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “A teacher’s job is to teach academic curriculum, not promote a personal agenda and bully students into following a pro-LGBT agenda. We will not allow the school to ignore this inappropriate and unconstitutional bullying behavior in the classroom,” said Staver.

New Ten Commandments Monument Installed at Arkansas Capitol to Replace Destroyed Decalogue

United States (Christian News Network) – A new Ten Commandments monument was installed on Thursday on the grounds of the Arkansas capitol building after a mentally ill man destroyed the first Decalogue display last year with his car.

“The sole reason that we donated this monument to the state of Arkansas is because the Ten Commandments are an important component to the foundation of the laws and the legal system of the United States of America and of the state of Arkansas,” said Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Conway, who leads the American History and Heritage Foundation, the non-profit entity that raised funds for the monument’s installment.

The unveiling of the display was met with applause from those gathered to witness the occasion. Over 800 people had donated to the cause.

“Thou shalt have no other gods before you,” Lanelle Tippit told local television station KARK. “If you do that, then everything else will fall in place.”

“This is what our country was founded on is God,” Tippit’s husband, Doug, added.

However, a number of opponents also were present for the dedication, including those who identify as Satanists.

“Satanism represents free thought, individualism,” attendee Chris Russell told the outlet. “Basically, you are your own god. I’ve never subscribed to the Christian religion. It’s never resonated with me.”

NUS: Help drug-taking students get more money

Students who are caught with drugs should not be reported to the police but could be given help to get more money, the NUS has said.

In a joint report with the drug activist group Release, the student body said discipline for drug taking should include “support to access a bursary if a student is facing financial pressure”.

It also called for students found taking drugs in their accommodation to be merely given a warning, rather than evicted.

Stress

‘Taking the Hit’ analysed both student and university approaches to drugs through a questionnaire and freedom of information requests.

It is for Parliament, not the NUS, to decide the law on drugs.

Chris McGovern, Campaign for Real Education

Of 2,810 students who responded, 39 per cent claimed to currently use drugs, with cannabis the most common substance.

Over half of drug users said they had taken cocaine, with two thirds admitting to taking ecstasy.

Reasons for taking drugs included attempts to “enhance their social interactions” and to attempt to deal with stress.

Police

Just 14 per cent had “come into contact with the criminal justice system” as a result of taking drugs.

According to the report, most universities and colleges used ‘formal warnings’ in their repertoire of actions against students in possession of illegal drugs.

Only around one in four incidents in 2016-17 were actually taken to the authorities.

Flexible

In response, the NUS called for ‘flexible’ disciplinary outcomes.

“This should also consider whether alternative outcomes might better tackle the root cause of drug-related misconduct (eg support to access a bursary if a student is facing financial pressure)”.

“Students should not be reported to the police or permanently excluded from their studies for simply possessing a drug”, it added.

Damaging

But Sir Anthony Seldon, vice-chancellor of the University of Buckingham, said drug use “needs to be made far less socially acceptable”.

Such substances, he said, “are profoundly damaging on the minds of the young, especially those with a propensity for mental health problems”.

Chris McGovern of the Campaign for Real Education said: “It is for Parliament, not the NUS, to decide the law on drugs.

“University authorities should not involve themselves in aiding and abetting criminal behaviour at the behest of student leaders.”

20 US lawyers give 5 busloads free advice at border

Illegals on top of train

Approximately 20 volunteer United States immigration attorneys have traveled south of the U.S.-Mexico border to Tijuana to hold legal workshops and counsel a caravan of some 400 Central American asylum seekers who have snubbed warnings of separation from their children and detention before deportation.

After traveling to the northern border of Mexico’s Baja California State, the Spanish-speaking American lawyers met with about 300 of the 400 defiant migrants – excluding 100 children – to provide them personal legal advice and immigration information at Tijuana’s largest migrant shelter … before they illegally cross the border.

Free legal consultation for aspiring illegals?

Journalists were not permitted to sit on in on the free legal sessions given to five busloads of migrants – free workshops that were also held at a gallery that previously served as a secret entrance to a cross-border tunnel used by smugglers to transport illegal drugs into San Diego, California.

“Lawyers reportedly offered information about the U.S. asylum process while children of the migrants played in the background,” TheBlaze announced from an Associated Press (AP) report on the workshops. “Migrants were also warned that they could be separated from their children and face detention if they are allowed to stay in the U.S.”

Even though it was reported that many of the migrants met with U.S. attorneys one-on-one for private legal consultation, one organizer of the defiant pro-immigration display insisted that the lawyers did not coach the aspiring illegal immigrants on what to say once they turned themselves in to border agents.

 “We always emphasize you have to tell the truth,” Alex Mensing – who helped lead the Pueblos Sin Fronteras group’s anti-Trump display – told AP.

One Southern California lawyer participating in the event claimed that the caravan traveling through Mexico – while crammed into five old school buses – was warned by the attorneys giving free advice and information that they could be separated from their kids and be detained for months.

“We are the bearers of horrible news,” attorney Nora Philips from Los Angeles said, according to AP. “That’s what good attorneys are for.”

Not on our watch …

President Donald Trump and his tough-on-immigration administration reaffirmed its strong condemnation of the asylum-seeking migrants who set out from Central America to test the commander-in-chief’s tightened border enforcement.

Aware of the 400-strong group’s plan to turn themselves in at the San Ysidro border crossing in San Diego – where 75,000 enter the U.S. daily – the Trump administration has been monitoring its northward migration since March from Guatemala through Mexico and called their attempt to illegally enter the U.S. and bypass its immigration laws a threat to the U.S.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions specifically addressed the Tijuana caravan and vowed to send more immigration judges to the U.S.-Mexico border to decide the immigration cases of the migrants – if they enter the U.S. illegally.

“[The caravan is] a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system,” Sessions asserted, according to Fox News.

Other administration officials also reiterated America’s tough rhetoric on immigration – a stance that many conservative critics argue was lacking during former President Barack Obama’s two terms in the White House.

“Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said any asylum seekers making false claims to U.S. authorities could be prosecuted, as could anyone who assists or coaches immigrants on making false claims,” Fox News reported.

She stressed that the caravan migrants should also be seeking protection in the first “safe” country to which they travel – including Mexico and numerous Central American nations, according to TheBlaze.

Ongoing border battle

Those joining the anti-Trump border stand have amassed for months, and the president is using the defiance to bolster his 2016 campaign promise to erect a continuous 2,000-mile wall spanning the U.S.-Mexico border from California’s Pacific Coast to Texas’ Gulf Coast.

“As many as 1,000 people had joined the caravan as it crossed Mexico,” TheBlaze’s Teri Webster informed. “Trump and other officials portrayed it as proof of an unsecure border and support for the border wall he wants to build.”

Attempts to overcome Trump’s augmented border security have increased while Obama’s failed DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program – which provides a path for citizenship to children of illegal immigrants – continues to stall in Washington.

“Administration officials and their allies claim asylum fraud is growing and that many who seek it are coached on how to do so,” the AP noted. “The Border Patrol said ‘several groups’ of people in the caravan have entered the country illegally since Friday by climbing a dilapidated metal fence – it didn’t say how many people.”

Once illegals break into the U.S. illegally at the southern border, a number of things could happen.

“Asylum-seekers are typically held up to three days at the border and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE],” the AP report added. “If they pass an asylum officer’s initial screening, they may be detained or released with ankle monitors. Nearly 80 percent of asylum-seekers passed the initial screening from October through December – the latest numbers available – but few are likely to eventually win asylum.”

Even though many enter the U.S. illegally, an overwhelming majority fail to be granted asylum – but most remain in the country as illegal aliens still benefiting from holes in the system.

“Mexicans fared worst among the 10 countries that sent the largest numbers of U.S. asylum seekers from 2012 to 2017, with a denial rate of 88 percent – according to asylum outcome records tracked by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Action Clearinghouse,” AP relayed. “El Salvadorans were close behind with a 79 percent denial rate, followed by Hondurans at 78 percent and Guatemalans at 75 percent.”
