There is so much at stake in the November 4th Elections that it has become incumbent upon me to share some perspective -- especially with those of you who have spiritual eyes and ears, and understand what is at stake.

Anyway..... Good Morning all you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed folks!

The French Press is full and ready to pour, and the Expresso Machine is brewing.  If you're ready for the best cup of coffee you've had in a long time (maybe ever?) stop in and join me.

It may already be obvious to most of you (if not all) that I am a Conservative when it comes to political philosophy.  On second thought, let's be clearer.  I am a Constitutional Conservative.  For those of you Coffee Break readers in other nations, a "Constitutional Conservative" is simply someone who believes that our nation's founding fathers established a Constitution they intended as an anchor for this nation's future.  

Our Constitution is not simply a "living document" subject to change according to the mores of future generations.  It is not simply the thoughts of our forefathers set on paper as a general guide to our nation's behavior and conduct among its citizens, as well as our stance toward the world at large.

The Constitution of the United States came into being over a span of several decades, being formed in and with the blood of American Patriots who believed America was a unique nation whose creation would serve as a model for freedom-loving, God-fearing and God-loving people the world over.

As I noted in the rather lengthy Coffee Break series, THE AMERICAN COVENANT, our forefathers had a vision for a nation where the Gospel of Jesus Christ would be freely preached, where people in all walks of life (including those serving in government) would have the liberty to share their faith in Jesus Christ without restraint.

Despite the rulings of several Supreme Courts where liberal, left-wing justices have attempted to diminish liberties of Christians under the guise of "separation of church and state" -- a phrase which appears nowhere in our Constitution -- Americans have for more than 230 years enjoyed the freedom to worship and to express their faith in God and in the Lord Jesus Christ as no other nation on earth.

Within the past few years, however, Christians have seen encroachments on their freedoms, their liberties and their freedom of speech such as would absolutely horrify our founding fathers.  The efforts of atheists and God-haters have been the continual drum-beat of a march against righteousness and holiness.  There has been a collaborative and combined effort to liberalize (in the worst sense of the word) standards of behavior that have stood the test of time for centuries and millennia.

Homosexuals have sought to "normalize" aberrant behavior and force an acceptance of their abominations on the 97 percent of society which lives heterosexually.  Worse, they've gained the support of left-wing politicians and leaders in getting cities and states to pass laws allowing homosexuals and lesbians to "marry."  And it hasn't stopped there.

California now has a law on the books making it a crime to speak out against this deviant behavior, and efforts are underway in at least two states to criminalize preachers and church-leaders who use clearly-defined Biblical texts to define homosexual behavior as sin.  Efforts are underway in Congress to define as "hate-speech" and "hate-crimes" commentary and actions which prohibit special favors or recognition for the so-called "gay" community.  Some are even trying to compel churches to hire people who live homosexual or lesbian lifestyles as teachers and/or youth leaders.

The Internal Revenue Service has been being pushed to rescind the tax-exempt status of churches and religious organizations who speak their minds and convictions concerning the stances of various political candidates.  Major news organizations have reported in the past few days that a group of 33 pastors have decided to make the IRS's effort a federal case and push it to the Supreme Court.  The pastors have decided to defy the regulations denying them their right of free speech and speak out against certain candidates who support the wholesale of murder of unborn babies through various abortion procedures.  Some of them have taken very public stances against laws promoting or advancing extra rights and privileges for homosexuals and lesbians.  This is a growing movement.  More and more Christians have decided to stand up and be counted -- no matter the cost -- and resist this demonic tide in the U.S.

Less than four weeks from now, we will be going to the polls to select a new President, Vice-President, 435 members of Congress and 30-odd Senators.  Never has there been a more critical time for Christians to get out and vote.  Never has there been a more opportune time for believers to shape the coming years of our nation.  A recent Gallup survey suggests that 57% of U. S. citizens consider themselves "evangelical, born-again" Christians.  More than 75% of Americans quickly call themselves "Christian."

We are the majority, folks!  Christians -- born-again believers in Christ Jesus -- easily make up a majority of all voters in America.  For us not to bring in righteous change in this electoral cycle will be to abdicate our responsibility as the body of Christ.

Yet far too many Christians are being sucked into the mantra of "change" by the left, either because they are sick of the Iraq War and just want to see it over, or because their standard of living has been impacted by the economic meltdown, or because the MSM has done such a thorough job of repeating lies about the current White House Administration and blaming it for all of America's ills, declaring that "change" -- any change (!) -- "is better than what we've had."

I'm the first to admit that the current administration has made some wonderful boo-boos, not the least of which is their "Road Map to Peace" in the Middle East.  Land for peace is a farce.  A "Two-State Solution," at least under the proposed concept, is nothing more and nothing less than an invitation to World War III and a holocaust that will make Hitler's "Final Solution" look like child's play.

Selling Israel down the river and compelling them to give away half of Jerusalem and a third or more of their rightful land in order to have a co-existent "peaceful" neighbor in Palestine is the "Road Map to America's Destruction."  As my childhood hero, Winston Churchill, was wont to say, "Peace at any price is no peace at all."

Are you getting the picture, folks?

Let me share with you a few news items you may not be aware of.

One of President Bush's advisors (and I'm trying to find his name) discovered (or was advised of) a direct correlation between a series of 50+ natural and man-made disasters or catastrophes spanning the past several years, and adverse decisions by the White House (including past administrations) towards Israel, its defense, attempts to negotiate peace between Israel and the Palestinians, and efforts to compel Israel to give away its land in order to secure peace.

Two days prior to Hurricane Ike striking the Gulf Coast, President Bush denied a request from Israel for 1,000 bunker-busting bombs.  Whether those bombs were intended for a potential air strike against Iran's nuclear facilities or for missile silos currently being built in the hills of southern Lebanon just across the border from Israel is unclear.  The fact is that the President denied Israel's request under the pretext that it could inflame tensions between the Palestinians and Israel even more.

Just as Hurricane Ike struck the coast, one of President Bush's advisors went to him and showed him a direct correlation between just the previous three disasters and adverse decisions he had made within 24-48 hours prior to each disaster.  As Ike was coming ashore, President Bush received the warning and reversed himself, notifying the Israeli government that the U.S. would sell them the bunker-busting bombs.  He also reversed an earlier decision denying them an advanced radar-warning system capable of detecting something as small as a basketball being launched up to 2900 miles away, agreeing instead to sell Israel that defense capability.

My personal sense is that the damage from Ike was mitigated as a direct byproduct of his decision.  It could have been another Katrina (which, by the way, also came directly on the heels of an adverse decision by the White House towards Israel) with a huge loss of life.  Though the damage from Ike was still considerable, the loss of life was greatly diminished.

Here's another news item.

Thanks to a piece from Jim Bramlett (former VP of CBN and longtime brother in the Lord) I contacted Washington-based Dr. Flo Ellers, who travels in evangelistic and prophetic ministry.  Flo was present in a Portland home-meeting in August where Bree Keyton (a Kansas City-based evangelist) was sharing shortly after Bree returned from Mombassa, KenyaFlo provided me with a recording of the gathering in which Bree shared how she had been in the Obama household in Kenya, and Bree subsequently pointed me to some videos of her sharing.

Barack Obama was born in Mombassa, (there is reportedly a record and registry of his birth in Mombassa) and an incantation spoken over him (and his cousin, Odinga) by the local witches and warlocks declared that he and his cousin would both become the leaders of their nations.  (Odinga has been fighting against Kenya's current Christian president and seeking the presidency for himself.  Bree says -- and local elders attest to it -- he has made a pact with Satan.)

Obama's record of birth is currently being contested in Federal District Court in Philadelphia (John Christian Dyer, October 3,, and Federal Judge R. Barclay Surrick, who has ordered Obama to produce a "vault copy" of his birth certificate.  That's not the primary issue, however, where we're calling for prayer.  As Bree Keyton visited the homes of the elders in Mombassa, they told her the witches, warlocks and Satan-worshipers arise every morning at 3:00 AM to pronounce curses against John McCain and Sarah Palin so that Barack Obama will be elected.

They also told Bree that in January of this year, Obama visited his tribe and home.  He went to every elder's home where they have a shrine to worship their "genie" and asked them for their blessing on his presidential campaign.  Barack Obama's grandmother sacrificed a black and white chicken to the "goddess of the river" so both blacks and whites would love him and vote for him.

Finally, Bree Keyton said that those who practice their occult chants and spells regularly "weave lazy 8's" around McCain's mind in order to bring confusion to him as he travels about and campaigns.

If you haven't gotten the message before, you should by now!  People, it's time for believers in Jesus Christ to exercise the spiritual authority they have in prayer and intercession!  It's time for the sons of God to stand up and be counted!

The fate of America hangs in the balance with this election as never before.  We have the authority in the realm of the Spirit to ensure that our electoral process is not manipulated by evil spirits and an outcome determined by ruling demonic spirits (principalities: Ephesians 6).

As the apostle Paul wrote, "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."  (Philippians 2:9-11)

It IS at the name of Jesus -- the onoma: the character, the power, the authority, the very essence of who Jesus is -- that these wicked spirits MUST bow; and WE must exercise that name above the names of these wicked spirits.

In our next Coffee Break, I'll share with you some personal experiences in the realm of spiritual warfare and the results of taking specific authority over curses.

Proverbs 26:2 tells us that, "As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come."

The point of this Word is that a curse can be caused by inaction on the part of God's people.  There is absolutely NOTHING in God's economy that is automatic.  Every Word, every promise, every piece of the Covenant to which we are entitled requires our participation.  We must agree with the Word.  We must command God's Word.  It is an absolute necessity for it to come out of our mouths for it to be activated.  If we stand by idly and just "let" things happen, we are as guilty as those who initiate evil.

The Scripture tells us that both Father and Son have done all they are going to do.  Hebrews 10:12-13 tell us, "But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool."

We're the ones who accomplish that!  If we don't do the commanding, nothing is going to get done.  If we don't take the authority given us by and through Jesus Christ with His anointing, the enemy literally gets away with murder.  If we don't defeat the trickery, the deception, the lies and the treachery of Satan, he just goes on with his routine day after day after day after day.  It is up to us to stop him.

It is up to us to stop the curses coming against John McCain and Sarah Palin.  We simply cannot stand by and allow these demonic efforts to succeed.  The point is that Satan is an absolute pipsqueak whose power is so far beneath that of believing Christians there is just no comparison.  

Will you help me do that between now and November 4th?

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We have been instructed to pray, "Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven."  We are the implementers of His Will on earth, and unless we implement it in prayer, in intercession, and by putting feet to our prayers by voting on election day, we're not much good as representatives of His Kingdom.

That said, make sure you pray.  Then vote in accordance with the Word of God.  Then keep on praying!

"Our own Country's Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the Supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions - The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and shew the whole world, that a Freeman contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth."  -- George Washington (General Orders, 2 July 1776)

"While voters are acquainted with the duties which they owe to their God, to themselves, and to men, they will remain free. But if ignorance and depravity should prevail, they will inevitably lead to slavery and ruin. "  -- Samuel Huntington (Signer of the Declaration of Independence)

The Blessing of the Lord: it makes rich and He adds no painful toil and sorrow!  (Proverbs 10:22)  Be blessed!
