KRAUTHAMMER: RUBIO IS MOST LIKELY TO WIN GOP NOMINATION

 Columnist Charles Krauthammer named Florida Senator Marco Rubio his pick as most likely to be the GOP nominee on Friday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.

Krauthammer was asked by fellow panelist Steve Hayes how he would allocate his money if he was given $100 to go Las Vegas and bet on who will be the nominee. Krauthammer put the most money, $40 on Rubio, with $30 going to Jeb Bush, $15 to Scott Walker, and the remaining $15 on booze. He added “he’s [Rubio] my underestimated dark horse candidate who threads his way, young, energetic. He’s got a program and I think if he runs against Hillary, the contrast say the vigor, the energy that Kennedy-esque idea will be be a major one.”

Amy Walter, National Editor of the Cook Political Report put the most money on Walker, giving him $40, with $25 going to Bush, and the remaining $35 split evenly among the entire field.

Hayes gave Walker and Rubio $30 each, $15 to Jeb Bush, and $10 to Ted Cruz, with the remaining $15 going to the field as a whole.

Good Friday April 18 marks the beginning of a remarkable tour.

You want to know the truth?  They went after our children with a vengeance unseen in history.  A harem of Hollywood operatives seduced them.  A battery of activist University Professors bullied them.  A malignant media provided a smoke screen and a poisoned well of politicians flat-out lied to them. The younger generation was seduced by promises of a better life.  

But the God haters took it to another level by turning moral teaching into hate speech.  George Orwell said, “In times of universal deceit telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”  

Isaiah said, “They say that what is right is wrong and what is wrong is right; that black is white and white is black; bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.” -Isaiah 5:18-22

George did not mean revolutionary in the way we have come to use it i.e. “a revolutionary way to wax your car.”  He meant that those who spoke the truth would be deemed enemies of the state.

Listen to Charles Krauthammer, “The left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

“The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian,” he explains. “It declares certain controversies over and visits serious consequences — from social ostracism to vocational defenestration — upon those who refuse to be silenced.”

Because of this and many other factors experts say American youth are a lost cause to Christianity.  How can we expect to counter the onslaught of modern evil and win the young?  How can we expect to compete with such monstrous power?

The answer is to take a closer look!  If you do you will see that a door of opportunity has opened.  Youth have seen the beast!  They are feeling the aftermath.  The brave new world of justice and prosperity never dawned.  The equality never transpired, for that matter neither did the medical coverage, the prosperity or the promised of hope and change.  What they do see is an angry self-serving tyranny that has endangered their future.

The wreckage of his administration and the cruelty of his actions toward political enemies are now painfully clear to youth in America.

In a detailed, national poll released last month by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, nearly half of young voters said they would recall President Obama if they could. Think of that!

There is a great door opening to us and here is what we are going to do about it.

Good Friday April 18 marks the beginning of a remarkable tour.  Mario Murillo and Jennifer Azzato will team up to bring Living Proof to Northern California.  Living Proof is not just a slogan but the literal goal of this tour.  In each and every city that is included in this tour will come a night where the claim that Christ is the Son of God will be backed up with miracles.

simplicity

As we see it, California leads the nation in this deception and this is where we need the miracle to start.

We need to declare truth!  The problem is not global warming…it is moral cooling.   We need miracles that will verify God’s love.   This tour provides the atmosphere for supernatural evidence to touch all who are willing to receive.  These are not nights to debate the existence of God but to experience the power of God.

The enemy we face is sophisticated, organized and well-funded.  Any endeavor with a human origin is doomed from the start.   Going forward, we must saturate our plans in prayer and only apply solutions from the Holy Spirit.  The ideas must come from Him. We will find the strategies we need, the words that will silence our enemy and the miracles that will confirm and convince a secular generation.

Join us in prayer and if you live within driving distance of one of these Living Proof events bring someone who needs Christ or a healing miracle.   Here is the Calendar of events:

Obama falls into the trap that he laid for Romney.

 

Obama set the trap and fell into it himself.  Obama went small and Romney went big.

It was a clear an answer to prayer.  In the debate, Romney avoided every trap that was laid for him to look like a bellicose warmonger.  Instead, as Charles Krauthammer said, “If you had been on a desert island the last four years and didn’t know who these two men were, you would have thought that Romney was the president and that Obama was the challenger.

Here is more from a Charles Krauthammer interview with Megan Kelly right after the debate:

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I think it’s unequivocal, Romney won. And he didn’t just win tactically, but strategically. Strategically, all he needed to do is basically draw. He needed to continue the momentum he’s had since the first debate, and this will continue it. Tactically, he simply had to get up there and show that he’s a competent man, somebody who you could trust as commander in chief, a who knows every area of the globe and he gave interesting extra details, like the Haqqani network, which gave the impression he knows what he’s talking about. But there is a third level here, and that is what actually happened in the debate.

We can argue about the small points and the debating points. Romney went large, Obama went very, very small, shockingly small. Romney made a strategic decision not go after the president on Libya, or Syria, or other areas where Obama could accuse him of being a Bush-like war monger. Now I would have gone after Obama on Libya like a baseball bat, but that’s why Romney has won elections and I’ve never had to even contested them. He decided to stay away from the and I think that might have actually worked for him.

What he did concentrate on is the big picture. People don’t care what our policy on Syria is going to be. They care about how America is perceived in the world and how America carries itself in the world. And the high point is when he devastatingly leveled the charge of Obama going around the world on an apology tour. Obama’s answer was ask any reporter and they will tell you it wasn’t so. That’s about as weak an answer you can get. And Romney’s response to quote Obama saying that, ‘we dictate to other nations,’ and Romney said, ‘we do not dictate to other nations, we liberate them.’ And Obama was utterly speechless.

So that is the large picture, America is strong and respecting. What Obama did is he kept interrupting, interjecting and his responses were almost all very small, petty attacks. The lowest was when he’s talking about sanctions that are old. ‘When I was working on sanctions you were investing in a company in China.’ I mean that is the kind of attack you expect from a guy who is running for city council for the first time, that’s not what you expect from the president. A personal attack about an investment when talking about Iran?

I thought Romney had the day. He looked presidential. The president did not. And that’s the impression I think that is going to be left.

MEGYN KELLY, FOX News: Mitt Romney sounded a bit more dovish, less bellicose than some, perhaps on the right wanted to hear. How will that play?

KRAUTHAMMER: Well, I think those on the right like me, who would have loved for him to have been bellicose and love the near fisticuffs will understand exactly why Romney did it. He stayed away from the pitfalls. He did not allow himself to be painted as a war monger. This is what Reagan understood in 1980, he did it extremely well. So Romney did and I think this could help him win the election.

Out of the ashes of American disaster: A miracle.

In this blog I want to finish what I said yesterday.  I expressed my deep concern that the  White House will do anything to win reelection.  Then I told you about having a supernatural reaction instead of being distracted.  Now I want to talk to you about why I believe a miracle is waiting in the wings.  Out of the ashes of American disaster will rise a miracle.

First, I want to ask you a big question, why should you listen to me?” Consider this: I went to Berkeley and collided with astounding hostility against the Gospel of Jesus for a decade.  It was hardcore, intellectual, and well organized.  God called me there to win souls, and see revival, but from every angle it was an utterly impossible task.

How God took our group on campus from a handful to two thousand strong is like a page out of the book of Acts.  But the most important result of my time on campus is only now coming to light.  This is because the intellectual deception that drives the White House was hatched in Berkeley.

The best example Berkeley/Chicago style radicalism is the way that they seized healthcare. Charles Krauthammer said,  “Obamacare passed the Congress without a single vote from the opposition party — in contradistinction to Social Security, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, Medicare and Medicaid, similarly grand legislation, all of which enjoyed substantial bipartisan support. In the Senate, moreover, Obamacare squeaked by through a parliamentary maneuver called reconciliation that was never intended for anything so sweeping.” Obamacare will give the government control over 1/6th of the economy. Can you imagine where our economy and the church will be if we sign up for four more years of this?  

This is why I am bringing up Berkeley. In that bastion of leftist radicalism a miracle came out of nowhere.  .

I believe we are already seeing supernatural answers to prayer.  Despite the fact that our media is now part of the Obama reelection campaign, his approval continues to fall and mistakes he wanted hidden have been exposed. Was the microphone was left on accidently as Obama told the prime minister of Russia “This is my last election. After my election I [will] have more flexibility,” Obama continued. “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin]”?

God would have spared Sodom and Gomorrah for just twelve righteous people.  America is home to millions upon millions of godly Christians who are working hard, raising children and faithfully paying their taxes and their mortgages.  They did not live above their means.  They did not take any bailout money.  They have not bowed their knee to the gods of abortion or gay marriage.  A child of three can see that if God would have spared Sodom and Gomorrah for twelve righteous people then how much more we can expect God to spare the vast number of righteous Americans.

Yes the battle is great and the forces allied against us are strong, well organized, and fantastically financed.  We cannot compete on any human scale.  Do not entertain that thought…not even for a moment.  It is an exercise in futility and wastes precious time and resources.  This battle belongs to God!

All of this can backfire on the devil because he always goes too far.  Here are some examples:

Persecution is waking up a giant. The American church has been deeply divided and isolated from itself and the outside world for years.  The recession, political correctness, and the overreach of government  has caused pastors to pray together awakened them to stop preaching a compromised gospel. Blatant attacks are always a mistake against the church of Jesus.  It reminds of our joy, authority and the reality of the supernatural.

Millions of youth are under the radar.  Because it is a great threat to their agenda, the media is not reporting the growing spiritual hunger of our youth.  Vast numbers of them are migrating back to youth groups and churches, and the surprising thing is that they are drawn to on fire churches and not to the hi-tech designer churches.

God is in a miracle working mood.  Never in 44 years of preaching have I heard or seen such dramatic healings in such abundance. A vast blanket of signs and wonders is covering us now and reports are pouring in from everywhere of healing.

It may seem right to buy a cabin in the woods and load it with survival food, but before you do consider what I say.  You  will be distracted from  the great harvest of souls that is coming.  You would forfeit the greatest intimacy with God you have ever known. You will miss the Grace of God that would have made you strong in impossible situations.  You will miss the great anointing that God will grant to every one of His soldiers in the hour of testing!  You would be sidelined in the church’s finest hour.
