Virginia Watchmen Council and America’s Black Robe Regiment join Fredericksburg Virginia patriots in disapproval and censure of U.S. Senate candidate Daniel Gade

FAITH NEWSWIRE – In recent debates involving the three Republican candidates vying for the US Senate seat of incumbent Mark Warner, were U.S. Army Lt. Col. Daniel Gade, Army reservist Tom Speciale and Nottoway County teacher Alissa Baldwin. All were asked a series of questions, to which they had already responded in a written survey. In live debate, the Virginia Watchmen Council and America’s Black Robe Regiment found Mr. Gade’s responses on important policy questions, to be vague and contradictory to his previous survey responses.

One such question involved the religiopolitical doctrine known within Islam as “Shari’ah.” Mr. Gade was asked, “Should Shari’ah be excluded from American Law and Jurisprudence?” Mr. Gade’s response left much to be desired. He responded by impugning the question as “misleading, in failing to respect the fact that the Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land,” and “there is no other, uh, there’s no religious law, there is no, you know, the Bible is not the supreme law of the United States. The Constitution of the United States is, and for that reason sharia law is not going to be a threat in that way…”

Gade continued, “But I also want to push back a little bit on some of the tone of what I’ve heard here tonight because remember the religious people who happen to be Muslim who are living in Virginia now peacefully going to church … these are deeply religious people they’re pro-life, they’re pro-marriage they’re pro-small government; don’t they just want to be left alone? So, what we need to do … we need to be doing as much outreach to these communities as possible to those who are willing to live under the supreme law of the land the Constitution of the United States.”

Mr. Gade also revealed another area of ignorance when he falsely stated that, “The Virginia legislature just passed something that on the Federal level is called the equality act which forces the churches and places of worship and things like that … other places of worship to accommodate people who are transgender and their bathroom preferences, and such …” Written statements of faith and hiring policy were specifically exempted in the legislation. The exemption is found in § Section E, Virginia Code 2.2-3905, which is unambiguous, “The provisions of this section shall not apply to the employment of individuals of a particular religion by a religious corporation, association, educational institution or society to perform work associated with its activities”

For these and other reasons, we have withdrawn our approval for the candidate, and herewith disapprove and censure him. If there are additional questions, please contact Rev. Michael Hirsch at the phone numbers below:

And the leaves are for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:2.

The Olive tree bears crop, fruit for many different applications. Firstly, its fruit the olive is a great nutritious appetizer. Secondly, its oil is potent and has been used by Jesus, Hippocrates, kings and queens, Olympians and champions of faith and healing all over the world for centuries.

The Olive leaf makes a marvelous mystical tea. The olive leaf has properties that studies show of being able to fight viruses, support digestive system and has been used centuries ago to fight malaria. It fights mucus in the system quickly, and supports great immune function. The tea is pleasant tasting and good with a bit of honey if you please.

The Master’s University Re-Opening Statement | COVID-19 Update, May 14, 2020

FAITH NEWSWIRE – In the midst of these unprecedented, uncertain times, the Lord has been gracious to The Master’s University and Seminary. He sustained us as we finished out the semester, and we know He will continue to guard and guide us as the summer begins. We are experiencing the truth of Psalm 18:2. “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”

Now, as we look ahead to the 2020-21 academic year, I and the board of directors want to clearly state our intentions. They are two-fold:

1.) We are excited to reopen the university and seminary campuses this fall. The plan to reopen includes a return of campus housing, in-person classes, and athletic events. We are preparing now to meet our incoming class and transfers and to reunite with returning students. Over the summer, a number of construction and renovation projects are scheduled on the university campus. Many will be completed by the start of the fall semester, and they are going to significantly upgrade classes, dorms, and common areas of campus.

2.) As we prepare to reopen, we will prioritize the well-being of students, faculty, and staff. To that end, I have commissioned a task force of key administrators: leaders from university health services, academics, housing, student life, athletics, communications, enrollment, finance, and campus operations. They are meeting regularly and working to ensure that when our campus reopens, it is safe and in compliance with national and local mandates for our community. They are also working to make sure our campus is reasonably aligned with recommendations that health officials have for institutions of our size and scope. It is our understanding that the State of California intends to offer guidance for reopening campuses in the coming month. That guidance may differ by institution size, mission, campus setting, and region. Until we have this guidance and can evaluate how it will shape our particular campus, it would be premature to articulate a specific plan to our students and their families.

Again, we are eager to reopen both our TMU and TMS campuses this fall and offer in-residence instruction, athletics, and campus housing with appropriate adjustments necessary for the safety and health of our campus community. We will provide updates as the situation continues to unfold, and we receive additional guidelines from the State of California.

On a personal note, I want to say how much I am looking forward to the return of our students to campus this August. I also want to encourage each prospective student, returning student, and our campus family to prayerfully ask God to establish the work of our hands as we submit our institutional plans to His great plan. He knows the end from the beginning, and in Him we trust for the safety and security of TMU, TMS, and ultimately our own lives. Lord willing, we are planning on a great Fall semester, and I want to encourage each prospective and returning student to make plans to join us!

With anticipation for a great Fall,

Dr. Sam Horn President of TMUS

Evangelical online platform seeks to reach the lost and serve local churches

FAITH NEWSWIRE Dubai. May 2020. Jrevolution is an evangelism and discipleship ministry which aims at reaching the lost primarily through online and social media channels, but also serves to help Christians reach effective discipleship through their 7 part Jrevolution discipleship program – which is available online (YouTube) or can be completed in face to face sessions in certain cities or via webinar. While the key focus is millennials and younger men and women, people from many different age groups have completed the program and anyone can do it from anywhere.

The program is more than just a Bible study or discipleship program, but the power of this program is the actions that participants are asked to complete for a few minutes a day between the program which will help them effectively study the Word, understand how to hear from God, and grow in spiritual maturity as well as develop habits that they can use throughout their lives in order to continue growing and impacting others for Christ.

Even mature Christians have gone through this program and felt that it was useful in centering themselves back on God and prioritizing their lives around Christ again. While many are in difficult situations be it spiritually emotionally and financially due to the current crisis, we would like to encourage to draw closer to God and find encouragement and comfort in His Word and His promises at this time.

Jrevolution would also like to encourage Christians who maybe feel like God is calling them to disciple others – either one on one or in groups, but are not sure where to start or begin to make use of our content and resources to help them achieve this. There is a facilitators pack available and anyone can email to get the facilitators pack shared with them.

Lastly Jrevolution is actively building partnerships with churches across the nations and is offering to train leaders to run the programs with their members if they don’t have any discipleship programs running – or alternatively run the program with their young adults and youth which is a key focus for Jrevolution. Jrevolution is passionate about evangelizing and discipling and will also come alongside churches where invited, to help them recognize and utilize the evangelism gifts that that exist within their churches. Depending on resources and location Jrevolution will also come in and run the program by invitation with churches. If you are a church and are interested in getting in touch to discuss any of the above, you can email the team on

Founder & Director, Outreach, Christine Kuun says,’ JRevolution stands for evangelising to change mindsets to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. The online channels we use (namely website, social media channels etc.) will outwardly not look or appear very religious or too “Christian” as a way to grab the attention of those who are lost, desperate, and looking for answers –but would never consider going to a church or religious gathering. We will use various methods online to get their attention and direct them to our online videos, webinars or live broadcasts. Once someone accepts Christ, they will have access to our discipleship program (either face to face and/or workbook) which consists of 7 topics over 7 weeks. This will give them the basic tools they need to start their walk and relationship with God.’

Co-Founder & Director Church Partnerships –Shamon Lortan, adds, ‘Throughout the program we re-iterate the importance of being placed and serving in the local church. Through our church partnerships we will place individuals in churches where they can grow and be fed. The Jrevolution Program is made up of seven Sessions and concludes with reiterating commitment to our Lord and His church either in the body the individual is already placed in or in one that is most accessible to him or her.’

Jrevolution has already conducted training programs in person and online benefitting young and not-so-young disciples who have undertaken the program and have grown into maturity as well as being better placed to serve in the churches they attend.

Director–Operations, Michelle Potgieter says,” We call it a revolution because we want to change the world by the power of the Holy Spirit – to win hearts, minds and souls and open more people to the voice of the Spirit. Jrevolution is looking for church leaders who would like to open their doors to learn and teach the course, receive disciples and lead those who are called to greater service and participation. We are happy to receive content in line with our vision to publish online and to promote interaction in the church community.’

Jrevolution intends to start with administering the discipleship program and continue with Question & Answer Forums, Testimonials, Online Discussion Groups and many more activities to engage the Church Community so that the message of the gospel is heard all over the world.

About Jrevolution: Jrevolution NPC is a ministry registered as a religious non-profit organization (registration number 2018/308330/08) in South Africa. The core vision of Jrevolution is to reach the lost via the internet & online mediums as well as to help equip churches to evangelize and disciple their members (with a special focus on youth and young adults). The leadership team consists of Christine Kuun, Shamon Lortan and Michelle Potgieter and they are joined by likeminded believers from all around the world who subscribe to their vision.

What do I have to learn from my time of crisis? Solitude? Boredom? Brokenness? Inspiring author releases new book.

FAITH NEWSWIRE – Christine Mallouhi is a remarkable woman. Well known to many for her work in bridging the gap between Muslim and Christian communities, she lived in the Middle East and Africa for over thirty years. In her third and latest book, Whispers of Presence, she gathers the wisdom of Celtic, Ignatian and Benedictine Christian saints as well as Sufi mystics, folded into a collection of daily reflections, prayers, poetry and wisdom sayings.

She combines insights from her challenging experiences of life in the Middle East and the West and the quiet strength of her mentors in a work that fosters deep awareness of the presence of God in ordinary daily events.

An introduction leads briefly through her spiritual journey over decades in ministry in Muslim communities when she lunched with President Arafat and was invited to meet the Patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church, Sheikh Fadalallah; the spiritual leader of Hezoballah and Brother Andrew. She was also featured on Aljazeera’s series Friends of the Arabs.

She hosted celebrities in her home, including Suha Arafat, film actors Bernard Giraudeau and Lauren Hutton. She told me, “For a girl from a simple working class family who followed a call of God expecting to get lost in the Arab world, it was a journey that was wonderful, wearying and wild.”

When she lost both her siblings in tragic death and suicide, she experienced “loss of health, a fair amount of my sanity and my faith flame was an insipid blue.” Hers is a story of discovering the healing practice of silent and contemplative prayer.

“The practice of stopping in stillness that I am writing about was one I wish I had cultivated more deeply earlier in life,” Christine stated. “Thirty years in the Middle East had been dramatic and chaotic. These countries became known for the Arab Spring, when their peoples rose up against oppression. In these places, where locals were deep friends, our residence visas were suddenly rescinded and too often we beat hasty retreats to a new country to begin again.

“One or all of us experienced imprisonment, death sentences, betrayal, dislocation, demonic attack, deportation, war, evacuation and lost dreams. I suffered a few bouts of clinical depression. God often gave us miracles so badly needed, but I was worn out spiritually, emotionally and mentally with the intensity of living on the edge.”

She tells me that “God’s question to Adam and Eve, ‘Where are you?’ has a new urgency today. This book is the fruit of her journey over the past decade of returning to faith still with passion after burnout, and the search to answer the question, ‘How can I find God in this situation with all its darkness and live in peace, even if it never changes?’”

As one reviewer writes, “[This book] will take you to deep places in the journey of awareness and personal transformation.”

This is Christine’s second book released at a time of crisis. Her previous book Waging Peace on Islam was published after the devastating 9/11 attack in New York, but was written a year earlier. So, when she urged readers of the need to understand what drove the first attack, one reviewer observed that her words were prophetic.

In 2020, our world has suddenly been brought to a standstill, while millions are buffeted with waves of turmoil, shock and fear in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. “People are stopping to reflect on life and their inner selves and looking to God for comfort,” Christine said. “I hope sharing the fruits of my search for peace and stability in a time of turmoil is a prophetic word of comfort.”

Whispers of Presence is a reliable guide on the journey into God’s love, penned by a wise hand who has navigated life in remarkable circumstances. It is now available globally.

Queens Naturopath Identifies Tree that Bible Says Can Heal Nations

FAITH NEWSWIRE – A naturopathic doctor in Queens, NY has identified a tree that according to Dr. Simone Lord, “has mythical powers to heal the nations. Its leaves are potently anti-viral and have been used for centuries to treat malaria, flu and other plagues.”

Dr Lord says that she was inspired to find something to help people ‘fight back’ by her 8 year old grandson, who believes in the power of her herbal remedies.

Her path as an pastor led her to the leaves of a mysterious tree written about by St John the Theologian, (who was exiled in Patmos, Greece) in the book of Revelation called the tree of life. The passage in Revelation 22 verse 2 described that the leaves of this tree were for the healing of the nations. Dr. Lord believes this tree to be the olive tree.

According to a 2008 interview with Adelphi University’s Anagnostis Agelarakis, scientist, anthropologist and cultivator of olives in Crete, “Hippocrates used olive oil-based ointments for all kinds of uses and for treating trauma, scratches, wounds… it was considered to have healing power.” Agelarakis went on to say that the Greek “considered the olive  not only as a health product but something that had in essence a divine power embedded in it–defined in a pragmatic way not in a occult or abstract way.”

The Greeks used the olive leaf as symbol of peace, prosperity, health and wisdom. Their Olympians and other athletes used olive oil to rub their bodies down before games. The olive leaf was/is a symbol of peace and used as a symbol of truce in Greece.  In Noah’s time, the dove brought back an olive leaf to show that it was safe to leave Noah’s ark.

Olive leaf has been studied to be anti-viral plant that can treat stomach issues. According to, “Olive leaf extract is a natural source of wellness with therapeutic properties that are:

gastroprotective (protects digestive system)
neuroprotective (protects central nervous system)
antimicrobial (inhibits microorganism growth)
anticancer (reduces risk of cancer)
anti-inflammatory (reduces risk of inflammation)
antinociceptive (reduces pain stimuli)
antioxidant (prevents oxidation or cell damage)

These properties mean that olive leaf extract may help with weight loss, heart health, and herpes breakouts.”

According to, “Olive leaf extract has been researched for its antimicrobial and antiviral activity: In vitro and animal studies show that olive leaf extract has some potential activity against the influenza virus. (8) Research suggests that olive leaf extract may reduce the infectivity and inhibit the replication of viruses that cause colds, influenza and lower respiratory tract infections – further clinical trials in humans are needed to validate these findings. (8) Olive leaf extract has been shown to stimulate phagocytosis – which may enhance the body’s response to a viral infection. (8) Gargling olive leaf tea may alleviate symptoms of a sore throat – potentially due to a reduction of inflammation and viral infectivity. (8) Over the past 10 years, in vitro research has demonstrated that olive leaf extract is effective against a wide range of pathogens. (9,10-17) Specifically, oleuropein has been shown to have invitro antibacterial activity against some gram-positive and gram-negative human pathogenic bacterial strains. (11) Despite the antimicrobial effect of specific biophenols found in olive leaf extract, research shows that the antimicrobial activities of the combined phenolics has a similar or better effect than any one individual biophenol. (18) To date, there are no human clinical trials which evaluate the effect of olive leaf extract against pathogens for common infections.”

Olive leaf tea is one of the most common, traditional herbal teas used among Mediterranean people to treat disease. (38) It has been used for centuries for the treatment of conditions and diseases such as the common cold, malaria and tropical illnesses.

According to an April 14, 2020 article in, “Greece’s efforts at keeping the country virus-safe appear to be paying off: in a population of just over 11 million, there were, 2,145 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 99 fatalities, far lower than elsewhere in Europe. Italy to date has registered 20,465 deaths.”

“We have seen the power of preventative and natural medicines like the olive tree. We have been using olive leaf tea, olive oil and other natural remedies, elixirs and decoctions made at our juice bar, including fervent prayers to keep us, our family and our customers safe.  So far we have been doing fine. Some customers who have complained of  viral symptoms are also improving quickly. We offer free olive tea to all essential workers including pastors.” said Dr. Lord.

New Book Designed to Bring New Life to Dying Rural Churches!

FAITH NEWSWIRE – Colorado Springs, CO / May 8, 2020 – CrossLink Publishing is pleased to announce the release in paperback and eBook formats for the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble Nook, and the Apple iBookstore of Rural Church Turnaround by Danny Davis of Odessa, MO.

Dr. Josh Laxton, Assistant Director of the Billy Graham Center says, “Danny’s book provides a blueprint for how struggling and declining rural churches can weather the storm of turnaround.” Jon Sanders, podcast host of Small-Town Big Church says, “Danny shares stories of hope as he outlines principles and practices necessary for a rural comeback strategy.”

Declining or plateauing rural churches do not have to die! They can live and become an influence for good in their communities. Unfortunately, many rural churches will close after decades of faithful service. Fewer rural people are attending church. Young people are leaving their hometowns, searching for better educational and economic opportunities elsewhere. Rural church leaders find themselves working with aging congregations, dwindling budgets, and a sense of hopelessness that weaves itself into the fabric of church life. Revitalizing a declining or plateauing rural church requires visionary pastoral leadership and the cooperative work of lay leaders.

Together these leaders face their challenges head-on transforming their congregations into vibrant centers of impactful ministry. In this book, Davis explores real-life experiences of rural pastors and lay-leaders who have led their congregations to a turnaround. He provides an honest and sometimes painful glimpse into the realities of leading a declining rural church, including his own, back to life. Through these experiences, you will learn to navigate a myriad of cultural changes needed to revitalize your dying or plateauing rural congregation. The journey to rural church turnaround is hard, but Davis lays out the leadership characteristics and actions essential to making it happen.

Rural Church Turnaround (ISBN: 978-1-63357-205-8), Trade Paper, 147 pages, $9.95, CHRISTIAN PASTORAL RESOURCES from CrossLink Publishing, is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold.
