    Why We Should All Celebrate Emancipation Day, Jan. 2

    Jan. 2 is Emancipation Day, marking the anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, which started the ball rolling to free all Americans from slavery. Our organization, the Emancipation Network, takes its name from the Emancipation Proclamation, and we also strive to free Americans from slavery—debt slavery. The author of the Emancipation Proclamation, Abraham Lincoln, is our

    Join Kenneth Copeland and Lou Engle in These Healing Prayers for the Body

    This week, we are in the midst of praying through the 40-day Jewish season of repentance, Teshuvah. The word “Teshuvah” literally means to return to the presence of God.

    How Spirit-Filled Believers Must Pray to Demolish This Abominable Curse

    Four hundred years ago, on Aug. 20, 1619, the first African slave was brought to Virginia. Along with him came the curse of slavery. The slave trade is as old as humanity, with African slaves being sold to Arab slavers long before Europeans appeared. The Europeans, however, took slave trading to a whole new level

    Why Astrology Can’t Trump God’s Future for You

    People are always coming up to us and saying things like, “I’m a Leo. What does the Star Bible say about that?” Even some Christians still dabble in the evil occultic practice of astrology. Those “Leos” think that the astrological dates they see in the papers for Leo, July 23 to Aug. 22, are correct,

    America’s Godless Liberty Will Lead to This Scary Reality Unless the Church Steps Up

    Just 10 days after the Americans celebrate their Revolution, the French celebrate theirs, on Bastille Day, July 14. The two revolutions could not have been more different. The Americans honored God in their Declaration of independence. The French, on the other hand, adopted the atheistic, anti-Christian values of the French Enlightenment and set out to

    Why the Church Desperately Needs to Recapture the Spirit of Declaration Day

    On July 4, we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence and call it Independence Day. Actually, our Independence came seven years later, in 1783. On July 4, 1776, we made a declaration of our basic principles, and so the holiday should really be called Declaration Day. Our Founding Fathers declared first of all

    Harbinger of Destruction? US Experiences Record-Breaking Rainfall This Year

    Record rains and associated climate concerns are big news today. We thought it would be a good time to bring in some historical perspective from Brian Fagan’s classic book, The Little Ice Age.

    30 Years Later, What Christians Should Know About China’s Horrific Tiananmen Square Massacre

    Thirty years ago, on the night of June 3, 1989, the Chinese Communist Party murdered thousands of democracy demonstrators in Tiananmen Square.

    What Jesus Would Tell Us This Memorial Day

    Today on Memorial Day, the U.S. pauses to remember those who gave their all in our defense. Warfare is one of the oldest activities of mankind.
