The San Fernando Valley northwest of downtown Los Angeles is bordered by a quartet of mountain ranges that serve as the boundary of the huge fertile plain. Once home to thousands of acres of orange and lemon trees, after World War II most of the citrus groves gave way to middle class neighborhoods, parks and shopping centers.
It was in this sprawling suburban enclave known by Angelenos as simply “the Valley” that, in 1969, a young pastor named Jack Hayford found himself sitting at a stoplight in his car, not far from a small, struggling congregation called First Foursquare Church of Van Nuys. God spoke to him, confirming his calling to the church. Little did Hayford and his wife, Anna, know that the Lord would soon plant and root them there to nurture and expand a ministry beyond their wildest dreams.
Late Tuesday night, a friend of Tony Suarez’s text him with the news that Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s bid for a second term had failed. He was stunned with the news.
A pastor and the Chief Operating Officer of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Suarez had prophesied in September 2022 that Lightfoot, the first openly gay person to lead the city, would not serve a second term. Lightfoot lost her Democratic primary for the mayor’s office Tuesday to Paul Vallas and Brandon Johnson, who will meet in a runoff in April for the position.
When he received the text, he went straight to the Chicago Tribune’s website to affirm what Darryl Hooper had told him.
Pastor Greg Locke says satanism indeed is becoming prominent in the secular world, and he believes the new movie “Come Out in Jesus Name,” produced by Locke Media, will spark a revival through deliverance this country has never seen before.
The lead pastor at Global Vision Bible Church in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, Locke says he and those who participated in making the film “underestimated the hunger and thirst” for deliverance they are now seeing in the body of Christ.
The movie is set to run in as many as 2,000 theaters nationwide on March 13 and 14. You can purchase tickets here.
