Paula White is set to pray with President Donald Trump at the inauguration. But she’s coming under massive verbal persecution in the days leading up to the big event. The following is White’s response:
In recent days, I have read a great deal of false information being reported about me, my theology and my past. I have been called a heretic, an apostate, an adulterer, a charlatan, and an addict. It has been falsely reported that I once filed for bankruptcy and—my personal favorite—that I deny the Trinity!
I have hesitated to even address such patently false accusations about my personal life and my beliefs so as to not dignify them with a response, but since these comments pose a potential distraction to an otherwise celebratory and historic time in our country, I would like to set the record straight in the hope of returning our collective attention to what’s most important.
Known for her perverse and even Satanic performances, 58-year-old Madonna this weekend denounced the nation that made her an international superstar.
During a fundraiser for the African nation of Malawi at Art Basel, the nation in which her 11-year-old adopted son David was born, Madonna went ballistic on America and its president-elect. Specifically, she announced she’s ashamed of how our government as treated Native Americans.
"It just really makes me feel ashamed, ashamed to be an American, ashamed to be a human being really," the Associated Press reported her as saying.
Madonna is also ashamed of Donald Trump. She displayed photos of billionaire businessman-turned-politician on the big screen at her concert while singing a rendition of Britney Spears’ 2003 hit song “Toxic.” The not-so-subliminal message: Trump is toxic.
I agree that what the American government did—breaking every covenant we inked with the Native Americans—is absolutely shameful. I agree that many of Trump’s actions have been tremendously “toxic.”
Kim Clement went home to be with the Lord Thanksgiving week. Now, many are giving thanks for the prophetic worshipper.
Clement had experienced health issues, including a brain bleed, for more than a year before his untimely death. He was 60.
“Kim and Jane have been our close friends for over two decades, and our lives and ministries seemed at times intertwined,” said TBN’s Matt Crouch. “Kim revealed profound biblical truths with his unique style of prophetic teaching and worship—truths and revelations that have literally helped shape our ministry and our future. Today Kim is with his beloved Jesus. And while Heaven is a richer place, he will surely be missed by all of us who were impacted by his ministry and friendship."
Kim Clement has gone home to be with the Lord.
The prophetic worshipper has been health issues, including a brain bleed, for over a year. Last December, he suffered a brain aneurysm doctors said was likely caused by an infection in the heart. The family issued a statement on the sad loss.
Bill Johnson, the senior leader at Bethel, is speaking out today after massive backlash for his statements on voting for Trump. I can relate, at least on a smaller level, to what he is dealing with.
After writing two articles that didn’t even mention Trump—Prophecy: On Election Day, a Kingdom Will be Toppled and Prophecy: After Wicked Kingdom Topped—Jezebel Curse Broken Off America—I was called a racist, told I was mentally ill, and it was suggested more than once that I should spend eternity in hell. I’m grateful to those like Alveda King who stood with me during a rough week of curses, witchcraft, slander, accusations and more.
I’ve included Bill’s statement in its entirety below. Saints, I appeal to you to pursue love and peace. A house divided cannot stand (Mark 3:25) and the devil is trying to divide us so he can advance his wicked agenda in the midst of the strife. Please, let’s put an end to this now.
In the wake of a trio of national headline-making events in Orlando—the gay nightclub massacre, Christian singer Christina Grimmie's murder and the alligator attack that killed a toddler at a Disney resort—prophetic voices in the nations are praying hard. Many are pressing in to discern what confederate of spirits has marked Orlando—the city in which I was born, went to college and met my daughter's father and where my parents still reside—for destruction.
I agree it's important to discern the enemy's attack. Surely, we need to understand what spirits are operating in a city that Cindy Jacobs prophesied last year would be in the eyes of the nation in 2016. It's vital not to be ignorant of the enemy's devices (2 Cor. 2:11). Yet many of the strongholds along the I-4 Corridor—which connects Orlando to Tampa, Florida—have been in place for a decade or more. It doesn't take a prophet to see the princes over Orlando.
I had no clue the 2016 Summer Olympics were in just two weeks. I have been knee deep in reporting on terrorist attacks, shootings and other violence in America and around the world.
At about 6:30 Wednesday morning, I heard these words in my spirit:
ISIS and other dark forces have formed a confederacy that will orchestrate a coordinated attack at the Olympics. The plan calls for attacks on every side and in diverse manners. Suicide bombers are being trained to infiltrate the perimeter with new tools and tactics and with mass carnage in mind.
Over 200 intercessors gathered in Orlando recently to praise, worship, pray, prophesy and wage war against anything that opposes God's will. Honestly, it was one of the most powerful six hours of intercession I've ever experienced.
I'm hoping to see this harp and bowl style meeting rise up in cities across the nation. Order and Spirit-led liberty marked the meeting. Under the leadership of Ken Malone of Forerunner Ministries, we took authority over the seven mountains, we cried out to God for our families, we prophesied the Lord's will in the region and more.
Early in the meeting, the Holy Spirit told me He wanted to deal with thrones in the region. He revealed that worship takes place at altars and many have focused on tearing down the altars built to Baal, Jezebel and other false gods. That's appropriate, of course, but He also showed me people also worship at thrones and he wanted to dethrone some of the demonic seats of iniquity.
Faith comes by hearing. That's the Scripture that inspired the Charisma Podcast Network, which just surpassed the 1 million download mark.
Launched less than a year ago by visionary and Charisma Media publisher Dr. Steve Greene, CPN features a variety of shows, including news, leadership, inspiring stories, women's topics and more. All told, we've developed 11 unique shows for this growing network as readers keep coming back asking for more.
"I believe in the power of the pen, but the Holy Spirit showed me the power of the spoken word. Podcasting allows Charisma Media to reach hungry Christians who enjoy listening to Spirit-inspired content in the car, at home or anywhere else," says Greene, who has worked in TV station management at major stations and in marketing capabilities with Fortune 500 members. "I knew our audiences—and new audiences—would appreciate this mobile audio platform and that our advertisers hoping to reach this target market would flock to it."
I first met Nikki Mathis at a conference where Dutch Sheets was ministering. When she put her hands to the keyboard and lifted up her voice, I heard the sound of revival.
I've since enjoyed listened to her albums: Sounds of Rain, Overcome and her latest, Radical Love. She even recently put out a Portuguese album called Me Chamas para Teu Fogo, which translates My Flames for Your Fire.
I recently sat down with Nikki to find out what inspires her music and why music is so vital to the next great move of God:
