Not only did they provide her a Christmas tree that she did not have, but also the presents that her son could open Christmas morning. See the inspiring and encouraging story as we continue to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas, and so much more. Greg shared in this segment.
The Real Presidential Election Hasn’t Happened Yet? Electoral College.
If someone were asked about the Presidential Election, some may consider the elections that just took place in November. But, did you know that the real election for the next President of the United States hasn’t even happened yet? The votes that were cast in November wasn’t for the President, but for the choosing of the electoral votes in each state that will vote this upcoming Monday, on December 19th. This is the Electoral College.
As Prager University explains it, “The President and Vice President of the United States are not chosen by a nationwide popular vote of the American people, rather they are chosen by 538 electors.” Each state has equal representation by having a certain number of representatives based on their population. Meaning that there are more representatives in Texas than there are in Massachusetts. If America was purely democratic, than the voting would focus only on the “majority vote” and not the “popular vote”. As Prager University continues, “pure democracies do not work, they implode…in a pure democracy, bare majorities can easily tyrannize the rest of the country”. If this were the case, Presidential candidates would primarily focus on the states with the largest populations.
Every American who cast their vote in November chose one particular candidate. At the end of the Novemeber elections, each of the 50 states was either Democractic or Republican. Now it is up to each of the state’s political party’s electors to cast their vote for President. Their vote is this upcoming Monday, December 19th, and it is this election that will be final. Continue to not only pray for this upcoming election, but for a peaceful transfer of power, and the days leading up to President Elect Trump becoming President Trump. See the full explanation from Prager University, and so much more. Also shred in this segment: electors, senators, swing states, and voting. Greg and Steve shared in this segment.
Has Much of the Church Become Institutionalized? The Price of Freedom! Jesus Came So That We Could Be Set Free!
Rick Joyner has written multiple prophetic books that have been revealed to him by the Lord. In one of his books, The Call, he writes about an encounter that he had with Christians. From a distance, he could see that their sight was limited, but when he stood close to them, they could see. Turns out that they were seeing from the light that was in Rick’s life. What he was seeing is that some people are in, what could be described as, prisons. Around these gatherings of Christians were high walls, and on top of these walls were guards.
In Rick’s experience, he noticed there was one hole in the wall in order to escape. But, this hole was full of every fear imaginable. In order to pass through the wall, he would have to overcome every fear. With resolute determination to get outside the walls of this “prison”, Rick made his way through the wall. As Rick continued his journey outside this one “jail”, he noticed there were others jails that Christians could end up in.
