The land of the free and home of the brave is under siege. Is there any hope for our nation, or that we passed the point of no return. Is our fate sealed only destined for destruction or could there be a spiritual revival that would turn the hearts of our people back to God. So many times radio with Jan Markel brought to you by Olive tree ministries. They visited with a radio favorite Michelle Bachmann last week we saw turmoil in the land. Our nation's capital was ground zero for an experience that some are saying was domestic terrorism are just Michelle Bachmann is on the scene reports the fax today. Here is today's program my entire life my entire life I have lived with and next to people who came to America because the country was chaotic in the country was unsafe.

What I saw today what we have seen looks more like those countries in the extraordinary nation that I am privileged to call home. I think about the mockery that makes of our country by the people of China China.

Let me just say something in all modesty, no one hears work hard on the issue. China hate my guts I'm sanctioned pricing, what the sanctioning double sanctioned and I can't travel there wasn't planning to China's laughing loving this tonight in Beijing there high-fiving because they point to this essay. This is proof the future belongs to China. America is in decline. Vladimir Putin does nothing Vladimir Putin could come up with better than what happened here makes us look like one. Total chaos and collapse, not to mention the Ayatollah is probably bragging that he has buddies to his buddies. Look what's happening to the great Satan. I think politics is made us crazy. Everybody in this country has lost their minds on politics. We have forgotten that America is not a government.

America is not a president. America is not a Congress imitate what America is America's your family America's your faith, America's your community. That's America. That's what our adversaries don't understand and that's what we need to remember that is how were going to rebuild this country and turn the page and have a future even brighter than our past. I'm so glad you can join me today for understanding the times radio and I said at the end of 2020 that that year was likely the calm before the storm. Here we are early in the new year and roughly 10 days ago or so.

We had a tragedy in Washington DC in the eyes of the entire world were watching as Marco Rubio was referring to their they saw what appeared to be 1/3 world country.

Not the most powerful nation on the planet. So many Americans felt disenfranchised. They saw us losing the Republic to corruption. Hundreds of thousands perhaps a million Americans wanted their voices heard in Washington DC back on January 6 they wanted to let our politicians who generally ignore them know that we are watching them.

It didn't help that the hundred and 17th Congress was opened on January 3 with a prayer by a apparently United Methodist minister Emmanuel Cleaver. He was clearly attempting to be well I would say, inclusive, and politically correct because he addressed his prayer to any and all gods and ended by saying quote we pray in the name of the monotheistic God Brahma. A God known by many names and by many different faiths.

A man and a woman. Let's play that 62nd clip local congressman Emmanuel Cleaver is drawing national attention for a prayer casing 25 Leslie Aguilar spoke to Cleaver about the phrase that upset some people by now the House of Representatives is the most diverse ever been, but a lot of people prayer congressman Emmanuel Cleaver said to welcome the hundred 17th Congress yesterday was 2 1/2 but it was your last few seconds. It raised some eyebrows man or woman social media lit up with criticism Junior saying Amen means so be it. In Latin it isn't a gender word but didn't stop them from being insane. Newt Gingrich saying the radical madness has begun any Republican representative from Pennsylvania tweeting. Unfortunately, facts are irrelevant to progress it Cleaver says is a woman lying was just a lighthearted time starting out the new year and a new Congress in this manner was only begging for a reply. I think from an angry God.

We had quite an ordeal back on January 6 and someone very familiar to my audience was present that day and looking to bring on Michelle Bachmann here and she actually has a new assignment in life and will get to that a little bit later in the hour, but Michelle was present in Congress that day as a visitor because Michelle step down from Congress January 2015.

I believe it was and has gone on to do other things. And now has a new assignment Michelle, welcome back to the program. Thank you Jan for having me on. Things started out well and you and I have talked about it and actually the day of January 5 and six, as you said to me, it was bathed in prayer both days. Things started out well they ended horrific eyewitnesses said that there may have been many many agitators, but you were present.

Talk to us a little bit about why you are there where you were and what you saw I was fair as a prayer warrior. I was not there is a political person I had been asked to come and speak as a political person at numerous events and be a part of various function, but I wanted to prayer warrior together with other intercessors and what that means is we went up to pray speak peace and we were there on Tuesday in great number of people there multiple different prayer meetings we were praying all day Tuesday and we got up at 7 o'clock in the morning on the sixth, the day of the event and we had a platform and permit and we had microphones and we had worshipers with musicians. We were worshiping the Lord and we were praying as well. I want your listeners to know that this day had been bathed in prayer and even as the events were unfolding of people storming the capital.

The prayer people were facing the capital arms outstretched, praying peace in real time, even as the events were happening. Things didn't stay peaceful very long. You were actually in the capital.

New slipped into a prayer room and you were praying and you eventually were communicating with Mr. McCarthy. Things were going to fall apart very rapidly, but I think his things were falling apart. A lot of people didn't know they were falling apart.

You know if you knew they were know I had no idea I had been outside praying, but I had the intention of wanting to go in that capital, and I wanted to go and for the purpose of speaking to members of Congress praying I have privileges to go and I had my former member card with me and I went to the floor that Is completely restricted now because a culvert they had very few members on the floor of the House of Representatives. They had some members sitting up in the gallery. I was not allowed to sit up in the gallery because I'm a former member.

No one was allowed in.

So I spent some time over by speaker McCarthy's office.

I had said hello to him and I spoke with a number of Republican members of Congress. Then I decided once I couldn't get into the chamber for the purpose of prayer that I would go to the George Washington prayer chapel which is right by speaker Pelosi's office, and it's also just off the rotunda of the capital.

So I went there I was praying for a bit. I had a scheduled meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at 3 o'clock in the afternoon so I decided I would leave the prayer chapel. This was somewhere between two and 2:30 PM and try and make that meeting with Secretary of State Pompeo and then I will come back and pray again inside the capital. As the days events boron and it worked out. It was minutes after I left and walked to the rotunda to get out of the capital that the uninvited intruders came into the capital.

I'm thankful I left when I did because I avoided all of that you called some of these folks agitators. Their purpose was to cause death and destruction. No, let's clarify quickly here because as you and I talk privately you describe to me those that were present for the trump rally and they were good people. Many were godly people somewhere carrying banners or science or carrying Bible verses. Quite frankly, others were carrying flags in other words, these were not people who came to cause any kind of consternation or dissension is the furthest thing from their minds and all of a sudden things started to spiral from very much in control to a little bit more out of control to totally out of control and you said to me. Some of these very good people who had no intention of any kind of rabble rousing got caught up in some of the destruction almost na´vely and innocently explained that yeah activities we've seen before a communist country, and certainly they've been carried out in a cool and what a cool is it an unlawful hostile takeover of a government. These are planned events. This appeared to me that that's what was going on. I don't have evidence.

I'm not declaring that that's what happened, but that's what this appeared to be because I've been many Pro trump event. They are than Dionysus, peace, or would ever meet. Most of them are believers, not all but many of them are believers.

That's all I saw for two days were the nicest, happiest people greeting each other impromptu prayer meeting, springing up despite the question of both not being counted accurately. There hasn't been one riot. There hasn't been one negative event since November, and this certainly was not a negative event.

There were nearly a million people in Washington DC for this Pro trump event on January 6.

People were happy after present trump speech there were an angry speech is even being given the momentum actually was extremely positive in the air. Members of Congress would walk by like Sen. Josh Holly. They were given standing ovation. The crowds were cheering them.

This is not negative there's no swearing on the hearing very positive. It's completely incomprehensible that you would've had this negative disruption happened from this happy crowd. When the breach apparently occurred. I was trying to get out of the capital because I was going to go for this meeting with Secretary of State Pompeo, one of the capital please that you can't leap to the capital.

There is an incident I said what are you talking about. She said well apparently the capitals been breached.

I said I hope she said trump supporters as trump supporters. You gotta be kidding me. These are the night people in the world. Later on I found out what happened. We've seen these same tactics occur in Minneapolis and Portland. These professional helmets that they wear with gas math holding plastic shield to these Mary Poppins like umbrellas that they used to smash windows and gain entrance we've seen all this before and all of these riots. Now the interesting thing is they wanted to transfer the identity of the terrorists who have had this activity in Minneapolis and Portland to the identity of trump supporters. That's a lie.

The trump supporters are not angry agitators that have burned down.

American cities and they were not the people were showing up that day for good purposes. Who did this because I was there with these people.

I don't for a moment believe that they were the ones that did this but the left one, because in a cool a lot of things happen.

Psychological warfare is planned really the final event that happened was the identity theft they stole president trumps identity for who he is, what is accomplished. They stole the identity of trump supporters in the prayer people and the patriots they made us out to look like we were evil terrorists. None of that is true in the media even including Fox news was giving a false narrative that doesn't help one supposedly conservative news such as Sox is given a full snare to which they were.

Yes, I was a member of Congress is office watching Fox.

I couldn't believe it was one I was looking down at the capital and Independence Avenue and with the other. I was listening to Chris Wallace yelling at the TV. What is wrong with you that is not true or Dana Perino or Donna Brazil what they were saying was not what I observed when I was over there and that's what was shocking is that they were writing a false narrative even while the events were playing out and I knew with my own eyes that it wasn't true.

Many did comment that there were agitators at the could have been hundreds of agitators I think and teeth is suspected as the primary agitator stirring the pot. There were some clips. As a matter fact, there are some pictures where you can see some of these folks and some of them have a star and sickle tattoo on various places of their bodies, and I suspect these were the agitators at the same time, there were some good people that seemed to be caught up in the emotion of the moment and only display a clip of a young man and he's one of these trump supporters who got swept up in the promotion of the moment and he said we feel so powerless and we been betrayed by everyone. What are we supposed to do and as a result he got swept along in the emotion of the moment is in the vigils were powerless we been betrayed by Congress been betrayed by the judicial branch would been betrayed by our local government are mayors.

What are we supposed to do. God will judge us for what we did armored and by the blood of Jesus Christ right there is no judgment of the sins against me. Perhaps I did something wrong. I tried to be as respectful as I could was in Larry while still saying what I felt needed to be said. What were we supposed to do what they are American supposed to do normal even listen to us know these people in Congress on these feel like they just don't listen hello can you hear me now Shabbat, but he's raising a legitimate issue here, because only saying is people in Washington will you listen to us. You don't so we got pretty frustrated today, and this young man got caught in the flurry. The young man is exactly right. I had that same conversation with members of Congress. While the events were going on in the member of Congress was saying look these people are right. Nobody is listening to them.

That's rental again. We condemn violence. I don't believe for one moment. It was the trump supporters that were doing the violent.

This man apparently didn't do violent. He just walked in the capital. He wasn't supposed to but he walked in the capital.

There should be a completely different level of punishment for the people who committed the violence versus people who just went in and were swept along that the completely different matter. They shouldn't have to pay the penalty of the instigators and I believe it's the same instigators who instigated and burned down Minneapolis and other city that thinks the same crew broken glass in Minneapolis is a peaceful protest broken glass in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Last summer was a peaceful protest but in DC it's an outrage. There is certainly a double standard going on here. There are some in the Christian community who have commented on this and I just find their comments a little bit perplexing and maybe a not so perplexing when you consider the source.

Beth Moore, who is no supporter of Donald Trump said about all of the activity she said I don't know the Jesus. Some have paraded and waved around in the middle of this treachery today. They may be acting in the name of some other Jesus but that's not the Jesus of the Gospels, and then representative from Life Way, Christian resources in Nashville's name is Aaron earls says quote we need to wrestle with why violent terrorists feel comfortable carrying Christian flags and Jesus saves posters while fighting police and storming government buildings." This is the perception of some who joined the bandwagon of condemnation again a gross misperception of really what went on, at least according to your perception Michelle not the case yet outright. Their premise is that believers did this, yes, and I would say that it absolutely not true and that is not what happened. It was imposters who put on trump clothing for the real agitators and there were perhaps trump people, maybe even some believers who got swept up and went in but I don't for a minute believe that they were the agitators that I entity theft that happiness and this is extremely important that your listeners understand this because the trump movement and the people who support Donald Trump had a very strong case they were making so much so that more than half of the country believed that the election was stolen. That's a huge number of people and so there was an effort to destroy the image of the people who support trump and the real idea that our votes were stolen from a that idea had to be quashed.

Will they did it perfectly. They stole our identity as legitimate inquiring patriots and prayer people and instead they made us look like we were terrorists and like we were the ones that wanted violence that absolutely not true. And I think it's terrible were being divided now in the body of Christ over this issue.

What we need to do is follow truth and embrace truth and I believe we need to know who actually did this and when all is said and done, I believe that it will be proved that it's the same people who did Minneapolis, Kenosha and Portland. Okay, not believers.

You're listening to understanding the times radio and I have on the line from Virginia will explain why she's in Virginia little bit. Michelle Bachmann Michelle represented Minnesota's sixth District from 2007 to 2015.

She ran for President of the United States in 2012. She's a good friend of mine. She hands the headquarter in the Twin Cities so she's currently serving at Regent University will explain that here in just a moment and I have Michelle on well, three, four times a year.

They give these kinds of updates cheese and activists and she was active on January 5 and sixth in Washington DC when well we had some turmoil that's an understatement, but honestly, as Michelle said to me about the event in Washington DC on January 5, six, it was like a family reunion. It was nothing like it was being portrayed in the media, even by conservative outlets, but that there were actually trump supporters we paying realizing they were being used.

One asked to explain what you mean by that Michelle has been a hard year as we all know, yes. 20. It has been reported here. So after the crowning achievement is that our votes were stolen we had voted for a certain way of life in the United States. We are ruled by the consent of the governed. This is the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower counseling which gave our country ruled by the consent of the governed majority vote, we voted more people voted for Donald Trump for president than anybody had ever voted for Pres. before I refer people to the Gateway for more information on all the evidences of voter fraud. The Gateway what we saw, then, is that they're very likely with the manipulation so that the people vote wasn't certified at the end so that Donald Trump would have a second term as president. This was a legitimate concern that people had, and as was stated earlier, the courts didn't listen. Now the politicians weren't listening, what were people supposed to do will again.

They weren't there with the intention of violence.

They were thousands of people there with the intention of prayer and they were in fact praying I want to commend your audience. Your audience stepped up and prayed for this election. Many pastors open their pulpit to encourage the congregation regarding what the Bible says about a believers duty and prayer to vote for righteousness to vote for the Bible and here is the great news. According to George Barna, Senior fellow at family research Council. His research shows the almost unbelievable number that of the 22 or 23 million Americans who are spiritually active and governmentally engaged. That probably includes most of your audience.

22 to 23 million of that amount. 99% voted that is never an Amazing work of that 99%. They voted 97% for Donald Trump.

Donald Trump received 7 1/2 million more votes from evangelical Christians in 2020. Then he did in 2016 and he got the highest number of votes from evangelical Christians ever in 2016 and four years later 7 1/2 million more voted. Add to that Franklin Graham's March brain repentance. Believers stepped up and did what they were supposed to do for well over six months, believers have been regularly praying and fasting and that's what I saw in Washington DC on January 5 and January 6 believers fasting, praying, worshiping over this whole process. The whole trajectory of the moment. You could feel it was Devon happy in the air and then this event happened this tragic destructive moment when we saw.

I believe agitators run up smash historic windows gain entrance and I will tell you is a former member of Congress. It's hard to figure out the inside of the capital. It's really tough to figure down to figure out where to house chamber was Nancy Pelosi's office.

I had that staffers take me there good I couldn't figure out where they were. That's true in members of Congress have only been in session for three days. By the time this event happened you don't have people off the street randomly break and go in and nowhere to go and capital police wouldn't have stopped them along the way that big plates that have to travel a lot of miles.

We even saw videotape of people breaking through capital. Police did nothing. Then fact even open some of the gates to let us ruin it for the oddest thing I've ever seen. But that's why it is my opinion this was a planned coup and unlawful takeover of government and they did it through psychological pressure tactics with members of Congress at the long story. What we saw was unbelievable. I believe that there was a satanic content you installed in that day, but I also believe the positive is it leading up to this event.

I think was the greatest time of act of worship by believers wanting to pursue righteousness in the United States through our government so I want to commend them and we need to trust the Lord on this in his sovereignty because believers up to this point were doing what they were supposed to do. I thought they were fasting. They were praying they were not the bad actors in all of this is is so going forward. Does that mean now we get out of government who don't pray anymore. We don't fast anymore. We don't vote anymore. It doesn't mean that it all. That's what the left want your audience to believe back away from government back away from being involved in our society. The last wins. We take that message that would be the wrong message to glean from all of this. In fact, it's just the opposite. I commend your audience. They did exactly what they were supposed to do, God will honor this, although it looks like a failure right now. Ultimately it isn't because what it is we are a part of the Hebrews 11 believers where we did what we were supposed to do. We look forward to biblical promises, even though we didn't see the fruition of it. We acted in faith the way that God wanted us to to pray into righteousness and act righteousness God will honor that. A lot of these people Michelle that were partaking that day.

These are folks that see us losing the country losing to socialism losing to communism losing to globalism the politicians who don't care about us on both sides of the aisle. We been called terrible things from deplorable's Mr. Biden has called us the dregs of society. I'm talking about conservatives now you can only take some of that so long before you decide what's gonna push back so some million people came to Washington back on January 5 and sixth and decided to do exactly that. Just express their right to peacefully protest and peacefully presents another message.

Then things spiraled out of control and work on it discussing what happened and I think to Michelle and we can talk about this in my second half of the program here because I need to take my midpoint break pretty quickly. I think the left was trying to extinguish the conservative movement and of course they're not going to be successful they may discourage us, but they will never completely silence you myself my audience.

Those that participated in this event back in January 6 where I can I give up work that can put her tail between her legs and slink away working. I come back I promise you were coming back for more. I'll be back in just a couple of minutes don't go away.

Also his journal Christian television so honored to partner with Michelle Bachmann several times a year for timely.

This is the balance of so if you want to understand the real hatred of this agreement level loathing of Trump and say New York or Washington or LA you got understand that first is that really Trump. It's his voters. The new money class despises them didn't despise him. That really was his secret in the didn't have much in some ways, but Donald Trump did not judge his own voters in real life actually eat McDonald's. That's true, and they knew it was true and they were very grateful for you.

Be grateful for two if everyone else hated you. Pretty soon, like 13 days from now. These voters tens of millions of them will not have Donald Trump to protect no one of anyone unless the Republican Party decides to wake up and push back against the lies in progress and acknowledge the purpose of those laws, which is unprecedented cracked on the way you live, you will have no chance either folks there is an unprecedented cracked down on the way you live coming.

It's called persecution. It's on the way and will talk about it here. We'll talk about it in the next few minutes will talk about in the coming weeks of actually got couple of pastors scheduled to talk specifically about some Christian persecution that's going to come our way. Thanks to this new administration.

I'm referring quickly here to an article I have in front of neighbor to return to Michelle here in just a second. And it's an article out of the Federalist I referred to earlier in the programming 28 times the media and the Democrats excused or endorsed the violence committed by left-wing activists after excusing it, ignoring riots from leftists all year Democrats and their allies in the media are ready to condemn riots. Now that the turmoil has shifted to fit their narrative. This article goes on again to talk about Kamali Harris urged her followers to cover the rioters bail here in Minneapolis and I have a front row seat to what happened here in Minneapolis back in May 2020. Harris encouraged her supporters last summer to donate to the Minnesota freedom fund which provided bail money to the militant anarchist facing charges for setting fire to Minneapolis again 5 miles. The Minneapolis will never recover its burned to the ground.

Never recover. Never. And many of those small businesses were minority owned Chris Cuomo, who said who said that the protests were supposed to be peaceful, CNN's Cuomo showcases ignorance on the First Amendment when he dismissed the idea that militant protest sweeping the nation.

In the aftermath of the George Floyd deaths were illegal. Please show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful. Cuomo demanded MSNBC reporter described the fiery scene and that would have been in Minneapolis as mostly a simple protests, the Democratic national convention refuses to condemn the riots Democrats went through their entire online convention without condemning the epidemic of left-wing violence that engulfed the nation throughout much of 2020 and when to stop there, but you get the point. At one time. This seemed to be okay with the left wing suddenly based on the incident that happened January 6 in Washington DC now course, different story.

They are singing I have on the line from Virginia, Michelle Bachmann, who's with me for the hour. She was present in DC on January 6. Actually for six because she was there in a prayer capacity. Couple of days and had a front row seat to some things that were quite frankly pretty tough to watch. She said to me that being with the various participants in the Trump rally for the one day anyway was like a family reunion that these people were terribly abused and you said to me Michelle. This was a terrible thing to do to good people and then you said to me that some folks now trump supporters are being message to by friends and relatives than others, will you now renounce Donald Trump house said people are saying to trump supporters there believing that their identity is that of a terrace that is somebody who would commit violent. That is exactly what the left attempted to do this was planned in my opinion, I believe it will be proven that it was planned because the left one by trying to rebrand food trump supporters are all year this year like you spoke about Minneapolis with 5 miles. Businesses burned out. America watched and rejected the violent tactics of the left, and I believe they rejected those tactics at the ballot box to what the left couldn't take is the image that they had of being a bunch of thugs. So instead they wanted to paint the trump supporters as the fog. That's what is the lie president Trump didn't give a speech on January 6 whipping people love encouraging them to be a mob and commit violent that did not happen just like I believe it will be proved that those who are the agitators they acted and they use the same violent tactics that were used in cities that were burned down and agitated.

It was the same tactics you have never seen trump supporters use those tactics and I believe that trump supporters did not use those tactics at the events of the US Capitol in January 6.

I believe that that will be proven to be so, but what is lingering is a media narrative that this was Donald Trump that instigated this and this is Donald Trump. Supporters who followed this now people all across America and the world are wanting trump supporters to do in Mountain View prompts really like his cabinet members and resigned and walked away, Facebook and Twitter removed president Trump. They removed him off of Instagram.

He's been canceled by the media and by social media. Now people are being encouraged like a mob to come after trump supporters and saying denounced trump the whole thing is being whipped up into a frenzy like a mob but we as believers have to act on truth. We have to keep our heads about us and we have to act on truth. Nothing changed president Donald Trump was one of the greatest presidents that we have had in modern time when you look at the results of what he provided a brilliant economy protections for Israel. For believers, religious liberty protections. The regulatory reform in the United States is nothing more than legendary. Those are the facts. He had a remarkable presidency and that is why you see Nancy Pelosi and the left and the media calling for his impeachment and for removal under the 25th amendment, it will never happen. It's a PR move because they want to completely trash him.

They want to trash his legacy and they want to divide his supporters from him and they want to divide us from our family and friends to put us in an defense of posture to defend him as though were defending violence. We condemn the violent because I believe the violence never happened from trump supporters. It happened from the same agitators the burned down cities in America that the truth and that's what we have to stand on is that truth, and the sick thing is all of the concerns the people were worried about with the courts, not listening to us the politicians not listening to us.

We still haven't been listened to and so people are more frustrated than ever. And where do we go. It's very demoralizing.

Let me ask you this, and by the way you're listening to understanding the times radio with you just joined us to talk to Michelle Bachmann. She served Minnesota sixth district from 2007 to January 2015, and she's been doing some very interesting things in the meantime, we still need to tell folks what your current assignment is Michelle.

But before we do that I want to address the issue here of what lies ahead in your political expertise.

What lies ahead here under a Biden Harris administration. Part B of my question is what does a one party rule mean going forward and can there ever be a reliable election again here after some big questions.

One party rule means that there will unlikely be any checks and balance due is very little accountability on one party, that party is the Democrat party but it's not your grandparents Democrat party if the party of Elana Omar and it's a party of AOC.

It's a very different party at the party that represents more of socialistic bent to it and so I think what were going to see they've already indicated with papers that I think we will see persecution in the very near future.

I'm glad you said that we need to reference that and I want to encourage pastors to start taking this up. In particular, one pastor who was persecuted with Andrew Brunson who was held against his will in Turkey. He was released from Turkey because of the help of Pres. Donald Trump and he has been trying to warn the church in America about persecution. He believes persecution is coming to the church and we need to be prepared. And I think that that needs to be a focus. We will still serve God.

We will still trust God. We will still believe in God. Just because the election was lost does not mean that we should not believe in God or believe that somehow God has failed us because we prayed for a different election results all year and we didn't get it. And now, in fact, receiving one party rule times ahead may not be what we wanted, they may be very different from the America that we knew from before. But God doesn't change his protection for us is love and care for us.

Doesn't change, but you asked me the question what will we see, I said persecution. I also believe that were going to see an economy that won't work were going to see the left spend money like you have never money spent before but will see increased taxes and you'll see an economy that falls apart and that means fewer jobs. That means, in all likelihood runaway inflation very difficult times. I think that were going to see the push toward digital currency this year doing away with cash. I also think will be pushed into the vaccines and I think will be pushed into the digital passport for vaccine. We could be limited on our travel internationally, certainly, but perhaps even domestically.

These are all speculations I don't know them to be true, but I do know from what's been put out so far it looks like they will very clearly come after the church in terms of persecution, forcing the church to agree and embrace the LGBT agenda.

It'll be interesting to see which direction the church goes and how about our relations with Israel but I think that's also been very clear that this will be in all likelihood an anti-Israel administration and certainly that's where the vice president elect is coming from.

From the appointments that we've seen so far from the Biden administration. It has a very decided anti-Israel bent, let alone should be extremely troubling is the base on Scripture Genesis 12, three, etc. I couldn't agree with you more. The Obama Biden administration was the most anti-Israel in my lifetime and possibly in his real short history is is staggering with that administration did to Israel. I think those days possibly are going to return Michelle. I don't want time to get away before we ask folks to pray for you in your new assignment because all of a sudden I got a call from you saying you're headed to Virginia Beach Virginia starting January 1 and Regent University.

Take five minutes until my audience what you're going to be doing and how they can pray for you.

Yes, a real difference and it came out of nowhere, but I think that this is clearly a direction that came from the Lord's hand, and I am now the new Dean of the Robertson school of Government at Regent University.

It is a graduate school program to train the next generation of young men and young women in Masters level graduate degrees to serve in government we come from a very clear biblical worldview perspective, I believe that we are the premier graduate school of government in the United States and we want to prepare people for service in government, whether it's serving internationally at the federal level at the state level at the local level, helping people with campaigns, learning how to campaign, but also learning the essence of government.

What American government has been traditionally, what's the biblical perspective on governance. What is the truth of governance.

What is the counterfeit of governance and I think there is no other time than now to prepare a new generation to take up the torch of what the truth is for biblical governance and that's where I am I'm leading the Robertson school of government and the Dean at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and for those who would be interested in the school. Most of our course offerings are online, so please contact the Robertson school of government in Virginia Beach Virginia for Regent University. We would love to talk to you more about enrolling in our graduate school. We have many different degrees and would like to talk to you about that and help you with the biblical worldview of government speaking in schools and education under Skinner read three paragraphs.

This is a memo that was sent to teachers in Minnesota. This is immediately after the January 6 situation that happened in Washington DC might've been that night are certainly the next day. This is what was sent to the teachers in Minnesota disc and read a couple of paragraphs.

It's very long. I'm not reading at all and just reading some highlights. It says tomorrow is not simply another day at school tomorrow is a day when kids need the opportunity to ask questions to write about their anger to ask why all these white people attacking the capital were not shot as they would have been if they had been black.

Again, this is sent to teachers in Minnesota right after the January 6 incident in Washington goes on tomorrow is not simply another day at school. Teachers will walk in the classrooms or will turn on their resume screens and try to hold in check their own fury, disappointment and confusion as they help 14-year-olds try to process what happened, they will have heard that VP Pentz said that our capital was under unprecedented attack, while the president announced that the election was stolen goes on to say.

Older students should listen to trumps video statement and then listen to Biden's video statement and discuss which one columns in the nation in which one incites a nation goes on to say I want our white students to wonder what would have happened if those rioters had been black. Again, this is a memo sent to all teachers in Minnesota. Younger students will wonder what will this happen here or why did they do this I would want them to talk about how we should share our differences, I want them to know that there are far more good people than bad people and that far more people share their disappointments with words rather than violence, and then it concludes tomorrow is not simply another day at school. Don't expect it to be. Don't expect that you will know the answers to all their questions because kids always ask the hardest questions and it wraps up here. I would tell them over and over that good people have not disappeared were still here. We are listening to them our nation's kids because they will remember this day and they are the ones that can make sure this happens never again tomorrow is not simply another day of school you have had far too many of these days dear teachers, somewhere in you. You always find the heart, the courage, the compassion to set aside that lesson on sequencing or multiplying for the explanation of a cell and instead embrace their questions, their concerns and their fears, and you give them what we all need the most hope so, Michelle, that was given to Minnesota teachers. I believe on January 7 that says to me, that's another piece that points toward a crow. Yes exquisite hostile takeover of government at the planned takeover of government.

I watched the speech in real time that Joe Biden gave it eloquent very well lit, very well done.

Imagine the speech was like within five minutes of the whole amendment happening quote from Abraham Lincoln. I me is unbelievable how elegant this whole speech was done. You don't have a 25-year-old speechwriter pulling something like that together in five minutes and then rushing Joe Biden into a studio to put this thing out clearly.

By utilizing this to every teacher in Minnesota my guesses.

This went out to the Department of Education. I would be surprised of. Went out to all 50 states and the blue teachers in other states were getting the same level of propaganda because what is it the teachers are being asked to do reaffirm the eye entity theft of that 74 million people in America who are legitimately asking hey with my vote stolen.

I want to know.

Would you audit if my vote was stolen. I don't believe this is a true election result will again that was not only stopped but it's I entity theft of the people who supported Donald Trump who I believe are the majority of voters in the United States and our tax dollars in our public schools are being used to brainwash the minds of our children and I would say this just like communist China regularly brainwash as the minds of children to go along with what the regime wants. This is a form of brainwashing of little children with propaganda to rebrand re-I densify who the good guys are in there thing the good guys are team Biden in the guise are anyone who goes along with Donald Trump and again maligning Republicans, conservatives, Christians as violent individuals. When that did not happen. That's what I wanted to on here as quickly as I could make that happen because she's had a front row seat to a lot of this and you told me you interacted with a lot of the congresspeople there in Washington on January 6. What did they tell you what they looking towards this new year.

I'm speaking now, politically granted, we sort of have a one-party rule and that in itself is very discouraging, but you talk to a lot of your former colleagues are they looking forward to this new year, optimistically, pessimistically, of the encourage of the discouraged tell me what some of them are thinking are not a very pessimistic they know completely what's going to him.

One thing about Democrats is when they get power they use is and they're going to use this power to consolidate their power and in my estimation will never have a free election. Again, that's only concerned this was a fraudulent election.

I believe it was a stolen election and I believe what they will do is consolidate their power. They may institute not just mail and voting nationally. They may institute Internet voting which, when you even more life a fraud.

Who knows, but he certainly won't investigate Dominion voting machines.

The software that was used, or how votes were manipulate. None of that will happen. I think what they'll do is they will grease the skids for the future so that all future elections will just deliver preplanned results and I think it will be very demoralizing for people involved in elections in the future, but I think really what were looking at very quickly will be a global governance.

Yes, this is really more transitory is and I don't mean this disrespectful.

I think they will be an irrelevant administration because I think we're just going to slide right into Adolfo style him global governance and I think it that's what 2021 will be done programming. The last two weeks on then on the world economic forum, the great reset substance to programs are on my website. All of trees olive trees if you didn't hear them live. Please go check them out.

Michelle is dead right on.

That's what's coming is the world economic forum, the great reset globalism the one world government. The one world currency, although that is hiding in plain sight. It's a roaring freight train on its way.

Shall we have about five minutes left. Let's try to be. How do I said let's try to end on an encouraging note in his sweet talk privately on the phone you reminded me that Daniel worked in a hostile government and he made it work we have to do the same in my listeners need to have a word of encouragement right now we do. It's really the most exciting time to be alive.

It is at this many times the days the prophets longer live and what we need to do is keep our heads about us and speak truth.

It is extremely easy right now to get caught up in delusion and deception, and that's why turning off the mainstream media is imperative not even just a well wish it's imperative that we do that and we need to find outlets that will tell us the truth. We need to understand the word more than we ever did were looking at Ezekiel 38 days that were coming out into now because very quickly. We could see how the Scripture said that all nations turn against Israel that not one nation will help Israel that's never happened in our lifetime. It very well could be true even in this year that America would be in that lot.

We don't know how some of these events will be at hand, but I would encourage pastors preach the word especially what the word says about these days. It's remiss not to your congregation needs to know what's happening not for the purpose of fear. We need to be well-informed biblically so we know how to be in prayer God rescue Scott St. and so we need to know how to be in prayer. I'm not discouraged today. I'm not disappointed. Today I was here in the midst of all that I gave my year to prayer and fasting, but I'm not discouraged because I believe more than ever we did exactly what we were supposed to do and God is sovereign and he is working in his plan. So we continue to keep our eyes on the true North we speak truth to each other.

We speak truth to others and we follow the word of God as we watch him bark this out and we thank him that we get to walk in these days. In truth, so speak the truth, walk in the truth and look up because his salvation draws nigh is not a time to be discouraged. It really is that it is a time to say thank you father, may you find me faithful and that's what we need to do and then recognize that as we may be moving toward persecution. We need to learn how to live in these times, because God will use this in this hour. That is a blessing very well said Michelle referred there to Ezekiel 38 very very interesting passage she referred to Ezekiel 38, 39, the Gog Magog invasion of Israel and the thing that's intriguing about that verse is that Israel is all alone, no nation, America is not there to step in.

Donald Trump, a great friend of Israel not there to step in and protect Israel from this Gog Magog invasion. In other words, there needs to be in administration in the United States. That's not going to be friendly to Israel. We have that administration entering as I speak. The Gog Magog invasion again intriguing passage of Scripture we talk about it here sometimes understanding the times radio read up on it.

Ezekiel 3039 Michelle, thank you again for all you do.

Thank you for coming on error and this was thrown together so hastily because things happen so quickly. You are in Washington you're traveling back to Virginia and I'm so glad you made time for the programming today.

My audience always tells me the emails always say our favorite guest of yours is Michelle. So thank you for joining us. Michelle, thank you Jan thank you for being so faithful to encourage and speak the truth to the body of Christ. Magog is saying that I've said many times God is shaking us up trying to wake this up so that we will look up folks. Believers are aliens in a foreign land. This world is not our home. I mean, that's not just an old hymn that was sung in the 1970s, it's truth. God wants us to keep our thoughts on things above, things of this world to strike us down, but we pray for all those in authority that you would give them your wisdom and discernment as the lead Lord and we ask that you would point strong faithful men and women to serve this nation. And again we pray that for your great healing on our land, shine your face on us. Dear God, we need you now more than ever before.

Our times are in your hands. I want to thank you for listening will talk to you next week by writing us through our websites.
