Tired of months protesting. How about 50 days of blessing lesson when Benjamin Franklin was asked regarding the government that they were going to give it to the American people. It was asked of him. Mr. Franklin what kind of government have you produced for us.
Benjamin Franklin said public if you can keep it and that's the challenge today. Are we able to keep it. Are we willing to keep welcome to understanding the times radio with Jim Markel radio for the remnant brought you by all three ministries. Today we hear part two of our two-part series with Michele Bachmann, candidate for President of the United States in 2012 coronavirus racial unrest and more Torn America and other parts of the world apart. Only 20 is there an answer to the chaos discussed that this hour. Stream is proven beyond any doubt that the free enterprise that freedom produces provides more for anyone willing to work any other system so why would the left still be pushing their socialist agenda on us. I mean it's really just microwave communism. There's only two possibilities there either ignorant or the from my investigation last two years has caused America's drastic decline. Sorry to say, the left, they left too much evidence their agenda books, articles, speech no America has an enemy that is getting very close to accomplishing its plan of destroying the greatest country in all world history.
Welcome back to the program. This is part two two-part series with my special guest Michelle Bachmann represented Minnesota sixth district starting in 2007 step down a few years ago now, but did run for president of the United States in 2012, we spent all last week looking at a number of issues with election related some of the efforts to swing the election with ballot harvesting and other fraudulent efforts on the part of the left who seemed desperate to as Curtis Bowers said in that little clip I displayed here to affect and even destroy the greatest country on earth as we also said last weekend.
My understanding the times programming obviously global government according to Revelation 13 is on the horizon. The church is absent when that happens. So we are so late in the game last week's program was troubling to say the least.
Some of the efforts on the part of the left to steal an election certainly have never been more active than they are. As we speak and we gave some ways in which you can counter that. So what I wanted to do for this week's programming with Michele is look at things from a more optimistic perspective.
Michelle was very active in some of the prayer and repentance activities that went on in Washington.
This would've been the very end of September. Some of you watch them on lifestream and my understanding is around the world. There were literally millions of people watching these activities because they weren't just for America. They were prayer and repentance efforts that were reaching around the world as a matter of fact, Michelle said to me that even Jews in Israel said we want to have an activity like this.
In fact, Christians in America made the Jews jealous. Well, that is our site and folks that happened back in late September Michelle welcome back to the program.
Jan thank you so much with sadistic great.
I count it a privilege to be here with you both. Thank you. Not quite sure where to start Curtis out of my program that if the left gets into office here in January 2021 they will accomplish more in a matter of weeks.
It's taken them 100 years to do so far they'll do in a matter of weeks. As far as the destructive element goes your thoughts on that.
Why agree with Curtis completely and you and I had had a conversation off-line when I said that I believe it or not kidding around anymore. They're not just gonna try and be incremental. I think that's why there is this all out effort on process on the left side to make sure that they win all of these crucial offices because I believe within 100 days of finally winning the presidency, they will put in every aspect of what they need to have in order to have the United States be transformed.
What was that Barack Obama wanted to achieve. I think they'll achieve it within the first 100 daily and I think even up to and including rewriting the Constitution so that we become in effect, a Marxist country. It won't be called that they'll come up with a different name, but it'll be Marxism and it'll be a denial of our freedom. This is where these people want to go.
They really don't even blush anymore. They're out in the open and this is something your listener should understand Jan four years ago there was an attempted coup by Barack Obama and CIA director Brandon and DIA director Klapper and different ones behind the scenes, including the FBI director James call me. We know this now. It's already been in various committee hearings that they attempted to wiretap using the federal government. This is prohibited in law. The embedded people in present trumps campaign for the purpose of defeating him during the election, they failed. So they tried to defeat him in between the election and the inauguration they failed and they continue to try to defeat him after the inauguration. By having these phony by the warrant so they were continuing the spa I am the president.
While he was president. If they want to come up with something so they could impeach him. This is an actual by definition coup that was behind closed doors. What were seeing now four years later.
This is a behind closed doors in the room out in the open.
They're trying to steal the election from the American people. They hate democracy they want to deny us our true vote by faking a bunch of votes so that they can deny Donald Trump. A second term in the White House because they're convinced this is their time. So once the left gets the power, they're not gonna kid around anymore they're going to waste their time on elections anymore. They're gonna make sure that they stay in power for the foreseeable future happens in government after government, but it's totalitarian governments where that happens not in government like ours, they don't like our form of government they wanted to hold onto power. They want to hold onto the money they want to control our lives.
And there's serious about at this time and I think if they win the first 100 days in office. They'll rewrite all the rules of the game and we will never have a free and fair election again unless the Lord intervene unless the Lord intervenes.
Just looking at pre-election throughout 2020 right through September here and even October.
Obviously, we've got a lot of God haters in America, and certain political party has no fun. This of that we had Christians, including pastors here in the last six, seven, eight months they been arrested or they been threatened with arrest. This pinch is shocking to see the attack on the church and this is before our election. This is been with conservatives in office yet it is overt because there is been an effort all year to keep churches close keep Christians home and to prevent us from having a kind of communication and fellowship that we normally have.
So even as coronavirus has dropped dramatically in our state. It's drop like about 50%. The number of deaths and hospitalizations, which is a great thing but yet that hasn't moved the heart of our governor.
He wants to keep us lock down and I think we all clean and know this, that they're waiting until after the election to open up America again. They want us lock down because coronavirus is been the pretext for the cheap by mail voting for stealing this election. That's why they're keeping us lock down. They don't want Christians to be able to talk to each other. They don't want voter guides and churches so that the parishioners have an idea of where the candidates stand on the issues. If you notice they aren't even talking about issues on the side of the left. They want to keep everything hidden so they can steal this election and then off to go with a transformed America were we will never get an ability to be able to vote again. It's happening country after country. This is not new. That's rainy take over our country straight, but we need to realize this really is the existential election which means will we exist in the form that we know what America will still be here will still be alive and breathing, but we will have lost our ability to govern ourselves because they're in the process of stealing it right now you need to hear part one of this two-part series, you can do that by going to the programming on my website. All of trees use.org olive tree views out of work and just go to radio you can get email@example.com you can find it on his channel, but my hunch is YouTube is not gonna leave our video version of it up. I don't know that, but big tech is pretty much committed to getting a leftist in office, you do need to hear part one because there we try to unpack just how does voter fraud manifest and we talked about that in detail. Clearly it's going on in your hometown and if you're in a swing state that guarantee you it's going on and how do you recognize and how do you fight back. We talked about all those things. In part one, we wanted to make, part two of our programming a whole lot more positive and upbeat but having said that, I'm going to play just a little over a minute clip and I want you to hear how the left is talking about our president.
Then I want you to hear how Christians are behaving and if you don't see the incredible contrast here of good versus evil, well then I give up and you can vote for whoever you will have food for this is how the left is talking about our president and then I want to come back and Michelle and I a promise for you to be far more uplifting for the balance of the program by just telling you why there aren't uprisings of the country. Maybe they will be. People need to start taking to the streets. This is another needs to be on the rest of the streets for as long as there's arrested our lives stay show me where it says the protests were supposed to be polite and peaceful about your dad's immigration low SSN station around here is what radicalized faces, even if you live like a Mexican hero. People must so smooth you're so have to go put a bullet and go where no white or is under investigation by the Secret Service. After sitting president is assassinated about processes evil. If you intend to vote for that. You got a problem.
It's all I can say you want to address that at all. Michelle was seeing this ugliness everywhere every ring.
It directed toward the president but were also just seeing it in our daily lives. People can attest that now were seeing graffiti written on our buildings. It's illegal to do that but were saying ugliness in our cities whether it's statues that have been tumbled in Minnesota are Christopher Columbus statue with him hold down our Democrat governor did nothing. He's not going to put it back up. Statues were pulled down, spray-painted, defaced, and all of the carnage is still there but with filthiness is still left intact. I was here in DC and there is a statue that I ran into in filthy language with written on it. I thought yesterday afternoon.
It was cleaned off but you can still make out the filthy language. It will forever deface that incredible statute. I have never in my life heard the filthy language in 2020 that I have heard and little children are hearing this, and now this is coming out of men's mouth women's mouth and it coarsening. Our culture is bringing us down low to a base level and this is all a part of what this crazed frenzy because for whatever reason they can't even articulate. They hate Donald Trump. It's completely irrational and on every possible at the same time we get 60 days of blessing going on.
When have you talk a little bit about that we had soaks gather in Washington DC. This would've been the end of September. Actually you guys met when I was supposed to be holding my conference September 26 which we had to cancel because conditions in Minnesota are just not suitable to try to have a gathering of several thousand people just wouldn't have happened couple events several as matter fact went on end of September and I want you to talk a little bit about them. I want you to talk about what 50 days of blessing would be all about the return which you are a part of Franklin Graham's activity you were a part of. Now folks I said this is going to be more positive and optimistic because these things were a blessing millions for accessing these activities online. Michelle talk to us a little bit about your activity was Franklin Graham because you are able to pray over VP Pentz. I was neither historic events that took place at the end of September and you're right, Janet was the very day that you were supposed to have your conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota that was canceled but what was put into place and this wasn't years in the making. This actually came up fairly quickly. Franklin Graham was moved by what he saw on happening in America. Streets and he told me personally. He said this is very simple. He and I were standing in line waiting to go in and hear the president's acceptance speech on the South lawn.
The last night of the Republican convention. We stood in line together for an hour and he told me that he was having the March on Washington 2020. He said it's very simple. All we're doing is calling believers to come to Washington DC and pray for her to meet at the Lincoln Memorial will make a couple of stops, but were just walking the ground reclaiming background for God and were to confess our sins were to pray were to cry out to a holy God. It's all we can do. There was no big stage.
There was no fancy microphone. There wasn't anything it was just meeting and praying till the night before we met.
We had a dinner together with a smaller group and he just laid it out that this is what were doing were doing this because the country is in need. This is what God calls believers to do to pray to cry out to him and that's what we need to do so he put out the call. He told me that 50,000 people had signed up so they didn't know what to expect. The night before that we have no idea if anybody will, nobody will come. So he said were not tied to numbers.
A lot of times the reporters will say all your event with the flop. If you didn't have your number. She said if 100 people show up and be a success because we are here to pray till the next day we arrived there were well more than 50,000, there were at least 70,000 if not 100,000 out on the mall and we went to the Lincoln Memorial. A complete surprise occurred. This was not intended.
I went up to the platform area and I was asked to offer a two minute prayer, and it would be at the very first stop which was the Lincoln Memorial and I just had a T-shirt on and a pair jeans is a beautiful 82° day so I was up there and all of a sudden Secret Service came up to the platform and pushed us back and said you have to get up on the steps so we stood on the steps and they created kind of a perimeter and all of a sudden this man with white hair was starting to bounce up the steps and it was vice president pants and his wife. Now the reason why tell you this is because this takes remarkable courage. There was no vetting of the people. There is no cordoning off of anyone as volatile as America is today.
You just heard these calls to take the president's life during the bullet vice president pants and his wife asked Franklin Graham if they could be a part of this effort. They are strong admitted born-again believers in Jesus Christ. They want the prayer they believe in prayer for our country so they came up was a big formal thing.
Franklin Graham was there and he asked vice president pants if you'd like to say a few words he did and he asked the vice president would you be willing to receive prayer. He said of course I would appreciate that. And then Franklin Graham asked myself if I would pray over the vice president.
I went to the podium, I prayed over the vice president. He then asked Bishop Harry Jackson who was an African-American pastor if he would also pray over the vice president.
He did and then the vice president laughed and then we began the March to think of the courage it took for the vice president and his wife to go into a crowd that hasn't been vetted on a platform.
There were thousands of people above us on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial is some not had a gun in his pants he could a shot that vice president in that form, but the vice president trust in the name of the Lord our God and everyone that was there is crying out desperately for our country that our country would be turned toward God. The vice president did that knowing the risk that he could be taking.
He and his wife then laughed and then we began the march and it was simple. There is no music, there was nothing, we just started praying, and Franklin Graham said every step we take, let it be a prayer, pray and ask the Lord to give us the ground were walking on that the Lord would take back America for himself and for his praise and his glory. And that's what the people did. They started walking he said it will take maybe two hours or so. You could hear Scripture. You could hear people singing. You could hear people praying they were repenting of their sins, confessing their sins. They were crying out to God.
I had a man come up to me and say do you know Jesus. He wanted to share Jesus with me and their Street preachers all over the mall seeking anyone they could find to share Jesus with them. There were people there who had little portable microphone explaining that we are crying out for God's justice in saying that we repent of the sin of abortion in America in the 63 million innocent lives that were lost. This went on for hours. It was the most beautiful peaceful side I ever saw. And I had a driver and the driver said that since coronavirus started. This is the first big gathering of people in Washington since it started and it was a gathering of God's people coming together to praise him and repent of our sins.
It was absolutely beautiful to see that and the driver said to me, this is kind of a different breed of people. If you know what I mean by said they certainly are at that different breed of your listening to understanding the times radio, this is Jim Markel I'm sure you recognize the voice hear Michelle Bachmann. She was with me last weekend for part one of this two-part series and last weekend we talked about some very sobering things sobering this weekend as well.
A little more upbeat but last weekend very sobering that how the left is indeed trying to not only steal the election but steal the country and turn it into a socialists even Marxist enclave. We know it's heading the global government. We don't know when we just know the Bible book of Revelation outlines global government going to happen at some point in time. A lot of the movers and shakers in Washington around the world, particularly Europe are one world there is an odd given endless messages here on understanding the times radio trying to explain just what global government is all about what it would look like, how terribly ugly it is ultimately the antichrist will rule the one world system. Obviously that's in the future.
The church is absent when that is going to take place. So what we tried to do this week on understanding the times radio is present what God is doing.
Obviously Satan is very busy and that was outlined in last week's program is much as you can in less than an hour. Satan is very busy trying to stir up and wreck the greatest country ever since certainly modern history. What I'm trying to do this. Hours talk about what God is doing to push back and what believers are doing the pushback at the same time as Franklin Graham's event was going on. The event called the return was happening and that was sent same location same time so you can imagine, as the enemy is trying to create complete chaos and has for months now.
It's not just America that's the thing, Michelle. What happened was when the violence broke out starting in your hometown and in mind I'm in Minneapolis you're actually in St. Paul.
But when the violence began May 25 and then spread throughout the country. Frankly, it spread to Europe. It spread to Australia. It was like Satan was unleashed but it started on Lake St. in Minneapolis. It did.
That was the spark that lit all of the violence around the world.
It was more than just an natural event. It's lawlessness is biblical lawlessness, but again that is exponential in the tribulation. This is just a run up yet. This is a foreshadowing of it and we knew that there was a demonic element in all this. It was like the God of hellfire was speaking out. That's why when you see something on that level seems to have a spiritual component. You know that this is a war in the heaven. That's right, and that there's another spiritual component and that the God component. He doesn't abandon us.
He did not abandon America. This was a demonic spirit that was unleashed upon the earth of lawlessness and murder and rebellion in arson and ultimately if you look even at this symbol that's being used by black lives matter and the anarchist. It is the raised clenched right that takes this exactly back to Satan in the garden, the rebellious one, even before the garden. When Satan was in heaven and he read held against God because he wanted to elevate himself above God, and that is still happening to this day. The raised clenched fist. This is not a positive symbol.
This is a satanic symbol of rebirth failure and we recognize what it is and so the positive is that the church is waking up.
We are looking at the church now returning to the things of God. All I can tell you is I wouldn't have been anywhere you health that weekend of September 26 because your conference intended to point believers toward the way of God that didn't happen, but that weekend instead. It was really in God's time clock. A pivotal historic weekend because it's the weekend went believers from all 50 states and even including places from around the earth came here to DC for one purpose only very simple purpose to confess our sins, repent, and to say Lord it's out-of-control. This is beyond me. We need you to repair this when I get back I want to talk a little bit more about the fascinating story. It happened in Minnesota back in 1877. Are there some lessons for all across the land, I think so.
It's an amazing story. I was not aware of that and then have Michelle share that story. I'm going to read short proclamation by the then governor of Minnesota Gov., Pillsbury, and I think you're going to be amazed when you hear Michelle and me and we don't have the kindest things to say about our home state of Canada encouraging people to get out of town as fast as you can go to a safer location but God really intervened in the state back in 1877 will tell you about that will talk about some other things as well encourage you to hear part one of our programming from last weekend where we talked about the scheme and is a scheme to steal the election on November 3 and beyond that to delay a decision until well into January and February in the courts. So it's very serious things going on behind the scenes of a dark nature and just what can you do to get in the way of all that, find that programming at my website under radio olive tree views.org olive tree views.org.

We often present hard news and information signs, radio this week to let you know people are swimming weeks ahead of our 2020 election serious prayer and fasting is more with Michelle Bachmann and Jim Mark so you understanding the time. Today this Washington firm are to continue a great American tradition since the founding of our nation. The American people and our leaders have gone to prayer in challenging times, George Washington prayed for the leaders and the people of our states what he called an earnest prayer that God would hold them in our states in his holy protection Abraham Lincoln before his monument we stand today so during his time in the White House. I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go, and Pres. Donald Trump is observed many times that America is a nation of believers will come back. I'm wrapping up a two week series with Michelle Bachmann. She represented Minnesota sixth district starting 2007, she stepped down January 2015.
Were talking about some of the more uplifting things that Took Pl. in Washington. Here is we have a run up to the election November 3, campaign 2020 has been very intense, and it has been very ugly. That's not the whole story. There's actually a bright side to things that believers are stepping up to do. There's 50 days of blessing will try to talk a little bit about that is an opportunity in Lafayette Park, across from the White House. You can participate in that. If you like wheat spent the first part of part two of our programming talking about the event, Franklin Graham put on that Michelle was a part of that was back on September 26. The return took place same day in Washington DC. Michelle was a part of that mold sale a bit more about that. What else can you do well, you can be a part of family research Council's praise vote stand to give you some websites if you'd like to see the event by Franklin Graham. Just visit the Billy Graham website BG E a.org you can visit the website of the return that would be the return.org the return.org to see that event, which was more like a day and 1/2 family research Council, Michelle, what is the website a family research Council, pray, vote, stand.or and they actually have a show that they do every Wednesday night, talking about the election. You can go to pray, vote, stand out or it'll tell you what time in the area that you live in that it will come on if the live show.
You get it on your computer your iPad or on your phone but then the other thing is you can pray we have live nationwide prayer time every Thursday at noon Eastern time. I lead that prayer call and people can join us. That's free and if you go to pray, vote, stand.or you can sign up and every Thursday between now and the election were praying together for our nation. We take a different topic that we pray through and we'd love to have you part of that as well and you are a part of the 60 days of blessing as well because you are out there in Lafayette Park at least certain days. You are yes and the purpose of this is to have prayer for our nation through the election and it's 24 seven prayer therapy, believers standing in what's called Lafayette Park. It's on the side of the White House that has the big fountain and we are in, their people are worshiping their standing there to pray for our country.
Pray for our president so this is live ongoing prayer between now and the election. Everyone is invited to come and join us if you have a choir bring your choir you want to common thing you can thing, honey and were allowed to do this is unprecedented. We have a permit to be there through the election 24 hours a day to pray and to sing and to praise. I'm told that the White House knows were there and they're thrilled to know that believers are praying for them for the White House for our country and were doing this every day. Yesterday I was out there, probably seven hours praying in their believers from all over affect a believer from Minneapolis came at another one came in from North Dakota.
They've been coming in from all over the country just to pray many people can't come in. Pray for as much as you possibly can.
And this is something that you can do at home on your own time, but also if you don't want to do that. I would encourage you to get together with the prayer group in your church pray with them. Also prayer walk. That's what we did in Washington DC on the 26th. We pray walked in all of our most famous buildings here to take back our country. You can do the same thing in your town. You can pray on the streets of your city pray in front of your church. Take your church back pray in front of your home.
Pray in front of areas that have been desecrated asked the Lord to do this miracle in your city. He is the God of restoration and so it just begins with each one of us. You are at the return that activity was viewed by millions. That's the one I referred to where she was sought in Israel and said they want to have a day of prayer and repentance. American Christians actually made the Jews jealous will that is our assignment. Folks, that's what Romans 910 11 is all about, and Pres. Trump sent a proclamation to folks at the return and on. A portion of it anyway because I was very moved by and he says on this inaugural National Day of prayer and return the first lady and I joined millions of Christians United States and around the world and prayer as we turn our hearts to our Lord and Savior.
He says our great nation was founded by men and women of deep and abiding faith is faith that it stood the test of time for hundred years ago.
Early American settlers trusted their lives to his providence and brave voyage to a new world from the pilgrims who sought his protection aboard the Mayflower to the countless believers who today bow their heads to ask for his guidance during these unprecedented times are country continues to turn to the Lord following in our ancestors footsteps. We continue the firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence that provides us enduring strength and reassurance in our times of need and then he kinda concludes the trials and tribulations the American people have faced over the past several months have been great.
Yet, as we have seen time and time again the resolve of our citizenry fortified by her faith in God has guided us through these hardships and helped us to unite us as one nation under God. As we continue to combat the challenges ahead of us. We must remember the sage words of Pres. George Washington.
Propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained as a country and a people. Let us renew our commitment to these abiding in timeless principles and he concludes today. I am pleased to join my voice to yours and thanking God for blessing this nation with great power and responsibility with reference humility and thanksgiving. We pay for his continued guidance and protection. He did participate Michelle in the incredible day and it was all day was actually day and 1/2 if you count some Friday night activity. We had literally in Washington raising their hands in prayer. Michelle Bachmann couple hundred thousand likely in back here late September we had tens of millions watching online so many that again, even in Israel.
They said we wanted day of prayer and repentance. You were there, so keep talking to us about the blessing that this was. There were active text messages coming in from people from Israel while they were watching it. They were absolutely ecstatic because by that time they were going into Yom Kippur the holiest day of the year. The pattern that we were following, there is the blowing of the shofar and the releasing of blessing. This was very different than maybe a lot of conferences that people go to for this is simple, it was just praying and confessing sin and turning back to God and then people who went up on stage at the return there was no self-promotion. There is no like introducing myself for introductions ahead of time. There is nothing like that. We had exact amount of seconds we weren't even allowed to go one second overlook is that so many people and it was just person after person either giving of calling to repentance or prayer.
In my case it was prayer so it was going out and again no attention to the speaker. You couldn't tell a joke it was a solemn assembly that happened all day and Friday night I talked to one of the organizers I saw him at the hotel on Sunday night after the event was over. He showed me his phone because they said did people from Minnesota to an end and he showed me Minnesota. There are all sorts people and churches who did there were millions of people who tuned in across the world on Friday night and there were millions who tuned in on Saturday. This was absolutely thrilling because again the focus wasn't just America right it was globally out to the world.
We need to repent of our sins we need to return to God and that was the whole focus. That's why it was beautiful wasn't about a person. It wasn't about anybody's book. It was about returning to the Lord and that was very clear and Kevin told me that some people want to promote their book a project you're working on and he said no you can't. People who were insisting he said well I'm sorry that you won't be joining us because they were very clear.
This could be about no man could only be about God. That's why people want to see the return for themselves they could go to the return.org and watch the whole thing or go to BGE a.organ watch Franklin Graham's prayer March the next day on Sunday at Museum of the Bible just before Yom Kippur the holiest day of the year in the Jewish calendar. There is an all-day seminar for Christians at the Museum of the Bible on various issues dealing with the election it was really just getting the message out of repentance and of turning back to God. I teased the first part of the program here that we were going to relate a story that happened in this is how we going down our two-part series of program those nationalism was international. Actually, we've been focusing little bit on what happens in the heartland here, something happened back in 1877 that Michelle would like to talk about it some very unusual story.
It begins kinda bleak and it ends rather miraculously and I think in light of what a struggle are times are right now.
I think to be a blessing for you to hear the story that what happened in Minnesota back in 1877 also has to do with our governor make them talk about a difference in governors between then and now. They are, but this was a governor Pillsbury back in 1877 what happened. Michelle you take over consists story. I was not aware of the story that was related to me by George and Barbara Anderson of Minnesota.
I'd never heard of myself either, but they told me to start with actually printed the Minneapolis Star Tribune newspaper in the early 1990s, and it talked about how in Minnesota in the 1850s 1860s 1870s there was a plague of grasshoppers and this happened in different places in the United States refer to this in the Bible and happening across the world, but there is a plague the grasshoppers would come in some cases the grasshoppers would eat every green thing, they'd eat the bark off the trees 83 molding. In fact, even a pair of cowboy boots is eight everything in Minnesota so the scourge continued. The eggs were laid again in 1876 and they knew that it was coming up again in spring. In April 1877 and they saw that some of these eggs were starting to hatch again and they saw that it could be so devastating that once again they would lose all of their work for the entire year when the crops began to come up. The people Minnesota didn't know what to do and they had talked to their clergy and clergy and talk to the governor, John S. Pillsbury, the John S. Pillsbury made a courageous decision and he decided that he would accept looking like he was foolish and he issued a proclamation on April 9. He said we will have a day of prayer, fasting and humiliation before Almighty God on April 26 and they did it was an amazing proclamation that he wrote he said I invite the people on this day that set apart to withdraw from ordinary pursuits and in our homes and places of worship with contrite heart this each the mercy of God the sins of the past and his blessing upon the worthier aims of the future in the shadow of the locust plague his impending renewal threatens desolation of the land does humbly invoke for the efforts we make in our defense. The guidance of that hand, which alone is adequate to stay the pestilence that walk in the darkness and the destruction that waste is at noon day. Let us pray for deliverance from an affliction that robs the earth over bounty in behalf of the sufferers. Let us plead for comfort for the sorrowful healing for the sick faith and love for all who are heavily laden. Let us, therefore, endeavor to deserve a new prosperity by a new realization of the opportunity vouchsafed us in a new consecration to those things which make for the well-being of man and the glory of God sign governor Pillsbury in Minnesota so he set aside Thursday, April 26, 1877 that day came and the businesses in Minnesota shut down. The churches were open.
People stayed home and prayed. They went to church and prayed, but all business ceased in Minnesota that day and then the nation watched they'd heard about this to see what would happen. The very next day on April 27, 1877, the day started with a very bright sun.
It wasn't unseasonably warm weather that April day in Minnesota.
The temperatures became so high in the ground so warm that that day the grasshopper eggs started to hatch in fact even start a swarm to the top of the soil and they worried that infected even be a worse grasshopper plague than any they'd ever seen. Because the numbers look like they were stronger when the larvae came up that Minnesota people didn't develop hope. They had prayed something absolutely amazing happened as quickly as that unseasonably warm weather came in just as quickly.
It was replaced with an ice storm of great magnitude. The temperatures drop so low were the day before.
They had been extremely high so that the eggs in the ground that were in the process of hatching were frozen to kill the insects inside, and in fact, even the larvae on the ground were frozen they were drowned and they were crushed.
A lot of people didn't believe that this happened but it happened. In fact, this is called the Rocky mountain locust. It became extinct.
After this, and it went all across America.
Look what God had done. Not only did they not have a plague of locusts in Minnesota that year. They never had another one again they'd experienced them for 30 years before losing all of their crops and after that they never had another one again because the people in the state of Minnesota cried out to God, and that's why I believe when people of faith came to Washington DC and turn fully to God on September 26 I think something happened in our country and I think it is for all of us to continue to do the same as the year progresses.
We shouldn't be discouraged by any of this cheating and fraud, and even the plague that in our midst. We can rightly after we confess our sins and repent and turn to God, then we can stand on the ground of second Chronicles 714 and say Lord we have to turn from our wicked ways. Now will you heal our land and we can boldly ask him to do that and so I would say today let us boldly ask God to remove the plague of coronavirus from our land and heal us and remove the plague of coronavirus from Israel and heal Israel and bring our earth back into order and peace under his authority. Your listing to understanding the times radio Jim Markel your hearing familiar voice here of Michelle Bachmann leaf covered a lot of territory in two weeks. Part one again find it on my website.
All of trees use.org that's probably the simplest place to find that you find in audio and video on our website under radio olive trees use.org part two here. We've tried to take a upbeat position because some good things are going on. It goes beyond just sharing the efforts to bring down our country and bring down our president. Let me just ask you a real practical question Michelle because as we speak.
The situation with the new Supreme Court nominee is going to be justice Amy Kony Barrett give me your thoughts on the new Supreme Court nominee and the fact that the court is going to be noticeably stacked towards a more conservative bent. This is an answer to people's prayers. They prayed for years that we would see on and to Roe versus Wade and Amy Kony Barrett is a brilliant choice on the part of the president. I think of the three so far that he is nominated, I would put her first.
Her judicial temperament and how she has ruled is more in line with the founding fathers and someone who is called at textual lines.
In other words, she believes the written word of the Constitution should be followed that it is not for her to make law. Her position is to interpret the law as the founders decreed. She is very much in line with the Supreme Court just as she clerked for Antonin Scalia.
She will be the best pick on the Supreme Court without a shadow of a doubt, she is an individual that I know who part of his job is to vet all of the Supreme Court justices.
He told me in his life. He has never seen. As he went through all of her paperwork, a better justice than her. That is quite a statement. She's a young woman 48 years old mother seven children. People are now becoming acquainted with her, but I believe that it will be almost impossible for her not to pass through this gauntlet of getting confirmed and I believe she'll actually be confirmed and on the court before the election occurs and that is wonderful news, particularly as we said in the first program is in fact the election gets thrown into the court which is possible, if possible, but I think again we take nothing for granted and I think in these perilous days that were in.
That's why I encourage everyone on this call to be in prayer and find someone that you can pray with regularly. Maybe a prayer group or church or Bible study or someone that be intentional about praying on a regular basis. Like I said join us here in person in Lafayette Park right by the White House or go to pray, vote, stand.org pray with me on the phone every Thursday or just prayer walk your city and pray for the country. Everyone can do that and I think if we are praying into the selection as the year began great and then quickly sunk and I think we could see coming out of 2020 in not bad shape. We could end this year. Well, we don't know what the sovereign hand of God will do. But we do know that our answer of what is required of us is to pray into this year and trust the Lord for the result.
Michelle, I have thought about this year and will be talking about here on the of the top 10 Bible prophecy soars a 2020 K go into them here because time is running out, but we've seen the rise of lawlessness and anarchy.
We've seen peace efforts in the Middle East. We've seen all these increasing attacks on Christians and Christianity of course who had continuing apostasy. We've seen some pre-tribulation birth pangs.
We've seen the rise of strong delusion, how much more deluded can you get them wanting to abolish the police. For instance, are thinking that America is a racist nation which is just delusional.
We've had the longing for a Savior. When we see everything in turmoil. People start longing for perhaps just one man who's going to come with a solution to all of this course, we know that's going to be Jesus Christ but before that, at the same time, there's going to be a man of lawlessness and evils of Antichrist. The church will be gone when he comes on the scene.
So we're looking for Jesus Christ, not antichrist and Michelle I'm down here to a couple of minutes. You and I both love the prophetic word watching how prophecy is being fulfilled on a daily basis.
I'm sure you have observed how this is all speeding up as well.
It is, and I think one thing that were seeing you talked about this earlier is that there is a provoking on to jealousy.
I am seeing this because as believers are more and more vocal and more and more tied to the word of God and expressing that love and that joy that comes from our relationship of being free in Jesus Christ.
People are waking up there noticing the difference the Jewish people are waking up and noticing it, even in Israel and people in the United States that don't have peace there. Recognizing it, so rather than being in a place of sadness about what is going on. This really is the time to look up because you have given us our solution visited a great time to witness.
I thought all over and I mean you don't see this every day in Washington DC we have people just think, do you know Jesus you know Jesus and I saw with my own eyes. This effort for evangelism. We prayed for salvation over the United States and I think this is the time to shed any fears we have about witnessing to people to shed those fears and boldly and with great joy. Share the freedom in Jesus Christ that it can be theirs to you may think all I want to embarrass people. I want to bother people you have no idea. The people who want to hear this good news. And this is our privilege to be able to lead people to Christ in these days, so Bachmann thank you so much for all your doing is delivering a word of warning.
