50-Day Divine Reset from Passover to Pentecost
-James Goll

We have entered into a 50-Day Divine Reset from Passover into Pentecost.
In this strategic time in history, “God is Pushing the Reset Button.”
In order to pass through this crucial period, it will require some intense chiropractic adjustments including Recalibration. Whatever is out of alignment, will be challenged.
There will be a lot of pulling and stretching as we eventually move into a Recovery Phase and ultimately, if the Lord is willing, into one of the greatest times in recent history called the “Restoration of All Things” (see Acts 3:19-21).
These are extreme times. If we are not careful and prayerful, we could enter into a new War between the States where the West Coast wants one set of guidelines and the North East sector another. The Deep South, with its religious roots, could cry “foul” and demand that we take another look at the Bill of Rights.
It is vital that we seize the moment during this 50-Day Divine Reset!
But through the lens of redemptive interpretation, let me share with you a few of the God Encounters I have recently received.
As It Was in the Days of Noah
In a vivid dream, I was given a scroll that became a blueprint on how to build an ark that would last throughout the storm. I appeared as Noah in the dream leading my family in the construction of an Ark of Preservation.
As we completed our family ark, others joined us and wanted to build arks of protection and provision for their families as well.
As I gave my one blueprint away, it multiplied. At the close of the dream I saw scores of arks being constructed that could stand the wind and the waves of the coming storm.
When I woke up out of the dream a phrase was written upon my heart— “As it was in the days of Noah.”
You can be a Noah for your family and sphere of influence, creating a space of protection by being a carrier of His brilliant presence.
Will You Turn Aside?
During a recent spring evening, I felt compelled to go into the backyard of my home in Franklin, TN and simply worship and wait upon the Lord.
Whispers of clouds came floating by as I peered heavenward. As I paused in the silence, I was thrilled to see the beauty of the full moon.
His voice came to me, “I will speak in unusual ways in this season. I have been waiting for such a long time for my people to slow down in order to listen. I have many things to say in these days concerning new ways, new beginnings, fresh alignments, new wine skins for the new wine. I want to share my heart on seed time and harvest, sowing in tears and reaping with joy. Will you turn aside as Moses did? I AM there waiting.”
Passover Insights
On the evening of Passover, I was taken on a journey by the Holy Spirit into realms of God’s Eternal Dwelling.
I entered into a CREATION ROOM in our Father’s House. The atmosphere was charged with an electric presence of God the Creator.
Brilliant Ideas. Dreams. Witty Inventions. Stunning Colors. Divine Intelligence.
A Word captured my attention. A Word permeated my being. “We are entering into a Fresh CREATION Season in the body of Christ. We are entering into a Fresh CREATION Season in the World.”
The journey was over as quickly as it began. But ever since, I have been saturated with creative concepts, ideas and brilliant thinking.
It has left me musing, “Is this what it is like to have the Mind of Christ?”
I am convinced that we are truly Passing Over from one ERA in History into a brand New ERA.
One Question Remains
There is still one major question that looms before us all.
You cannot change the past. But you can choose how you will move forward.
Will you seize the moment?

Each of us must answer this question. And no one else can answer it for you.
Do not entertain the idea that you can merely glide into your bright tomorrow.
No! Siege the Moment! Get in His face.
Get His blueprint for your family and your sphere of influence. Go into God’s Creation Room for yourself and call forth divine intelligence.
Be the answer! Turn aside like Moses did knowing that “I AM is waiting there!”
You can seize the moment during this 50-Day Divine Reset!

Repentance, Recovery, Recompense

Steven Stephen Strang talks to Jeremiah Johnson about 2020's prophetic calendar

North Korea

I heard the Lord say, “Keep your eyes upon North Korea and pray for something shocking will be revealed for all to see. Watch as things that were concealed will be revealed. The quiver rattles against him, the flashing spear and javelin are like an open grave. The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, for I the Lord alone am to be exalted among the people in the earth.”

Coronavirus Origins, China’s “Bat Woman," and the CCP’s Coverup—Joshua Philipp

Where did Wuhan coronavirus, or CCP virus, really originate?
Why was the wet market—the supposed source of the virus—destroyed?
And what actual evidence is there connecting COVID 19 to the P4 bio lab in Wuhan?
In this episode, we sit down with Joshua Philipp, a senior investigative reporter at The Epoch Times and host of Crossroads. He stars in the new Epoch Times documentary “Tracking Down the Origin of Wuhan Coronavirus.”

The scab & the wound beneath
-Victor Davis Hanson

The pernicious coronavirus tore off an American scab and revealed suppurating wounds beneath. Take the central actor of this plague, China. For much of the twenty-first century, the American establishment’s foreign policy toward China, to the degree it was even formalized, was ethically and logically bankrupt. Yet the status quo remained unquestioned, given it rested on a rare alignment of both progressive and commercial self-interests.
Of course, Americans in general have had a long romance with China. They were never colonialists in China, at least in the manner of the Europeans. Over fifteen million Chinese, our erstwhile allies, were killed in World War II, many brutally slaughtered by our enemies, the Japanese.
More recently, Mao Zedong, arguably the most lethal mass murderer of the twentieth century—perhaps a greater killer than Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot combined—held an attraction for the New Left of the 1960s. His cherubic smile, worker’s cap, peasant dress, cool aphorisms, and hatred of running-dog capitalists once captivated student protestors. Even Barack Obama’s acting White House communications director, Anita Dunn, in 2009 still swooned that Mao was one of her two favorite political “philosophers”:
And then the third lesson and tip actually come from two of my favorite political philosophers, Mao Tse-Tung and Mother Teresa—not often coupled with each other, but the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point, which is, you’re going to make choices. You’re going to challenge.
More recently for the Left, China has become empathetic as the classic long-suffering “other”—as opposed perhaps to the less sympathetic discriminated-against Chinese-Americans applying to Ivy League colleges. Beijing is guilty of interning roughly one million Muslim Uighurs, all but wiping out the culture of Tibet, destroying vestigial democracy in Hong Kong, and forging a new Silk Road imperialism in Africa and Asia. This is to say nothing of their systematic patent and copyright infringement, pollution, and currency manipulation. And yet liberals have been hesitant to fault China for these legal injustices and civil rights violations.
Indeed, in the present crisis, China is now praised for its supposedly more successful reactions to the very virus that it spawned than the remedies of the Trump administration. We are learning that the Left accepts and finds politically useful the ridiculously constructed data issued by the Chinese communist government. That fact is known to Beijing, which in turn might explain why it keeps promulgating outright lies about virus fatalities that are embarrassing to all but the American Left.
Hillary Clinton, for example, on March 27 retweeted a New York Times story with the headline “The U.S. Now Leads the World in Confirmed Coronavirus Cases. Following a series of missteps, the nation is now the epicenter of the pandemic.” She added her own snarky editorial quip: “He did promise ‘America First.’ ”
Aside from her apparent indifference to American dead and ill being used as a source of embarrassment to the American government, Clinton must have also known that the United States was not the leader in the world in actual deaths or cases, given that by mid-March the Chinese government had simply declared that the virus all but over in its 1.4-billion-person population, and claimed falsely that there were few, if any, new cases or deaths. Such myths were necessary to shift blame for Beijing’s culpability in spreading the virus by fraudulently claiming credit for first eliminating the contagion. Clinton further knew that in terms of deaths per million, a 330-million-person America was not “first,” given that almost all European countries, with the exception of Germany, had suffered a far higher fatality to population rate.
Chinese money has been far more influential in warping American politics than were the supposedly colluding Russians who ran some Facebook ads to stir up chaos in 2016 and may have spent a few million dollars in salting misinformation. By the time the virus abates, there may indeed be Chinese “collusion” in this election year, as the media and the Left parrot the Chinese Communist Party’s conspiracy theories and fantasies about the virus, ones deemed mutually efficacious in ensuring that the purported Sinophobe Donald Trump is not reelected. It would be no exaggeration to suggest that the Chinese communists and the American Left hate Trump equally. 

-Ron Mc Kenzie

According to God’s law, quarantining sick people is a sensible response to an epidemic. God provided quarantine rules for sick people to prevent disease from spreading within the communities where his people lived (Leviticus 13-15; Numbers 5:1-4). A number of things should be noted.
Quarantine functioned within local communities. Moses encouraged the Israelites to quarantine people who became sick with infectious diseases.
Send away male and female alike; send them outside the camp so they will not defile their camp, where I dwell among them.” The Israelites did so; they sent them outside the camp. They did just as the LORD had instructed Moses (Num 5:3-4).
The quarantine actions were taken by the people.
Sick people were expected to remain outside the camp. This was essential while they were travelling through the wilderness in tents and living in very close proximity to each other.
They remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp (Lev 13:46).
I presume that once they were settled in the land, they would be quarantined to a dwelling on the edge of their towns and villages.
People were required to care for their neighbours, so they would be expected to provide food and shelter for people who were unable to get food, because they were quarantined. According to Leviticus 19:18,
"Love your neighbor as yourself."
The people living in the community where the person who was quarantined would need to provide them with food. If their house was quarantined, they would be provided with safe shelter.
Sick people and their families were quarantined. Healthy people were not isolated or quarantined (unlike modern shutdowns).
In the OT Law, there is no central government to declare and enforce quarantines.
The quarantine was primarily voluntary, but was enforced by social pressure. People could separate themselves from those who were sick without fear of criticism.

Should a Christian Always Obey the Government?
-Wade Burleson

My opposition to an Emergency Order is not personal; it is based upon principle. Besides the disparity of allowing national chains to remain open while our local small business owners suffer, there are two major issues with government Emergency Orders.
1. The government encroachment into private businesses, ordering them closed without due process, is supremely unconstitutional, especially when there's been no "emergency" in a shortage of hospital ICU capacity (the original reason given for the EO).
2. The thousands of lives being wrecked and destroyed in the effort to save "even one life" from Covid-19 is immoral, for we unintentionally destroy far more lives in the cure than does the disease itself.
But Doesn't Romans 13 Tell Christians to Obey the Government Authorities?  
Some of my Christian friends are asking, "As a Christian, aren't we supposed to obey the government? Isn't that what Romans 13 teaches?"
No. The Scripture nowhere teaches that Christians are to obey leaders. We are called to respect them.
