I just want to give a quick thank you and God Bless to our Congressman, Jeff Denham!  I was recently encouraged by David Bereit, 40 Days for Life Director, to send an email, “to your Member of Congress RIGHT NOW and tell them how you feel about removing ALL taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers!” So, I did, letting him know how I felt and why I believe funding needs to be pulled from Planned Parenthood.  Here was his response to my email.

Dear Patrick,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the sanctity of life. This is an issue of utmost concern to me, and I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue. I believe that life begins with conception, and that abortion is the immoral termination of an innocent human life. I feel we must emphasize the value of human life, and restore rights to unborn children.

Since 1976, Congress has included the Hyde Amendment in appropriations legislation to prohibit the use of federal dollars to fund abortions through programs like Medicaid. The amendment does not prohibit State funded or privately funded abortions; it only prohibits federal agencies like the Department of Health and Human Services from using federal taxpayer dollars to fund abortion.

I am committed to banning the use of federal funds to pay for the performance of abortions. For that reason, I support H.R. 3, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” which was introduced by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) on January 20, 2011. According to the Guttmacher Institute, about 25% of Medicaid-eligible women who would otherwise choose abortion choose life when public funds are not available. With 1 in 10 American women covered by Medicaid, the implications of this funding ban are significant.

On February 19th, the House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund federal departments and agencies through the rest of FY2011. This bill restored long standing prohibitions against the use of federal and local funds for abortion and needle exchange programs. I voted in support of Amendment 11 to the CR which prohibits the use of any federal funds from being used by Planned Parenthood Federation of America or any of its affiliates. Amendment 11, introduced by. Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) was included in the CR that passed the House. Currently, the CR is pending in the Senate.

In Congress, I will be an advocate for the rights of the unborn. I will support bills that are life-affirming, increase parental rights, provide necessary barriers to make it more difficult to get an abortion, and deny federal funding to groups and practices that provide abortive procedures of any kind. I care deeply about the dignity and sanctity of unborn human life. Rest assured, I will continue to fight for the rights of the unborn.

Finally, I encourage you to visit my website at www.denham.house.gov to get the most current information on my work in Congress. Once again, thank you for contacting me. Please keep in touch.

Sincerely,

JEFF DENHAM
United States Representative

Thank you Congressman, Jeff Denham, for being an advocate for life, a voice for the unborn!  I pray that God will continue to use you in this position to bring justice and to influence others in your sphere about the importance of life.  Also a BIG thanks to the rest of our Congressmen who voted yes on the Pence amendment…find out who voted what, HERE.

I am thrilled to say that me, my wife, and 3-month-old girl, Liberty, joined in with an estimated 50,000 PRO-LIFERS in the Walk for Life West Coast on Saturday, January 22nd.  It was a perfect day in the bay as we walked from Justin Herman Plaza to the Marina Greens.  It was only a 2.5-mile walk but with so many peaceful pedestrians the pace was protracted while the pulse from the peoples was lively in the proclaiming of how precious LIFE is!

The mile long flow of joyous people streamed through the city with radiant sunshine beating down while a very small, vulgar, and dark cloud of opposition was left standing on the sidelines to watch all 50,000 plus PRO- LIFERS walk by.  What a statement we made!  Regardless of how the “big” press covered it, the PRO-LIFE people were seen and heard and could not be ignored.  It was great to see so much diversity in race, religion, and age to come into UNITY with something that we all hold dear, LIFE.

Check out this video footage from one of the speakers at the walk, Abby Johnson:

She just came out with a new book called, UNPLANNED, get your hands on a copy to find out the truth and how important this issue of LIFE really is.  Here is a link to check out the first chapter of her book, Unplanned, http://40daysforlife.s3.amazonaws.com/chapter1.pdf

Here are some photos from the walk:

Aimee and Liberty…and my Dad 🙂

Tuolumne Bound4Life Chapter

You can’t go wrong when you are surrounded in a sea full of people that value and cherish LIFE. Thank you to all that helped put this on and to those that showed up so that others could see that the tides are changing and a GIGANTIC wave of PRO-LIFERS are crashing on the scene with Light and LIFE to reveal the Truth; breaking through the deception of pro-choice, planned parenthood, and abortion!

Thanks for reading, hope to see you all there next year! And remember, “Without LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not possible.”

Blessings,

Patrick Judah

Hello Friends,

It has now been 10 days since TheCall in Sacramento, California.  I was blessed to be able to attend it with friends and family, what an impactful day!  We were blessed the night before with a sweet compilation of worship and prophecy that released a peace into our hearts that prepared us for a full day of prayer and fasting.  I don’t know if any of you have been to a Call before or if you made it to this one, but they can be physically draining.  I really think that the night of worship before prepared my heart for the day to come.

This years Call was filled with hungry hearts of young and old, it was really cool to see full family’s there with there babies and young children, just as Joel 2:16 says, “Gather the people, sanctify the congregation,Assemble the elders, Gather the children and the nursing infants.”

Cambria Esther Atkins

There is something that happens when you gather the Body of Christ together!  The rest of Joel 2:16 says, “Let the bridegroom come out of his room And the bride out of her bridal chamber.” TheCall brought us all out of our comfort zones, our prayer closets, our churches, and into the public arena to declare our love and devotion to our Bridegroom King, Jesus Christ!  And guess what?  He came and met us where we were and He responded to the cry of our hearts.

The day started with personal reflection and repentance of anything in our own hearts that may be hindering us and those around us from getting closer to the Lord.  It was a time of searching, seeking, and asking what it is that we need to repent of and let go of to move forward.  This Call had a huge Cross in the back that we would draw our attention to so that we could lay it all down before Him, the One who took all our sins and washed it away with His blood as He was nailed to the cross.

After this personal call to repentance we were lead by different leaders in the Body of Christ to pray against some of the devastating immorality and idolatry that plagues our nation, government, social fabric, educational systems, churches, family’s, homes, babies, and personal lives.  Some of these issues included sex trafficking, abortion, homosexuality, immoral governmental leaders, personal compromise, and more.  I must say I was heavily impacted when a documentary film producer of sex trafficking held up a little child’s blood stained clothes that were found at the scene of a sex trafficking bust.  How can this be happening in our nation,  a nation with a deep conviction against slavery?  Yet this is happening in most major U.S. cities! The good news is God is revealing this darkness and answering our prayers by catching the sex traffickers, healing and setting victims free, as well as having Craig’s List ban “Adult Services” on it’s page.  May I remind you, as well as myself, to continue to pray for this issues as we know the Lord is listening and responding.

Another thing that really convicted me was the call sent out for HOLINESS and PURITY!  My generation is so filled with excess and over stimulation that we don’t even know what true holiness and purity even is.  We are surrounded by constant entertainment, technology, fashion, noise, celebrity’s, gossip, slander, drunkenness, compromise, darkness, deception, depression, immorality, etc… that we don’t even have a mindset for what the Lord has called us to.  Corey Russel shared from the stage that,

“Christianity isn’t boring, you are!”

WOW!  How can we know if God is truly fun, exciting, and adventurous if we are giving all of our time to the counterfeit with self seeking pleasures and gratifications?  O’ Lord, set my generation free from the bondage and raise up an army of young reckless abandoned lovers of YOU!  Set us free Lord.  Take our generation from holy-less to HOLINESS!

I know this little blip can’t give you the fullness of what was poured out at the solemn assembly of prayer and fasting but I pray that it will stir you enough to seek out what God is saying to you individually and what He is pouring out to His Body corporately. Join TheCall by responding and joining a world wide movement of lovesick believers that will not back down or compromise until the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

START WITH ME, SEND REVIVAL!

Hello Friends,

I hope all of you that are reading this, are aware of TheCall and it’s founder Lou Engle.  If not, may this article encourage you to find out more about them both and even inspire you to attend this upcoming Call in Sacramento, Ca September 3-4, 2010 to see for yourself.

TheCall is not an event. TheCall is a movement emphasizing prayer, worship and fasting for Spiritual breakthrough. It is a nameless and faceless movement joining the generations. It is not a convention of celebrities or rock show. The musicians on stage are worshipers, not entertainers. The board of directors will not receive financial compensation, speakers and leaders come at their own expense.

I have seen Lou Engle at several different events outside of TheCall and his message has always pierced my heart with truth and conviction.   The first time I saw Lou Engle was at a Jesus Culture in Redding California.  He was speaking to a large gathering of teenagers and young adults and the atmosphere was hungry for a deep relationship with Jesus.  Lou Engle was teaching on Joseph and Daniel and was declaring and prophesying over the crowd that God is raising up young ones to live as Daniel and Joseph did.  Then he made a call for those that want to make a vow, like the Nazarites, to come up and commit themselves to the Lord and not to the things of this world.  The front of the room was filled with fiery young ones and the Spirit of the Lord was moving.  Yes, Lou Engle is very intense on the stage and his intensity is followed with words that are even more intense, but the man and the message need to be received! There is something about a message that is filled with fire and passion that reminds me of the apostolic teachings of the disciples and of the Prophets of old in the Bible.  It seems like in this day and age there are too many teaching about how to get comfortable now and how to be accepted by everyone.  From what I have seen and heard from Lou, I know that he has compassion for this nation and for the Words that the Lord has spoken that have upheld this nation.  He has been called to call those that are hungry and are longing to see the Father return to this blessed nation.  He is calling us to a lifestyle of fasting and prayer, not out of a “religious duty” but out of a relationship with Jesus that says, “I am hungry and only You can satisfy and only You can come swiftly with justice to those who cry out day and night for You.”

I also saw him at TheCall San Diego in 2009.  This was another crucial time for the state of California when Prop 8 was being voted on.  The whole day was filled with repentance and crying out for forgiveness.  There is something about gathering together with one voice and one heart that causes you to realize that God is the only answer.  You don’t have to be a scholar of the Bible, you don’t have to have it all figured out, you don’t have to be a pro faster, you don’t have to have the best prayer life ever, you don’t have to be perfect, all you have to be is weak and all you have to do is show up.

This Call in Sacramento is being held at another critical time for our nation and state.  Not only is it the 10th year anniversary of TheCall, but it is also right before the elections and I’d say anytime is a good time to gather the Body of Christ together to fast and pray to see the Lord respond to His people.  The time is now and the trumpets are blowing, will you respond?…BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN INVITED!

Also check out this message, CALIFORNIA DREAMING, to hear Lou Engle himself about the history of TheCall and the importance of it all.
See you all there!

Patrick Judah

P.S.

As some of you may know I have been writing about mystics of the past that have had some major impact and influence on our Christian History.  Now, I don’t want to get anyone confused or upset, but I am putting this article under my “Mystic of the Month” category.  I am not titling him to being a mystic in the sense that some may use the word.  However, I feel that Lou Engle, in his passion for prayer and fasting is reviving some of the ancient paths that many of the apostles, disciples, and mystics walked out in their time. Let me know if you have any concerns or questions. Thanks.

Dear Friends,

Please listen to this message from Lou Engle.  We are in a critical point in History and Lou is having TheCall in Sacramento on September 3-4 on the 10th anniversary of TheCall Washington D.C.  This message lays out the prophetic dreams and proclamations that have been brought together since the birthing of TheCall and Lou also explains the importance of the timing and placing of this gathering in Sacramento.  If you are not familiar with TheCall Ministries check out this link: http://thecall.com/ .  Now is the time to gather the consecrated ones into a solemn assembly to fast and pray for our state of California and for our Nation!

1. “We are going to California, we are going to pray for our government.” (Psalms 2)

2. “We are going to call on God for a great river of the blood of Christ out of the Cross in Sacramento and Jesus to give us another Jesus Movement.”

3. “We are going to pray that a massive house of prayer movement will arise in every place calling on God for the harvest and loosing a generation into the missions movement.”

4. “And were going to believe that God is going to shape the elections.”

“God is the God that answers prayer!” – Lou Engle

The first 45 minutes is a worship set with Misty Edwards, really good…but if you want to skip straight to the message from Lou Engle jump to the hour mark.

Trusting in Him,

Patrick Judah

Today marks a very dramatic shift in California’s HISTORY as well as for the United States of America. Marriage has been defined as being “between a man and a woman” since the beginning.  I know you might be asking, since the beginning of what? Well, God had ordained marriage in the book of Genesis.  For any one that needs another source, let’s look at the definition in Noah Webster’s first Dictionary that was published in 1828:

MAR’RIAGE, n. [L.mas, maris.] The act of uniting a man and woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and woman for life. Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity, and for securing the maintenance and education of children.

Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled. Heb.13.

1. A feast made on the occasion of a marriage.

The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king, who made a marriage for his son. Matt.22.

2. In a scriptural sense, the union between Christ and his church by the covenant of grace. Rev.19.


So why has Proposition 8 been such a big deal?  Because it wanted to re-clarify the wording of California’s Constitutional “Family Code” definition of marriage as, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” that was previously voted in through Prop 22 by 61% in favor and then invalidated by a 4-3 decision by San Francisco judges.  The previous wording before Prop 22 was, “a personal relation arising out of a civil contract between a man and a woman, to which the consent of the parties capable of making that contract is necessary.”

But what about the peoples choices, equalities, and rights? Saying yes to Proposition 8 has not removed the choices from those that want to engage in a homosexual lifestyle.  Saying yes to Proposition 8 has not slanted the playing field of equality; homosexuals still have the right to a civil union with legal benefits that approach or are equivalent to those of marriage.  All Americans have the right to vote, no rights have been removed by saying yes to Prop 8; it is the rights of the voters that have been denied in this case.  7 MILLION (52%) CALIFORNIA VOTERS WERE DENIED THEIR RIGHTS THROUGH THE OVERTURNING OF PROPOSITION 8!

But, Antonio Villarigosa says, “Today, the sun is shining is little brighter on the Golden State, because by overturning Prop 8, a federal judge has affirmed what a majority of Californians know to be true: love doesn’t discriminate.”

I am thankful that our CREATOR and NOT man DEFINE TRUE LOVE.

What were some of the reasons that the opponents used against Prop 8? (Taken out of Prop 8 Ruling, pdf Link below)

1.    It prevents each plaintiff from marrying the person of his or her choice;
2.    The choice of a marriage partner is sheltered by the Fourteenth Amendment from the state’s unwarranted usurpation of that choice; and
3.    California’s provision of a domestic partnership —— a status giving same-sex couples the rights and responsibilities of marriage without providing marriage —— does not afford plaintiffs an adequate substitute for marriage and, by disabling plaintiffs from marrying the person of their choice, invidiously discriminates, without justification, against plaintiffs and others who seek to marry a person of the same sex.

To Perry, marriage would provide access to the language to describe her relationship with Stier: “I’m a 45-year-old woman. I have been in love with a woman for 10 years and I don’t have a word to tell anybody about that.”

–        Marriage is not the word to describe a relationship between two female partners.

To Stier Marriage would be a way to tell “our friends, our family, our society, our community, our parents * * * and each other that this is a lifetime commitment * * * we are not girlfriends. We are not partners. We are married.”

–        You can still have a lifetime commitment without being married.

To Katami, marriage to Zarrillo would solidify their relationship and provide them the foundation they seek to raise a family together, explaining that for them, “the timeline has always been marriage first, before family.

–        Marriage is the foundation between a man and a women and the foundation for a strong family.

If our basic rights are being overturned and our basic definitions of words are being redefined so that people can have their choice without being wrong…then at what point do we stop and realize we have lost everything that has been defined?

Lord, I thank You that You spoke everything into existence with Your Word, and that You uphold Your Word, and that Your Words will not be broken or redefined, but Your Words are the DEFINITION for ETERNITY! AMEN.

Keep praying,

Patrick Judah

Hello friends,

I wanted to share with you this “Call of Consecration” that Nina and Ryan Landis have been lead to and have encouraged others to respond to as well.  We are entering into a new season…what is your heart feeling?

‘I am writing this note to explain and invite any and all who would like to join my husband and I on a 40 Day Fast For The Eye Gates Of California. Beginning July 24th and ending September 2nd

…………………….
CONSECRATED – Solemnly dedicated to or set apart for a high purpose; “A life consecrated to God.”
A solemn commitment of your life or your time to some cherished purpose (to a service or a goal)
…………………….

The tensions are rising in the earth and the lines are getting blurry between what is Holy and what is not. I believe that the Lord is extending an invitation in the next 40 days for a people to step into a greater understanding of what is truly Holy, what our eyes were made to behold and the impact that we as the BODY of CHRIST have on the earth as we let the LORD, and no one else, define for us what is compromise.

About two months ago the Lord began speaking to me about “the little compromises”. In SOS Chapter 2 verse 15 it says “Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines, for our vines have tender grapes.” This passage is a reference to “little compromises” that spoil OUR vine, the vine of our hearts.
As the Lord began to speak to me about personal “little compromises” it quickly began to unfold in many areas of life, not to mention the region of California.

Recently Lou Engle came out to California for a Pre-Call Rally and as he was sharing with firey zeal as he always does, he began to speak once again about the Nazarite “Call”. Nazarites were called to a different level of consecration than others. The Lord asked them to set themselves apart in many ways from their peers and even fellow lovers of God. It’s not that the Nazarites were “better” than the others, they just had an invitation to step in to a greater measure of consecration. So what ended up being “compromise” for them maybe wasn’t at all “compromise” for another.
I feel like there are people that are called to a LIFE of extreme consecration but that sometimes we are called to SEASONS of extreme consecration…

IT’S NOT ABOUT RELIGION, IT’S AN INVITATION!

I am believing God as I fast and contend and consecrate my eyes over the next 40 days to escort in a new definition of Holiness and Consecration not just for my family but for the entire state of California. A definition that comes from God and God alone! Not from the current culture, not from the way I’ve been raised or what I’ve been taught, not from the medias definition or from entertainments standards…But from the Spirit of the Living God rising up inside of HIS body of believers! ESPECIALLY His body in California…

SO WHY CALIFORNIA AND WHY NOW?!

On September 4th in Sacramento California there will once again be a CALL to consecration! God’s people will gather together with one heart and one voice to humble themselves in the site of the Lord and repent on behalf of this nation. I believe, along with many other people, that California is a “gate” to the rest of the United States. What happens here, effects our entire country in a GREAT way.
This 40 day fast for the EYE GATES OF CALIFORNIA, beginning on July 24th and ending on September 2nd will usher in a united cry for a HOLY shift to take place in California and our nation…

It’s counter culture, it’s politically incorrect, it’s uncomfortable…BUT IT’S TIME!

We will personally be fasting any and all movies, television, visual entertainment, media, etc. Those things that grab the attention of our eye gates…ultimately the access to our hearts. I am asking that you Join us in consecrating YOUR eyes, in seeking the Lord for HIS definition of compromise for YOU, and committing to shed off any and all numbed out, dumbed down, definitions of HOLINESS that we have gradually become so accustomed to.

I emphasize this one thing again, “It’s not about religion, judging, or striving”…It’s an INVITATION of GRACE for greater consecration. Will you join us? Will you step into this level of Grace, and will you let the Spirit of the Living God re-define your inner man?

With Zeal for HIS HOUSE in my heart,
Nina Landis’
