CORRECTION: Apparently, there was no vote taken today but some jawboning to try to get the votes needed. I doubt that it will carry, but you never know if the NDP constituents burn up the phone lines to their MPs. I guess we will see on Tuesday (Monday is a holiday).
There's a vote coming on Monday I think from some stuff I read online. Good to pray about in advance and during.

I saw the pictures of the UN planes, not verified but as usual I got questions -- could it possibly be Trudeau bringing home some of our troops serving in the UN in order to use them to attack the truckers and other protesters? UN troops but our guys not some other country? However I've seen the tail markings of our UN planes, and they are grey not white, and they are on a C130. That is not grey and I can't tell if it's a C130 or not.

He could explain it away pretty easily, just bringing our own troops home to help out. Still needs explaining and I don't think the explaining is forthcoming any time quick because I don't see the MSM picking up on the story.

And that gets down to who do you trust? At this point my highest trust is actually Ezra over at Rebel Media. He usually has a pretty high standard and he researches things well. Plus there's others as mentioned above thread, Rex Murphy, some others. But you have to worry about whether the Star or the Natl Post or the others are being very careful in what they put out in case of govt pressure which could be pretty severe under the Emergencies Act.

meantime I'm focusing on the scriptures above and praying. Hard!

I just saw a video posted by someone in Thunder Bay, of the two enormous white planes with UN tail markings. It has been said that the soldiers who were off-loading had gas masks and there were reports that they were carrying rubber bullets with their guns. There were blue, armoured vehicles off-loaded as well--they are apparently already in Ottawa. According to various outlets, they have started tear gassing and shooting rubber bullets into the crowds of protestors who refuse to leave. A number of years back, they used the same violent tactics to go after the peaceful protests against a meeting of the World Trade Organization in Seattle. Some of the people attending that meeting are the same people who went on to become regulars at the Davos confab.
I think the report might have been bogus because whoever posted it didn't know the difference between Thunder Bay and North Bay. I saw another report that said the planes landed in North Bay, which would make a lot more sense if they were going to Ottawa. :idunno

Apparently, there is a UN company that is based in North Bay on a permanent basis so I wouldn't read into there being planes at the airport. Bad things are already happening so we don't need to exaggerate or pass on disinformation.

I have no idea how the vote is going to go. Well, I have an idea and I don't really like it but I still hope. It depends on the NDP remembering what they pretend to represent: the workers. I heard their leader is part of the WEF too so who knows.

Well, Trudeau just had a press conference where he said that if any member of parliament votes against the Emergency Act then they're just proving they don't trust in the government. If he wins, they are definitely on the proverbial chopping block. That is scary stuff. I mean, it could be a massive bluff and there has been a lot of vocal opposition to what is going on but it also could be a signal of confidence from the backers behind him. And adding to my anxiety are my former friends back in Ontario posting all of their "we just need to love and forgive" and "Romans 13 no matter what" all over social media. They think they sound so wise as they aid and abet the government in its tyranny. My husband said it's time to just ignore them until God wakes them up. It still hurts so much though. My husband's family is on the 'Romans 13" train. They know all the rules are wrong but they do them anyways. Their province never forced the vax pass on churches but I am now scared they would have gone along even with that. I know for a fact that pastors in my province were paid to preach the vax from the pulpit. Churches these days are so willing to be loosey-goosey on the stuff that matters but in genuine grey areas where we are free to follow our own conscience, they become hard and legalistic. People are free to disagree on medical decisions and using that to prevent people coming to church is just so wrong.

I am truly touched seeing other countries rallying around us. Seeing people waving our flag at their own national protests fighting for their own freedoms. I saw a video of an old Italian man sending a message of courage and hope to Canadians. They have their own crackdowns too. I know whatever happens that God is with us and true freedom is found in Christ. He saved me and I've been put here for such a time as this.
 

Everlasting Life

Through Faith in Jesus
Even this will work together for good to us who love God and are called according to His purpose. We can still give thanks, knowing that even when things are going from bad to worse, that God is using this to save a bunch of people not all of whom are truckers, and the time is short.

As I've been reading about those being jailed my prayer was that those who heard the Gospel world be saved and spread the Gospel in the jails and in the trucking community. Always the Church has grown, particularly in the midst of persecution. It seems that God in His sovereignty has allowed this situation for His purposes (however I'm thankful that He has His own limits to how far evil will be allowed, and I pray for His grace and mercy), so while the mainstream media won't share the wonderful work God is doing in the midst of great difficulty, I can know that God is most certainly working and expect to hear about this at some point in time. It is often in scripture that in the midst of hardship people finally repent and surrender to Jesus in faith and the Church, Jesus' Bride, gets to see God work through her and for her behalf in various ways.

I'm struck that sharing and getting the Gospel out has to be my own focus, even as I'm grieved to see how the coming world system in all its evil is gathering for the dark hour of trouble spoken of in Revelation. For just as this world system is at the door with bated breath to fully break through, so too is Jesus is right there ready to take us to Him at the right moment.....so, my hope (and prayer) is to add any more souls as possible to that Rapture train.

As I see these things I'm yet again reminded that what God has said in His Word is true and as we see the truth of what He said would happen in the end times coming together, we can also have renewed confidence in the truth He has shared for those who are in Jesus Christ:

.......despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:37-39

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
1 John 5:4-5

:pray ing for encouragement and strength for the precious family of God. :hug

:pray


I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Ephesians 3:16-19


.....God has said,

“I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you.”

So we can say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper,
so I will have no fear.
What can mere people do to me?”


Hebrews 13:5-6

As expected, the Emergency Act passed as the NDP voted with them. They really were in a tough place. With Singh being a lapdog for Trudeau they lost a huge chunk of their base and party financial backing. If they had voted with the will of their voters they would have forced a no-confidence vote (what Trudeau's threat was at his press conference earlier today) and they would have lost a lot. They couldn't afford an election right now and would maybe lose their party status. But, going along with the Liberals they are going to lose the bulk of their remaining supporters. But this way they figure they can at least keep their individual seats, salaries and pensions. I don't agree at all with the NDP party and I do think their philosophy was always leading to this spot but one of their former leaders, Jack Layton, was a proud Canadian and stood by the Charter. There is a reason he brought them to Royal Opposition status for the first and only time.

I am mourning my country. The Conservatives have vowed to fight back. The moment the motion passed, the interim Conservative Leader, Bergen, brought up one of the Emergency Act's motions says that if enough MPs sign a petition they can recall it. But she was instantly interrupted by one of the Liberals who said they agreed to end the session the moment the vote passed and even the Speaker wouldn't let her finish. And now they're giving themselves a week-long vacation. What can be done in that mean time?

George and I were just talking last night about how Jack would NEVER have stood for such a thing. We never vote NDP but we did love Jack as a true and loyal Canadian. That is 100% why the NDP gained so much ground. Now Singh just showed us all where his loyalties lie and it isn't his voter base or Canada and he is unfit to lead anything. I hope he loses every last seat.

Hopefully this will just give more time for the Conservatives under Bergen and Poilievre to reload. Praying. Because she is just interim leader of the Conservatives it's hard for her to do as much, but Pierre Poilievre who cast his hat into the ring on Feb 5 for leader, is showing some promise and between them both maybe something can be done. Praying so but trusting in God for the outcomes, His will not mine.

Pierre's site has a petition going to end the Emergency Act-- I just signed.

While I was praying about this situation last night, 2 verses drifted into my head and wouldn't leave.

1 Thess 5:18 which is written in the context of the Day of the Lord approaching, and enduring evil times. Paul writes:
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Romans 8:28 which occurs in the context of enduring suffering (the passage 18-30 talks of moving from suffering to glory and talks of waiting with perseverance, and how the Spirit prays and makes intercession for us)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

It just kept coming back to me, in EVERYTHING, ALL THINGS. God knows. He keeps accounts.

Even this will work together for good to us who love God and are called according to His purpose. We can still give thanks, knowing that even when things are going from bad to worse, that God is using this to save a bunch of people not all of whom are truckers, and the time is short.

Then this morning one of the elders was asked to lead the service as our pastor is still recovering from a heart procedure and the attack that preceded it.

He read the entire book of 1 Peter from beginning to end and it felt so encouraging and so like Peter was talking directly about this. As a sermon, it was wonderful. I was so grateful to hear it. Our little church supports the truckers and the cause of freedom and prays accordingly and he was feeling so grieved as he prepared for Sunday. He kept feeling the Lord nudging him to just read 1Peter aloud.

It was wonderful.

I share that hoping that those of you who felt disheartened by all the wickedness in Ottawa will be comforted by God's Word, His exceedingly great and precious promises as 2Peter 1: 4 calls them.

1 Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
God bless you sister. Everything always looks better when we remember Who God Is. God will never fail! God loves when we give Him Glory and remember that with Him all things are possible and we can rest on His promises. Praying for Canadians and all who love freedom and recognize our freedoms come from God.

Here's the latest message to Andrea and me from the pastor's wife who lives just outside of Ottawa and ministered alongside her husband to the truckers and their supporters. She and her husband Terry are the real deal: true ministers of Jesus Christ.
-----
Hi there…just wanted to keep you and Andrea up to date even though I am sure you are keeping an eye on the news.

The house passed the motion but sounds like senate review is tomorrow and has to pass there too if it is to be allowed. Most believe it will pass through. Trudeau wants this power for 30 days and then will want to extend it of course.

We have been in prayer about it all with our group and some friends. We know it could very well mean the end of democracy here as we have known it. I do think it has been eroding away for years, even decades, and many are waking up to it now.

Truckers and donators to the truckers fund are having their personal bank accounts frozen and some have been arrested. Just the same, spirits are high and they are working at their next plan and ways to get the raised funds into the hands of these courageous men and women.

As we talked with our friends tonight, we know that we could get a small reprieve but that eventually there will be a one world totalitarian government as the Bible says. We see all the pieces of the puzzle coming together to form the end times scenario spoken about, along with the degrading conditions of the world and society and the falling away of the church.

Regardless of the outcome of the vote, we told our faithful little group that our focus has to be on evangelism and not hoping that some political change will solve things and put us back to the normal we once knew. That will likely not happen as we are too far down the prophetic road and too far into the evil agenda for that to happen. Although we do hope and pray for righteous government that honours God, if that doesn’t happen we still have to keep our joy and peace and maintain the course set before us.
I keep reminding myself we aren’t losing the war, just a few battles along the way!!

Thank you for your prayers. God bless and talk soon.

Lorraine
P.S. Please pray for us to have wisdom about decisions we have to make. If things turn really bad here we need to know what God wants us to do. We have family and friends here and our young believers, so I don’t want to abandon them. Perhaps we can take them all with us or perhaps we are to stay here. Best scenario would be that the sky opens, the trumpet sounds and we are all out of here together!!! Xoxox

Father God, please incline your ear to your faithful servants, your children, who have been faced with a tremendous trial before them. But God, You remain in control, as Always. Help our sister Lorraine and all who are being affected by this oppression, the atrocity of being stripped of their freedoms and to remain in Your strength to endure while taking a stand for righteousness and above all for the freedom to be the Ambassadors of Christ they have been commissioned to be, and continue to speak the gospel lest the stones will cry out. Maranatha! Lord Jesus come quickly. In Jesus name I pray and let God's people say Amen!

This is what irritates me the most about the US as well. Yea, better late than never, but it's so disheartening that it takes people seeing others beaten and thrown in prison to realize theyre under attack. :ohno And that still doesn't mean they will acknowledge Christ either.


Regardless of the outcome of the vote, we told our faithful little group that our focus has to be on evangelism and not hoping that some political change will solve things and put us back to the normal we once knew.

I think I need to go and listen to some Fred Penner. My kids like "The Cat Came Back" and "Never Smile at a Crocodile". Another bit of Canadiana that I like is "The Log Driver's Waltz". I don't know what I am, and am not, allowed to link to when it comes to YouTube videos but people should look those up. Oh! And "The Man on the Moon is Newfie" by Stompin' Tom Connors. I just want to remember what I love about my country. Mourn a little. Laugh too.
