I Prayed have prayed
Father, do not let us live in fear. Help us to make no provision for the enemy to attack and give our nation wisdom and discernment.

Video went viral this weekend of a Polish pastor in Canada booting some six police officers and health officials from his house of worship as they were seemingly trying to shut down a Passover service over COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.


The pastor in the video, Artur Pawlowski, notably called the officials “Nazis” and the “Gestapo,” the secret police of Nazi Germany, and told them not to come back without a warrant. . . .

“I grew up in Poland under the boot of the Soviets, behind the Iron Curtain,” the pastor said. “What I see right now, I see everything escalating and moving to the new level. They’re acting just like the Communists were acting when I was growing up when the pastors and the priests were arrested, and some were murdered. Many were tortured.”

“That’s why I say what I say,” Pawlowski explained. “Because I see a repetition of history.” . . .

I am 100% in agreement with what Karen said. I want to thank Pastor Pawlowski for his courage in taking a stand and not bowing down to these people. You were 100% right in what you did. And I pray for the American people to take a stand against these mask mandates and social distancing; to use your power and authority to bring down these strongholds. Because when the Son sets you free, you are free indeed!! 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us we are not given a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. I pray for Pastor Pawlowski and his family for peace and protection. May we all show the same courage as he has. God bless you!

This is my kind of immigrant. Legal and loves his adopted nation. Pastor Pawlowski, thank you for protecting your sheep and speaking up for all of us.

I think he is spot on right. We have to be men and women of God who don’t bow down to these people. I am happy to see more states taking away the mask mandates that never should have been there in the first place. We have to expose the fraud and never be so fearful that we lose our country and our freedoms.

A Word to the wise from the wise and one who knows is sufficient. I have met another man last month who grew up as a child in a communist country and is sickened what he is seeing in America…

I believe the pastor was right in what he did! The Bible teaches us that God should have first place in our hearts and in our worship! The government has no right to enter the Church to stop the services, period!! Prayers for the pastor and church!

This blessed pastor is a hero! He nailed it when he called them Nazis. That is exactly what they are, and it saddens me that the police would align themselves against the very people who supported them all through the insane “defund the police” campaigns. Where are their minds? Dear God, please open the eyes of our law enforcement members to resist pressure to employ brown shirt tactics against Christians. This I pray in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen

I thank God for his boldest and plead the blood over him in Jesus name. American Christians needs to wake up. It’s only the beginning of persecution in US. We had it to well and fell asleep while the enemy lead us down a road of destruction. May the Lord strengthen us and open our spiritual eyes and increase our decernment for this time and season in Jesus name

Read Rod Dreher’s book Live Not By Lies in which he documents exactly what this pastor is saying.

God bless the pastor! He is not alone. It is the victims of communism in this country that are identifying and resisting Communism. I pray their courage will entice American pastors and people to do the same.

I read about this on Reclaiming America:


Padtor Artur Pawlowski is standing his ground and is a man of God!

II Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
I was in the grocery store today. Governor Ducey, here in AZ has removed the mask mandate in our state. Individual business can still require masks. Customers must ignore the CDC if we are going to get back to some semblance of normal. It is a delight to see the faces of people not wearing masks in the store! What a ray of sunshine! A prayer for Artur Pawlowski: “Father, Pastor Pawlowski’s words and actions are what courage looks like in these evil days! I pray that you will breed into every pastor in every pulpit a holy boldness to take a stand for religious freedom. We have been “muzzled” for a year! God forgive us for taking so long to figure out what this “plandemic” is really all about! We are your army! Please use us to push back evil in our own little corners of the world. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.”

When I first watched this video on the news, I wanted to give this Polish man a great big hug and thank him for showing such bravery. He did exactly what any good shepherd would do. Protect the sheep! But of course, that is how Poland is today because they know their history. God bless Pastor Pawlowski.

    Wow, I so share your feelings and would love to give him a hug for protecting his sheep.
    Bless him, Lord. I plead the blood of the Lamb over him, his family and his sheep. Continue to wake up Your church, O Lord, so we can stand as one against Your enemy.

Jude, where can I find the Biblical Constitution course? It looks very interesting. Even though by the grace of God I have not encountered religious persecution in the past, I rebel at any type of persecution, no matter what, but when our God-given Constitutional rights are being violated that’s a true travesty. Thank you for your forthright story, and may God bless you.

This is a shocking reality for me! I had already watched this video clip just after I heard Pastor James Coates interview about his time in an Alberta jail. The Canadian law enforcement had showed up at Pastor Coates’ church as well. Pastor Coates wasn’t preaching; some of the congregation kept the officers outside.

I live in a smaller southern city. I think worship is an inalienable right and government should not intervene in my worship. Government is here to protect my inalienable rights. (My church already had a healthy online ministry. We chose to help stop the spread initially with going to online classes. However, we did reopen early. Nothing can replace in house worship no matter how good your programs are! We lost some satellite churches who depended on school buildings for on site services, too.)

I thank God for Rick Green and his Biblical Constitution course. 34 % of our Constitution can be traced to our faith documents. Our Founders rocked in faith— even the one who I always thought had no faith! I am learning that many of our current statements about the Founding Fathers is based on ‘our’ modern knowledge of words and not the definitions accepted 250 years ago.

I pray God will impress the importance of revisiting the Constitution on many of you. We must learn our history again and our Constitution. Sign up for the course and see how grounded in faith the least ‘religious’ founding father was and read about men who have been portrayed as Deists. The course goes all the way back to the Pilgrims in Europe. My mind has been renewed already and I’m not finished. If you already know all this, perhaps you could refresh your mind and spread the knowledge as a Constitutional Coach. God is providing us many opportunities to return to our foundations and train our peers and future generations.

We must reclaim our last 50 years of moral decline and reeducate our faith communities…
