I Prayed have prayed
Father, we thank You for giving Pastor Pawlowski justice. We ask that You would continue to protect Pastors like him as they speak out against injustice and tyranny across the globe.

After his arrest, his imprisonment, and a long legal battle, Pastor Artur Pawlowski has emerged victorious. This is an answered prayer!

From Christian Post. A Canadian court has ruled in favor of a pastor who gained international notoriety for his steadfast objection to coronavirus restrictions and sought to have a lower court ruling holding him in contempt of court dismissed.

Do you want State Prayer Alerts?

 

Sarah Miller, the lawyer for Pastor Artur Pawlowski of Street Church and the Cave of Adullam in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, announced in a tweet Friday that the Alberta Court of Appeal issued the outspoken pastor a “slam dunk win.”

“The Court of Appeal made a unanimous, sound decision and overturned the finding of contempt against my client,” Miller wrote.

The unanimous ruling from the three-judge panel vacated a lower court decision holding Pawlowski and his brother, Dawid, in contempt of court for holding an illegal public gathering in violation of Alberta’s provincial restrictions on large gatherings imposed during the coronavirus pandemic. The ruling ordered Alberta Health Services to pay Pawlowski and his brother Dawid $15,733.59.

“The finding of contempt and the sanction order are set aside,” the decision declared. “The fines that have been paid to them are to be reimbursed.”

Pawlowski regarded the ruling as a welcome development in an interview with Rebel News.

“I was speechless,” he recalled. “When I learned that this was a total vindication, I stopped talking.”

After lamenting that he had “lost hope in [the] justice system,” Pawlowski expressed gratitude that, “Finally, something positive, something good is happening.” He praised the ruling as “great news, not just for us….”

When asked if he would change his behavior if he had to do it all over again, Pawlowski responded in the negative.

“Every single thing I did, I did it from the heart,” he said.

Pawlowski indicated a desire that government officials would see the court decision as an order to “let us live our lives free” and “respect our fundamentally guaranteed rights….”

“Leave the pastors alone, leave the clergymen alone, leave the Christians alone. This country was built on Judeo-Christian values, the supremacy of God and the rule of law,” he said. “We’re not criminals. Those that did that to us are the criminals. And I hope one day, we will be able to go after the real villains and charge them for the crimes that they have committed….”

Are you encouraged by this victory? If so, share this article with your friends and family to encourage them!

Praise the Lord for His great justice, intervention and mercy. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord (Isaiah 54:17).

Praise God for this godly righteous Pastor Artur Pawlowski as he walked the walk and talked the talk standing against ungodly actions and laws contrary to our Rights and Freedoms in Canada. The enormous crime he and his brother Dawid committed was feeding people that where homeless as well as holding a church service and speaking .

Praise God that major power brokers as well as oversteps of control by governmental leaders have been exposed for all to witness. Great changes are in motion right now in the Province of Alberta, Canada. New leadership is being chosen as this is being written. Nothing escapes our ever present God as His justice is already going forward.
May God have mercy on us all, and continue to bring forth His righteousness and justice.

Please go after them in a class-action suit on behalf of all Albertans that were forced to take a jab under extreme duress and my kids that were forced to or faced not finishing their last semester of university– which we sacrificed everything to pay for 5 years 😭 there was no religious exemptions or medical allowed 😡

I thank God for this brave pastor that is standing up for Jesus and righteousness. I declare and decree that his example will help other pastors and church leaders to never compromise what Jesus directs and to stand up for Biblical freedom as taught in the bible. We will obey God and not man when they are at odds.

Thank You, Jesus, for interceding and bringing all the prayers to the Father… You are Faithful and True. Lord, I pray that we, Your earthly warriors, will persist in prayer, trust in You, and continue to bring people everywhere into Your Kingdom. Keep us strong and courageous, as was Pastor Pawlowski, in the face of injustice and persecution. We need You, Lord !

PRAISE GOD and thank the judge who made a righteous decision(s) to completely free Pastor Pawlawski. He did nothing wrong. He has been obedient to Jesus Christ and preaches The Gospel and helps the homeless and poor and helps widows and orphans. The tyranny of what has been known to be free countries during this “plandemic” has been horrible – removing all freedom for each one to decide whether to get a potentially very harmful shot, (which does NOT prevent people from getting covid). It has been a TERRIBLE 2 and 1/2 years. I praise God SO MUCH for setting Pastor Pawlawski free!!!! I am a serious, committed Christian and I and so many of my friends have prayed much for Pastor Artur Pawlawski and other pastors. Our own pastor has been persecuted and falsely accused, (Pastor Mike McClure). The Gospel has gone forth. Thank The Lord!!!

Lord and Jesus name I thank you for this victory.. this is a pivotal and Monumental achievement.. especially in light of all of the press that Pastor Pawlowski has received-,.. let our encouragement on our gratitude in this situation far outweigh whatever misgivings we might have about the underlying politics.. let your Holy Spirit crash through this as a giant wave of goodness and healing when you have answered our prayers and a most astonishing and heartfelt way.. Praise You Lord and thank you in Jesus name.. even in light of how we are admonished to be thankful even when things don’t look good.. let us acknowledge how wonderful this is.. and press forward now Lord, and once again strengthen our hearts minds and souls and re-gird our loins and our spines-, with a formidable power of your Holy Spirit and your angelic host to continue to drive back the enemy, – to drive back the darkness.. that we would be able to see the victory at the end of the long tunnel Lord.. and even if we don’t see it let your light shine through US Lord as we persevere to not grow weary and well doing.. in the mighty name of Jesus-, HALLELUJAH-, and Amen!!!!!✝️✝️✝️✝️✝️✝️🙏🙏🙏👏👏👏

This is awesome and a great victory for the church, but I would just like to know the Court’s actual reasoning, did they overturn this because they found that particular law or mandate at the time to be unlawful? If that is the case, then I would believe all the other arrests and fines were also overturned, correct? Does anyone know the answers to this? ty

    Well, whatever the underlying circumstances or Pathways of either righteousness or deceit.. the important thing here is this is a very substantial and even pivotal victory.. and this is a point where we must regather our strength and muster again our fortitude in our spirituality-, and press forward even harder..

    July 30, 2022

    yes, I agree that is really important to know, because if the “law” which was probably an “emergency mandate” was found to be illegal in the first place, it would be unenforceable and unjust and no one should have been arrested or criminalized for not following a mandate issued by unelected “experts” or bureaucrats or people on boards – these things were never voted into law – just people in positions of unelected power forcing their will upon fellow citizens – we do not want this to happen again – especially if it was illegal and unjust the first time around – no reason to repeat the loss of freedoms we all suffered under the guise of our governments knowing best and protecting us, making decisions for us that are ours alone to make for ourselves. This decision sends a message of hope and encouragement that there are still those individuals out there brave enough to do what is right. Thank You Lord for vindicating this pastor and I pray many others who have been in similar situations. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

I personally heard Pastor preach at my church some months back. He had video showing the unfair way he and his brother had been treated. I went to praying and asking the Lord to help him in any way he needed..I am praising God right now for this victory. I sense in my spirit that we, here in America are going to see more of this in the days to come..The church needs to rise up and take back what the enemy has stolen. I’m standing on the scripture 2 Chronicles 7:14..If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from heaven and will heal their land. Let’s come together, wrap this up so we can go home brothers and sisters!!..Sandy

I praise God for doing what He does best. He wasPastor Pawlowski refuge and safety; He is our God that we place our Faith in there is no other God. When we place our Faith and completely trust Him his faithful promises are our armor and protection. When I saw him being drugged on that highway I prayed. Pastor Powlowski to have the strength to stand strong. His power from God and Gods words in Psalms 91- v 14 says: I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. There were hundreds that went before God to deliver prayer for the Pastor and his family. My heart is full for this family and how it stood for God. I have been reading Gods words in Psalms 91 very faithfully it gives me strength and desire to live in the shelter of The Most High our Abba Father. Be blessed.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGJwTMQbt2U. He is the Nazi. Just because he (and I, and most everyone) was against the lockdowns, that didn’t give him the right to call the police vile names and to continually screech like Hitler. He is a provocateur who wanted international attention for HIMSELF. He didn’t do this for God, he did all of this for himself. He will now have to think of something else to do in order to rile up the police so that his international tour of “Saint Provocateur” can continue.

    He was in his church preaching the gospel and health officials came in trying to shut him down. They called police that pulled him out of his meeting, put him on the ground and handcuffed him and took him to jail. He came from a communist country and the canadian health officials and police arrogantly violated his legal civil rights and you call his actions nazism? Why are you on this prayer line? Nothing he said or did was nazi like. Please see documentary about Hitler. His speech was not like nazi’s.

Psalm 50:6 The heavens declare His righteousness, for God himself is judge! Selah
Amos 5:24 But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Proverbs 21:15 When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
Romans 2:11 For God shows no partiality.
Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you but to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?

I praise You Father God, You are Judge! I pray Your justice will continue to roll down, ever flowing. I pray Your justice will terrify those who continue to reject The Truth. May they realize You show NO partiality but require lives of justice, mercy and humility. This is the life Artur Pawlowski has chosen. This is the life chosen by so many who are suffering for the Love of Christ. I pray Your victories will reign down. I ask this and so much more in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen
