I Prayed have prayed
Lord God, we ask for Your help in safely evacuating any remaining U.S. citizens from Afghanistan. We ask You to give our leaders the wisdom and direction to accomplish this.

There are many, many questions about how the Biden Administration has handled and is handling the crisis in Afghanistan. Here is proof of official obstruction of potential evacuations. What do you think? Leave a comment . . .

The State Department refused to grant official approval for private evacuation flights from Afghanistan to land in third countries, even though the department conceded that official authorization would likely be needed for planes to land in those nations, an email reviewed by Fox News shows.

Furthermore, the State Department explicitly stated that charter flights, even those containing American citizens, would not be allowed to land at Defense Department (DOD) airbases. U.S. officials have pointed to possible security threats from landing charter planes at military bases, saying that they lack the resources on the ground to fully verify flight manifests…

Eric Montalvo, who organized a series of private flights evacuating those stranded in Afghanistan, shared that email and others with Fox News after his evacuation efforts were repeatedly hampered by the federal bureaucracy.

A Sept. 1 email that a State Department official sent to Montalvo underscores the extent to which private evacuation efforts have run into bureaucratic roadblocks…

“You need to find another destination country, and it can’t be the U.S. either.”

The official noted that though some third countries “may require” official approval from the State Department before accepting the private charter flights, the department “will not provide” that approval…

During briefings on Sept. 2, the day after the official noted that the State Department would not be officially approving charter flights, White House press secretary Jen Psaki and State Department spokesman Ned Price…said that the Biden administration was not preventing planes from leaving…

Blinken also denied that the Taliban was seeking to block passport-holding Americans from leaving Afghanistan…

Rick Clay, who runs the private rescue group PlanB, previously told Fox News that the State Department is the only thing preventing the flights he’s organizing from leaving Afghanistan. Other organizers of separate rescue missions echoed Clay’s criticisms to Fox News…

While the State Department claimed to have “facilitated” the family’s evacuation, the organizers behind the rescue mission said that the department was exaggerating its involvement and deserves little to no credit for the rescue.

What are your thoughts about how our government is handling the evacuation effort? Share in the comments below, and add a prayer!

This State Department, and this administration, have blood on their hands! What they have done, and are doing, is despicable and deplorable!
Father, we ask for miracles and wonders, on behalf of the Americans, and Afghan Christians, that are in Afghanistan, waiting to come here. Father, protect them as they wait, and open all the doors for them that only You can. You said, “call unto me, and I will show you great and mighty things you don’t know about.” We praise You, as we wait to see Your great and mighty hand of deliverance! In Jesus name.

There is a little thing once called a “facility License” when I was involved with non government aircraft and military airfields (late 70’s). They cost about $10,000 a day for one aircraft on one stated date. he people who are complaining evidently wanted a free ride with no liability insurance fore their flight. The only private person on our list of 12 insured with world wide access was was Nelson Rockefeller.
Someone is spreading rumors because they couldn’t cheat the system well know to be in place by any airline or charter service capable of such flights.

Father, such horrendous evil. We lift our voices to you for continued rescues, for hiding people, for confusion among the Taliban that they would turn on themselves. Turn their hearts to you that they may be saved.

Psalm 52:1-7 comes to mind when I look clearly at the Biden administration and especially his state department and hand picked military heads (it would be an affront to call them leaders).
•Psalm 52:1–7 (ESV): 1 Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man?
The steadfast love of God endures all the day.
2 Your tongue plots destruction,
like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.
3 You love evil more than good,
and lying more than speaking what is right. Selah
4 You love all words that devour,
O deceitful tongue.

5 But God will break you down forever;
he will snatch and tear you from your tent;
he will uproot you from the land of the living. Selah
6 The righteous shall see and fear,
and shall laugh at him, saying,
7 “See the man who would not make
God his refuge,
but trusted in the abundance of his riches
and sought refuge in his own destruction!”•
>Father God – we come before you and ask you to keep the promise of Your perfect word. We commit this administration to You for salvation, for your justice and for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen

Word from the Lord: Afghanistan is the Biden Adm. “Bride price”.

The Biden Administration has made the people of Afghanistan their ‘bride price’ in order for us to be ‘married’ to the Taliban. The Biden Administration’s goal is to eventually give the Taliban official recognition as rulers of Afghanistan, even though they are a foreign invading force – thus the BiAd say they have a ‘wait and see’ dependent upon how well the Taliban behave. (Which of course they aren’t and won’t.)
The goal is for Pakistan to have a caliphate so they can exert control over the other terrorists groups, such as the Taliban, Boko Haram, ISIS, Al Quidah, Iran etc, thus the Biden Administration thinks we will be able to negotiate with them.
Evidently, by the Biden Administration’s actions, we have agreed with the Taliban for them to keep dissidents so as to use them as hostages to demand America’s recognition of them as a legal power, but the plan is backfiring because private American citizens are rescuing the hostages before they can be pawns in the game. Most of the Afghans we ‘rescued’ during the US evacuation in Kabul were just Afghans who had never helped Americans do anything. And I’m sure you noticed, the US was NOT helpful to get Americans out, or Afghan aides, in fact they were downright obstructionist to rescuing anybody, who really needed it.
The Biden Administration is stupid enough to believe they can negotiate with the Taliban through Pakistan. Honor Killing is part of the Taliban’s mentality, and they cannot tolerate any dissidents or American sympathizers. Their power lies upon fear of torture and death, not negotiations.
Our Biden Adm. is Marxist Globalist, even though they don’t go by the name, their speeches expose their loyalties, which isn’t our Democratic America Republic.
The Marxist Globalists agenda is for division of the world into about about five sections in order to coordinate their rule. The idea is for China to rule Asia and Australia, the EU is to have Europe and Russia, Pakistan is to rule the Middle East, America is to rule North America, and some country such as Venezuela or Cuba to rule South America. The communists have always intended to rule the world, you know. Of course the whole agenda is stupid evil empire building, (which the Left declaims), and devil inspired.

This administration is more of a terrorist threat than the Taliban, the North Koreans, or the Chinese. I can see Hitler written in everything they do. I don’t understand, but in all of the conflicts that have threatened people since the beginning of time, GOD HAS BEEN IN CONTROL. We aren’t required to understand; we are just required to pray. I TRUST HIM; HE HAS SAID THAT HEAVEN IS MY HOME. THE BOOK OF REVELATION REVEALS MUCH THAT IS HAPPENING NOW. MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED TO PRAY; MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED TO TRUST HIM. THE ONLY ANSWER I HAVE FOR ANY OF THIS; GOD’S WILL BE DONE.

    Revelation 13:18 calls Believers to wisdom: “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is 666.” What if the beast is not specifically one man but representative of all unregenerate humanity and the systems of government they set up? The perfect man-centric system then could be represented as a triune human power that mimics the divine trinity but is always coming up short. As Dr. Gregory Beale of Westminster Theological Seminary says in his piece “Why Is the Number of the Beast 666?”, “The beast is the supreme representative of unregenerate humanity, separated from God and unable to achieve divine likeness, but always trying.” (https://faculty.wts.edu/posts/why-is-the-number-of-the-beast-666/).

    I believe we are witnessing the formation of the beast led by a deceived and godless political class and a populace willing ignorant of God. At some point–a year, a decade, a century–to live in this godless system will require swearing fealty to it–to the denial of Truth. Call it cancel culture on steroids. Marxism, communism, socialism, fascism, whatever ism one prefers, it’s all a spiritual war between the beast and all of God’s kids. We know who wins…but that doesn’t mean there won’t be heartaches along the way.

    Now more than ever we need to pray, to trust God because he is trustworthy, and speak as the prophets of old did, even if it costs us. Lord, give us wisdom to understand, knowledge to navigate the road ahead and the courage to stick it out to the end, no matter what.

      Thanks Terry for taking the time to reply; it seems like we are all on the same page: THE LORD’S WILL BE DONE. The Lord applauds obedience, and Paul said to “pray without ceasing”. We need to fill our lanterns, keep a supply of extra oil, for we don’t know when he will be coming.

This is just another example of their total disregard for human life.

Lord, please step in and rescue those stranded in Afghanistan.
