Monday, June 6TH – 7:00 p.m.
Location: Longview First Church of The Nazarene,
2601 H.G. Mosley Pkwy., Longview

 This meeting’s topic will be concerning an alarming and real threat facing our country:

 EMP – ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE

With the rising nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran, this threat can no longer be ignored or put in the back your mind. At this meeting we will watch an interview with Mark Levin and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, Executive Director, EMP Task Force on National & Homeland Security.

Levin
Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is Executive Director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and Director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, both Congressional Advisory Boards, and served on the Congressional EMP Commission, the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA. He is author of Apocalypse Unknown: The Struggle To Protect America From An Electromagnetic Pulse Catastrophe & Electric Armageddon, both available from CreateSpace.com and Amazon.com

 ALSO joining us for this meeting will be Texas Senator Bob Hall (SD2)

Hall_Action

TOPIC:  “Protecting the Texas Electrical Grid from Terrorist Threats”.

As you may already know, most of Texas has its own power grid.  Conservative Champion Senator Hall authored legislation to protect our Texas electrical grid.  It passed the Texas Senate; however, due to pressure from the power companies, it was killed in the House.

 Protecting our power grid should be a PRIORITY for the 2017 Texas Legislative Session.

Please join us for this very crucial issue facing our country
AND THE STATE OF TEXAS!

Avi-Lipkin-June-15-150x150

Guest Speaker: Mr. Dennis Avi Lipkin from Israel
TOPIC: Iran and the ISIS rivalry and how it affects the world.

About the speaker:
Avi Lipkin has spoken to numerous churches, synagogues and civic groups (including radio and TV appearances). He offers compelling proof that the fanaticism of radical Islam is the number one threat to world peace today!
In his first book, Is Fanatic Islam a Global Threat?, Avi presents his belief that Christians and Jews must forge an alliance to stop Islam’s secret goal to destroy Judaism and Christianity and dominate the world. His second book, released in late 1999, Christian Revival for Israel’s Survival expresses the need for Christians to awaken to their responsibility to stand with Israel in the days ahead.

Avi studied for an MA at Israel’s Conservative Jewish Seminary, is a spokesman for the Israel Defense Force (reserves) and is a former Sr. Editor and translator for the Israeli Government press office under Prime Minister Shamir.

For the last several years, Avi has traveled extensively throughout the United States, speaking to churches and groups of every size and denomination. He has appeared on TV many times with Zola Levitt, 700 Club, Carlos Ortiz, (in Spanish), J.R. Church, and on radio with Marlin Maddox, Jewish Voice, John Loeffler, Chuck Missler and many others. He has spoken across the country at Calvary Chapels, Prophecy Club, Assemblies of God, Women’s Aglow and more.
