From the Editor in Chief:


It is our endeavor to provide news worthy reports of what is happening in our beloved country, that is relevant to Christian leaders and ministers, churches and ministries and to those who are Christian believers.


The articles and news published on this page have been reported by our ministry contacts and their sources are verifiable from news reports across the nation or first hand witness.  While some may not agree with the information posted, the intent is that people are made aware of the news and how it may or may not affect their Christianity, Churches or Ministries.  It is not the intention of Oasis World Wide News Publication to make false accusations, or print stories that are so controversial in nature that it is offensive.  It is our intent to share with our readers news articles that can have a positive or negative impact on our society today and in the future.

Perhaps this is the "great falling away" or apostasy that is prophecied.  If this is such a shared religious gathering...try putting a Bible in a Mosque and remove all their symbols of faith. ... "some having denied the faith giving heed to seducing spirits"  Kay Yost


Joint "Christian-Moslem" Service Was Held at National Cathedral on June 26th

On June 26, 2011, churches in 26 states in America invited Islam to come into their churches. They removed crosses and everything that offends Islam and put the Koran next to the bible on church pulpits. NTEB has reported extensively on the growing Chrislam movement. Chrislam, started in part by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church's embrace of Christianity and Islam, has grown dramatically and now has infected many hundreds of churches and denominations all across America. A new group called Faith Shared is now spearheading the move to merge Christianity with Islam, and in the process, will be provoking the very judgment of God down upon us as a nation. [Reported by: Hebrew Nation News Alerts]

- Pray for these churches; the Lord knows the names of the defiled churches who are embracing Islam, as well as the names of the ministers and the congregation members who are being deceived and mislead. He is weeping over His church.

Ask the Lord to send cleansing angels into these churches to remove the putrefaction that occurs when God's Word is compromised. Pray for the removal of these pastors from their position of influence on their congregations. Pray that the uncompromised, full Gospel will be taught in these pulpits instead. Pray!

- "For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation; ungodly men. Who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ." (Jude 4)

Security Breach!

Attention Intercessors and 5-fold Ministers:

Over the past few weeks there have been several security breaches in the public news.
       The couple who were in attendance at the White House who were not properly cleared. 
       The woman who jumped the barriers and knocked over the Pope
       The terror suspect who tried to set off a firecracker or cocktail on the Northwest plane

As I was driving yesterday I could see this from a spiritual aspect.  Unexpected penetration of the enemy taking advantage of areas where we have left our guard down or become relaxed and comfortable.  We are still on alert.  There are two aspects of this revelation.  One a personal level we need to put on the whole Armor of God.  Yesterday, I had a photo taken with my nephew.  I had on a sequin top.  When I looked at the picture, the silver looked like a shield on my chest as the light shined on it.  Many may need to cover your heart during these last few days of the year as God brings relationships, circumstances and situations to a close. 

On another level we need to corporately man our post.  Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers!  You need to not only proclaim you are in this calling, but you need to be doing it and be diligent.  The devil is diligently doing what he is suppose to do.  Holding your position can avert the enemy from penetrating. 

Apostles ... establish and deal with the foundational things.  Stay focused on the work you have been assigned.  Don't be pulled off to Pastor or Evangelize.  A Pastor or Evangelist can not do your work for you.  Declare a thing and it shall be established!

Prophets... speak forth 'thus saith the Lord' and fix breaches and schisms between you and the Apostle!  Sound the alarm and declare and decree!  In this is included Intercessors ... quit gossiping and get to praying and on the wall.  Sometimes we can believe we are discussing a situation when in fact it is gossip.  Just pray! 

Evangelist ... don't draw back and shrink down.  Radically evangelize those who God has given you to tell the Good news.

Pastors ... pay attention to sheep you have been given.  Quit gazing and looking into another pasture and watching other shepherds lest the souls you are responsible for may be lost or hurt.

Teachers ... Get it right!  Teach truth not opinion. Iit will cause saints to hear what the Lord is saying and cause the unsaved to want to be saved at any cost.

As we transition to 2010 where there is much to be accomplished, we need to carefully close out whatever the Lord is showing us so that we can be ready for the new assignments and positions he has for us.  We can't carry old things into the new season.

Take heart and do not be afraid.  (Isaiah 54:17) For unto us a child was born and given to us to save the world!  The only one who can not be surprised or deceived is God!   The President and the Pope are in their assigned positions, but the one who ordained them to be in those positions is the one who can heal, deliver and set free and that is God and God alone.  Although we can hear God in the media, watch the media who can cause us to get off our post reporting things that will distract us and have using our valuable time worrying, fretting, or gossiping and most of all not praying.

Great things are coming soon!  Let's get ready to receive!

Although the tax code permits a wide range of deductions for taxpayers in various situations, thousands of filers routinely claim deductions for various types of expenses that are in fact non-deductible. Here is a list of some of the more common non-deductible expenses that show up on tax returns each year.

9 Ways to Use a Tax Refund

4 Can't-Miss Health Deductions

Spousal and Child Support
Many taxpayers try to deduct these two forms of familial support on their returns. However, alimony is the only type of income paid by one ex-spouse to another that can be deducted.

Unreimbursed Work Expenses
Although self-employed taxpayers can deduct every dollar of work-related expenses, W-2 employees can only deduct unreimbursed expenses in excess of 2% of their adjusted gross incomes - and only those who are able to itemize their deductions.

Above-the-Line Deduction for Roth IRA Contributions
Unlike traditional IRA contributions, there is no deduction for Roth IRA contributions because the income distributed from them is tax-free, whereas traditional IRA and retirement plan distributions are taxable as ordinary income.

529 Plan Contributions
Taxpayers who contribute money to the 529 plan sponsored by their own state can often take a deduction for their contributions up to a certain limit on their state returns. However, there is no federal deduction available for this.

Political Contributions
Cash or property donations to any qualified 501(c)(3) organization are deductible, but political parties do not fall into this category. Unfortunately, but that $100 you sent in to get the candidate of your choice elected doesn't go anywhere on the 1040.

Homeowners' Insurance
The only time that this can be deducted is for those who either use part of their home for business or for those who own rental properties. Homeowners outside these categories cannot deduct their homeowners' or rental insurance under any circumstances.


Life Insurance Premiums

Except for coverage available inside Section 125 Cafeteria Plans and a small amount that can be purchased inside a qualified plan, life insurance premiums are non-deductible for individuals. Group life insurance premiums can be deducted by employers within certain limits.

Dependents Whom You Cannot Claim
Many separated and divorced couples race to claim some or all of their dependents each year whether they can or not. The IRS has a fairly clear, albeit complex set of rules that determine who gets to claim which kids. In some cases, one parent will get to claim the dependency exemption, while the other is eligible for the Child Tax Credit or Dependent Care Credit.

However, both parents often try to claim the same dependent in the same year, thus causing the return of the one who files second to be rejected. Those in this category who are legitimately entitled to claim a dependent or dependents must take up their case with the IRS and furnish proof, such as a divorce decree, that establishes their eligibility.

Substantial Contributions of Tangible Property to Charities
Although the entire amount of any property that is donated to charity can be deducted eventually, the dollar limits for this type of contribution are lower than for cash. Cash contributions of up to 50% of adjusted gross income (AGI) are deductible, but property donations have a limit of 20% or 30% of AGI.

Make sure that your property does not exceed these income limits in the year that you give it to your charity. (Being generous has never been more (financially) rewarding!

Passive Losses
Tax losses that are generated from certain types of investments or activities, such as partnerships, can only be written off against passive income, which is defined as income for which the recipient had no material role in generating. Passive losses cannot be deducted against active income, such as earnings or investment income.

Capital Losses
Although capital losses can be used to offset any amount of capital gains, they can only be deducted against $3,000 of other income each year. If you flushed your $50,000 nest egg down the toilet last year in the stock market and had no gains to declare it against, then you will only be able to deduct $3,000 of that loss as a long or short-term loss each year.

If you try to write the entire balance off at once, the IRS will gently inform you that you will have to prorate the loss for the next 17 years. Unless, of course, you reap a large gain in the future, in which case you can write off as much of the remaining loss as there is against whatever amount of gain you have earned.

The Bottom Line
This is only a list of the more common deductions that taxpayers frequently attempt to claim. If you are unsure whether a specific expense that you incurred during the year is deductible, visit the IRS website at or consult your tax advisor. (The receipts you cram into your wallet could be replaced with cash come tax season.)
