Antifa throws flash bombs at children, injures pastor at Christian prayer event in Portland

Natan’s comments:

The story below is very alarming and only the beginning of what is to come. 

I live 20 minutes from this park. In the past, I have preached the gospel there.

What is the sickest part of it all is that the police did not show up to protect the Christians from the lawless Satanists. In the past when we street preached in Portland, the police were there to help keep the peace. The leftist thugs have now replaced the police. These Antifa goons have become the SA Brownshirts warlords in control of the Portland streets, and no one, not even the police, are able to stand up to them or stop them. This is because the politicians have defanged the police and rendered them impotent. 

The church is largely impotent to do anything as well. I used to preach to skinhead gangs and the like in downtown Portland. The anointing of Elohim was all over us when we did it. When the gangs and Satanist came against me, I’d lift up the name of Yeshua and they’d back off. They couldn’t touch me. We saw miracle after miracle. Now all the Christians do is stand around with their fingers in their mouth and say “peace in the name of Jesus” as the thugs mace them and toss their sound equipment in the river.

Moreover, where are the preachers to preach sin and repentance at that moment to these Satanist? Signs and wonders follow the preaching of the gospel, not thumb sucking and Kumbaya singing Christians. That’s what we used to do and YHVH was there to protect us. Now all these impotent Christians can do is stand there with their fingers in their mouths and sing Kumbaya. Sick and sad how the church as devolved. 

YHVH bless any Christians that may not have been in the videos who stood up and preached the gospel as Yeshua commissioned us to do.

And what’s with the sissy pastor standing in his slick suit off to the side looking all dapper, but saying and doing nothing? As I’ve said many times, as long as the pastors are behind their acrylic pulpits in the safety of their churches standing behind their security detail, they’re powerful “men of God.” But get them out into the streets, and they wilt like the real pansies that most of them are. I stood behind a pulpit for 18 years, and I also spent years on the streets preaching the gospel, so I know what I’m talking about. — Natan

Dozens of black-clad Antifa militants carrying shields and melee weapons on Saturday assaulted Christians, including children, who were attending a prayer and worship event in downtown Portland, Oregon, featuring Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski.

Portland police looked on as Antifa bear-sprayed Christians and their children, lobbed “flash bombs” into the crowd, and reportedly threw the sound equipment being used for the prayer event into the Willamette River, PJ Media reported.

In black bloc and riot gear, armed Antifa could be seen in a video physically confronting the Christian attendees. One of the members sprayed a congregant with what appeared to be pepper spray. The attendees stepped back to evade the assault, The Post Millennial reported.

“Where is your God now?” one of the Antifa members can be heard shouting in the video.

A woman attending the prayer event described the group as “ruthless.”

“Antifa just rolled in like an angry mob, started throwing flash bombs at everybody, macing everybody … rotten eggs,” CBN News quoted her as saying. “They threw a flash bomb into a group of kids that were out there from 4 months old to like 10.”

Pawlowski, who serves as pastor of Street Church and Cave of Adullam Church in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and has been seen in viral videos documenting his encounters with law enforcement over COVID-19 restrictions, was also sprayed in the face with mace.

An attendee who helped the pastor was quoted as saying, “Walked up to ask them to stop throwing things at the children. There’s kids down there. I mean, they’re toddlers and they sprayed me too.”

“Welcome to Portland. You won’t like it here, pastor,” tweeted an Antifa member, who identifies herself as Melissa Lewis on Twitter.

In an earlier interview with The Christian Post, Pawlowski spoke about his interactions with authorities over the past year and doubled down on his characterization of local law enforcement as Nazis and communists.

Pawlowski has compared the measures taken by law enforcement officials to enforce novel coronavirus restrictions on churches to the actions taken by authorities in his native Poland when it was under communist rule.

In March 2020, he was informed that Street Church would have to “shut down and stop taking care of the poor.” Pawlowski refused to obey that order, concluding that by issuing “orders to stop feeding them [and] giving them necessities of life, they were sentencing them to death. [And] some of them did die.”

“All of those people wandering the streets, if I don’t feed them or someone like me does not feed them … they’re going to attack your house or break into your car,” he added. “You got to provide people with food if they cannot get it on their own for whatever reason. … Addictions or mental illness or whatever it is, those people will eat this way or that way. I prefer to feed them instead of letting them go and hurt other people to get what they need.”

The Saturday prayer and worship event in Portland was announced a month ago, which gave Antifa enough time to plan the attack.

Antifa has also attacked several churches in Portland.

  1. the beginning is near-and we are living in the MEAN time. Live for Him, die for Him and resurrect! May He keep us faithful till the very end.

  2. Nathan, you are truly a man of Elohim, with lots of guts, to be able to stand up, with authority, to these types of ruthless mobsters. May Adonai יהוה Elohim bless you.
    If I’m ever confronted in this type of situation, I pray that Yeshua gives me the courage that He’s given you.

    • I don’t see where either the news outlet linked above or the letter from the local politicians blamed “right wing extremists.” Perhaps, the Antifa gangsters did so elsewhere.

      What disturbs me is that some of the local news reports that I read did not mention that it was a Christian group that was attacked by Antifa. They simply called it a religious event. No mention was made that it was a Christian prayer meeting and praise and worship gathering. Don’t you think that this bit of info would have changed the whole mood and tenor of the story and have made the unprovoked Antifa thugs look pretty bad and the Christians look good? NO! The leftist media can’t have that. To be sure they mentioned Antifa by name, but no mention was made of the Christians. As an academically trained journalist who has worked for several newspapers, I would consider this to be important information to add to the story. Journalists, at least in my day, were trained to cover the who, what, where, when and how aspects of every story. Someone didn’t do a good job of reporting the facts of the story. Several local news sources all used the same verbiage in covering the event. Hmm?! Wonder why this is??? This is more evidence of the moral and spiritual decline of our culture and indicative of the dark cloud of evil that hangs over our nation and world.

      • I read several articles, but you’re correct it wasn’t this one that mentioned right wing extremists. The article I linked did say: “However, Portland police said Thursday that they arrested a man who was captured on video carrying what looked like a semi-automatic rifle during the downtown clash. Police confirmed it was an airsoft rifle.”

        It was that man in other articles who was refered to as a right-wing extremist, like this one here:

        Sorry, I got my news articles conflated – same incident, however 😉

        But yes, the leftist media is absolutely not reporting the facts accurately; doesn’t fit the narrative!
