(Republican Insider) – A song that was sung aboard an airliner by a group of Christian passengers who had just been ministering in Ukraine was performed as a means of helping to keep the group’s hopes up for all the individuals in the country who are still being targeted by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
This revelation comes directly from the pastor who led the song, according to a report recently published by the Christian Post.
“It was, of course, a video of that chorus that triggered Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who posted a snarky response about her family having a prayer time aboard an airline,” a report from WND stated. “The video was posted by Pastor Jack Jensz Jr. and has had more than 35 million views – so far.”
The report from the Christian Post then explained, “The song came on the heels of Jensz and his team being spiritually high because of what they saw God do while serving at the Ukrainian border. He said the plane ride came after their time in Ukraine, and it was their way of keeping hope going.”
Jenz then stated, “We were with our team. We’re flying away from Ukraine to another place to have a meeting. We had 10 members of our team on the plane, and we’ve been worshiping and praying for people all over the place. We decided, ‘How awesome would it be if we could just bless these people with a song and bring hope and joy to this flight as so many people are in such a devastating place in pain and suffering?'”
He went on to say that he asked the air host for permission, who then went and obtained that from the pilot of the plane.
The host then stated on the intercom, “Hey passengers, we have guests from all around the world who have been serving in Ukraine and helping the beautiful Ukrainian refugees, and they want to sing one song, just to bring joy and hope to you in this time.”
“We sang ‘How great is our God,’ which is a beautiful song,” Jensz went on to tell the Christian Post.
However, most of the attention that members of Kingdom Realm Ministries has been receiving has come from the attack launched by Omar, who is just as hateful and prejudiced as always.
Her post included a caption that said, “I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane.”
This is a comment that is right in line with previous anti-Semitic and anti-Christian statements Omar has made in the past.
Vernon Jones, a former Democrat running for a seat in the U.S. House to represent Georgia, asked Omar why she hated Christians.
Jensz went on to tell the Christian Post his event was not political, revealing that he didn’t give the attack by Omar much thought.
“For us, we just came to share the love of God, we came just to reveal to people that Jesus loves them so much, and that’s our focus. Our focus wasn’t a political agenda at all,” the report said.
The minister then went on to explain that he’s routinely been on flights where someone of a different faith will share something or pray.
“I think that we just shook the ground a little bit because it was a worship song. So it’s very out there in that sense. But I think that if you ask for permission and it’s granted and what you have to say is encouraging and uplifting and brings hope and light, sure! …We live in a beautiful, free country, and we’re free to express what we believe and what we stand firm on in our heart and if that’s bringing life,” he said during his chat with the Christian Post.
“WND reported at the time Omar criticized the praise song that Cicely Davis, a GOP candidate in Minnesota, pointed out that Islamic prayers are ‘no problem’ on a foreign airline, and suggested Omar’s problem was ‘you hate Christians & Jews & lots of Muslims,'” the report continued.
Royce White, another candidate from the state of Minnesota, responded to Omar’s antics by saying she should not “disrespect Christianity” and then stated “the Democrats you serve don’t believe in God.”
“Omar’s blast at others’ faith came just as Christians worldwide celebrated their holiest of events all year, the Resurrection of Jesus,” the report said.

Qatar – a country you’re very familiar with – plays Islamic prayers on the intercom before takeoff on their planes. They have a designated prayer area & coordinates for Mecca are posted on the screens.
It’s no problem. The issue is you hate Christians & Jews & lots of Muslims. https://t.co/wBX1ycl5nv

“Omar has appeared to leap from one scandal to another during her short time in Congress already. The Daily Caller News Foundation reported she may have committed a felony by “failing to properly report her assets and income in her financial disclosure reports to the House of Representatives,” citing a conservative-leaning watchdog group,” the WND report stated.
“That was the National Legal and Policy Center that demanded the Office of Congressional Ethics investigate why Omar’s financial disclosures make no reference to the income she may have received from her memoir published in May 2020, as well as the Democratic lawmaker’s apparently gross undervaluation of her new husband’s consulting firm, which raked in nearly $3 million from Omar’s political campaign from 2018 through 2020, campaign finance records show,” WND said.
Then, after being accused of getting hitched to her brother so that he could come to the United States and stay under immigration laws, she married her campaign manager after both of them divorced their spouses.
Omar once equated Israel and the U.S. with terrorist groups such as Hamas and Taliban. When called out on it, she expressed no regret.
This comment came after rocket fire on Israeli citizens by Hamas. She’s also had a number of other anti-Semitic statements that have stirred folks up.
