The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Breaking & Remaking

“We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will surely overcome it.” ~ Numbers 13:30

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials. ~ James 1:2

Ah my brothers…the James 1:2 punch, eh? For the sake of Jesus, we will be tested, we will suffer, we may even die. Moses had everything. Born the son of Pharaoh, a prince with every “privilege and pleasure of the palace” as Maxwell shares in his daily leadership devotional this past Friday, “Give Up”. Not so different from the modern-day privilege and pleasure castles we have been groomed and conditioned into today. Truth-be-told, Pharaoh would envy what we have attained. Amen? But Moses, called by God, gave it all up for forty years of exile in the desert. Maxwell goes on, “By then, Moses had undergone the breaking and remaking process required for him to be used by God.”

The righteous is a guide to his neighbor, But the way of the wicked leads them astray. ~ Proverb 12:26

God compelled me in an iron sharpens iron moment this past week to challenge the leader of my men’s Bible study group and the men themselves. He had asked us to come back the following week with examples of how God was working in our lives, and I turned the tables by posing the question, “How are we working in God’s life?”

But when I saw they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, “If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews?” ~ Galatians 2:14

THINK…what must it have taken for freshman Paul to challenge the well-seasoned senior Peter right there in front of all the troops! Who did he think he was? Who do we think we are…in this season where Lieutenant Colonels are challenging their Generals who’ve violated their oaths, as the sheep are challenging their shepherds for violating theirs? By the way, I am in no way comparing Peter, who went to the cross for Christ, to generals and pastors who have led and are leading their troops and flocks to slaughter.

If you are slack in the day of distress, your strength is limited. Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, oh hold them back. If you say, “See, we did not know this,” does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work? ~ Proverb 24:10-12

“Slack…in the day of distress.” Hello! Those six words are the very reason Eric Metaxas wrote his Letter to the American Church! This week God gave me this insightful juxtaposition that goes to the very heart of the problem in the majority of American churches today:

Laurie shared this beautiful expression of grandmother love (Chesed) on the virtue of quietly waiting…

Doc shared this equally beautiful expression of cowboy love (Gevurah) on the necessity of taking of the blinders and getting in the fight (cowboy/sailor language alert)…

And my exchange with Laurie: Lovely Laurie…I was taught long ago the powerful spiritual tool of “holding opposites.” It made David a great King. Because he had both the heart expressed in your video, as well as the love expressed in a slightly different way by this rancher…French Alert! ~ Chip

Chip, awesome opposites.  We should be the farmer on the outside – forward the world and the grandma on the inside secure in the faith that Jesus will take us home at exactly the right moment. ~ Laurie

The enemy, as is it’s vampiric nature to do, has drained by the very infiltration Jude warned us of, the Gevurah blood energy…the masculine strength out of the church. It’s the hyper grace problem Pastor Earl speaks of when calling out the half gospel, hyper grace church. It’s the same problem that prompted Doc in this same week to ask, “Where are the men?” Answer: They are quietly waiting…

God loves Proverb 16:11 balance and scales in men…its why David was the man after His own heart. On the other hand, we know that He despises imbalance and the cowardly. Metaxas wrote about the “where are the men” church in Germany 84 years ago, inviting the death of millions by quietly waiting.

God’s third message to me this week is that we, remnant though we may be, are called to be the guides in this hour…through the valley…

A Psalm (Heart) & Proverb (Wisdom) a Day Drives the Tyrant Away! PS 23:3 He restores my soul;

He guides me in the paths of righteousness

For His name’s sake.

PR 13:8 The ransom of a man’s life is his wealth,

But the poor hears no rebuke.

God made us as men to be balanced in love and strength. It gives us both courage and confidence in battle. The hyper-grace imbalance gives us fear. Out of fear we tell ourselves many lies while we wait quietly for that “something big that’s about to happen.” Fear is the greatest killer of all. And the great irony, as God sees everything, fear decays the inner man!

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:16–5:1

Give it up while you are able brothers. The time to break the old and remake the new is at hand.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ 5th Generation Warfare & Restoring Truth

My people perish for lack of knowledge. ~ Hosea 4:6

Fifth-generation warfare is conducted primarily through non-kinetic military action, such as social engineering, misinformation, cyberattacks, along with emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and fully autonomous systems. Fifth generation warfare has been described by Daniel Abbot as a war of “information and perception”. ~ Wikipedia

“Truth becomes pluralized, trust is degraded and with it goes the morals and values of a nation.” ~ Scott Kesterson

Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. “Be angry, and do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. ~ Ephesians 4:25-32

A Psalm (Heart) & Proverb (Wisdom) a Day Drives the Tyrant Away! PS 17:3 You have tried my heart;

You have visited me by night;

You have tested me and you find nothing;

I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.

PR 7:8 Passing through the street to her corner;

And he takes the way to her house,

NOTE: Brothers and sisters, I encourage you this morning to read PS 17 & PR 7 in their entirety as God sends us a clear “apple of the eye” message in this fog of 5th generation warfare. Lean in to Him now as never before!

…as the following appears in my gmail inbox, “Should biological men be allowed to compete in women’s sports?” And, “Intercourse vs Treadmill?”…

Pastor Bill of the New York Faith & Freedom Coalition, whose “Restore Truth in 2023” message was embedded in last Sunday’s Tune-up, is calling God’s people to something God’s people have not been very good at for quite some time. Seeking truth, last year’s calling, was the easy part for objective-minded folks with access to the internet. Restoring it is quite another matter, requiring two additional qualities lacking in God’s people; faith and courage. Faith, of all things, the central figure in The Monument to the Forefathers pictured above. Pastor Bill played the movie embedded in the link to a roomful of Christian patriots last night. The two major takeaways? Most, myself included, were unaware of the monument’s existence. And only one person in the room besides myself knew about 5th Generation Warfare!

Question: How in the world do a people who have no idea who they are, where they come from, or the nature of the war they are in the middle of, restore truth? Answer: God!

Watching Holy Spirit move in people, connecting people, opening their hearts and then their eyes is a remarkably uplifting and empowering thing. In this week’s prayer and fast invite, the question “Are you glued to the world?” was raised…along with the warning, “Laying low and taking ourselves off the ‘political’ field while God is calling us to RISE is WGD (World Glue Death)! In a group that has been extremely low-lying and completely off the political field, a retired NYC cop, introduced to this group by Holy Spirit, gave a remarkable witness to the power of the Holy Spirit this past Friday. He shared how his family had been under intense attack from the enemy, and how it nearly killed his daughter through anorexia…down to 57lbs, until they connected with modern prophet Amanda Grace by helping her rescue a horse. While visiting with the family at their Orange County home, the daughter invited Amanda upstairs to her bedroom, where the father, after hearing a commotion, eventually encountered a healed daughter after Amanda had cast out 12 separate demonic spirits. True story!

The very same Holy Spirit showing YOU exactly who and where YOU are in the Psalm 17, Proverb 7 message above. Right smack dab in the middle between God and the enemy; the Proverb 7 “Harlot”…the Whore of Babylon…our own government! Which brings us to courage.

SW Brother, Founder of the School of Doc, LTC (Ret.) Pete Chambers…on the wall!

“There is certainly nothing more strongly marked in the precepts and examples of Christ than the principles of stubborn and inflexible resistance against the impulses of others to evil.” ~ John Quincy Adams in a letter to his son, George Washington Adams, Founders’ Bible

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Chaos, Risk, & Brushfires, Oh My!

The gay couple charged with molesting and trafficking their adopted 9 and 11-yr-old sons

My new favorite writer…“Life is a war. Sometimes we win our battles, sometimes we don’t. We fight against the world to keep the faith, to hold families together, to pay bills, and to keep vehicles running. Often it seems that the war of a man’s life is simply an unending fight against entropy, Chaos, and decay. Especially if one drives an older vehicle.

Trying to start a homestead is another battle against entropy. God commanded Noah to take dominion over the Earth and commanded Adam in a similar fashion. Taking dominion means imposing order on the chaos, putting things into their proper place. The first acts of the Creation were acts of imposing order. Light was created, then separated from darkness. Sky, Earth, and Water were then separated from each other.” ~ J.Pilgrim

Where to begin? Genesis is as good a place as any. John, who introduces Jesus as the Genesis Light, says in 1:5. “The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” The very Light that was prophesied nearly 400 times in the Old Testament was rejected in the New, and He was hung on a tree for the sins of every man, woman, and child…past, present, and future. For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16 That, my brothers and sisters, is a love too deep to fathom! Yet, how many of us are poised, many not realizing, to reject Him again? The father of all lies, and creator of chaos and decay, has done a remarkable job keeping so many in the darkness, stuck like glue in the ways of the flesh.

As J.Pilgrim states in his opening salvo, Life is a war. And, as someone once wrote, Life is a many splendored thing as well. God designed us, unlike every other living creature, with free will…the power to choose light or dark, chaos or order. There is a great deal in the Tune-up this morning from both sides of the fence. But the  Opening Story of the gay couple pictured above who adopted two young boys from a Christian agency for the purpose of molesting them and sex-trafficking them is by far the most horrific story I have ever read in this, the 70th year of my life. I need to be clear…this is not an attack on gays, I have family and friends who live this lifestyle who are good and loving people living their lives by the dictates of their own conscience and free will. I believe they represent the majority of the gay community, just as the majority of the Muslim community are not represented by the Jihadists who choose the darker path. But the very same father of all lies, creator of chaos uses the militant minorities in both communities to hold the entire world hostage, so he can hunt those of us who by our own conscience and free will, have chosen the Light of true liberty and freedom. That brings us to risk in a dangerous world.  

George Orwell wrote, “Truth becomes treason in the empire of lies.” I highly encourage to listen to Scott Kesterson’s BardsFM podcast from Friday night, Orwellian Nation

“Evil never becomes good, and wrong never becomes right, just because the majority believe it to be so.” ~ Booker T. Washington

Just as mold seeks the darkness, evil thrives on chaos, darkness, and decay…which is precisely why Jesus calls us in Matthew 5:13-16 to be the salt and the light. A study of the Book of Acts gives us a clear picture of the risk taken by the First Century Disciples to be the salt and light in their day. Not so long ago our news-media was the salt and light to a free nation…now they are the agents of darkness, turning our attention and $BILLIONS away from the invasion of our own country to push us into a war with Russia…Like a leaky pipe that can cause a whole house to flood, our leaky border affects every state in our nation as the drugs, human-trafficking victims, and criminal elements fan out over the country. The Satanic Roots of the Border Crisis

Perhaps the biggest story of all is what is now being framed in ever-growing circles as the greatest crime against humanity since the dawn of time itself. The mass genocide and depopulation wrought by the WEF and WHO elites behind the Great Reset designed to bring the entire population of the world under the thumb and total control of a One World Order.

BREAKING NEWS: 17,000 Physicians and Scientists declare that Pfizer, Moderna, BioNTech, Janssen, Astra Zeneca, and their enablers, withheld and willfully omitted safety information from patients and physicians which led to toxic death and should be immediately indicted for fraud. https://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/17000-physicians-and-scientists-declare-that-the-state-of-medical-emergency-must-be-lifted-and-scientific-integrity-restored

Utah doctor indicted by the state for protecting and saving children… Utah Doctor Charged For Saving Lives

Come to think of it, Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer was executed for braking the law to save the world 79 years ago! Saving the world from the dark JUST before the dawn is risky business. Just ask best-selling author Eric Metaxas who had to write his Letter to the American Church just two years after writing Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy because too many pastors seem to have gotten comfortable hanging with the mold in the darkness and decay. FEAR

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” ~ Plato

Salt & Light from our modern-day Bonhoeffers:

The “No Politics” mantra coming from a solid majority of church pulpits, translated, means, “We do not want to know what is happening outside these walls that would compel us, for our own conscience’s sake, to take action which would put our jobs, our possessions, and our lives at risk.”

Ha…nearly forgot the brushfire!

“It does not take a majority to prevail … but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” ~ Samuel Adams

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ In That Day…When Fools Rush In

In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:

“We have a strong city; God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks. Open the gates, That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in. You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.” ~ Isaiah 26:1-4

Trust in the Lord means we trust in His promises…

To possess the promises will require a fresh consecration, the courage to cross over, the will to enter in and fight, obedience to His voice, as He empowers them to dispossess those stronger than they are. ~ Founders’ Bible

He empowers those who are willing to enter in and fight. “Enter in” doesn’t mean to blindly comply with satanic forces that want to take away our God-given rights, tear apart families, pervert and destroy our children, by entering into their top down, centrally controlled beast system.

That day has become this day. We are in the fight of our lives to reclaim what has been stolen from every single American, whether all of us are aware of it, or not. We have a choice to make. Please allow me to assume that most Americans, after witnessing the clown show formally known as the “Biden Administration,” will choose the promise of God over the lies of those who’ve hijacked our country. And, in order to possess His promise, we need a 2 Chronicles 7:14 heart of sincere repentance to achieve the required fresh consecration.

So, what keeps us from our rightful possession, besides repentance, willingness to enter in, obedience, and trust? Fear for the many who have lost their faith. Sadly, this is especially true for those in the Faith Community! Woe to him who claims the Christian title, while admonishing Ezekiel’s watchman, disowning his own heritage, and ignoring the voice of the prophets, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the will of the Father.

“Washington believed that if anyone, especially the ‘mere politician,’ worked to undermine religion and morality in the nation, he could not be called a patriot.” ~ Founders’ Bible
Brothers, I believe that if anyone, especially in the “American Church” works to undermine patriotism in this nation, he cannot be called a Christian.

But even if our gospel is veiled , it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them…But we who have this treasure…We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—2 Corinthians 4:3-4,8-9

The gospel can only be veiled in a half-gospel, hyper-grace church. Or, as Bonhoeffer referred to it as the church of “cheap grace”. I cannot imagine a deeper, more penetrating wound to the heart of Christ when I think of the price He paid.

This past Wednesday morning as I was listening to Fishers of Men from the night before, I grew very concerned for my brothers Keith, Derek, and Al in California after hearing about the deluge of torrential rains falling upon them in California. So, I texted them, and in the middle of the text Scott plays this clip from a modern prophet who goes by the name of Joseph Z:

“Now here’s what I want to say about justice, because people have cried out for it, but it’s been mercy that’s held it back…because as justice is beginning to be unleashed, just by sowing and reaping. There’s going to be a rain that falls on the just…and unjust. But here’s the word of the Lord, ‘When the rain falls, you will outrun your enemy in the rain.’ That’s what I see coming.” ~ Joseph Z #GodIsGood!

A Psalm (Heart) & Proverb (Wisdom) a Day Drives the Tyrant Away! PS 5:3 In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. PR 26:7 Like the legs which are useless to the lame, So is a proverb in the mouth of fools.

Sorry if this comes across as cruel or offensive but you will have to take it up with God because Proverbs 26:7 cued the following perfectly. Meet Patricia Atkinson: An electric vehicle owner from rural Alaska found out that owning an EV is less than ideal when she was told it would take four years for her to get a replacement battery pack for her Chevy Bolt. The Con of All Cons!

How did America go from home of the brave…a land of free independent and critical thinkers, to a herd of electric hybrid car owners, obediently wearing masks, voluntarily pumping gene-modifying mRNA injections and boosters into their bodies and the bodies of their children, while dragging them to Drag Queen Story Hours, trans-gendering them, and hating on Trump and loving Zelensky? In other words, how did America, founded by the wisest most moral men to ever build one nation under God, become a nation run by and filled with Proverbs 26:7 fools? Hillsdale College has just come out with a course to answer that very question!

This transformation has brought ideas like transgenderism, identity politics, and global government—which were formerly relegated to the fringes of academia—into the mainstream of American public life. The result of this turn can be seen in the radical gender ideology pushed in our nation’s classrooms, the lawlessness at our border and in many of our cities, and the economic policies that continue to hollow out the American middle class.The American Left: From Liberalism to Despotism

The author and finisher of the American Left is none other than Satan himself…the very same deceiver who managed to infiltrate the church (Jude 1:12) to label and forbid Truth as political, while extolling Social Justice as gospel truth and virtue. I would ask the same group of my brothers who called all men to step up and reclaim their leadership roles in their families, their churches, and their communities back in November, and now declaring “politics” out of bounds in January, how many of their families, churches, and communities are considered in bounds, fair game, and targets in the arena of “politics”? If ALL life were a pizza pie, which slice is politically affected, controlled, and influenced? Every single one. Amen? If Jesus Himself had stayed out of the political discourse of His day, there would have been no need to crucify Him. I chose not to question the “no politics” rule out of respect for the host, whom I love as a brother in Christ. But as iron sharpens Proverbs 27:17 iron, I am compelled to ask respectfully for the scriptural basis for such a rule. It will take a John 17:21 revival and renewal in the church that recognizes, complies with, and bows to only one authority above all others, to purge the Proverbs 26:7 foolishness from ALL seven cultural mountains that the former church has surrendered to the enemy. Are we ready? I believe God is waiting on us…

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. ~ Ephesians 2:1-10      

Are we ready to possess His promises? Are we Joshua-ready to occupy and expand His Kingdom here?

“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” ~ Joshua 24:15

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Turning Point Déjà vu!

But when the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and began contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were blaspheming. Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles. “For so the Lord has commanded us, ‘I have placed You as a light for the Gentiles, That You may bring salvation to the end of the earth.’” ~ Acts 13:45-47

Acts 13 is a major turning point, if not THE turning point for we Gentiles in the Bible. Well dear friends, brace yourselves for what Yogi would have called a Déjà vu all over again moment converging Jeramiah, the First Century Disciples, American Patriots, the Modern Church, Narnia Snow, with the Superbowl! 

The part of the Jews who would not receive in Acts 13 is being acted out by the Christians who will not receive today. Thus sayeth the Lord, “Behold the turning point ye foolish ones, so closed inside your huddles. You who did not know your season will not miss the light…until it is gone.” The Holy Spirit directed Paul and Barnabas to shift their attention away from the Jews to the Gentiles. Think of a child who uses a tantrum to control its mother up until the point the mother realizes the grip and ignores the child.

Friday night I watched the movie Jeramiah starring Patrick Dempsey as Jeremiah. I have to tell you I could solidly relate to Jeremiah’s awakening to his calling…being called away from the things of the world by a voice outside the world. Giving up the things you held dear because you know and trust the source of His voice, and you now see how the pattern of your entire life has led you to your purpose. He sees my brothers and sisters in the church communities struck by the very same deaf, dumb, and blindness to the will of God that afflicted the King, his generals, and the people of Jerusalem. Their slumber will lead them to a far greater tragedy than a temporary holiday in Babylon. He sees his brothers and sisters in the patriot communities working out their plans to organize a resistance to the globalist plan to lure us all into their digital-AI prison. That’s the good news. The bad news is they’ve accounted for every stakeholder group, save one…they’ve left the Faith Community out of their plan. So…if we can take God at His word, here we are in both camps in our struggle that is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places…oblivious to the supernatural hand reaching out to us, leaving us spiritually disarmed. The greatest sermon in the world will not save us in such a state as this.

So, Saturday morning I wake up to a message from a friend regarding an event being promoted by a local community we will simply refer to as the modern-day equivalent of the Acts 13 Gentiles. That was the déjà vu trigger to our modern-day turning point…

The day before I found myself speaking with a freedom-fighter friend in what we both perceived to be a God-ordered encounter because of the fact that a mutual friend had suggested we should encounter each other only hours before the encounter

…so, it was no surprise to me when this friend expressed what I’ve observed to be a growing sentiment within the Christian circles. More and more of us are waking up in what has been described in these Tune-ups as “Half-Gospel/Hyper-Grace” churches (a term coined by my friend and brother in Christ, Pastor Earl Wallace), and it’s creating a moral dilemma in their hearts. “Oh, but my good friend (so & so) has asked me not leave.” Or, “But I love Pastor (so & so).  To which I reply with scripture, “And it was reported to Him, ‘Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside wishing to see You.’ But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.’” ~ Luke 8:20-21

And yesterday morning I finally get to watch a ten-minute video Pastor Earl sent linking Jeremiah to the Narnian Snow.

Pastor introduced Narnian Snow with the following, “Here’s a blog for the well-versed Christian who thinks with a renewed mind.”

Observing both camps, Christian and patriot, I’m left to wonder who thinks at all…

…which brings us to the Superbowl looming just around the corner, as I have more than often wondered what it will take to get men’s attention away from fantasy football world and back into the REAL game? Well, don’t look now, but a giant pink elephant just landed on the 50-yard line days before the biggest day of the year for the NFL! Owen Interview With Tom Renz

Imagine the shift…if we are able to get men and pastors back onto the field and into the REAL game!

I used to agree with Reagan’s most dangerous words in the English language, I’m from the government and I’m here to help axiom, being THE most dangerous. That is until I heard a pastor say these are different times, implying somehow that God’s views on sin have evolved since the 1st Century Disciples braved most treacherous waters to spread the Gospel.

The mindset needed…LTC Pete Chambers

Who Among us?

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ It Is Up To We In ’23

“Faithful & True”

Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war…And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses…And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords. ~ Revelation 19:11, 14-16

Eerie footage out of Washington, D.C. foreshadows what is soon coming to all of America: a social credit system that will require shoppers to scan their QR code to shop for goods… Revelation 13:16,17

They will pass through it hard-pressed and hungry, and it shall happen, when they are hungry, that they will be enraged and curse their king and their God, and look upward. Then they will look to the earth, and see trouble and darkness, gloom of anguish, and they will be driven into darkness. ~ Isaiah 8:21,22

We two have paddled in the stream,
From morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
Since long, long ago. ~ Auld Lang Syne

Now just who do we suppose would want old acquaintances to be forgot and never brought to mind?

Welcome to the very first day of the new year. As John C. Maxwell writes, “Anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course.” Our country, just as ancient Israel, has experienced good leaders and bad leaders, but never in the course of 240+ years have we been so misled. In fact, I challenge anyone to identify the leader, and explain the course he or she has charted for us, because nobody I’ve talked to has the foggiest idea of where we are going…which seems awfully strange for a Constitutional Republic of the people, by the people, and for the people, no?  

So dear brothers and sisters, please allow me to humbly offer our New Years Resolution:

1) Find out who misled you and why.

2) Turn off the Tell-a-Vision.

3) Build local community of like-minded patriots. www.orangestrongny.com County by County! https://bardsfm.com/county-by-county/

4) Hold your pastor’s feet to the fire. Ask him to sign https://acts529.com/ If he won’t, find another church or home church. Draw James 4:8 nearer to God, and He will draw nearer to you.

5) Take your children out of the public education system today!

6) Bring your gift into the streets and public square. Be His salt & light.

7) Love your neighbors and your enemies. Fear no evil! “I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places straight. These things I will do for them.” ~ Isaiah 42:16

Re: #4 ~ I myself had to seek “another church” and God blessed me greatly! “While every new year and day for us should be gratefully and soberly received as a gift from our Heavenly Father, I am convinced that 2023, in the light of clear prophetic events, calls us to a most serious and unavoidable spiritual resolve, as the followers of Christ! Personally and corporately, we as His redeemed people must make sure to come out of any spiritual “wilderness” that may have somehow entrapped or engulfed us!  While the days are certainly evil, God has “land” for us to conquer and to possess for His kingdom and glory!  As Joshua was preparing Israel, to lead her out of the wilderness and into Canaan land, he said to the people, “Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you” (Joshua 3:5)!  This means that they were to unreservedly separate themselves unto the LORD, and apart from everything that characterized their wilderness experience, leaving it all behind – all sin, rebellion, disobedience, idolatry, unbelief, and faithlessness wandering!  They absolutely could not remain in the wilderness, and at the same time enter into God’s promised place of rest, possession, blessing and of victory over their enemies!  Anyone who chooses to remain in some wilderness of sin, of moral compromise, or of perpetual indecision for Christ, will eventually die there!  Any church that compromises the true Gospel, or embraces the deceptions and lies of today’s cultural alterations of moral truth, will find “Ichabod” written over its entrance and altar, for “the glory has departed”!” Pastor Steve Offringa, Howells Church

Just as our Lord came into human history from outside, so He must come into me from outside. Have I allowed my personal human life to become a “Bethlehem” for the Son of God? … “You must be born again.” This is not a command, it is a foundation fact. ~ Oswald Chambers, His Birth and Our New Birth

If you acknowledge that Jesus is the Son of God, repent of your sins, ask forgiveness, and invite Jesus into your heart, you will be saved, and He will become your Lord of lords. And you will join Him, the ultimate leader, in eternity. ~ John C. Maxwell, Take Me to Your Leader

Keep your head up and your eyes forward. Never bow to evil, never relent. Always press into the fight. God is with us, He’ll never forsake us. And in the end, God always wins. So, we are here in this time and in this place for just such a time as this. We’re at war so walk boldly and fearlessly with Christ. Occupy the land, expand the kingdom, subdue the enemy, mission forward. ~ Scott Kesterson

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Peace & Joy

Called by God to lift them up!

The doctrine of substitution is twofold. Not only is Jesus Christ identified with my sin, but I am identified with Him so that His ruling disposition is in me, and the moral transaction on my part is agreement with God’s verdict on sin in the Cross of Jesus Christ. Redemption means that God through Jesus Christ can take the most miserable wreck and turn him into a son of God. ~ Oswald Chambers, Regeneration

Today is the day the heart of tyranny feared more than any other day since creation. All one need do is look at what Herod did to try to prevent the John 1:5 Light from entering into our world. So why would a tyrannical king fear it so? Simple…tyranny requires fear in a man’s heart to rule him. Fear cannot co-exist with Peace & Joy in the heart of man, and there is only one King who brings this Peace & Joy. As Pastor Rick Fry shares in his Christmas Eve message last night, in every other religion man works his way to their idea of God. Ours is the only religion where God worked His way supernaturally to man to supernaturally do what man could never do on his own.  

Speaking of the supernatural, Pastor Rick’s unusual but timely and prophetic Christmas Eve message (21:45min mark) to my brother Keith’s church known as the Rock in California last night shed real light on some of the struggles I’m seeing in my own church and patriot communities here in New York. He points out that the odds of one person fulfilling just 48 prophesies made about him is 10 to the power of 157. That’s a 1 with 157 0’s after it. Scholars say Jesus fulfilled every prophesy (350-400) in the Old Testament which spans somewhere close to 4,000 years. Pastor Rick Fry’s Christmas Eve Message

Can there be a greater gift to the human heart than the gift of Peace & Joy? WAY above the very popular and nearly always re-gifted fruitcake. Amen? God did not choose a king to deliver the good news down to His people, He chose the lowly shepherds to lift them up. Think of the dark times they were living in under the oppressive thumb of Roman rule. There is a fear of man, and there is a fear of God…which tends to get twisted by the enemies of God.

We’ve already discussed how Satan, through puppet kings uses fear to gain and maintain control over the hearts and minds of men…

Fear of GodI am not afraid of the Abba Father who loves me beyond my comprehension. I am afraid of being discovered outside the boundaries God has set for me. This life is the womb of our eternal calling Belief is a function of having faith, and faith is a matter of having trust. such amazing wisdom from Pastor Brad Cummings.

So, what I am seeing in my own church and patriot communities is a predisposition, away from the supernatural to the natural fear of man which fulfills the will of tyrants and perpetuates our pain and suffering in this world. I see lost pastors looking to “33 Ways To Build A Mega-Church” books when they already have 66 books in the Bible that gives them EVERTHING they need to grow their churches. Peace & Joy does not come from earthly kings or gimmicky shepherds. It comes from belief beget by faith beget by trust in the one true God.  

“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love…does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;…bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.” That is Christian living in actual life. ~ Oswald Chambers, Direction of Divine Living

Wishing ALL my brothers and sisters a most genuinely peaceful, joyful, Merry Christmas. May we all accept His greatest gift into our hearts to fill our minds with the wisdom and discernment to guide us and our loved ones through the days ahead. Amen.

Discernment goes deeper than knowledge, resembling intuition. At times, discernment is a gift; at other times it results from much experience. Discernment brings a profound perception of what is occurring, either on the outside or the inside of a person. ~ John C. Maxwell, A Leader of Discernment

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Don’t Take The Bait!

If I have walked with falsehood, Or if my foot has hastened to deceit, Let me be weighed on honest scales, That God may know my integrity. If my step has turned from the way, Or my heart walked after my eyes, Or if any spot adheres to my hands, Then let me sow, and another eat; Yes, let my harvest be rooted out. ~ Job 31:5-8

THIS, brothers and sisters…as God through Chambers leads me from Job to Ecclesiastes…is the insanity, we by our own free will, have made of our world. As the Communists in California are loosing 7,000 pedophiles onto the population…

“Statistics clearly show that pedophiles don’t get reformed. They’re going to come out and they’re going to commit again,” former Los Angeles sex crimes prosecutor Samuel Dordulian told the Daily Mail. California Releases Thousands of Pedophiles Less Than a Year After Conviction

…While the Communists in New York (We the People Warwick) offer “Mental Health Forums” to prevent the suicides in young adults that have tripled since the 1950’s, when they took over every cultural institution in America! The classic modern-day Little Red Riding Hood, if ever there were one. “My, What Big Teeth You Have!”

…while the churchmen cower in silence, for fear of offending the wolf.

TRUTH is a very hard pill to swallow. Especially when we apply it to ourselves. The TRUTH about Communism is that it is the nefarious Pied Piper of Hamlin leading the children, our children away from God, and their ONLY hope of salvation. The TRUTH about us churchmen, is that WE are allowing it! Thus sayeth the Lord, “Pastors, with precious few exceptions; its time for you to OWN it, Repent and Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way!” These are not my words, and even if they were, you are not being called out from a beach in Bermuda or a golf course in Myrtle Beach. No sir, this warning is coming at you from the frontline of a culture war, a war we are losing because you yourself told me, “It’s not my war.” When will it become your war Pastor, when they come for your granddaughter? We ALL need to be in it to win it! How, you ask? I’m glad you asked.

TRUTH is the beautiful sister in love with the Light, do you remember? We introduced her a few weeks ago along with her sister Jealousy, who was always trying to steer her away from the Light so she could get the attention. So, behold what the Communists have managed to do in 75 years. In the 50’s we were the young boys who overcame our fears, asked TRUTH to dance, defended Her honor, drove Her home after the dance, and eventually married Her. Today? TRUTH is the only one who has not changed in the slightest, She hasn’t aged a day. She is as beautiful today as she has always been and always will be. Jealousy became a murderous wolf on the prowl for TRUTH, her children, and all who dare to come near her. Men? We took the Communist bait, hook, line, and sinker. Most of the young men, too fearful and lazy to even show up to the dance, settled for the easiest date of all on their smart phones, while those of us who did, abandoned her at the very first sign of the wolf.

THIS is the TRUTH:

It does not matter what a man’s heredity is, or what tendencies there are in him; on the basis of the Redemption he can become all that God’s Book indicates he should be. ~ Oswald Chambers, Keeping Clean

Notice Chambers does not say he will become, he says man can become all that God’s Book indicates he should be. How? By taking another hit of hopium on the sidelines as another child is led away from God, forced to modify their DNA with an injection, sex-trafficked, or takes their own life because we gave them a world that has become impossible to live freely in?

Nietzsche declares that the basis of things is tragic, and that the way out is by the merciless superman: the Bible reveals that the basis of things is tragic, and that the way out is by redemption. We say that man is in process of evolution—a magnificent promise of what he is going to be. The wisdom of Hebrews looks at history and attainments and says—What a magnificent ruin of what he was created to be. ~ Oswald Chambers, The Way Out of Tragedy

My praise team brother Dave gave us a great word yesterday; Cleave. Our only way out will be found by those of us who cleave to the Truth. Period.

“When Tyranny Becomes Law, Rebellion Becomes Biblical.” ~ Pastor Greg Locke

“And where are the voices demanding restoration of truth and decency? Where are the pulpits ‘ablaze with glory’calling out the sins of our leaders? Where is the clergy, the guardians of truth?” ~ Pastor Bill Banuchi, Sodom & Gomorrah

“For two years now we have been witnessing a global coup d’état, in which a financial and ideological elite has succeeded in seizing control of part of national governments, public and private institutions, the media, the judiciary, politicians and religious leaders.” ~ Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Appeal For An Anti-Globalist Alliance.

This brings us to a fish or cut bait moment of sorts. I shared a fascinating 2-part interview a week or so ago, that paired Einstein with “Material Girl” Madonna. If you listened, I encourage you to listen again. If you missed it, I’ve included both parts below. Many if not most Christians understand that because the first Adam took the bait, God sent a second Adam, Jesus, who did not. The same enemy that baited Adam’s hook used Einstein to bait the world…PLEASE, don’t take the bait!

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Tenderly Calling

Home, Come on Home. Ye who are weary come Home…

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things to put to shame the things which are mighty; ~ 1 Corinthians 1:26-27

God has blessed me to sing on a praise team in my church. I’ve played guitar and sang most of my life. Songwriting, I now realize since my James 4:8 moment seven years ago, was one of the ways I learned to listen to God. And while singing and playing to audiences of people is great, singing to Him and helping to spark the praise spirit simply cannot be topped. That, and being blessed to be part of a church family pastored by an uncompromising shepherd who is 100% ALL-in with the Word, the whole Word, and nothing but the Word of God.

This week He put on my heart a song that I believe was written by John Denver, I had previously been unaware of. But it spoke to me in a profound way because of what so many people are going through right now. From losing our parents in nursing homes over the past two years, to losing life-long friends, and worse…our children in the culture war today. The song “Tenderly Calling” is linked HERE. We could stop the insanity in a New York minute! All we need to do is “come on home”…to Him. Think Prodigal Son.

But the 1 Corinthians passage above and its link to Tenderly Calling goes much deeper. For you see your callingMen….He is speaking to us men in this hour. The following Scott Kesterson interview with Dr. Frank provides us with the truth about the corruption of our local, state, and federal election systems. Next up, Tucker Carlson exposes the corruption in Washington, DC as it relates to Ukraine…with George W. Bush comparing President Zelensky to George Washington. And finally, in my favorite what’s-going-on-in-the-world daily C&C, Jeff covers the refreshing and corruption-revealing fountain of truth flowing out of Twitter, “The only rational conclusion can be that the FBI is no longer a law-enforcement agency. It’s a political secret police force that covers for pedophiles.” ~ C&C News

Corruption, Corruption, Corruption! As Dr. Frank put it in his interview with Scott, “A mountain of corruption survives in a sea of incompetence.” And what is missing in such a slimy sea? Your integrity is one of the best friends your friends will ever have. ~ John C. Maxwell, Your Friends’ Best Friend

Or, to put it another way, when good men walk away fools rush in. Well brothers, God is calling us back to the table! The good news is that there are 15-20 pastors from the Liberty breakfast yesterday hearing Him loud and clear! Only the Holy Spirit can open hearts that have been closed for so long…

My morning Oswald Chambers read has had me in the Book of Job all week…

It is dangerous to be conscious of submission to a spiritual power. The difference between fatalism and faith lies just here. Fatalism means, “My number’s up; I have to bow to the power whether I like it or not; I do not know the character of the power, but it is greater than I am, and I must submit.” The submission of faith is that I do know the character of the Power, and this was the line that Job took: “Though He slay me, yet I will trust the fact that His character is worthy.” ~ Oswald Chambers, The Worthiness of God

If it is to be, it is up to we…led by He. Amen?

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. ~ 1 Corinthians 3:6

Don’t be afraid of the darkness, don’t run away from the storm. Stand up and face your reflection, and feelings you try to ignore. ‘Cause after the tempest is over, and you let yourself go on through. You’ll hear a voice in the silence, and its tenderly calling to you… Tenderly Calling

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Renewing Our Minds…

…for their sake.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. ~ Romans 12:2

Re-new-al ~ an instance of resuming an activity or state after an interruption.

Never has there been, and never will there be an interruption like the interruption we ALL experienced over two-thousand years ago. The very birth of that interruption we, as Christians, will celebrate once again twenty-one days from today. It is well beyond fascinating to me that the chapter following the Romans 12 quote above has been used and abused by the enemy to trick more than a few of my fellow Christians into being conformed to this world, and those tyrants who seek nothing less than being the only gods we’ll all be forced to conform to.

God’s grace built a non-conforming spirit into this particular model when He rolled me off the assembly line in 1953. It made for a very rough ride through turbulent times of hurts and pains, bumps and bruises, separations and disjointments, finally to arrive at a place of total and complete understanding of why it ALL had to be. He broke me into pieces and put me back together again on a Wyoming mountaintop in 2015.

Most everyone I know, Christian and unbeliever alike, have all conformed to the world. Which is to say, we all believe what the world would have us believe…on the right and the left. We don’t stop to realize that the enemy needs both right and left to succeed. Why? Seeing each other as the enemy draws our focus from OUR real enemy. The enemy would never have been able to administer an experimental mRNA non-FDA-approved EUA injection to an all left world, or an all right world. NEVER…in a million years.

At this moment in time, and it’s a crazy one, I see two American people:

  • Tyrannical WHO Pandemic Treaty Moving Ahead, Biden Expected to Sign (This Will Overrule the Constitution & All Elected Officials)… “we’re doomed!!!”
  • The White Hat Cavalry bugle will sound any second now, we will all be rescued, and we will all live happily ever after. “trust the plan!!”

Actually, there is a third and fourth. Mario Murillo encountered the third in Batavia, New York. He called it a “reluctant army”. Pastor Earl calls it the half Gospel of hyper grace church. I call it the Batavian spirit of lukewarm capitulation. Pastor Earl writes, “they have not been focused on the tough mindedness necessary to teach the whole Word of God from the whole counsel of God.” In a recent interview with Lance Wallnau, a tough-minded Mario says, “Right now, I haven’t got time to go with a reluctant army.” Listen HERE. Interestingly, the third has completely sealed itself off from any connection to the world outside itself…as ALL “political”.

Which leaves the fourth, otherwise known as Remnant. Bards Nation would be a great example!

“The war in my mind is this Neo-Marxist take-over of America. It is a theological war disguised as a political war. And when something is disguised as political, pastors don’t know what to do with it… The Social Justice goal is TOTAL assimilation. Conform, convert, or die.” ~ Pastor Jon Benzinger, author of Stand: Christianity v Social Justice Listen HERE

The sponsor of Social Justice happens to also be the sponsor of SRA ~ Satanic Ritual Abuse that is destroying the lives and souls of children in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, in America and across the globe. That, my brothers and sisters, is what being conformed to this world has gotten us. The renewing of a mind conformed to the world sees men marrying men, more than two genders, and our children as prey. And, as Pastor Jon accurately points out, the rest of us must conform, convert, or die. Where do you stand? Where will you stand?

We must get hold of the great souls, the men who have been hard hit (Job, Paul) and have gone to the basis of things, and whose experiences have been preserved for us by God, that we may know where we stand. ~ Oswald Chambers, Seeking Faith’s Foundation

The beautiful child pictured above was 7-yr-old Athena Strand, kidnapped from her home in Boyd, Texas by FedEx delivery driver…found dead on Friday. WE can stop this. WE must!
