The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ The Fork in the Road

God Bless His Sheepdogs On The Wall

Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of inequity? Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul would soon have settled in silence. ~ Psalm 94:16,17

“I’m gonna wake up every morning to lose what I must win, and find another way of livin’ that feels good within my skin, Gonna throw away the book of lies that brought me to this place, to see my self reflected in the timelessness of Grace.” I wrote these lyrics from my song New Earth ten years ago. It appears, in the prescient tense, I was feeling then what we are all living…or about to live now. We’ve all been shaken from our easy chair in the air, Titanic decks are getting wet from the icebergs of misery…no?

What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. Just as it is written:                                                          “God has given them a spirit of stupor,                                                                                       Eyes that they should not see                                                                                                        And ears that they should not hear,                                                                                                To this very day.” ~ Romans 11:7,8

After I released my Album “Wide Awake” in 2010, which included New Earth, everything changed. I lost family, friends, and clients as I, first musically, and then politically, began to embrace principles and values that those aligning themselves with a “new world order” found offensive and threatening. It was around this time that I discovered my inner sheepdog and a very strong calling to protect those principles and values we as Americans hold so dear. In 2012 this calling led me to join and eventually serve on the national board of Oath Keepers. That’s my friend John in the photo up top standing watch on the rooftop in Ferguson several years ago. We first met doing security at a free speech rally on Boston Commons of all places. Oath Keepers were there to protect the small businesses and shops from arsonists after the fuse lit by the very same Globalists who lit the Covid fuse today, exploded into riots and civil unrest.

I have noticed a very interesting trend and pattern occurring in the Deep State/Globalist attacks against our President and all of us as Americans. Similar to the principle of the martial art style of Aikido, God is turning the attacks of the wicked back against them. Even this Orwellian lock-down is giving us the opportunity to reassess, reexamine, and reevaluate our lives and relationships to one another, and to God Himself. I believe that history and future generations will mark this moment as the exact opposite of what the Globalists intended…the great awakening of the sleeping giant. But it will be for naught if we don’t identify our greatest mistake of all. Somewhere along the way we grew and became passive. We lost our “stout-hearted men” as my friend reminded me this morning in a song her father used to sing…

Give me some men who are stout-hearted men                                                      Who will fight for the right they adore                                                                      Start me with ten who are stout-hearted men                                                          And I’ll soon give you ten thousand more-ore                                                Shoulder to shoulder, and bolder and bolder                                                          They grow as they go to the fore                                                                                  Then there’s nothing in the world                                                                                  Can halt or mar a plan                                                                                                    When stout-hearted men                                                                                                    Can stick together – man – to man…

This is the Spirit that inspired our invitation to this past Wednesday’s Prayer & Fast. I feel the Spirit is bringing us the proverbial “fork in the road” my friends, as well as the end of “business as usual” on SO many levels. Praying for ALL of my fellow Americans. Please join us for tomorrow’s Prayer & Fast Wednesday with prayerful intention on Ecclesiastes 10:2

I have found an amazing kindred spirit in Scott Kesterson’s video series, The Bards of War; One has to first know and understand the enemy in order to defeat him. The Slings and Arrows Finally, I leave you with this moving letter I received from a fellow sheepdog in Connecticut.


You, Matt M and I met briefly at a Katie Hopkins talk a while back. A couple of us CTOK, including myself, were providing security. This attachment is vital.  I know I put it into the right hands with you for proper disbursement with the proper words. This attachment is powerful stuff. I look to Ephesians armor of God and the Book of Nehemiah for being a soldier of God and strategic offense/defense tactics respectively when wrestling with the evil in front of us. Especially relevant with this attachment is the overwhelming force of faith in our favor if we consider each gate of the city as a different faith here on earth, not just denominations of Christianity. Please read, pray, reflect, and get back to me.  I am more than happy to work with you on moving a project forward if you see merit in doing so. Example: If each of us could get copies into the hands our religious leaders, our local P.D.’s and the elected servants at all levels, preferably in person, I think it could have monumental results.  It would press them into thinking through faith first. God before government. 

If I may, after prayer and reflection I have the following thoughts, late bloomer that I am.  We should really be tackling everything in life with faith first, be it joys or concerns. Why, because it honors God and His will. The 10 Commandments are all about respect. Respect for God yes. But also respect for each person’s spirit. and if a person’s spirit is respected (nurtured, protected and given direction), then he or she has the best chance of meeting their full potential. And the best chance of gaining heaven.

The first couple of Commandments are about honoring God; direction and nurturing. The rest of them are about a respectful and responsible individual and society (all 3, direction, nurturing and protecting). The Constitution fully supports the 10 Commandments by doing the same thing.  Acknowledging individual rights as superior and sovereign to states’ rights (local society with its own flavor in our great nation). States’ rights sovereign and superior to federal rights. Each layer of govt supporting and defending individual rights; Thus, empowering the human spirit to reach its full potential. When first presented to the American people, it unleashed the power and creativity of the human spirit such that no nation has come farther and faster. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs supports both the Commandments and the Constitution. The spirit, and fully developing it, are at the core of each. And the battle of good and evil is about which side wins or influences the spirit the most. This, to me, says that the spirit is a Principality. The battle of the Principalities as spoken of in Ephesians. Honoring God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and the human spirit is righteous and vital. “To whom much is given, much is expected.” We have been blessed with faith, family, and country. And each needs us desperately right now. Thank you for your time,

    Chip, “Stout Hearted Men” along with “The Impossible Dream” have been songs that have driven my spirit for years.
