This quote in a comment section impressed me the other day…“They’ll make it illegal to grow food. To catch rainwater. To leave the city. To live in a shack. To refuse an injection. To settle down in the middle of nowhere where there’s not a soul for miles. That’s the point at which you’ve got to ask: Am I going to go down without a fight?” This is actually happening.
And this from the “we are divided” Prayer & Fast Wednesday invitation, “I am not judged by the light I have, but by the light I have refused to accept. (Shad. Agony)” brings us to the most important reckoning in the history of our nation.
There are two different shepherds at this fork in the road of our lives. The true shepherd sounds the alarm by alerting the Children of Light to what is actually happening, as Archbishop Vigano who first called out the spirit of the false shepherd in Francis and, more recently, the same false spirit in Rev. Gini Gerbasi, did so eloquently in this letter to our President. It is the same light acknowledged by only 1 in 136 of our shepherds here in Orange County, “Dear Brother Paul – Greetings to you in the grace and peace of our victorious Savior & Lord Jesus Christ! This is to gratefully respond to your letter dated May 30, 2020 which is before me, and I do stand with you in Jesus’ Name. We as those who truly follow the Lord and His Word are challenged as never before, by sincere faith and humble obedience, to be as First-Century disciples! I look forward to speaking with you. Sincerely on the bonds of our Lord’s love and grace, Pastor (Faithful Steward) at (Fear Not Fellowship) Church. Psalm 27:1; Isaiah 41:10; Nahum 1:7; Hebrews 13:20-21.” The false shepherd delivers bible stories through the filter of social justice, intentionally avoiding the truth of what is actually happening, creating instead the Children of Darkness who learn to fight institutionally manufactured injustice with a greater injustice.
No movement will solve injustice that doesn’t have authority over the devil, because the devil is the author of injustice. That gives the church the unique role of being the only resistance. ~ Mario Murillo
A friend told me this week he was “in the battle…striving to keep my eyes on the King.”
That’s when it struck me like a thunderbolt….
But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. ~ 2 Corinthians 3:14-16
The line between God and His ecclesia is a nourishing, life-enhancing, and straight line of Truth. It simply is what it is.
The false shepherd has, through the filter of social justice, set up roadblocks, detours, and dead ends that has left the ecclesia weakened, depressed, and defenseless. The only thing more taxing, draining, and damaging to the human psyche than suppressing and oppressing Truth, is avoiding Truth.
And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. 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 8:19-22
I’m reminded of the great scene in Lawrence of Arabia where Mr. Dryden explains how Lawrence had head-faked himself. “If we’ve told lies, you’ve told half lies. And a man who lies, like me, merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half lies has forgotten where he’s put it.” And this is not film director David Lean’s first appearance in Shutupnsing. His Colonel Nicholson “What have I done?” moment in Bridge on The River Kwai is the pending fate of our modern shepherds that haunts me.
ACCEPT THE LIGHT OF TRUTH! Black Lives Matter is a Communist Organization. The 24,000 Black Lives Murdered NYC 2016 Matter! Truth Matters! Seek out the Truth-Tellers! Tune out the liars. Stand in the light! When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the Lord your God is with you, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. ~ Deuteronomy 201:1
“Alignment with heaven’s assignment brings a new confidence, new clarity and new authority.” ~ Lance Wallnau
1 in 136 needs to become 136 united for Him. Now is the time to leave the sinking fear-based church for the Fear Not Fellowship…for the love of God.
