The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Discernment in the Sordid Actuality

The whole discipline of the life of faith is to mix together the light of heaven and the sordid actuality of earth. Contemplation and consideration must go together. We must take our plan for what we do on earth from the altitude of heaven; let contemplation of the stars be mixed with what we build on earth. ~ Oswald Chambers, A Star-Hitched Wagon

Oh, what a true blessing Oswald Chambers has been in my life! How he has so amplified the Word of God in my heart and fortified my faith. And how broken would his own heart be to see the sordid actuality that has overtaken the world of man. No man has taught me to see as has he. For example, I know that “contemplation and consideration must go together.” But I see that contemplation without wisdom, and consideration without discernment, are two trees without fruit. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Proverbs 1 describes wisdom as a woman crying out in the streets. What a beautiful picture! Wisdom does not hide herself, but shouts publicly! We must go out and find her and build a friendship with her…according to John C. Maxwell. And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment. ~ Philippians 1:9

Why then are so many of my fellow believers hiding in cones of silence? I know they are afraid, because I can see the enemy within…

This week’s Prayer & Fast Wednesday Invite:

There was a song I remember from better times about how one was a lonely number. Well, I believe that one needs to step aside. There’s a new lonely in town dear friends. One has officially been retired by the duo “Truth & Freedom”. HERE…in America.

While some of my brothers have already changed their mailing address to Babylon, others are getting their affairs in order knowing that Truth & Freedom are worth defending. In this spirit we are inviting you to join us for Prayer & Fast Wednesday tomorrow, with prayerful focus on Ecclesiastes 3:1-9, Luke 22:35-39, and Mathew 26:50-54. God Bless America!

“There is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.” It is God’s law that men cannot hide what they really are. If they are His disciples it will be publicly portrayed. In Matthew 10 Jesus warned His disciples of what would happen when they publicly testified, but, He said, “Don’t hide your light under a bushel for fear of wolfish men…” ~ Oswald Chambers, The Power of Publicity

The enemy attacked my P&FW invitation as “POISON”. Our military veteran friends would likely construe that as a positive indication of being over the target. Truth has become poison to some in our culture. What did Orwell tell us? Truth is treason in the empire of lies.

Look what they have done to us! General Mike Flynn’s attorney Sydney Powell explains how they did it in this interview with Lou Dobbs on Thursday. The great attorney who represented Nick Sandman and Richard Jewell, L. Lin Wood elaborates further on the Howie Carr Show, beginning at the 22min mark.

My friends…Former CIA Director John Brennan and former National Security John Clapper took the foreign surveillance system Hammer, and the electoral hacking program Scorecard, along with the voting system Dominion during the Obama Administration, turned it against the American people to steal Florida from Bernie Sanders in 2012, and the entire country from the American People in this 2020 election. I am personally connected to a friend who is working with Retired Airforce General Thomas McInerney who revealed the truth about Hammer and Scorecard earlier this year. I know the Special Operations veteran Craig “Sawman” Sawyer who founded Veterans For Child Rescue and what he has seen. I know…I see this monster and what it has planned.

Truth and Freedom. Wisdom and Discernment. America is about to wake up to how close it came to losing the first two because so many of us abandoned the second two. The fight is far from over. Luke 22:35-39 was paired with Matthew 26:50-54 to follow the Ecclesiastical wisdom of 3:1-9 for good reason. Matthew provides the purpose of Jesus. Luke confirms the need for the sword. And Ecclesiastes declares the time for war!

In this most critical and dangerous time for both the church and for America, we are facing great assault by the forces of spiritual darkness! The Scripture clearly tells us that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12)!  Energized by Satan himself who is “the prince of this world” (John 12:31) and “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2), these demonic forces are at work and manifest themselves in every area of human activity – religious, political, educational, social, economic, etc. They are the devil’s emissaries to do his work of deception and of destruction, “to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10).  Understanding, therefore, that the real battle is essentially spiritual in nature, the Scripture says that “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds…” (see 2 Corinthians 10:3-5)!  Dressed in “the whole armour of God” (see Ephesians 6:10ff), we are to personally and corporately confront the forces of darkness in the mighty Name of Jesus through prayer – filled with His Spirit, by pleading His precious blood, and by releasing the Word of God against the enemy in the authority of His mighty Name!  “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe” (Proverbs 18:10)!  This is spiritual warfare, not for a dead, lukewarm, indifferent and compromised church, but for a church that will say as David did before the Philistines and their Goliath, “Is there not a cause?” (1 Samuel 17:29)!  Satan has targeted you, the family, the church, and he is determined to also bring down America, if he is permitted to do so!  Do you know what time it is (read Romans 13:11-14)?  In our service this Sunday we will stand together in the presence of our God as Jehoshaphat and God’s people did, praising the LORD and believing Him for a mighty victory over the enemy!  “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered…” (Psalm 68:1)!  God bless you, and remember that “we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us” (Romans 8:37)! ~ Pastor Steve Offringa’s call to worship on the 14th day of November in the year of our Lord, 2020.

The spiritually dead, lukewarm, indifferent, and compromised church and its leaders have fallen for the biggest lie in the history of the world. They have surrendered God-given wisdom and discernment to the powers of darkness. Worse…they hide the cowardice of their inaction behind the cross. This is hard…there is a tendency we all have to take things personal…it has become cultural. Being truthful has become subservient to our fear of offending or being offended. Meanwhile babies are slaughtered for body parts, and sacrificed to Molech, as the sheep are led to the MARK. There is no excuse. Period. God created this stop…to reveal. God help those who fail His test…not my test or your test…not my “judgement” or your judgement. But His test…His judgement. My belief? This is His mercy and grace granting those of us who’ve faltered the opportunity for repentance and redemption. This isn’t about feelings…it’s about Truth.

The agents of these demonic forces who conspired to use a virus (with a survival rate of 99%!) as a weapon in an attempt to steal our country, our freedom, and our way of life, are about to come at us with another round of lockdowns to criminalize Thanksgiving and destroy the businesses and lives of those who managed to hold on after the first. WE MUST STAND TOGETHER. CHURCH TO CHURCH, NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR, AND FRIEND TO FRIEND TO TELL THEM NO!

I am urging each and every one of my readers to stand up, find your Proverbs 1 boldness, and share the truth with everyone you know. God Bless the United States of America!

  1. Chip,

    I don’t know what’s wrong but I’m confused.

    “In this spirit we are inviting you to join us for *Prayer & Fast Wednesday* tomorrow,”. But I received this via the SMTU.

    Also, you were to add my address to the P&F li Ink sent out each week. That’s what I understood anyway. But still nothing received.

    Keep up the good work.

    In Christ,

    Hey John…You would not be the first person I’ve confused. If you send your email address to me at I’ll add you to both the P&FW Invite that goes out every Tues, as well as the Sunday Morning Tune-up list. I incorporate the P&FW invite with the SMTU these days because it is how I feel the Holy Spirit communicating…the loss of truth and freedom…tie into our failure to live the “whole discipline” Chambers opens with. The battlespace is in the “sordid actuality” that we’re afraid to face. Thanks for being here brother.
