The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “Be It Ever So Humble…”

The best for last, the least for most…

“I don’t think you fully comprehend your place in history. They’re going to talk about this, they’re going to discuss this 100 years from now…of what happened, and who’s held people accountable, and how it was done. There’s no 2022. There’s no 2024…that’s all a fantasy. If we don’t get to the bottom of 3 November, for our Forefathers, for what this country really stands for, we stand for nothing.” ~ Steve Bannon

There is an eerie parallel between Holy Week 2,000+ years ago and the battle raging in America at this very hour. In the hours leading up to the Cross, earlier in the week, the old saying be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home played in my head. It brought me back to my childhood growing up in Wyckoff, New Jersey. And moments later, this amazing John Denver song I’d never heard before came on the radio…

So don’t be afraid of the darkness and don’t run away from the storm.

Stand up and face your reflection, the feelings you try to ignore.

After the tempest is over, you’ve let yourself come on through.

You’ll hear a voice in the silence tenderly calling to you.

Home, come on home, ye who are weary, come home.

Softly and tenderly calling, home, come on home. ~ John Denver

And what was Jesus doing in these final ours, as our men’s Bible study group read from John 13? He was washing the feet of His disciples. The ultimate act of being ever so humble. The Greatest power in the universe was throwing the devil a curve of ultimate humility and servitude, the exact polar opposite of devil pride just before the complete fulfillment. It is finished.

When I revisit the humble home neighborhood I grew up in today I see the modest homes have all been replaced with McMansions, and I understand what the voice in the silence is telling me.

America is on the ropes today largely because of the miserable failings of two of the most critical posts in all the land, county sheriffs and church shepherds. When a sitting sheriff tells a group of American patriots “there is no more free speech”, he is telling you two very important and tragic truths; he has surrendered that which he swore an oath to defend and protect, and he is bought and paid for. There are two types of sheriffs; Constitutional sheriffs like my friends Sheriff Richard Mack, founder of CSPOA, and Sheriff Mike Carpinelli of Lewis County NY, and those of, shall we say, a more constipated nature.

The two most critical and fundamental roots of American Exceptionalism are 1) The “Laws of Nature & Nature’s God” * and, 2) our Constitution. Constipated sheriffs and 501c3 shepherds have turned to serve a different master. Truth-be-told ladies and gentlemen, we ALL own a share of our turn from His call to be humble to our want for more. We ALL helped set this stage and make this bed we are (fortunately) waking up in today. Now, we ALL need to STAND UP for 1 & 2 or forsake God’s most precious gift for the generations to come!

A conversation with the dearest sister God ever gave a man the other day yielded important fruit of realization that even she hadn’t caught yet. The 501c3 shepherd has conditioned…or seasoned the flock, may be a better way to put it, to believe God calls us to “honor, respect, and love ALL people.” Love, yes! Honor and respect, however, must be earned first before they can be due.

Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. 8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. ~ Romans 13:7

“Then the preamble set out principles that were already recognized to be ‘self-evident’ by most eighteenth-century Englishmen, closing with the statement that “a long train of abuses and usurpations…evinces a design to reduce [a people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” ~ The Founders’ Bible…these were Godly, honorable, highly respected men.

I had an old friend from the old gang call me the other day to invite me to a reunion of sorts out in Santa Fe this summer. I had just listened to this Bannon clip on BardsFM from the night before. I sent her the quote above, told her I loved her, but said, “I am 100% in this fight. The idea of taking myself off the battlefield to spend time with people who have willfully blinded themselves to the ugly truth, as much as I might enjoy it, would be impossible for me.”

Finally dear friend…on this Easter Sunday. At our Men’s Bible study of John 13, brother Mason asked what the modern-day equivalent of washing feet would be? And brother Rey shared the story of his being humbled into hugging a young hurting man in need of a hug. And the very next day I was treated to this. You must take a 2 minute listen: Washing Feet At The 5:12min mark!

* Laws of Nature – “A rule of conduct arising out of the natural relations of human beings established by the Creator, and existing prior to any positive [written] precept. Thus, it is a law of nature that one man should not injure another, and murder and fraud would be crimes independent of any [written] prohibition from the supreme power.” (Webster’s 1828 Dictionary)

Paraphrase and simplified: The Laws of Nature are intuitively and instinctively known to man. They do not have to be written out. They are in your God-given conscience.

The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, according to the Founders, are the foundation for all law in America. All Laws, Executive Orders or Supreme Court decisions are valid only if they conform to the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. Any laws, orders or rulings made outside the boundaries of the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God are not real, legitimate, enforceable or legally binding. ~ (Our friends at Liberty Christian Fellowship)

  1. The Ten Commandments enumerate our unalienable rights referenced in The Declaration of Independence, which says we are endowed by our Creator with them. These are our God-given #6 right to not be murdered, our #7 right not to be sexually violated, including being misled about God creating us as males and females; our #8 right not to be stolen from, including our votes fraudulently negated, our #9 right not be lied to nor about, especially by the press and media, nor to have our #10 rights violated by those who use government power to covet our 4-P’s – our person’s, people, position and possessions.
    View “The Biblical Basis of The Bill of Rights” (3BR) messages and interviews at:  http://libertycf.org/1591-2/   to see how America was founded upon the application of the Bible to civics, and not on “separation of church of state.”
