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. County by County!

4) Hold your pastor’s feet to the fire. Ask him to sign 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

  1. Apparently, the Holy Sprit is motivating the Body of Christ to gird up our loins for spiritual warfare. For in conjunction with Pastor Steve Offringa’s Dec 31, 2022 Howell’s Chirch post, and this Chip Murray’s “ShutUpAndSing,” here is what the Holy Spirit had me deliver as the Liberty Christian Fellowship Saturday 12/31/22 and Sunday 1/1/23 message:
    Gen. 3:15 explains the purpose of Christ’s coming. Speaking to Satan who caused man to sin, God says…

    15I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring [or seed] and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
and you shall bruise his heel.”

    “Bruising” is a act of physical conflict— warfare! Bruising Satan’s head means inflicting damage on him and those who head up or lead his divisions.

    Bruising the heals of woman’s offspring means, Satan’ strategy is to hobble us and significantly interfere with our walk!

    In Luke 2:34-35, as Mary and Joseph bring Christ into the temple to dedicate Him to the Lord…
    34Then Simeon blessed them and said to His mother Mary:
    “Behold, this Child is appointed to cause
    the rise and fall of many in Israel,
    and to be a sign that will be spoken against,
    35so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed—
    and a sword will pierce your soul as well.”

    Thus Jesus is appointed to ..
    1. cause the rise and fall of many in Israel— This meaning includes that if we fall on Him in repentance, we will rise in His salvation.
    2. be a sign that will be spoken against — meaning He will be opposed. This means Christ will convict and condemn the culture and cultural practices of sinners, and they won’t like it, so there will be OPPOSITION! Remember, the Scribes and Pharisees, who were the most prominent members of the community, opposed Christ Rather than compromise His position, Christ spoke out against their practices. (Many of them apparently got the message, for Acts 6:7 says, “the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith.)
    3. The “Sword of the Spirit” will reveal the thoughts and hearts of many

    Matt 10:24-25 explains how we will be like Christ: 24“A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25It is enough for a disciple to be like his teacher, and a servant like his master.“

    Matt 10:34- explains how Christ equips us for the bruising conflict:
    “Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.”

    Hebrews 4:12 explains this SWORD.
    “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

    If people are at first offended by Gospel and what we tell them the Bible says, let’s ask the to “ask God’s Holy Spirit to soften their hearts towards God’s truth and by that examination of their hearts, they can repent and come to Christ!”

    Ephesians 6:12-14 explains the warfare we will walk as Christ’s disciples to be like our master.

    12For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14Stand therefore, … and take the …sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

    We wield God’s word to “wrestle not against flesh and blood” so flesh and blood can enjoy the benefits of Christ’s coming, which includes salvation, but also the “Christian culture of Western Civilization that was characterized by governments honoring the inalienable rights God gives us which are enumerated in The Ten Commandments!”

    As a remnant church, operating in the Full Gospel Of Christ, unrestrained by and liberated from the false concept of “separation of church and state,” we March forward to apply the Bible to every aspect of life- including civics! Thus our vision and Great Commission ministry is calling to Christ those in government and the culture and teaching them to be DISCIPLES who can apply, operate in and administer the Biblical civics upon which our beloved USA is founded!

    And all God’s people say…

    • Chip Murray says:

      100% Amen Pastor Earl! Rumor has it that our remnant church is highly susceptible to brushfires… “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
