The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ From Upbraid To Upgrade

and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my father.

Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.~ St. Mark 16:14

I have followed the modern-day Joan of Arc (Ann Barnhardt) ever since she put the financial security of her clients before her own interests after Obama-bundler and former governor of New Jersey, Jon Corzine pilfered MF Global in 2011. She contacted her clients, told them she could no longer faithfully manage their investments in a system (COMEX) that had just torpedoed its own integrity, and closed the successful commodity firm she had built…and went to war!

(Originally penned and posted on May 17, ARSH 2012. The conclusion and warning about the “brutality of totalitarian oligarchy being proportional to the effeminacy and cowardice of the men in a conquered culture” was taken at the time by many people as the ravings of an unhinged spinster, detached from reality and warning of things that could never, ever happen in the U.S.A.

My Lady’s on a roll brothers and sisters! Just the other day she offered up this testosterone booster; “All right. They’re on our left.  They’re on our right. They’re in front of us. They’re behind us… They can’t get away this time.”

“We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.” ~ Lieutenant General Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller, Message sent during the Battle of Chosin Reservoir (December ARSH 1950) Vitamin Chesty Puller

In this week’s P&FW Invite I was shown the spirit of Eliab in contrast to the spirit of David his brother in that crucial darkest-before-the-dawn moment in 1 Samuel 17:28. It’s a very ugly spirit my friends because it is a legion made up of jealousy, envy, spite, and cowardice. It’s a spirit of consuming fear that is so frightened of its own success, it cannot bear the success of another…and it is the paralyzing cancer in the vast majority of men, and churchmen in particular, in this our crucial darkest-before-the-dawn moment…he will hide from his own revival.

Goliath is a midget in comparison to the monster before us, and so few among us now just as then will find the strength, the faith, and the courage to go on, but will choose instead to fall in behind the shadow of Eliab. They will find another church to shelter them from the truth of their own cowardice, rather than stand up to the beast that will eventually devour them just the same.

The Good News!

And best of all, think of the strategic mind of God who really let the boys have it * before lifting off from the Mt. Olive launch pad like a Saturn V rocket! He was preparing the ground for their full blossoming into the Acts men they became…just as we are now preparing the ground in Montgomery!

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do, he shall do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my father. ~ John 14:12

I was with the lions and lionesses of the greater works at a unity breakfast in Queens, NY yesterday. “The Devil is a bully, but he cannot stand for a second before God. (ASK)”
