The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “The Authoritative Voice”

The Wild Stallion of Faith

The laws by which we are to govern and be governed, as found in the Constitution, were never meant to be divorced from the authoritative voice of the Declaration, which is the Word of “Nature’s God.” America is a Christian nation! ~ Inseparably Linked, Founders’ Bible

Brothers, we are here on the greatest authority in the universe…

The gifts of our ascended Lord—“apostles, prophets, evangelists”—are “for the equipping of the saints.” If you should be in advance of the rest of the community, God will take you into ‘the ministry of the interior.” Spiritual insight is not for the purpose of making us realize we are better than other people, but in order that our responsibility might be added to. ~ Oswald Chambers, The Ministry of the Interior

…to act on the will of the Father, to carry the torch of liberty for the next generation…

Daniel, as a young man from the royal court in Jerusalem, was taken captive and carted off to exile to Babylon prior to the destruction of the temple. Conscripted to serve in King Nebuchadnezzar’s palace, Daniel and his three friends determined they would not defile themselves, but would remain faithful to God no matter what the cost. ~ Daniel, the Founders’ Bible

…to comport ourselves above reproach, the inclination of our nature, and the enemy’s reach…

What have we not defiled?

We’ve been conditioned to see; their poison as medicine, their indoctrination as education, their propaganda as news, and worst of all…those of us aware as your enemies. ~ Author unknown

…to condition ourselves by daily meditation on the Psalms and Proverbs…

“As I live,” declares the Lord God, “surely because My flock has become a prey, My flock has even become food for all the beasts of the field for lack of a shepherd, and My shepherds did not search for my flock, but rather the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock; ~ Ezekiel 34:8-10

…to extoll virtue, expunge dereliction, and hold ourselves accountable before God…

WISDOM is the first order of God’s creation. “I, wisdom, was with the Lord when He began his work, long before He made anything else. I was created in the very beginning, even before the world began.” (Proverbs 8:22-23)

For something to be truly new it has to align with the eternal fundamental structure of reality beneath the universe. Wisdom began in the Spirit and is revealed in the natural. In the beginning was the Word. The Word was the Son of God. In the beginning the Son of God spoke into being that which the Father showed Him. Jesus said: “For the Father loves the son and shows Him all things that He is doing.” (John 5:20) This suggests something every mystic and spiritual seeker of all the ages would love to discover.


These five rules of creation can change the visible world for you.

Rule #1 Spirit created all things. Spirit controls matter. God’s Word continues to create.

Rule #2 Lesser authority must yield to greater authority. The Word of God revealed to you is the ultimate authority.

Rule #3 The Father reveals what He is wanting sons and daughters to bring into existence. He shows you a potential future the Word can create.

Rule #4 This revelation comes to those in a “love” relationship with the Father. “For the Father LOVES the Son and shows him all things He is doing.”

Rule #5 God can do anything but chooses to limit Himself to create through those who love Him—those who do what the Father shows them. This sometimes involves sacrifice of what we want to do.

All the wisdom needed to execute the blueprint of the Father will come to you. It may show up in the form of someone else who knows what needs to be done for a phase of your destiny. ~ Lance Wallnau

…to rediscover the lost, reclaim the stolen, rebuke the perversion, and re-establish the order…

Let’s define some terms. “Epistemic” means “relating to knowledge or the degree of its validation”. So, “epistemic humility” is a six-dollar term for declaring that we can’t really know anything. The truth is, today the term “epistemic humility” almost always refers to FALSE epistemic humility – for example, when grown adults declare that they have no idea what a “woman” is, or what sex a person is by, say, observing their genitalia or even observing their 23rd chromosome pair… Further, “Knowledge” is the Fifth of the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit (wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord). Whereas wisdom is the mere desire to judge all things through the lens of the One True Faith, knowledge is the ability to concretely do so – in other words, TAKING A STAND… Agnosticism is defined as the belief in the unknowability of the very existence of God, or even about nature and the existence of things in themselves. It is a dark and slippery slope that leads to radical materialism and the “Heresy of Oprah-ism” of “MY truth” and “YOUR truth”, which is, at its root, satanism, the credo of which is: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” Folks, Our Lord makes it VERY clear, repeatedly, in scripture that we are all expected to TAKE A STAND. No fence-sitting. No false epistemic humility.~ Ann Barnhardt

…to finally heed the warning of Jude, face the enemy that crept in unawares, and take our stand…

“We frequently hear that God loves us the way we are. The truth is that since the fall of Adam, God has loved only one person the way he is. We have lost sight of the fact that it is the way we are by nature that put Christ on the Cross. The Bible perspective is quite different. God loves us despite the way we are.” ~ Pastor Alistair Begg, Jude 1:3,4

…to ride the Wild Stallion of Faith straight into the fire, through the valley of the shadow of death into the eternal life…

The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; and it was full of bones. He causes me to pass among them round about, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley; and lo, they were very dry. He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophecy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.’” So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life.”’” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, and exceedingly great army. ~  Ezekiel 37:1-10

…to stand before God on the other side of His reset, able to check all ten…

I have a brother Eric I’ve never met I hope to share a pint with one day. Originally from the UK, he’s been in the fight much longer than I have. Though we’ve never met, I feel closer to him than many I’ve known most of my life. Many talk the talk…God love His precious few who walk the walk…

The God of Israel wants His People, Jews and Christians, to fight the enemy…WITH HIM! 2 Chronicles 20:20. “…and as they went to battle, Jehoshaphat said: ‘Hear me O Judah, and you, O Israel, believe in the Lord God, so you shall be established, believe in his prophets, and so you shall prosper.'” We shall prosper and triumph through God, through BELIEF IN HIS ALMIGHTY POWER. TRUE FAITH IN GOD IS ABSOLUTE. My Jewish and Christian friends, our forebearers triumphed against overwhelming odds because their FAITH moved God to give them victory. For all those Jews and Christians under persecution in our time, believe, believe and fight until you can’t fight any more. God will intervene, through his angels, and his servants on earth. God bless and empower you. ~ Eric Roland Martin

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “When the Wicked Arise,”

“I coulda been a contender!”

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy…He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church…For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle? …But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all…For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints…Let all things be done decently and in order. ~ 1 Corinthians 14:1,4,8,24,33,40

“When the wicked arise,” the 2nd half of Proverbs 28:12 reads, “men hide themselves.” And sometimes they hide so well they are unable to find themselves. I have a spiritual warfare brother who shared something more common than you would think in Hostage Rescue situations. In a sort of Stockholm Syndrome-like trance where the hostage exhibits a reluctance to be rescued, the rescuer looks him in the eye and says if you want to live follow me. From that point they are rescued consciously on their own two feet, or unconsciously over the rescuer’s shoulder…that’s actually a very good picture of too many of today’s men held captive by their own fears.  Ann Barnhardt described it perfectly, “That is, men, wallowing in their own effeminacy, tell themselves that what they see happening right in front of their eyes “isn’t really happening”, or is “no big deal”. It takes them far, far too long to respond, if they even respond at all, and our culture is now so far gone that men will now even DEFEND THEIR ATTACKERS purely in order to avoid acting like men and defending themselves, much less the women, children and elderly around them.” ~ “…and they all just sit there.”

Thus, sayeth the Lord, “but he who prophesies edifies the church…,” and He most certainly knows that of all men, it is the churchmen who are in the greatest need of edifying…without which rescue becomes highly unlikely. “But as for me, I am like the (Psalm 52:8) green olive tree in the house of God;”

The majority of us have no ear for anything but ourselves, we cannot hear a thing God says. To be brought into the zone of the call of God is to be profoundly altered. ~ Oswald Chambers, The Voice of God’s Nature

“Profoundly altered” barely scratches the surface brothers and sisters. When one fortunate enough to hear God is in the zone, nothing else matters. And I mean absolutely nothing. So, let us unpack the rest of what He had to say to me this week. Early in the week He connected J6 and the enemy’s attempt to destroy us to Nehemiah 4:15 “God had brought their plot to nothing,”. And then He tied the opening 1 Corinthians 14:4 prophesier to the Proverbs 28:12 threat to the Oswald Chambers’ voice of God to The Letter of Jude!

WOW…40 min on a 25-verse epistle that barely scratched the surface and yet revealed so much!! If you really want to understand what happened to the church, do yourself a favor and rent the movie On the Waterfront. It’s ALL there! In the scene above, washed-out prize-fighter Terry Malloy played brilliantly by Marlon Brando has just had his “I coulda been a contender” epiphany and is unloading on his mobster brother in his tortured rage. What does Terry Malloy have to do with Jude’s letter? Terry Malloy IS the church Jude was writing to my friends. Jude saw Terry all the way across the millennia and exchanged his original theme of common salvation for dire warning in verse three. He saw the verse 4 certain persons have crept in. The certain persons paid Terry not to do his job…to take a dive as it’s called in the boxing world. The Terry Malloy’s in our church pulpits, as Jude was well aware, are infinitely more devastating to society than one crooked sports racket. Terry’s soul was the only real soul at stake along with the money of those who bet on him. I loved my former pastor. I trusted my former pastor. I saw the wolf in my former church, I heard the voice of God, and the pastor knew…it broke my heart, but the wolf stayed and I left. The key to the dive is this. They can’t see you taking it. The Terry’s in the pulpits are like baby-kissing politicians…gotta make it look good…clouds without water, autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead.  The most important word in Jude’s letter to my mind is the word contend, and not just contend brothers and sisters…Jude is calling the brethren to contend earnestly. He’s calling us to fight as if our eternal lives depend on it, which of course they do…

Those of us, remnant though we may be, who are His called, beloved, and kept, relying on His mercy, peace, and love will continue to contend earnestly for the faith which was handed down for ALL the saints as we pray for the Terry Malloy’s in today’s pulpits to find the same redemptive heart Terry himself finally found on the waterfront…before all time and now and forever. Amen.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Calling the David’s

…And the boy Samuel continued to grow in stature and in favor with the Lord and with men…  ~ 1 Samuel 2:26

I need you to listen to just eight minutes of the Bards podcast from last Thursday night to understand the scope of evil and deception threatening our entire civilization in this hour. Please listen from 5:55min mark to 13:45 The Illusion of Nation States

And this, brothers and sisters, is how they’ve managed to do what they’ve managed to do…up to this point.  “Take out the men.”

Yesterday I attended a prayer breakfast in Yonkers organized by IFA (Intercessors For America) to call out and pray for an end to abortion and child sex trafficking. Of the thirty or so attending, there were only three men who showed up.

I am going to share my opinion of where we are and what we are facing. To make it easier to explain, I will break our society into three equal groups. A third have no idea whatsoever of any of what is going on around them. Their focus is on their own daily needs and pleasures and they will follow any authority they believe will continue to supply their needs and pleasures. Then there is the one third who understand we are in a war…an info-war on our own soil. A war of white hats against black hats…good versus evil. This is an interesting group because of its potential. It is a divided group of people once evenly divided with half thinking that the black hats were fighting for them. As people are waking up to the evil that has been forced out into the light of day, the balance is rapidly shifting to favor those in the white hat bleachers. I use the term bleachers because of the fact that up until now this entire third has been passive, observers, spectators in this most important moment in the history of mankind. I say potential because once this group engages the war will be nearly won. That leaves the final third. Remember, I made the groups equal to keep it simple. The final third is smaller than the first two. This group understands that the binary white vs black is an illusion meant to keep us in the bleachers. This group believes that Schwab’s Great Reset and Trump’s MAGA are two sides of the same coin, both seeking their own versions of total top-down control of our lives. This group believes that we were not created by God to be enslaved by either…which brings us to the title of today’s Tune-up…in the light of Maxwell’s “Room to Grow”.

Evil began constructing the aquarium to contain men around the same time it created the feminist movement here in America. Who knew? “The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him, the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free.” ~ Aldous Huxley

When I first recognized the wolf in sheep’s clothing in our local governments and social institutions, which sadly and tragically included churches, and started to call them out, I had a local businessman say to me, “These people will destroy you!” That was probably 8-10 years ago. I’m still here!  

“I thoroughly believe…that people who think they’ll be safe by going along with evil and not causing trouble, or putting themselves at risk, are not going to be safe.” ~ Dr. Naomi Wolfe

I can tell you from my own personal experience and observations that Dr. Wolfe is only half right. Not only are those who ignore the call God puts on their heart facing the very thing they’re seeking to avoid, they lose God’s favor in just about all aspects of their lives. In other words, God rewards those who risk themselves for others. I had a brother once who liked to talk about how he would “man the ramparts” when the time came. He had that opportunity when were called to be part of a team of men to shadow and, if need be, interrupt Antifa and other bad actors’ attempts to block President Trump’s motorcade from the Capitol Building to the Whitehouse after President Trump’s Inauguration in 2017. We knew what we knew because one of our guys had infiltrated Antifa and had been attending their meetings leading up to the event. My brother declined the opportunity when the time came because, “My wife doesn’t want me to go.” Who knows if that was true or not? God. I had another brother share just the other day that the fear of what they might do to his family is what holds him back. Who knows whether or not that is the real truth, or the head-fake so many men living inside the aquarium are able to give ourselves? God knows. Here is what I do know. If this was the thinking of men before the aquarium was built, George Washington would never have formed an army two hundred and forty-seven years ago, and Eisenhower would have had no men to fill the landing crafts that stormed Normandy to free the world seventy-nine years ago.

Why does God tell us to “fear not” 365 times in the Bible?

 “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace; and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty.” ~ Thomas Paine

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. —Martin Niemöller

I will tell you why I am still here. First and foremost, I am still here because it is God’s will for me to still be here, and I don’t believe He’s finished with me yet. But, I am also still here because the enemy knows, and/or has found out what it has/had to go through to get to me. Its time to rise my brothers, and remember Costner’s line in the Open Range, “There’s things that gnaw on a man worse than dying.”  It’s as good a day as any to bust out of the tank and “grow in stature”, Amen?

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “Your Work”

Understanding of the times…

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. ~ Isaiah 58:12

This week I found myself between Isaiah and Jeremiah on ground they knew very well. Its also ground that the German Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer was arrested in 1943 for daring to stand on. This week almost every Christian eye is on the Asbury “Revival” in Kentucky for good reason. Something is definitely going on there that is worth paying attention to. That’s where your work, my work, and our work comes in…with a heaping dose of the Intuition of Issachar.

Thus says the Lord, “Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears; For your work will be rewarded,” declares the Lord, “And they will return from the land of the enemy. There is hope for your future,” declares the Lord, “And your children will return to their own territory.” ~ Jeremiah 31:16,17

Because my dear brothers and sisters, as I said to my pastor this week, “Who can tell rainbows from hell, or Angels from Devils anyway?” John Leake has both an interesting and alarming take on what has blinded us. Raise your hand if you recognize the stupor around you. Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than wickedness. Evil can be protested against, exposed, and, if necessary, it can be prevented by force. Evil always harbors the germ of self-destruction by inducing at least some uneasiness in people. We are defenseless against stupidity. Nothing can be done to oppose it, neither with protests nor with violence. Reasons cannot prevail. Facts that contradict one’s prejudice simply don’t need to be believed, and when they are inescapable, they can simply be brushed aside as meaningless, isolated cases. ~ John Leake, “On Stupidity”

The other factor worth noting, besides the 1 Chronicles 12 Sons of Issachar read in this morning’s devotional, is the view from the 1st Century Disciples’ eyes our Orange Strong Bible Study is appreciating up through chapter 19 of Acts this week. The Acts church was “of one accord.” We, my brothers and sisters, as the German church before us, are not. VERY far from it. So while I pray the Asbury Revival is of God, through God, and for the glory of His kingdom, I caution us all to view it through a discerning lens. Remember: Fifth generation warfare has been described by Daniel Abbot as a war of “information and perception”

So, its healthy and wise to ask ourselves, “Was the Asbury event spontaneous or planned?” I was sent this very credible report that suggests the latter. “Fake Asbury Revival”  which I forwarded to CLOTH brothers and sisters with my opinion that we are witnessing a Social Justice inspired event. I did have a couple of folks respond asking how I could be so sure. One friend sent this report from her “Facebook friends”. I changed the names: Chip, I was little confused about one of the posts about the Asbury revival. Maybe I misunderstood. Everything I’ve read has been positive about it. This is from a post on Facebook of a friend.

Tom and I went to the Asbury Revival in Wilmore, Kentucky last weekend.  Over 20,000 people descended upon the university while we were there.  They had to open up satellite locations around the campus and an area church because of the amount of people.  Video screens were placed outside on the university lawn where we worshiped, prayed and entered into what God was doing inside Hughes.  I even took my coat, socks and shoes off and worshiped danced on the lawn in the 40 degree weather.  I didn’t care how cold it was or about getting my feet dirty.  During times of repentance, people were on their knees in the muddy ground.  No one seemed to care.  We just wanted more of JESUS.  The interaction with fellow believers was just incredible!  There was such peace, honor and respect for one another.  People were loving and patient with one another.  We were so blessed to meet Chris and Anna Beach and Erica Cook and share our stories and pray together.  The Salvation Army handed out free food, water and hot coffee.  What a blessing!

Someone captured this picture of us in Hughes Memorial Auditorium.  The presence of God was thick, weighty, and tangible.  We waited in line to get into Hughes for about 6 1/2 hours.  Some waited in line for 8, 9, 10 hours to get into Hughes.  When we finally got inside, it was as if time stood still.  Tom and I were so caught up in His presence.  People came in from all over the world.  As a matter of fact, most people who came there were from outside of the area.  It was SO amazing, incredible and powerful to experience the corporate tangible presence of God!  A pastor and his wife from Chile’ sold their car so they could come to the revival. After giving their testimony, the entire place broke out in corporate prayer for Latin America to receive revival fire.  We heard many testimonies from young people.  There was such vulnerability of public confessions, especially of porn addiction and sexual sin. Souls were flooding the altar in repentance and receiving salvation, healing and deliverance.  People reported of physical healings in their bodies.  I had been in the Toronto Blessing as well as the Lakeland Revival.   Experiencing the purity, simplicity, holiness, reverential fear of the Lord and power of the Holy Spirit in the Asbury outpouring was reminiscent of the Catholic charismatic renewal in which I got saved in.  The hunger for God was evident.  People would line up and share a single verse from the Bible.  After reading the verse, the facilitator on the microphone would say, “This the Word of God” and everyone would respond back, “We Believe It”.  Simple yet profound messages were preached by the faculty.  There was a commissioning to all of us to go out from Asbury, take this revival fire and spread to all the world.  It is hard to describe seeing and experiencing the Holy Spirit being poured out! Tom and I were completely wreaked by God and in tears so much of the weekend!  God is pouring out His Spirit in these last days for sure!!  Our deep cry and prayer before the Lord is “Pour out Your Spirit upon the whole earth Lord Jesus!  Come Lord Jesus Come!!  We cry, “MORE LORD..MORE!!”😭🔥😭🔥😭🔥😭

#asburyrevival2023 #revival #outpouring #HolySpirit #Jesus

Now, to be clear, I hope and pray we are witnessing a true manifestation of the Holy Spirit in Kentucky. But, interestingly, in this same week another production that has captured the hearts and minds of Christians across the globe, including mine, the VERY popular series The Chosen came up. This was sent to me from a pastor, “This is DEEPER Than We Thought.” Which prompted this from another pastor whom I regard as a mentor in the Faith: “Whenever there is a move of God there is inevitably much carnal and demonic  activity as well. We must never “throw out the baby with the bathwater.” Let the wheat and the tares grow together. God will sort it out. Don’t miss the move of the Holy Spirit by being distracted by other spirits.”

And still another pastor I spoke with this week, led me back to your work, my work, our work. He said, “I don’t know about down there. I know about here.” Which I have to say goes to the heart of understanding 5th Generation Warfare, and sage advice from “Doc” Chambers, “You have to control the controllables.”  What do Asbury or The Chosen have to do with our work, and/or what we can control? Are Asbury and The Chosen a distraction (intended or otherwise) from our work?

Do you know where the term “dog king” originated? You may want to tune in since you, me, and our families are all being ruled by one in the present moment. “On the Front Line in Ohio”

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “Have I Missed The Battle?”

“Have I Missed The Battle?”

The church of Jesus Christ is an organism; we are built up into Him, baptized by one Spirit into the body. Churchianity is an organization. Churchianity is an organization; Christianity is an organism. Organization is an enormous benefit until it is mistaken for the life. God has no concern about our organizations. When their purpose is finished He allows them to be swept aside, and if we are attached to the organization, we shall go with it. ~ Oswald Chambers, Christ’s Body, the Church

There are no words to describe how lost we Americans are in this hour. We are a toxic stew of indifference, ignorance, self-indulgence, willful blindness, and cowardice completely detached from any sense of moral obligation or duty in the darkest hour our country has ever faced. Paul Revere had an easy job sounding the alarm to a people capable of being alarmed.

Earlier this week I had a conversation with a young pastor who was completely and totally blind to the evil at our door. “It’s always been like this.” His primary societal lament was a shortage of volunteers. He knew who Jonathan Edwards and John Witherspoon were. He knew of their most famous sermons, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” and “The Dominion of Providence Over the Passions of Men”, but the timeless essence of their message was completely lost on him. There is nothing more horrific to my mind than the idea of this young pastor shepherding young souls. Imagine a farmer with no concept of what seeds are and what to do with them…or a cop who can’t distinguish between a criminal and a saint. Last night was the cherry on top of the state of our union…dinner party with old friends…fully dosed with the bioweapon, and grandparents to a child who will be raised by woke parents…100% oblivious and/or indifferent to the real nature of things.

“There’s gonna be a twister that blows everything down that ain’t got the strength to stand it’s ground.” ~ Bruce Springsteen, Bad Lands

The oblivious, while they may be entitled to the charity of forgiveness, will be just as swept away with Oswald’s organizations, and blown away in the Boss’ badlands as those who knew and did nothing. But, “Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!” declares the Lord. ~ Jeremiah 23:1  “As I live,” declares the Lord God, “surely because my flock has become a prey, My flock has even become food for all the beasts of the field for lack of a shepherd, and My shepherds did not search for my flock, but rather the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock;” ~ Ezekiel 34:8

God laid these verses on me this week…Psalm 34:3,7 Proverb 24:7, 12, 25 Ephesians 5:11

Are all Christians guaranteed salvation?

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him,                                                      And rescues them. ~ Psalm 34:7

Fear of the Lord means I fear to step outside of the bounds He has set for me. The angel of the Lord does not and will not encamp around those who fear men…

Psalm 91:11…For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways… IF I dwell in the shelter of the Most High…which means IF I have faith.

I said to my Bible study brothers this past week, “I do not see Acts-faith in churchmen!” I really don’t know what it will take, but I love them and would do anything to spare them the “Have I Missed The Battle?” agony of shame they are walking themselves into… Imagine the reception line in Heaven compared to the earthly reception line Commodus had to walk through at the end of the battle. How will the Commodus churchmen face Paul, Peter, Stephen, Timothy, Barnabas, Titus, and ultimately Jesus?

Tucker Carlson revealed the tragic consequence of too many good men being silent for too long. WANTED, Dead or Alive: Straight White Men

You see, when we lose our faith, we lose the angels that would have otherwise been encamped around us…inviting demons to fill the void. Many years ago I had one come at me in the middle of a packed food court in some mall. I shared this incident with my friend Bob who had just explained a similar attack the modern prophet Amanda Grace had experienced. They can “sniff” the Holy Spirit in us, but when they confront it, they feel their own powerlessness and flee. The people around me in the food court were petrified of this mad woman, but the something in me knew I had nothing to fear.

I sang Independence Day to the dinner party hosts and guests last night, I was born in the land of my father’s home, in this world of illusion I thought I owned the birthright of freedom that we hold dear, was paid for by strangers no longer here.

I pray my brothers find that something while they still can.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Standing on the Promise

Salvation is easy because it cost God so much, but the manifestation of it in my life is difficult. God does expect a man to be a man. God saves a man and endues him with His Holy Spirit, and says in effect, “Now it is up to you to prove it, work it out; be loyal to Me while the nature of things round about you would make you disloyal. I have called you friends, now stand loyal to your Friend.” His honor is at stake in our bodily life. ~ Oswald Chambers, The Duty of Loyalty

I am blessed by God to be in the company of some pretty amazing brothers and sisters for just such a time as this. Brother John in Texas writes me just the other day, “Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your world view, our fight will be exponentially more difficult. As for me, I thank God for giving me life during these times. Hard times tend to congregate real, God-fearing men.” As our brother Keith, who could teach a course on the Book of Enoch, checks in early this morning from the Left Coast with this…

“Check this out! Who knows how old this really is. Look at the quality of how incredibly detailed this is. We don’t do anything along the line of this ornate. We must be close. Sounds like under the Euphrates where the fallen angels are supposedly chained up, The Giants and their remains being more and more in the news. ‘Just in the days of Noah, so shall it be when the Son of Man returns.’ God is trying to warn us. Remember, once they are let out of the abyss, they kill 1/3 of mankind. People need to hear this.

Please get this out to the group bro!” Fallen Angel 

And this brings us to my newly discovered brothers in Liberty, New York. When we learn to listen to Him and let God lead, He leads us to exactly where we need to be. He led me to an amazing group of pastors and church leaders who meet once a month for prayer, praise, and breakfast. I was encouraged, inspired, and uplifted by the group that averages twenty or better when I attended my first meeting this past November. They thanked God for women and called on men to step up and reclaim their leadership role in their families, their churches, and their communities. I was so impressed, I brought my own pastor, and another pastor from our area to the December meeting.

But then something strange happened. I detected a different spirit at the breakfast meeting in January. It was a spirit that sought to quench the Spirit I first discovered. It was a spirit I was very familiar with, having encountered it in my former church. It goes by many names, and speaks with many voices, but it was the “No Politics Allowed In Here!” voice heard loud and clear last month by both my self and brother Sanford, also from my church. I felt it was not my place to question it at the time, but the Lord put it on my heart the next day after reading Pastor Steve’s devotional preparational he had penned around the time the Liberty brothers were laying down the new house rules…rules that Pastor Steve would have had no way of being aware of:

The attack against established Biblical truth, and especially against the sanctity of God-given personhood, is a satanic, fierce and most dangerous one, aimed at destroying established faith and family values!  As those who believe in absolute Biblical principle, we have both the right and the responsibility to stand for truth and to expose the evil around us, regardless of what others may say of us!  And, don’t let anyone accuse you of being merely “political” for standing up for truth!  Was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. just “political” for standing against the wickedness of racial hatred, even in the church?  Is antisemitism something just “political” in nature?  What about the torturous decapitating and dismembering of unborn babies, the demonic sexualizing of our children, their moral brainwashing in a sociopathic educational system, or the tyranny of big pharma, and of what has become the new corporate medical industry”?  Just “political”?  If you think so, you are probably a good candidate for what’s ahead, including the mark of the beast, unless you truly repent and follow Christ, even to death (Revelation 12:11)!  Are we on the Lord’s side, or are we the fearful victims of the world’s ungodly delusion?  Dr. King said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”. ~ Pastor Steve Offringa of Howells Church, Saturday Morning January 14, 2023

Yes, Holy Spirit did not have to whack me upside my head to have me realize my iron-sharpens-iron obligation to my Liberty brothers, but He did anyway! So I reached out to both the hosting pastor and the good brother who handles the music and the communications for the group, and shared what really amounts to a Hosea 4:6 concern. My people perish for lack of knowledge. And, of course, what has the enemy succeeded in labeling as “political”? The very things we as Christian men and women need knowledge of. And the real test…what is the scriptural basis for such a rule?

In any case, as the time drew near for this month’s gathering, I felt a growing trepidation in my soul as the situation remained undiscussed and subsequently unresolved…right up to the time of the meeting which occurred yesterday morning. What should I do? What did I do? I did what all Christians should do, I prayed for the Holy Spirit to guide me. The Holy Spirit answered me with, “Relax, I’ve got this.” And, as He promised, so it turned out. I did not realize until that morning, yesterday morning that Sanford was bringing the message to the Liberty pastors. And I am more than delighted to tell you that his John 17:21 call to unite and stand together was very warmly received by the entire room…not a trace of the quenching spirit from the prior month.

So, what does this all add up to? The united fish meme, which I love for the fact that the fish is the recognized symbol of Christianity, illustrated above is a wonderful visualization…but we are not there. Oswald Chambers could see us from one hundred years ago why we’re not. As brother John concluded in his note, “Like Colonel Travis at the Alamo, when we accepted Christ as our Savior, we became committed enemies to the world, I am glad to be on your team!”  That, my brothers and sisters, is the committed school of John 17:21 fish the shark fears most. Time to stand and turn some tables, amen?

If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Savior, I strongly encourage and implore you to do so now. Ask Him into your heart and do it now. Accept Him as your Lord & Savior and repent and ask His forgiveness. It is, as Oswald states above, as easy as that.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Breaking & Remaking

“We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will surely overcome it.” ~ Numbers 13:30

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials. ~ James 1:2

Ah my brothers…the James 1:2 punch, eh? For the sake of Jesus, we will be tested, we will suffer, we may even die. Moses had everything. Born the son of Pharaoh, a prince with every “privilege and pleasure of the palace” as Maxwell shares in his daily leadership devotional this past Friday, “Give Up”. Not so different from the modern-day privilege and pleasure castles we have been groomed and conditioned into today. Truth-be-told, Pharaoh would envy what we have attained. Amen? But Moses, called by God, gave it all up for forty years of exile in the desert. Maxwell goes on, “By then, Moses had undergone the breaking and remaking process required for him to be used by God.”

The righteous is a guide to his neighbor, But the way of the wicked leads them astray. ~ Proverb 12:26

God compelled me in an iron sharpens iron moment this past week to challenge the leader of my men’s Bible study group and the men themselves. He had asked us to come back the following week with examples of how God was working in our lives, and I turned the tables by posing the question, “How are we working in God’s life?”

But when I saw they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, “If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews?” ~ Galatians 2:14

THINK…what must it have taken for freshman Paul to challenge the well-seasoned senior Peter right there in front of all the troops! Who did he think he was? Who do we think we are…in this season where Lieutenant Colonels are challenging their Generals who’ve violated their oaths, as the sheep are challenging their shepherds for violating theirs? By the way, I am in no way comparing Peter, who went to the cross for Christ, to generals and pastors who have led and are leading their troops and flocks to slaughter.

If you are slack in the day of distress, your strength is limited. Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, oh hold them back. If you say, “See, we did not know this,” does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work? ~ Proverb 24:10-12

“Slack…in the day of distress.” Hello! Those six words are the very reason Eric Metaxas wrote his Letter to the American Church! This week God gave me this insightful juxtaposition that goes to the very heart of the problem in the majority of American churches today:

Laurie shared this beautiful expression of grandmother love (Chesed) on the virtue of quietly waiting…

Doc shared this equally beautiful expression of cowboy love (Gevurah) on the necessity of taking of the blinders and getting in the fight (cowboy/sailor language alert)…

And my exchange with Laurie: Lovely Laurie…I was taught long ago the powerful spiritual tool of “holding opposites.” It made David a great King. Because he had both the heart expressed in your video, as well as the love expressed in a slightly different way by this rancher…French Alert! ~ Chip

Chip, awesome opposites.  We should be the farmer on the outside – forward the world and the grandma on the inside secure in the faith that Jesus will take us home at exactly the right moment. ~ Laurie

The enemy, as is it’s vampiric nature to do, has drained by the very infiltration Jude warned us of, the Gevurah blood energy…the masculine strength out of the church. It’s the hyper grace problem Pastor Earl speaks of when calling out the half gospel, hyper grace church. It’s the same problem that prompted Doc in this same week to ask, “Where are the men?” Answer: They are quietly waiting…

God loves Proverb 16:11 balance and scales in men…its why David was the man after His own heart. On the other hand, we know that He despises imbalance and the cowardly. Metaxas wrote about the “where are the men” church in Germany 84 years ago, inviting the death of millions by quietly waiting.

God’s third message to me this week is that we, remnant though we may be, are called to be the guides in this hour…through the valley…

A Psalm (Heart) & Proverb (Wisdom) a Day Drives the Tyrant Away! PS 23:3 He restores my soul;

He guides me in the paths of righteousness

For His name’s sake.

PR 13:8 The ransom of a man’s life is his wealth,

But the poor hears no rebuke.

God made us as men to be balanced in love and strength. It gives us both courage and confidence in battle. The hyper-grace imbalance gives us fear. Out of fear we tell ourselves many lies while we wait quietly for that “something big that’s about to happen.” Fear is the greatest killer of all. And the great irony, as God sees everything, fear decays the inner man!

Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:16–5:1

Give it up while you are able brothers. The time to break the old and remake the new is at hand.

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ 5th Generation Warfare & Restoring Truth

My people perish for lack of knowledge. ~ Hosea 4:6

Fifth-generation warfare is conducted primarily through non-kinetic military action, such as social engineering, misinformation, cyberattacks, along with emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and fully autonomous systems. Fifth generation warfare has been described by Daniel Abbot as a war of “information and perception”. ~ Wikipedia

“Truth becomes pluralized, trust is degraded and with it goes the morals and values of a nation.” ~ Scott Kesterson

Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. “Be angry, and do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. ~ Ephesians 4:25-32

A Psalm (Heart) & Proverb (Wisdom) a Day Drives the Tyrant Away! PS 17:3 You have tried my heart;

You have visited me by night;

You have tested me and you find nothing;

I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.

PR 7:8 Passing through the street to her corner;

And he takes the way to her house,

NOTE: Brothers and sisters, I encourage you this morning to read PS 17 & PR 7 in their entirety as God sends us a clear “apple of the eye” message in this fog of 5th generation warfare. Lean in to Him now as never before!

…as the following appears in my gmail inbox, “Should biological men be allowed to compete in women’s sports?” And, “Intercourse vs Treadmill?”…

Pastor Bill of the New York Faith & Freedom Coalition, whose “Restore Truth in 2023” message was embedded in last Sunday’s Tune-up, is calling God’s people to something God’s people have not been very good at for quite some time. Seeking truth, last year’s calling, was the easy part for objective-minded folks with access to the internet. Restoring it is quite another matter, requiring two additional qualities lacking in God’s people; faith and courage. Faith, of all things, the central figure in The Monument to the Forefathers pictured above. Pastor Bill played the movie embedded in the link to a roomful of Christian patriots last night. The two major takeaways? Most, myself included, were unaware of the monument’s existence. And only one person in the room besides myself knew about 5th Generation Warfare!

Question: How in the world do a people who have no idea who they are, where they come from, or the nature of the war they are in the middle of, restore truth? Answer: God!

Watching Holy Spirit move in people, connecting people, opening their hearts and then their eyes is a remarkably uplifting and empowering thing. In this week’s prayer and fast invite, the question “Are you glued to the world?” was raised…along with the warning, “Laying low and taking ourselves off the ‘political’ field while God is calling us to RISE is WGD (World Glue Death)! In a group that has been extremely low-lying and completely off the political field, a retired NYC cop, introduced to this group by Holy Spirit, gave a remarkable witness to the power of the Holy Spirit this past Friday. He shared how his family had been under intense attack from the enemy, and how it nearly killed his daughter through anorexia…down to 57lbs, until they connected with modern prophet Amanda Grace by helping her rescue a horse. While visiting with the family at their Orange County home, the daughter invited Amanda upstairs to her bedroom, where the father, after hearing a commotion, eventually encountered a healed daughter after Amanda had cast out 12 separate demonic spirits. True story!

The very same Holy Spirit showing YOU exactly who and where YOU are in the Psalm 17, Proverb 7 message above. Right smack dab in the middle between God and the enemy; the Proverb 7 “Harlot”…the Whore of Babylon…our own government! Which brings us to courage.

SW Brother, Founder of the School of Doc, LTC (Ret.) Pete Chambers…on the wall!

“There is certainly nothing more strongly marked in the precepts and examples of Christ than the principles of stubborn and inflexible resistance against the impulses of others to evil.” ~ John Quincy Adams in a letter to his son, George Washington Adams, Founders’ Bible

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ Chaos, Risk, & Brushfires, Oh My!

The gay couple charged with molesting and trafficking their adopted 9 and 11-yr-old sons

My new favorite writer…“Life is a war. Sometimes we win our battles, sometimes we don’t. We fight against the world to keep the faith, to hold families together, to pay bills, and to keep vehicles running. Often it seems that the war of a man’s life is simply an unending fight against entropy, Chaos, and decay. Especially if one drives an older vehicle.

Trying to start a homestead is another battle against entropy. God commanded Noah to take dominion over the Earth and commanded Adam in a similar fashion. Taking dominion means imposing order on the chaos, putting things into their proper place. The first acts of the Creation were acts of imposing order. Light was created, then separated from darkness. Sky, Earth, and Water were then separated from each other.” ~ J.Pilgrim

Where to begin? Genesis is as good a place as any. John, who introduces Jesus as the Genesis Light, says in 1:5. “The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” The very Light that was prophesied nearly 400 times in the Old Testament was rejected in the New, and He was hung on a tree for the sins of every man, woman, and child…past, present, and future. For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16 That, my brothers and sisters, is a love too deep to fathom! Yet, how many of us are poised, many not realizing, to reject Him again? The father of all lies, and creator of chaos and decay, has done a remarkable job keeping so many in the darkness, stuck like glue in the ways of the flesh.

As J.Pilgrim states in his opening salvo, Life is a war. And, as someone once wrote, Life is a many splendored thing as well. God designed us, unlike every other living creature, with free will…the power to choose light or dark, chaos or order. There is a great deal in the Tune-up this morning from both sides of the fence. But the  Opening Story of the gay couple pictured above who adopted two young boys from a Christian agency for the purpose of molesting them and sex-trafficking them is by far the most horrific story I have ever read in this, the 70th year of my life. I need to be clear…this is not an attack on gays, I have family and friends who live this lifestyle who are good and loving people living their lives by the dictates of their own conscience and free will. I believe they represent the majority of the gay community, just as the majority of the Muslim community are not represented by the Jihadists who choose the darker path. But the very same father of all lies, creator of chaos uses the militant minorities in both communities to hold the entire world hostage, so he can hunt those of us who by our own conscience and free will, have chosen the Light of true liberty and freedom. That brings us to risk in a dangerous world.  

George Orwell wrote, “Truth becomes treason in the empire of lies.” I highly encourage to listen to Scott Kesterson’s BardsFM podcast from Friday night, Orwellian Nation

“Evil never becomes good, and wrong never becomes right, just because the majority believe it to be so.” ~ Booker T. Washington

Just as mold seeks the darkness, evil thrives on chaos, darkness, and decay…which is precisely why Jesus calls us in Matthew 5:13-16 to be the salt and the light. A study of the Book of Acts gives us a clear picture of the risk taken by the First Century Disciples to be the salt and light in their day. Not so long ago our news-media was the salt and light to a free nation…now they are the agents of darkness, turning our attention and $BILLIONS away from the invasion of our own country to push us into a war with Russia…Like a leaky pipe that can cause a whole house to flood, our leaky border affects every state in our nation as the drugs, human-trafficking victims, and criminal elements fan out over the country. The Satanic Roots of the Border Crisis

Perhaps the biggest story of all is what is now being framed in ever-growing circles as the greatest crime against humanity since the dawn of time itself. The mass genocide and depopulation wrought by the WEF and WHO elites behind the Great Reset designed to bring the entire population of the world under the thumb and total control of a One World Order.

BREAKING NEWS: 17,000 Physicians and Scientists declare that Pfizer, Moderna, BioNTech, Janssen, Astra Zeneca, and their enablers, withheld and willfully omitted safety information from patients and physicians which led to toxic death and should be immediately indicted for fraud.

Utah doctor indicted by the state for protecting and saving children… Utah Doctor Charged For Saving Lives

Come to think of it, Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer was executed for braking the law to save the world 79 years ago! Saving the world from the dark JUST before the dawn is risky business. Just ask best-selling author Eric Metaxas who had to write his Letter to the American Church just two years after writing Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy because too many pastors seem to have gotten comfortable hanging with the mold in the darkness and decay. FEAR

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” ~ Plato

Salt & Light from our modern-day Bonhoeffers:

The “No Politics” mantra coming from a solid majority of church pulpits, translated, means, “We do not want to know what is happening outside these walls that would compel us, for our own conscience’s sake, to take action which would put our jobs, our possessions, and our lives at risk.”

Ha…nearly forgot the brushfire!

“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

The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ In That Day…When Fools Rush In

In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:

“We have a strong city; God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks. Open the gates, That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in. You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.” ~ Isaiah 26:1-4

Trust in the Lord means we trust in His promises…

To possess the promises will require a fresh consecration, the courage to cross over, the will to enter in and fight, obedience to His voice, as He empowers them to dispossess those stronger than they are. ~ Founders’ Bible

He empowers those who are willing to enter in and fight. “Enter in” doesn’t mean to blindly comply with satanic forces that want to take away our God-given rights, tear apart families, pervert and destroy our children, by entering into their top down, centrally controlled beast system.

That day has become this day. We are in the fight of our lives to reclaim what has been stolen from every single American, whether all of us are aware of it, or not. We have a choice to make. Please allow me to assume that most Americans, after witnessing the clown show formally known as the “Biden Administration,” will choose the promise of God over the lies of those who’ve hijacked our country. And, in order to possess His promise, we need a 2 Chronicles 7:14 heart of sincere repentance to achieve the required fresh consecration.

So, what keeps us from our rightful possession, besides repentance, willingness to enter in, obedience, and trust? Fear for the many who have lost their faith. Sadly, this is especially true for those in the Faith Community! Woe to him who claims the Christian title, while admonishing Ezekiel’s watchman, disowning his own heritage, and ignoring the voice of the prophets, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the will of the Father.

“Washington believed that if anyone, especially the ‘mere politician,’ worked to undermine religion and morality in the nation, he could not be called a patriot.” ~ Founders’ Bible
Brothers, I believe that if anyone, especially in the “American Church” works to undermine patriotism in this nation, he cannot be called a Christian.

But even if our gospel is veiled , it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them…But we who have this treasure…We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—2 Corinthians 4:3-4,8-9

The gospel can only be veiled in a half-gospel, hyper-grace church. Or, as Bonhoeffer referred to it as the church of “cheap grace”. I cannot imagine a deeper, more penetrating wound to the heart of Christ when I think of the price He paid.

This past Wednesday morning as I was listening to Fishers of Men from the night before, I grew very concerned for my brothers Keith, Derek, and Al in California after hearing about the deluge of torrential rains falling upon them in California. So, I texted them, and in the middle of the text Scott plays this clip from a modern prophet who goes by the name of Joseph Z:

“Now here’s what I want to say about justice, because people have cried out for it, but it’s been mercy that’s held it back…because as justice is beginning to be unleashed, just by sowing and reaping. There’s going to be a rain that falls on the just…and unjust. But here’s the word of the Lord, ‘When the rain falls, you will outrun your enemy in the rain.’ That’s what I see coming.” ~ Joseph Z #GodIsGood!

A Psalm (Heart) & Proverb (Wisdom) a Day Drives the Tyrant Away! PS 5:3 In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. PR 26:7 Like the legs which are useless to the lame, So is a proverb in the mouth of fools.

Sorry if this comes across as cruel or offensive but you will have to take it up with God because Proverbs 26:7 cued the following perfectly. Meet Patricia Atkinson: An electric vehicle owner from rural Alaska found out that owning an EV is less than ideal when she was told it would take four years for her to get a replacement battery pack for her Chevy Bolt. The Con of All Cons!

How did America go from home of the brave…a land of free independent and critical thinkers, to a herd of electric hybrid car owners, obediently wearing masks, voluntarily pumping gene-modifying mRNA injections and boosters into their bodies and the bodies of their children, while dragging them to Drag Queen Story Hours, trans-gendering them, and hating on Trump and loving Zelensky? In other words, how did America, founded by the wisest most moral men to ever build one nation under God, become a nation run by and filled with Proverbs 26:7 fools? Hillsdale College has just come out with a course to answer that very question!

This transformation has brought ideas like transgenderism, identity politics, and global government—which were formerly relegated to the fringes of academia—into the mainstream of American public life. The result of this turn can be seen in the radical gender ideology pushed in our nation’s classrooms, the lawlessness at our border and in many of our cities, and the economic policies that continue to hollow out the American middle class.The American Left: From Liberalism to Despotism

The author and finisher of the American Left is none other than Satan himself…the very same deceiver who managed to infiltrate the church (Jude 1:12) to label and forbid Truth as political, while extolling Social Justice as gospel truth and virtue. I would ask the same group of my brothers who called all men to step up and reclaim their leadership roles in their families, their churches, and their communities back in November, and now declaring “politics” out of bounds in January, how many of their families, churches, and communities are considered in bounds, fair game, and targets in the arena of “politics”? If ALL life were a pizza pie, which slice is politically affected, controlled, and influenced? Every single one. Amen? If Jesus Himself had stayed out of the political discourse of His day, there would have been no need to crucify Him. I chose not to question the “no politics” rule out of respect for the host, whom I love as a brother in Christ. But as iron sharpens Proverbs 27:17 iron, I am compelled to ask respectfully for the scriptural basis for such a rule. It will take a John 17:21 revival and renewal in the church that recognizes, complies with, and bows to only one authority above all others, to purge the Proverbs 26:7 foolishness from ALL seven cultural mountains that the former church has surrendered to the enemy. Are we ready? I believe God is waiting on us…

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. ~ Ephesians 2:1-10      

Are we ready to possess His promises? Are we Joshua-ready to occupy and expand His Kingdom here?

“If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” ~ Joshua 24:15
