The crossroads has become a precipice for this generation

by Dennis Petersen

When the crossroads of decision become a precipice demanding action, only the determined, ‘all in’ warrior overcomers have any hope of seeing God’s ultimate victory.

There are plenty of Scriptural parallels in God’s recorded history of His people to give us ample insights to the challenges of our generation today.  Like God’s gift to the sons of Issachar in first Chronicles 12:32, we desire to have the insight of “understanding the times, to know what Israel – or God’s people today – ought to do.”

In previous episodes of Reclaiming Your Legacy, we’ve seen plenty of encouraging insight the Bible gives us to ‘choose this day to serve God’ as Joshua admonished the successful generation of Israel after the conquest of Canaan.  His call is clear to be courageous warriors like David and his mighty men. We must be active watchmen on the wall for our generation as Ezekiel spells out so clearly. With our Lord’s help, we all must chose to courageously refuse to bow to lies. With the boldness of the Holy Spirit filling us, we can expose demonic deeds of darkness, rather than participate with those who have been deceived.

Time for Righteous Action is NOW – How to pray for God’s Justice

This post includes a Bonus posted as a separate audio file (see below)

1Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

The transcript for the Bonus extension program with expert witnesses is at the end of the main transcript below. Listen to the recording here…

We are in a war. More people than ever are awaking to the reality of that.  And as we do, we realize there are key elements of warfare – especially spiritual warfare – that every soldier must be constantly attentive to. As Jesus trained his 12 and his 70, and his 120 disciples – learning to work in harmony with each other – so, He is training His modern-day warriors to seek God’s direction, to intercede, to boldly speak up… to cooperatively work together under the guidance of the Holy Spirit… to prayerfully and courageously pursue the expanding work of God’s Kingdom, against which the gates of hell cannot prevail.

End of Humanity? Will you equip your loved ones to stand up against Wicked Evildoers?

Did you know there is an official agenda to replace the human race with robots, cyborgs and AI? That’s ‘artificial intelligence.’

As bizarre as that sounded just a few years ago, this agenda has been heavily promoted for decades by a coalition of many of the big-name national and corporate leaders in what is called the World Economic Forum. Their plan is to end the era of humanity and usher in a new era of neo-humanity.  They intend to make people into a blend of man and machine.  As unbelievable as it sounds, they confidently state that our thoughts and emotions will be monitored by AI – artificial intelligence – in order to combat … are you ready for it?… climate change! Is that the world you want for yourself and your children?

The more that the general public learns about this reprehensible plan, the more people are inclined to think that we might be living in the “last days” of this age or era of human history. We’re sure seeing a level of widespread evil in America like nothing since the mass exterminations of the 20th century.  

The Bible tells us to be strong in the Lord… able to resist (stand against) in the evil day… doing everything to stand firm (Eph 6:10-14ff).  Do you get the feeling that this is like divine marching orders for soldiers of Messiah?  This is where we read in Scripture about God’s spiritual weapons of warfare – the full armor of God (Eph 6:14-18). Is God’s Spirit here speaking to cowards who are bowing to worldly lusts and discouraging cares?  Remember, this is written to God’s true church – His Ekklesia – His divinely organic family – not to outsiders of His kingdom.

The problem with a lot of people, both Christians and pagans alike, is that they are inclined to be ruled by fear. Of all people, believers in the risen Messiah, must constantly keep in mind that fear is a spiritual ‘thing.’ It’s a ‘spirit.’ Scripture says that God has not given us a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). Rather than take the time and trouble to be informed, to overcome the ignorance that is leading lots of God’s people to destruction in various ways, their human tendency to fear what they can’t control naturally leads them to various forms of denial or cognitive dissonance.  They either look away from the negative realities of the world that they don’t like, or they allow their minds to disconnect. It’s almost like they go into a kind of mental trance. Claiming they can’t do anything about their future, they rationalize to themselves that they should go along with the governing authorities in their lives, rather than rock the boat. I’m talking about their jobs, their clubs, their governments, … even their religious organizations.  All of those seemingly well-meaning entities can… and will… let us down.  That’s why Scripture proclaims “my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6).” “My people go into exile for their lack of knowledge (Isaiah 5:3). With all the doctrines and dogmas that God’s people receive from their popular media prophets, religious priests and political ‘kings’, how many are diligently following the model of the believers of the town of Berea (Acts 17:10-11).  They were commended because they “searched the Scriptures to see if these things be true.” Was what they were hearing from the Apostle Paul truly based on God’s Word?  They dared to actually “test all things (1 Thessalonians 5:21).”

Many in the Western world have been conditioned by a lifetime of popular, repetitious, religious doctrines that they’ve never taken the time to investigate critically for themselves. Jesus prayed in John 17 for His disciples specifically (John 17:9). That passage is often called our Lord’s high priestly prayer of intercession for His flock of followers. He didn’t pray for the world, but for those whom His Father had given Him. Facing persecution, that’s promised to all who live godly in this world (2 Timothy 3:12), Jesus knew that there were severe trials ahead. That’s why He led the way it’s always been for God’s righteous people living in a hostile, fallen world.  Think of Noah before the Flood.  Think of Moses and the Israelites at the Exodus from Egypt.  Think of Esther, facing all out extermination of God’s people. Jesus actually prayed, “Father, I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the (power of the) evil one (John 17:15).

Every generation of believers for 20 centuries has prayed “Thy kingdom come…” hoping for Messiah’s return. And they’ve suffered grievous tribulations at the hands of many “anti-Christs.” Has the mission assignment from our Master changed? Are we discipling the nations (the ethnos… the people group) that we’ve been delegated to serve with the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18)?  That’s a serious job… reconciling lost people to their Creator, Who sacrificed His only Son to be our Savior.  It’s true that we share the same blessed hope of “His appearing” (Titus 2:13).  But, to put all our hope in a miraculous escape, before the looming disaster ahead destroys the poor souls who are left behind… that could set us up for a terrible disappointment. Nevertheless, He says, “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming (Mat 24:42).”

Many people today are awakening to the realities of how the societies of the whole world are being controlled and conditioned how to think. It’s happening all over the world, at the directions of extremely powerful people.  The “plandemic” of 2020 truly began to expose the depth of nefarious evil, pulling the strings behind the scenes of modern civilization. But their agendas are becoming increasingly exposed as being led by evil entities that most Bible believers would label as demons or the Devil himself. For good reason… Scripture tells us…

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons (1 Timothy 4:1).”

The Apostle John wrote to believers in the first century that, “The whole world lies in the power of the evil one (1 John 5:19).”

“We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.” 1 John 5:19 NKJV

This can be scarry to those who don’t have a knowledgeable view of the world from God’s perspective. Fear is just as crippling to people today as it was to Saul’s army being challenged by Goliath. Yet God providentially prepared, in young David, a confident warrior to give us all an example of how to overcome God’s fear-mongering enemies with what the apostle Paul describes as “the weapons of our warfare” (2 Co 10:4).

We must be clearly aware which god we serve and if our actions synch with our choice.

“To whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are.”

Rom 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

I urge you to watch the video online for free at the following link … and share it with all your friends if you care about them and their loved ones.  Some of them are already hearing about this, and eventually, everyone will see parts of it playing out in front of them, but by then, it might be too late for them to change their direction toward their own destruction. That’s why they need the resources from reliable researchers who are committed believers in Jesus, willing to share the truth. 

THE END OF HUMANITY – As Planned By The Global Leaders  https://rumble.com/v4q7hcq-the-end-of-humanity-as-planned-by-the-global-leaders.html

Stopworldcontrol

Or https://stopworldcontrol.com/endhumanity/

When you watch this very well-produced video report, you’ll see that it’s disturbing… even unsettling. There’s a biblical reason for that. Lost people don’t know they’re lost until they stare into the face of hopelessness or despair.  Could it be that this discussion could open their heart and mind to their absolute need for “the only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord? (Jude 1:25)”

Did you know there is an official agenda to replace the human race with robots, cyborgs and AI? This agenda is being heavily promoted by the World Economic Forum. Their plan is to end the era of humanity and usher in a new era of neo-humanity, in which people are a mix of man and machine. They also state that our thoughts and emotions will be monitored by AI in order to combat climate change. Is that the world you want for yourself and your children?

Ending humanity to ‘save the planet’

Many of us – or our children – have been seeing things in the popular science fiction movies about robots taking over the world and eradicating humanity. But little do we know that this is exactly what is being prepared by today’s global leaders. It’s what they are promoting, developing, financing and calling for, all around the world. They are called globalists, because they essentially idealize the dissolving of independent sovereign nations, and putting ultimate authority over all humans on earth in a single corporate government.

The online collaboration of ideas called “Quora” has many definitions for globalism. They posted the simplest definition of globalization/globalism this way:

The Oligarch plan administrated by the British aristocrats calls for a Great Green Reset with simply only around 1 billion citizen slaves answering to a tiny dictatorship who would be controlling all of what they consider wealth on our planet – gold, $ and papers of ownership.

 A man named Greg Oscar posted about globalism this way:

A group of gangsters in suits who are extremely powerful people that influence governments and corporations to implement a global agenda and control every facet of people’s daily lives. They don’t want unity between people; they thrive on chaos and disorder.

On September 24, 2019, President Trump started his speech before the United Nations General Assembly, telling the global body of world leaders that “the future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots.” Listen to a minute of what he told the world’s leaders at this epic gathering. https://youtu.be/7wJ8tdxDVgI?si=tHaVicMY_8LOh6rK

Didn’t president Trump lay out a clear contrast between globalism and national sovereignty?

The globalists even claim that this is the only way to save the Earth from total collapse. Without exiting the era of mankind and entering into the era of NEO-HUMANITY, the world is doomed, they say. One of their arguments is that humans are the cause of climate change, and must therefore be replaced with artificial alternatives to “save the planet”.

This worldwide reformation is called “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” and is intended to completely digitize every aspect of life on Earth.

The film production of David Sorensen’s excellent online channel, Stop World Control.com is: “THE END OF HUMANITY.” It exposes this global agenda vividly, so there can be no doubt about what the globalists are actively working to achieve. The general public is being too distracted by the challenges of today’s economic and social/political turmoil to even know that this global agenda is being forcefully promoted with massive support from the most powerful organizations worldwide.

This documentary is not just a film that everyone ought to see. This is a sobering reality that will wake up many of our friends who’ve been stuck, listening to main stream media.

Klaus Schwab, founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum, stated during the recent World Government Summit in Dubai:

“The future is already here. It’s coming like a tsunami! This Fourth Industrial Revolution will not only change everything we do, but it will have an impact on who we are.”

It’s unbelievable when you first hear it, but major technological developments are underway to transplant the human personality into robotic carriers, to give man artificial immortality. This is the ultimate dream of the elites: to become immortal.

Robots are already replacing nurses, social workers, psychological assistants, doctors, cashiers, cooks, and even law enforcement officers, in several areas of the world. The first computer chips are already being implanted into humans. The blending of man with machine is a reality. AI is taking the world by storm, replacing millions of human jobs and making human employees seemingly unnecessary.

The horrifying thing is that specifically those sensitive jobs where people need a human touch, true understanding and emotional support are being replaced with robots. Can you imagine being taken care of by a robot in the hospital or nursing home? That’s exactly what is happening. Removing the human experience, which is so precious, beautiful and deep, and replacing it with unfeeling robotic alternatives. We’ve already been set up for it with all the automated self-check-out lines at grocery stores

Inserting thoughts and emotions into everyone

At the same time, technologies are being installed in every nation of the world that will continually record all the thoughts, emotions and dreams of everyone. These technologies even have the ability to insert thoughts and emotions into the population. That is not a conspiracy theory, as it is publicly stated by the former president of Chile, Sebastian Pinera, and by the Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, Ida Auken, former minister of the environment of Denmark.

In Europe, the public ‘School TV’ tells kids how ‘cool’ it is to have a chip in your brain.

Google is organizing symposia declaring how humans will become one with computers, while the CEO of Nokia says that, in a few years, everyone will have their smartphones inside their body. This means that every detail of our lives can be constantly monitored. Meanwhile, the World Economic Forum hosts conferences about ‘brain transparency’, discussing how all our most intimate, personal data will be stored in the cloud and controlled by Big Tech.

All this falls in line with the announcement of the WEF that by 2030, no one will have any privacy. Klaus Schwab says we will have to get used to a society of “full transparency”, where everything we think, feel and dream is monitored.

The film “THE END OF HUMANITY” is a warning to mankind, intended to prevent this nefarious plan and to save the human race, from both eradication and from this extreme form of slavery.

Shortly after the release of this video on StopWorldControl.com, a great grandmother viewer wrote a pathetic comment, attempting to get others to take its message seriously.  She wrote:

“For those of you who say, “we don’t need to “OBEY” these psychopathic narcissists, let me remind you that there are any number of ways that “THEY” Klaus Schwab, Harari, Gates, Fauci, Soros et al have of getting “their TECHNOLOGY INTO YOUR BODIES”. You don’t necessarily have to “line up for the next injection (she called it ‘CONVID QUACCACINE’) to get implants, RFID’S etc.  When it’s nanotechnology being used, it can be put into anything you eat or drink. When these narcissistic psychopaths are already referring to themselves as “BETTER THAN GOD” you should already know that they already have the necessary “technology/medical technology” in place to put whatever they want into our bodies. When these cretins who refer to themselves as “the elites” are already telling us that we are nothing more than “HACKABLE ANIMALS” and the “USELESS CLASS” you can be sure that it’s already too late for humanity.  

In light of all this, do you think Romans chapter one is worth sharing with others now?

Urging your fellow human beings – made in the image of God – to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matt 6:33) – is the first step for any of us to experience “the peace of God that surpasses all comprehension (Phil 4:7).”

Pray about whom God’s Spirit is guiding you right now to invite into this discussion. Then ask them if they would listen to what you share and offer to pray with them for God’s next step in their walk with Him. Then you can be used by God to show them the way in His Word, where they will discover His amazing grace and the only hope for their future – a future where they will participate in the exposure of more darkness and the expansion of Messiah’s kingdom.

The Just Live by Faith

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek (gentile). 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Hearing those words evokes conviction and exposure of those who are lost on a path of destruction, but Psalm 34 reminds us that …

“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed (contrite) in spirit” Ps 34:18.

Psalm 34 strengthens our resolve to keep our eyes on Jesus, no matter what fearful storms assail our journey…

‘I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; the humble shall hear it and rejoice. O magnify the lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. I sought the LORD, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.’ (Ps 34:1-3).

And while you’re in the neighborhood, swing by Psalm 57 where we join David when he fled from Saul in the cave saying…

‘Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in Thee; and in the shadow of Thy wings, I will take refuge, until destruction passes by.  I will cry to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for me. He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who tramples upon me. [Selah] God will send forth His lovingkindness and His truth (faithfulness). Psalm 57:1-3.

And don’t miss one of the greatest promises for God’s people during times of divine judgment on the wicked of a generation… Isaiah 26

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee because he trusts in Thee” … (Isa 26:6) … and finally … “Come, my people, enter into your rooms, and close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while, until indignation runs its course…” (Isa 26:20).

Perilous Times in exile for a lack of knowledge?

How do you restore a fallen country, culture, society?

Prayerful Education of Christians must begin with parents and pastors to restore a fallen country

Is there any doubt that we’re living in “perilous times?”

Proverbs 29:2 says:

“When the righteous are increased (or flourish in number and authority), the people rejoice; But when the wicked (man) rules, the people groan.”

Is it any wonder we’re hearing a lot of groaning these days?  And it’s not so much because of the ordinary stresses of life really, is it?  A lot of our complaining is the direct result of governing over-reach into the private affairs of citizens.  From where does corruption in political government come? Isn’t it from the infection of every nation or organization that is ruled by self-serving leaders?  But the policing part of the public government equation is increasingly necessary only because of the epidemic lack of Godly morality and self-control among the public at large. George Washington, John Adams and others insisted that those two things were absolutely essential for the preservation of our constitutional republic.

A Free society Requires a Righteous People who appoint Righteous Accountable Leaders

Would you agree that the People of American society are able to be the effective core of our civil government, only when we participate in the process of informing, educating, and training our families and fellow citizens to live as the true “We the People?”  But for us as Christians, that raises an even more basic premise. How can we be ‘salt and light’ to civil society, if we are not actively asserting our role in filling our assignments in the body of our Messiah’s Ekklesia?  And by using that word – “Ekklesia” – I’m not talking here about just attending ‘church’ on Sunday.  Yes, it’s true that the Greek word “Ekklesia” is translated in English Bibles as the word church. But we all know that most people think of “church” as the building we go to… or the name of the event we attend on Sundays.  Oh yes, they might think of “church” as the institution of our denomination with all its hierarchy and programs.  But these are not what Jesus said He would “build” when He commended His disciple Peter for the declaration that Jesus is “the Messiah (or Christ), the Son of the living God” (Matt 16:16). 

The “Ekklesia” that Jesus deliberately said HE would build was to be HIS version of a pattern that was well-known in Roman culture of the first century. Caesar, king of Rome, had a system that was well defined 2,000 years ago. After conquering neighboring territories, how did the Empire establish the authority of Roman policies and cultural shaping in new communities? 

In studying the subject, I discovered that ambassadors from Rome would find trusted elders in every locality. Those elders would be trained how Roman society works. They would be assigned to indoctrinate or inculcate Roman customs into the fellow citizens of their own local community. They would function as “an assembly” or “congregation” of local people. And that is exactly the meaning of the word “Ekklesia” – “assembly” or “congregation.”  It was a process of a kind of evangelization and discipleship training on a secular level. They would teach their “assemblies” of people to live like Romans… adopt Roman customs… know and be responsible for following Roman laws. Nothing less than complete transformation was expected of these groups of local assembly leaders …and they were corporately referred to, in the Greek language, as “Ekklesia.” 

Jesus didn’t say “I will build my Synagogue.”  He didn’t say He would build His “religion.” And He didn’t announce to Peter that He was going to build His “temple” or “cathedral” on the man named Peter.  He clearly had something else in mind when He spoke those memorable words… and it wasn’t any of the things that most of us in modern times associate with the word “church.”

Let’s unpack the vital synergy of that assertion.

John Adams, America’s first vice president, serving with President George Washington, has famously been quoted for proclaiming that… “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

We would be fair to observe that to the culture of his day in the late 1700s and early 1800s, in English speaking culture, he was asserting the focus of his statement held godly and righteous people to be responsible for the preservation of our constitutional, republican form of governance.  Knowing the nearly unanimous Christian disposition of the signers of our Declaration of Independence, and how the American constitution was crafted upon the principles of the Holy Bible, is it not clear that our current situation stands almost completely devoid of the…

…Two primary pillars that supported our Republic? 

  1. It takes Christ-honoring voters,
  2. …electing God-fearing representatives.

And both must actively demonstrate their sincere desire to reflect the truth of the Almighty Creator in every aspect of their social order. Without those pillars, you have no means to support our constitutional structure.

If we claim to be followers of the light of truth, but don’t take appropriate actions to inform and defend those around us from the dangers of enemies seeking our destruction, does a righteous judge (Almighty God) hold us accountable for not doing good when we had the opportunity?

This raises the Biblical “watchman” principle of Ezekiel 33. But it takes the concept of being a watchman to a much higher level of responsibility.  You could say that the assignment of being a watchman or a sentry is a civic or military duty.  But at the same time, this passage in Ezekiel leaves no doubt that such a duty for our fellow countryman is a spiritual expectation as well.

Ezekiel heard the word of the LORD that came to him, saying,

“Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows on the trumpet and warns the people, then he who hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his own head. ‘He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he taken warning, he would have delivered his life. ‘But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’ “Now as for you, son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel; so, you will hear a message from My mouth and give them warning from Me. “When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require from your hand. “But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn from his way and he does not turn from his way, he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your life.” Ezekiel 33:2-9.

For Righteousness to regain dominant influence in America, or any society, ‘we the people’ must assertively refresh the spirit that ignited the founders to declare a new nation would be free by declaring their independence from tyrants.

 Just as that premise became the catalyst to fuel the American Revolution, can we really believe that a similar revitalization of Christian society can happen with any less commitment? Should not ‘We the people,’ as representatives of a civil society, also assert ourselves as a body of ‘we the people’ as members of Messiah’s Ekklesia?  How can compromised leadership, on the level of civil government, result from anything less than compromised leadership on the level of Ekklesia government?

And if we take the attitude that we’re somehow exempt from actively influencing and serving our civic community by at least voting, if not serving in active duties, it’s no wonder that many of us who think we are following Jesus, somehow expect professional career people to do all the work of ministry in places we call church.

God’s Word reminds us often to “do good.”

Prov 31:9 “Open your mouth, judge righteously,”

Psalm 34:14 “Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”

Psalm 37:27 “Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever.”

Isaiah 1:17 “learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.”

Eccl 3:12 “I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live;”

1Peter 3:11 “let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.”

Jeremiah 4:22 ““For my people are foolish; they know me not; they are stupid children; they have no understanding. They are ‘wise’—in doing evil! But how to do good they know not.”

Galatians 6:10 “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”

James 4:17 “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.”

We’ve all noticed that the devastating global events of the years following the bio-weapon attack on humanity called ‘Covid-19’ have produced an historic result.  It’s perhaps the most notable awakening in history.  No one denies it now, that the pervasiveness of evil literally controls nearly every aspect of the many systems that govern our modern lives. The governments of all western nations have exposed to their citizens how thoroughly corrupted they are. Their complete subservience to global corporations has devastated public trust. People are fed up. The vast majority are now wise to the disgraceful behavior of politicians who have no moral compass or concern for the safety of humanity. Meanwhile, at least half of the population in America has not only awakened to the total depravity of mainstream media, they have also begun to lose trust in every institution that’s governed by university-educated, immoral, Bible-rejecting haters of anyone who’s not part of their modern aristocracy.

To understand better just how desperately corrupted is our U.S. system of justice, including many policy-makers in the DOJ, FBI, the courts and their related agencies, just consider the plight of cattle rancher, Ammon Bundy. 

 His 5-minute recap of what his family has gone through to defend his constitutional civil rights as a businessman and land owner in these united states is appalling. Listen to his testimony in the bonus segment of today’s broadcast at Reclaim Your Legacy.com, where you’ll search for the title “A Free Society Requires a righteous people…” at: https://youtu.be/J1rJogfCJdM?si=NSQcVU98WXR0V-ep

Most Christian leaders in institutional churches today do not take the time to publicly stand up for righteousness and regularly exhort their parishioners to be even minimally informed on matters of this kind.  If they did, they would be sufficiently equipped to teach their children how to maintain a society governed by the precepts of the fear of God. We cannot expect that condition to change unless we urge our leaders to be informed and to live by clear Biblical principles.

Can it be possible that God is stirring the pot… disturbing the apathetic complacency of many of His children… challenging them to do the uncomfortable tasks of discipling a new generation of world-changers?

10 Requirements for Turning America

February 22, 2024 – Give Him 15  https://www.givehim15.com/post/february-22-2024

Pastor Dutch Sheets shared a profound message on his daily “Give Him 15” podcast.

Larry Tomczak was born again during the Jesus Movement of the 60s and 70s. He and I would certainly picture the mavericks of that era who were “rounded-up” and led to “independence.” (See yesterday’s post here to read The “Mavericks” Are Coming.) In a recent article, Larry speaks of his dream of a transformed America, and the 10 requirements for turning our nation around. Here are Larry’s 10 points and explanations:

  1. “Reconsecrate ourselves to the Great Commission given us by Jesus. The Pilgrims prioritized this in the original Mayflower Compact – to proclaim the ‘gospel of the kingdom’ (not some ‘He Gets Us’ distortion!) to see lives transformed, not merely affirmed, by the power of the living God.
  2. “Renounce and reject complacency. This has brought about the decline and demise of civilizations throughout history. We must repent and return to the values that made us great in the first place, refusing to succumb to the seduction of affluence and leisure entertainment as substitutes for hard work. 
  3. “Cast off D.E.I. (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) mandates. These criteria for our institutions are inherently racist, giving people preferences and positions that should belong to achievers applying themselves to merit advancement. Our nation affords ‘equal opportunity for all’ who are willing and able to work for it!
  4. “Replace destructive Marxist, Globalist elements. These have poisoned our government, schools, media, and corporate boardrooms. In their places, we must put leaders of integrity and conviction, mirroring those of our truly great and revered statesmen and stateswomen. Though they, like all of us, had flaws, they deserve honor because of their overall character and achievements.
  5. “Put an end to propaganda and promotion of unbiblical socialism. We must return to a Constitutional Republic that has undergirded us successfully for close to 250 years – longer than any nation in world history. Anti-American activists are entitled to their opinions, but I agree with former Prime Minister of England, Margaret Thatcher, who said: ‘The problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.’(1) Check out our unsustainable $34 trillion debt!
  6. “Accept the sacred responsibility to expose and eradicate tyranny. We must replace oppressive government in all its forms and contend for freedom. Let us take seriously the warning of President Ronald Reagan: ‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling them what it was once like in America when men were free.’(2) 
    1. Note… do you find many older saints already beginning to reflect that forecast?
  7. “Pastors once again must arise to the urgency of the hour. Just as in colonial America, they must courageously lead the way to embrace the directive of Jesus to be ‘salt’ (holding back decay), accept the responsibility to equip their congregations with relevant truth, and refuse to be silent in our current cultural battle. May they heed the sobering words of pastor/martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who stood against Nazism in a similar situation. ‘Silence in the face of evil is evil itself. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak, is to speak. Not to act, is to act.’(3) We must reject fear of man and follow in the footsteps of Billy Graham, who stood openly against segregation, Apartheid, same-sex ‘marriage,’ and nuclear expansion, telling us, ‘Courage is contagious!’
    1. Note… though many across the country might be discouraged because of the cowardice displayed by their church leaders during the plandemic, it’s encouraging to see how that very lack of godly leadership is causing a new remnant to arise… even to start new congregations… new Ekklesias that are earnestly seeking to embrace the virtues of our Pilgrim forefathers.
  8. “Unapologetically affirm man/woman marriage and the nuclear family. ‘One man and one woman’ is the explicit design for this sacred institution recognized worldwide and honored for thousands of years as the divinely ordained foundation of a stable society. Biology and science have recognized male (XY chromosomes) and female (XX chromosomes) genders throughout history, so we’ll simply stay the course and stay safe from ‘Woke’ moral insanity and societal instability.
    1. Note… inherently, this axiom for reclaiming the legacy of principle ideals that American was founded upon… rests solidly on the indestructible foundation of the truth of the Genesis Record of Creation and the Flood. The inerrancy of Scripture and the truth of Biblical Creation must be fundamental to the principle scientific demand to “test ALL things, and hold fast what is TRUE.” The truth can be established because of the primary revelation of Romans 1:20 which proclaims that everything God made clearly shows his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature – so all men are without excuse.
  9. “Sound the alarm and stop the massive invasion of law-breaking foreigners into America. Millions of cartel-driven illegal aliens are disregarding our established immigration laws to unlawfully secure healthcare, food, housing, education, costly benefits and privileges at taxpayer expense. THIS MUST STOP IMMEDIATELY BY EXECUTIVE ORDER (not by Congressional debate). America represents 4% of the world’s population, and we cannot allow this unprecedented and unmitigated disaster to bring about our country’s collapse!
    1. Note… this cornerstone of national sovereignty and existence is championed by rational humans, no matter what is their political or religious persuasion. If you’re part of a Christian congregation that does not embrace this, you must ask yourself what good reason do you have not to change that status or find a new congregation that firmly and publicly endorses that position?
  10. “Expose as demagoguery the leftist tactic of regularly dismissing valid opinions and perspectives as ‘destroying democracy,’ ‘racist,’ and ‘authoritarian tyranny.’ Traditional conservatives, Christians, pro-lifers, and patriotic Americans are slandered as ‘right-wing extremists,’ while government agencies are weaponized to run roughshod over basic civil liberties, censor free speech, violate the Constitution, and use Soviet-style kangaroo courts to indict political opponents (so they can’t run for office). These agencies and tactics represent America’s real threats and must be exposed! 

If enough of us who love America stand in solidarity with these 10 points, we can trust God to successfully bring His people through the conflicts ahead.  Every flawed and corrupted institution of man or works of carnal wisdom that CAN be shaken… WILL be shaken.  But many Scriptures confirm with Psalm 37:18-20… “The LORD knows the days of the blameless and their inheritance will be forever. They will not be ashamed in the time of evil; and in the days of famine, they will have abundance. But the wicked will perish… they vanish – like smoke they vanish away.”

 Freedom-loving, patriotic, traditional Americans are still the majority. And though we may not control the levers of power, there’s still hope if we repent, pray, meditate in His promises and proclaim His Word as we act courageously to turn America around.

Pray with me:

Father, thank You for seasoned and bold leaders like Dutch Sheets, Larry Tomczak, and Eric Metaxis. Bless their families and ministries with great favor, health, and provision. Use them greatly as they labor to see America transformed; we share their dreams and agree with the needed changes they lay before us.

We ask for a reconsecration in the church to the Great Commissions given in Mark 16 and Matthew 28, proclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom. We renounce complacency and laziness, and ask for an awakening of passion. Give us Your heart for the lost, for truth, and for justice.

We pray against all forms of racism and mistreatment. A true revival that changes millions of hearts will include a revival of compassionate and sacrificial love. Give us this. Break the influence of Marxism, socialism, globalism, wokism, and other anti-biblical philosophies invading our nation. Awaken the “mavericks” to the insanity of these dogmas.

Transform our government. Remove those who desire to weaken us. Help us close our borders and minimize the damage. Break the back of the wicked forces energizing this evil. Expose the evil distortion of truth, law, and justice in America.

And awaken the church. Forgive us for not being salt and light to our nation. Convict leaders of their silence regarding truths in Your Word. Break the fear of man off them and help them find their voices. Motivate them to be the watchmen You have called them to be, and to sound the alarm. We ask all of this in the name of Jesus. Amen.


The spirit that prompted President Abraham Lincoln’s famous wartime address aptly describes the spirit prompting today’s watchmen to make a solemn declaration of commitment.  As he said, “we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Indeed… a new birth of freedom can only arise from the hearts of today’s patriots who are willing to boldly declare their reliance on Almighty God to awaken and restore the gift of freedom in this generation.  That’s why, every chance we have, we should boldly make…

Our decree:

“We declare that a great awakening is coming to the church of America, and to America itself.”

Now, let’s listen to the testimony of rancher, Amon Bundy. If you know anyone who doubts the fact that our government has long been rogue, remember that God’s prophet says “MY people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6). Perhaps this knowledge will turn them from continuing their blinded path to destruction. This is the link to Ammon Bundy’s report: https://youtu.be/J1rJogfCJdM?si=NSQcVU98WXR0V-ep

To learn about the “Baby Cyrus” case that Ammon Bundy refers to in his recording, you can access the webpage that has been made by my friend, Diego, who is the grandfather of Baby Cyrus. Go to: https://freedomman.ws/cyrus/story/

This takes you directly to the 90-minute presentation given by Diego Rodriguez (Baby Cyrus’s grandfather) on May 10th, 2023, about Government Subsidized Child Trafficking.  It not only describes the entire Baby Cyrus Story, but explains the reasons WHY Baby Cyrus was kidnapped in the first place. This EYE-OPENING video presentation can change your paradigm completely and can save you and or a loved family member from every suffering the pain and anguish of having your child kidnapped by CPS! (The presentation begins at the 4:10 mark, if you’d like to skip the introduction.)

Why Christians must Engage the Culture to Influence voting in America?

The fact that the battle to preserve our society of liberty is a spiritual war against demonic principalities in high places is more evident now than ever before in our lifetime.  The question is – will God’s people who are called by His name not only humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, but will they be the preserving salt of influence on our society or will they continue to be ‘trampled’ by society’s mountains of influence?

The Power of Keeping People in Darkness (ignorant)

The gross darkness of ignorance that prevails in today’s world results from one thing: deliberate re-education.  Historic disciples of Marx, Lenin and Mao know very well that society-wide ignorance depends on the perversion of true history, and the censoring of moral truth found in God’s Word.  Paul insisted that Christ followers “prove all things.” Why?  Faith (in God, the Bible or all truth) comes by hearing the Word of God! Without a clear and spoken declaration of relevant, Christ glorifying words (Rhema) of God’s timeless truth, people are lost in confusion, deception, and pop culture entertainment. It’s all devoid of substance that challenges us to seek God.

Is God raising up a praying remnant to refresh our generation with God’s deliverance?

Just days after a distinctively special gathering of God’s people, earnestly expressing repentance and intercession for this generation, I was invited to watch something that I absolutely must share with you. It sounded like nothing I ever heard before. And that’s because our current context is a time like none of us have ever experience before. But, even more, it’s because witnessing the broken, heart-felt contrition of a large number of fellow believers from all over the world in a single public gathering is truly unique.

Hundreds of people gathered for this Day of Repentance in D.C. on Jan 31st and many more watched online. According to co-leaders Jim Garlow and Tony Perkins, “God showed up.”

If you’d like to watch a replay of the National Gathering of Prayer and Repentance, you can do so here: https://ngpr.org/.

Today, I pray the Lord will help me share with you at least a taste of this exceptional prayer time. I’ll say right from the start, that if you have even a single hour in this coming week to give yourself to praying with others to sincerely call out to God for help in our national time of need, you WILL be profoundly rewarded with renewed hope, and invigorated to invite others to a more intimate time with your God and Savior, Jesus, our Messiah and LORD.

Lincoln’s 1863 Prayer & Fasting Proclamation

Do you remember ever reading or hearing President Abraham Lincoln’s proclamation? Though it’s over 160 years in our past, How well does it apply to our nation today? Hear an excerpt of the text of Lincoln’s Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day, in March of 1863:

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown.

But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”

 Reference: https://www.leaderu.com/orgs/cdf/onug/lincoln.html

Every one of us who recognizes the desperate and seemingly hopeless condition of our world and nation in our time, can be tempted to fear, to extreme grief, and even cowardice and capitulation to the enemy.

Pastor Jim Garlow spoke some of the sobering realities of our time of global crisis.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn speaking at 2024 D.C. Prayer & Repentance gathering

Rabbi author of the book, The Return of the Gods, Jonathan Cahn, was introduced by Pastor Jim Garlow to give a brief teaching to set the tone of the five-hour meeting. If you haven’t yet read that book, I think you’ll want to get a copy as soon as you possibly can.

Tony Perkins praying for congressmen 2024 Repentance gathering

After the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, reminded us of the prayer of Israel’s King Solomon for wisdom in the face of his challenging time, a slate of several dozen members of our nation’s civic leadership, particularly our congress, without formal introduction, were given time to give their sincere prayers of repentance and need. It’s fascinating to listen to the sincerity and brokenness of these men and women.

After that, time was given to several different types of group leaders. First were pastors who have stood boldly up to tyrannical persecution. You might recognize some of them for the courage they’ve shown to the world in recent times of unlawful government suppression, like Canada’s pastor Artur Pawlowski.

Many of those who prayed at this special prayer meeting that was hosted by the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., have suffered and experienced God’s miraculous deliverance from seemingly hopeless situations. A whole string of young people in various parts of society were also given time to pray on behalf of their generation.

Significant time was given to let representatives from many of the countries of the world pray on behalf of their nations. This was precious to me, just knowing some of the difficult situations that the people of those lands are enduring. It’s not just the US that has been enduring painful fruit of evil and tyrannical oppression.

When you take the time to actually sit down, listen and personally join in with the prayers of your brothers and sisters in Christ – even for a recorded, Spirit-anointed prayer meeting – it’s indisputably amazing to sense the presence of God, and be stirred in your innermost being with the reality that He is moving on people all over the world to call out to God for His mercy and intervention for His deliverance and salvation.

After listening and joining these many fellow believers in prayer, in the very heart of Washington D.C., I’m sure you will sense, as I did, that God IS not only stirring His contrite servants to voice their dependency on Him, but He’s also raising up a generation of courageous watchmen and warriors to stand for righteousness and expose the works of darkness. And that’s just the kind of providential intervention that will confound the works of the devil and all his minions. He’s raising up Daniels to influence rulers. He’s positioning Esthers to intervene and in the complex workings of governments. He’s preparing ordinary people to use their God-given gifts and positions of influence to change the battleground for a different outcome than our adversaries have planned.  

There’s a tremendous difference between a generation of apostasy and a generation of humble ‘Image-Barrers’ of their Creator who cry out for God’s deliverance… even if it’s just a remnant.

As evil and dark as the horrible things being done by perpetrators of the enemy in our world ARE, yet God is using his humble children to stand against the wicked deceivers. That’s why we must not faint or give up in distressing times. This prayer and repentance gathering is a beacon of hope for us to share with others. Too many people that you and I know, don’t even know that such a meeting even happened. And they won’t ever know about it until you tell them.

Though we see all around us, what seems like an overwhelming ocean of destructive evil and godlessness, ours is unlike the time when God’s prophet Ezekiel had to prophecy a message of complete judgment and destruction upon Jerusalem.  He said:

“And I searched for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found no one. Thus, I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; their way I have brought upon their heads,” declares the Lord God. (Ezekiel 22:30-31).

God was looking for intercessors then but found none.

He’s looking for intercessors now, and many are rising up in humble repentance. As they are hearing like what Isaiah heard,

“Who shall I send and who will go for us?”  Isaiah replied, “Here am I, send me!” (Isaiah 6:8).

There is a reason for the big difference between then (in the time of ancient Israel) and now. By His resurrection, Jesus has been given all authority in heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18) and He has given to us His awesome authority over all the power of the enemy. He is still building His assembly, His family, His Ekklesia… and as they receive His authority and use it against the illegitimate powers raised up against the knowledge of God (2 Corinthians 10:5), they will prevail over the gates of Hell and over all the deceptions of the evil rulers of this age.

Watchmen are Assigned to Warn their Community of Danger

By Dennis Petersen

Did you hear about the horrific Texas traffic accident involving over a hundred vehicles because of surprising glare ice on the road? A half dozen people died and over a hundred were injured, some with life debilitating injuries.

Now, if you had the knowledge that the road up ahead was so dangerous that it could cause the death of everyone going that way, wouldn’t you do everything in your power to stop everyone from rushing toward their destruction? Of course, you would. Who wouldn’t?  That’s just common humanitarian consideration for our fellow man. You’d have good reason to question the ethics or sanity of anyone who wouldn’t do that, wouldn’t you?

Have Confidence in God’s Justice for His Nation as His-story is being made #318

By Dennis Petersen

With spiritual eyes, it is clear that the outrageous corruption of politicians is demonically inspired. So, how are the righteous to respond? The widespread deception of the news media is demonically inspired. The open dishonesty that has prevailed in this country’s indoctrination institutions that we call public education is demonically inspired. All this, now publicly obvious distortion of reality is crystal-clear evidence of a long-term war between Truth and lies. It can be a discouraging discovery of the spiraling conflict of good and evil – destroying liberty and increasing smothering captivity. It’s the very confrontation of devilish attacks against the kingdom of God, the King of all kings.

How are the righteous to respond?

Awakening to the Reality of Spiritual Warfare

episode #324

More and more people in our country and in the world are awakening to the reality that we are all on the stage of the greatest spiritual battleground imaginable. 

As the darkness of evil becomes increasingly invasive, the brightness of the Light of God’s Truth and Righteousness becomes all the more apparent to those who have eyes to see. Unfortunately, we realize from recent history that people who have been pickled in mass-media deception and coddled by a public indoctrination mindset that coddles the stubbornness to cling to their self-serving idolatry and wicked passions… those people are often too hardened to hear God’s invitation to repent and receive the peace of eternal life.
