How must God’s People be a Calming Influence in a Society filled with Fear?

There are lots of things I’ve learned, as I grew into adulthood and fatherhood.  One that sticks out to me seems to be missed by a lot of people who have not learned yet how to avoid being dominated by fear.  The present crisis in our world really seems to accent this fact.  Simply stated it’s this: “what we don’t understand, we tend to fear.” It’s pretty common, isn’t it?  If you don’t understand how to use a dangerous tool – like a knife or a gun – it’s perfectly natural to keep your distance from that tool because of an indescribable fear.  Once you learn how to use the potentially dangerous tool correctly, you still maintain a healthy respect for the tool, but you don’t have a psychotic fear of it anymore.

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.

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?

With all the opinions and disinformation flying around, how do you know who to trust?  Even if you’ve abandoned the propaganda of main stream network media – which you should have done long ago by now – we all need careful discernment as we navigate the many channels of religious programming and truth-telling sources on the Internet. I’ll share some that I find informative and Biblically trustworthy at the end of this episode (and at today’s post on the Reclaim Your Legacy dot com website).

In Psalm 20:7 King David says, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” 

In today’s American society, you could say some believe in the flashy “chariots” of main stream public media, public education and big-network news analysts – those are the carriers of disinformation and propaganda.  Others put their trust in the opinions of strong, influential politicians and celebrities. What will we declare is the solid rock of our trust?

Will you agree with King David’s declaration of Psalm 31:6?

“I have hated those who regard useless idols; But I trust in the LORD.”

Are we willing to abide by such a strong commitment as the “man with a heart after God?” Can we say that we hate the people who listen to (regard) and bow their allegiance to the idolatries of our culture?

The challenge we all face now is how to apply that principle of “trusting in the Lord.” It does require child-like faith to trust in the Lord, as we mature in Christ, but it’s much more than that. It’s imperative that we follow – actually do – the commands of our King – Jesus Christ. That way we can become increasingly responsive to the momentary guidance of His Holy Spirit. He promised He will never leave us or disown us, right?  This requires abiding – being at home with and constantly living – in our Lord’s Word so that we can become set apart – sanctified – by that word just as Jesus interceded for us and as He continues to do (John 17:17). There are so many exhortations in the empowering scriptures of the new testament that reinforce this directive for us – His saints (set apart ones).  One is at the end of Peter’s second letter.

“Beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18

It’s clearly a life-long process of God’s continuing transformation as we refuse to be conformed to this world” and, rather, “be transformed by the renewing of our mind, so that we may prove what is that good… and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). This means we need to think – to use our minds – in discovering the “mind of Christ (1 Co. 2:16).” That’s the way we leave behind the worldly way of thinking like a “natural man.”  Then we can increasingly embrace “spiritual” thinking so that we can rightly judge and discern all things (1 Corinthians 2:14-15). It takes daily conscious effort to reject the thinking of the corrupted natural man. Listening to God’s faith-building word is the purifying factor that renews our mind.

More and more God-fearing people in America are beginning to awaken to a reality they didn’t give much thought to in the past. They’re finding that engagement in discussion and activism in the marketplace of public policy ideas is a patriotic imperative for all law-abiding Americans. Do you think you make an effort to obey the laws of the land? If you do, how do you think those laws are made? Are you happy with increasing laws and bureaucratic regulations that make your life increasingly pressured by costs you didn’t agree to? How do you feel about laws that impose ungodly immoral values on your children and grandchildren? If the government decides to re-settle illegal aliens with possible criminal records into your neighborhood, it’s likely too late to do anything about it. If they offer tax breaks or rewards to your neighbors for snitching on you because you host a Bible study in your living room, are you going to start researching how you can change the government regulations then?

Thomas Jefferson said,

“A well-informed citizenry is the best defense against tyranny.”

Do you have a copy of the Bible handy? Do you know what it says about our part in civic law and order?

Do you have a copy of the US constitution handy? Do you know what it says about how the government is to be regulated to protect the rights of “we the people?”

18th Century British member of parliament, Edmund Burke, wrote:

“All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.”

“Why do the nations rage and the people plot in vain. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed.”

Do you know where that question is found in the Bible? Do you know what the Bible says is God’s response to those plots of nations against the Lord?

“He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. Now, therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.” (Psalm 2:1-4, 12; ESV)

Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance.”

2 Chronicles 7:13-14 “If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

How many people quote the last part of that Scripture without recognizing God’s sovereignty and the whole plan when He even sends pestilence among His people as a result of their waywardness and sin? And yet, God in His mercy, guarantees that He will forgive their sin when they humble themselves and pray, and seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways… and God will do His part?

Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.”

How much is that concept prominent in our thinking about what’s happening in our world today?

Luke 7:35 “Wisdom is justified by all her children”

Proverbs 15:2 “The tongue of the wise makes knowledge acceptable, but the mouth of fools spouts folly.”

John 16:12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.”

Jesus made it clear, that sometimes in our maturing process through the Holy Spirit, we’re not ready to receive the things that God has for us.

Psalm 31:15 “My times are in your hand; rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!”

Proverbs 28:1 “The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.”

Why is that?  Could it be due to being informed?

Jeremiah 4:22 could easily apply to many of God’s people in American churches today: “For My people are foolish, they have not known Me. They are silly children, and they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.”

In Romans 15:4 Paul tells us “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”

Does God’s Word give us counsel on today’s leadership crisis?

In the providence of God working through His people down through history, there have been several notable turning points when Satan inspired illegitimate subversions to God’s anointed plan for leadership of the people of God. We might think of Absalom’s rebellion to take the crown of his father, King David, but there is another incident that gets only little attention. It happened years later when king David was about to die in his old age. And it was the handsome younger brother of Absalom who decided he should be king instead of his father’s chosen son, his half-brother, Solomon.

His name was Adonijah. Some of Israel’s influential and trusted leaders (Joab, one of David’s leading military commanders, and Abiathar the priest) aided the treasonous conspiracy. For a short time, it appeared publicly that the people were celebrating the dishonest supplanting of the kingship by Adonijah. But then, the royal family and the faithful officials of David’s kingdom assertively installed the truly chosen leader of the people, King Solomon. It appeared for a brief time that Israel had two kings. And it didn’t take long for the public perception to change. They finally saw that an attempted insurrection had been reversed by God’s righteously ordered choice for their nation’s king.

Paul consoles believers with a particular instruction in Romans 16, writing: “I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. And the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” Romans 16:9-10

Most of us Bible-believing Christians have no problem believing what the prophet Daniel said, “Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever, for wisdom and power belong to Him. It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men and knowledge to men of understanding. It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things…” Daniel 2:20-22

America has no king but “we the people.” We understand that. But we have no reason not to believe that God sovereignly orchestrates the rise and the fall of heads of state like the head of America’s executive branch of government – the president of the United States. And regardless how corrupt the political parties have become; the one sacred cherished constitutional guarantee of our republic has always been the confident trust of our citizens in the fairness and honesty of our free elections.

I have two questions for you. First – If the choice of the American electoral system for the presidency is fraudulently usurped by an illegitimate criminal, in secret conspiracy with foreign enemies of the nation’s sovereignty, do you believe that God is a party to fraud?

My next question for you to think about is more personal. By what standard could a law-abiding citizen justify his own affirmation, backing, or acceptance of an illegitimate usurper being shielded by a corrupt and complicit league of dishonest scoundrels, who are in open coalition with outside enemies to dismantle our nation’s sovereignty?

Do you really want to put yourself in the position of a weak-kneed coward, giving consent to an illegitimate pretender as the executive officer of the most powerful nation in the world?

Do not think that you’re being innocent in what is evil when you concede to an illegitimate conspiracy that has overtaken your peers through propaganda.  God has no part in it. And neither should you if you claim to uphold righteousness.

Ephesians 5:11 “Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them.”

Matthew 10:26 “But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all.”

Isn’t it revealing to see how clearly God is exposing the utter futility of corrupted governments and elite powers in earthly dominions?  His people are rising in concerted intercession. Tens of millions of God-fearing citizens are interceding to Almighty God in this country and in other countries. They are declaring God’s truth – shining light on this world’s evil darkness. Are we seeing that the enemy’s works are about to be exposed on a scale that many of us have prayed for over years of intercession for our generation?

We may not know or understand all the ways that God’s providence can turn around what looks like a hopeless situation when wicked and ungodly rulers are ignoring God and oppressing His people.  But God, in His mercy, confirms by His prophet Amos that… “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). And His prophets have emphatically and unanimously reaffirmed that treasonous fraud will not sustain an illegitimate presidency of the United States of America. Indeed, if the reestablishment of our true constitutional republic is publicly revealed, we will be in for a whole new chapter in this country’s history. In God’s providence, interceding patriots will see the dawning of a new reformation. The long-awaited harvest depends on the sovereign outpouring of God’s Spirit for a 3rd Great Awakening. Millions of souls drawn to Jesus Christ, seated on the throne of heaven, will transform a new younger generation as He brings all His enemies under His footstool.

The 59th chapter of Isaiah seems alarmingly accurate in describing our wayward nation today.

But insight and mercy in this prophetic word give us hope.

1 Listen! The LORD’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call.

2 It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away

and will not listen anymore.

3 Your hands are the hands of murderers, and your fingers are filthy with sin.

Your lips are full of lies, and your mouth spews corruption.

4 No one cares about being fair and honest. The people’s lawsuits are based on lies.

They conceive evil deeds and then give birth to sin.

Verse 7 exposes more… Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder.

They think only about sinning. Misery and destruction always follow them.

8 They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good…

9 So there is no justice among us, and we know nothing about right living.

We look for light but find only darkness. We look for bright skies but walk in gloom…

12 For our sins are piled up before God and testify against us.

Yes, we know what sinners we are.

13 We know we have rebelled and have denied the LORD. We have turned our backs on our God.

We know how unfair and oppressive we have been, carefully planning our deceitful lies.

14 Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found.

Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed.

15 Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked.

The LORD looked and was displeased to find there was no justice.

16 He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed.

So, he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.

17 He put on righteousness as his body armor and placed the helmet of salvation on his head.

He clothed himself with a robe of vengeance and wrapped himself in a cloak of divine passion.

18 He will repay his enemies for their evil deeds. His fury will fall on his foes.

He will pay them back even to the ends of the earth.

19 In the west, people will respect the name of the LORD; in the east, they will glorify him.

For he will come like a raging flood tide driven by the breath of the LORD.

20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion to buy back those in Israel who have turned from their sins,” says the LORD.

21 “And this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit will not leave them, and neither will these words I have given you. They will be on your lips and on the lips of your children and your children’s children forever. I, the LORD, have spoken!

Psalm 97:2 reminds us that “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.”

Let God’s Word revive our hope when darkness seems to be extinguishing the light. The light will prevail.

The illegitimately installed administration has swiftly reaffirmed its intent to marginalize, if not criminalize all the patriots who do not agree with their tyrannical agenda to complete the deconstruction of the freedoms, values, and fundamental principles of America’s founders and our constitution. They intend to ‘re-educate’ the opponents of their Marxist ideology. But they underestimate the resolve of the remnant of patriots who dare to persevere with their convictions.

Like Egypt’s pharaoh in Moses’ time, the national leaders of today’s world are bowing in lockstep to the demonic pagan influence of the World Economic Forum. If you haven’t followed the many knowledgeable patriot warriors commenting regularly on the Brighteon and Frank Speech channels online, you’ll be in for many shocking surprises. The wickedness of very wealthy influencers could not be more obviously demonic when you actually see and hear what they’re saying to their followers – and the main stream reports almost none of it. They are determined to “Reset” their “New World Order” by 2030… even if it means collapsing the economies of most of the nations and murdering millions more with even more planned epidemics. The biggest is the pandemic of fear, and it’s all generated by propaganda. But don’t cave in to it.

Remember Mordecai’s words to Esther in Esther 4:13-14.

Esther 4:13 “Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: “Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?”

Millions are praying like never before. Jesus said that the wheat and the “tares” (weeds) will grow up together until the reaper puts in the sickle to reap the harvest at the end. As the darkness grows darker, the Light grows brighter. Things are shaping up for an awakening of souls to eternal life that will be glorious.

Let’s not conform to the world of cowards who are fearing the gloom of national judgment. Indeed, if that were our expectation, we should be preparing today for the world to fall into a terrifying age of darkness. Why not look for the hints that God is raising up a new generation of warriors?  By God’s grace and with our help, they will be equipped to rebuild the ancient foundations of truth. They will provide restorative authority of Christ’s Holy Spirit to overcome the confused insanity of the enemies of God.

Jesus promised in Luke 12:2-3, “The time is coming when everything that is covered up will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all. Whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be shouted from the housetops for all to hear!”

Therefore, when we see our beloved country being stolen, defiled and “fundamentally transformed” as it is right now, right-thinking Americans feel compelled to defend her. But how? World Net Daily editor, David Kupelian provides good insight at the link below, from which these points came.

In every area of life, Americans must bear up with grace and dignity to fight the good fight. Citizens, the ultimate sovereigns in America’s unique constitutional system, may be tempted to “drop out of politics.” We must do the opposite. We must vigorously exercise our sacred rights of voting, free speech, free association, freedom of worship, and to “petition the government for a redress of grievances” in every legal and moral way.

Unlike virtually all other nations, the essence of America is not a common ethnicity but a common spirit – a grateful, moral, entrepreneurial, freedom-loving, generous, essentially Christian spirit, which needs to burn more brightly now in America than ever.

No real and lasting victory is possible for America without a genuine spiritual revival. Each of us needs, as Christ commanded, to “Let [our] light … shine before men,” always praying that we can wage the battle righteously. And even praying for our enemies.

Pastor Dutch Sheets gives us wise counsel in his “Give Him 15” prayer guide for January 22, 2021: (https://www.givehim15.com/post/january-22-2021)

Remove from your heart all unbelief that God cannot cleanse our nation.

  Ask Him for mercy to those who will repent. God loves them all.

Continue to ask God for righteous leaders.

Ask Him to release a great awakening to the earth.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, there is indeed a weariness on our nation. The last few months have been difficult, confusing, and disheartening. Many have grown more cynical; others have become disillusioned. Division in our nation has intensified. It does, indeed, seem that truth has fallen in the streets.

And yet, You are showing many that You’re going to cleanse our nation. We believe this has already begun. You are exposing so much. We ask You to continue this. Give grace and mercy to those who repent and turn from their deceitful ways, but whatever it takes, please cleanse us from this corruption. And we continue to ask for the corruption in this past election to be exposed until it is clear to all what really took place. Then bring Your solution.

And finally, Lord, we ask You for this Third Great Awakening, which we know is coming. Pour it out on America, and also around the world. We ask for 1 billion souls to be saved, and for entire nations to be transformed. May America be a recipient of this revival and also be used as a messenger of Your gospel to the ends of the earth. In the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, we pray, amen.

Bonus Segment

It you want to stick around, let me follow up with our theme today… about ‘having confidence in God’s justice for His Nation as His-story is being made. After all, history truly is our Creator’s ongoing saga of his sovereign providence… it’s “His Story.”

World Net Daily editor, David Kupelian, wrote an editorial in January 2021 that I thought you’d like to hear. It’s titled “The secret to saving America, – how to fight the good fight without losing your soul.” Get the link in today’s transcript at ReclaimYourLegacy.com.  January 14, 2021 WND https://www.wnd.com/2021/01/secret-saving-america/   It opens with a timely Scriptural command for all of us to heed.

“… become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom ye are seen as lights in the world …” –Philippians 2:15

Writing at the threshold of the shift of power in America under the fraudulent control of avowed Marxists, David starts out summarizing observations that affect us all.

The United States of America is in the throes of a full-scale revolution. The incoming administration, which openly promises to transform America, rewrite her Constitution and “reimagine” all of her bedrock institutions, is being heralded by a shockingly totalitarian censorship campaign targeting everyone in opposition from Donald J. Trump on down.

But this revolution is not new. For decades, our nation has been under covert, slow-motion assault by what we cryptically call “the far Left,” a religious-political movement fundamentally at war with both Christianity and America.  The Left has relentlessly pursued its goal, as Barack Obama put it, of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Though President Trump fought mightily against this tide for four years, tirelessly pursuing a pro-life, pro-religious freedom, pro-Constitution, pro-America agenda, as of today the revolutionaries are wildly ascendent.

Consider that in the past year the radical Left – with whose cause Big Media, Big Tech, Big Education, Big Hollywood and the entire Democrat Party totally identify – has succeeded in (several shocking realities – I say these should be obvious clues to anyone that their agenda is a demonic rebellion to Almighty God. So, what has the left accomplished in 2020?):

* indicting the freest, most welcoming and least racist nation on earth as irredeemably racist;

* inciting violent Marxist revolutionaries to riot, vandalize, loot and burn America’s major cities;

* abandoning their former “safe, legal and rare” stance on abortion in favor of wanton celebration of late-term abortion up to the moment of birth and beyond;

* encouraging innocent children to irreversibly ruin their lives by chemically (and sometimes surgically) “transitioning” to the opposite sex – a scientific impossibility;

* using the COVID pandemic as a cover for imposing unprecedented totalitarian control over Americans; and

* gaslighting an entire nation by perpetrating the most wide-ranging, egregious and in-your-face election fraud in U.S. history while pretending disenfranchised American voters who simply want a fair and impartial investigation are the crazy ones, “trying to steal the election from Joe Biden.”

And that’s just for starters.

As America’s once-great middle class becomes crushed through endless COVID lockdowns, a wealthy and privileged globalist elite is not only growing ever richer and more powerful, but also strategically deploying COVID as a pretext for engineering what they call a “Great Reset” of the world – replacing capitalism with socialism. This is neither conspiracy theory nor partisan conjecture; the “Reset” movement’s leaders openly brag about it.

‘Evil in high places’

What Americans are beholding as the new year unfolds (2021) is more than just a host of extremely daunting circumstances brought about by corrupt, misguided and power-hungry people in leadership positions. Something else seems to be at work.

Consider that the well-intentioned but naïve liberal leaders of yesteryear are almost nowhere to be found. In their place are politicians, academics and media personalities whose breathtaking level of dishonesty and delusion (they talk sincerely about men becoming pregnant; they liken Trump to Hitler; and they pretend the corrupt and shockingly senile Joe Biden is qualified to be president)  … (All this) …suggests a surreal, dystopian, darkly spiritual dimension to the current troubled era.

What can good Americans do?

So now comes the big question: With such genuine wickedness openly manifesting in “the land of the free,” so much that it evokes the Apostle Paul’s admonitions about “powers and principalities” and “spiritual wickedness in high places,” what can good Americans do about the precarious state of their country? During this time of genuine tribulation and even persecution, how should moral, right-thinking Americans, who work hard, love their country, honor its history and obey its laws – and who don’t pretend there are dozens of new genders, and that America is a despicable racist hellhole – now respond?

In truth, Americans today are confronted with a maniacal revolutionary movement emanating from a full-bore rebellion against God Almighty and the essential foundation stones of Western Judeo-Christian civilization – from biblical morality, to “unalienable” individual rights, to equal justice under the law, to the color-blind society championed by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., to the sacredness of children in the womb. After all, each of these priceless principles emanates directly from a deep recognition that human beings are created in the image of God – Imago Dei – and are therefore precious and of inestimable value.

Ironically, although atheist Karl Marx famously attacked religion and particularly Christianity as the “opium of the people,” he himself concocted the ultimate religious opiate: Marxism.

For although the fantasy-world promise of socialism was a “classless” society wherein all people are equal and cared for, in the real world, corrupt leftist-elite politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are so dishonest and desperately addicted to power, their consciences so seared by decades of lying, that they retain zero capacity for genuinely caring about the “poor and disadvantaged.” It’s all an act.

Rather, the religion they preach – Marxism, socialism, progressivism, whatever the label – is just an opiate they cynically dispense to pacify and distract the masses, while they grow ever more wealthy, powerful and privileged, but inwardly ever more ugly, corrupt and self-deceived.

‘Uniquely blessed by God’

First, remember that our current time isn’t uniquely burdened by evil and misfortune. When Jesus Christ walked the earth two millennia ago, He and His Jewish countrymen lived under harsh Roman occupation. “Individual rights” (including the right to vote) didn’t exist. And most people were “poor and disadvantaged.” And then there was leprosy. Moreover, to make sure the rabble always knew who was in charge, the Romans routinely crucified people along the roadsides – escaped slaves, criminals and other “lowlifes,” and especially those they regarded as any sort of threat to Roman rule.

The intervening centuries have all too often presented equally daunting circumstances. While today’s coronavirus pandemic has taken several hundred thousand American lives, 14th century Europe had to contend with the Black Plague, which killed some 25 to 50 million people – and no treatments or vaccines. Then there have been the countless wars, the costliest being World War II with over 70 million deaths, including over 400,000 Americans. Indeed, the 20th century was the bloodiest in all of human history, dominated as it was by the ever-metastasizing Marxist cancer, which consumed an appalling 100-200 million lives.

Truth is, the human race is so regularly mired in intractable crises, one could reasonably conclude that crisis and chaos are the norm for humans, with societal peace and prosperity but rare and cherished aberrations.

And that may be the point: America has historically constituted one of those few extraordinary “cherished aberrations,” a nation uniquely blessed by God.

A nation uniquely blessed by God

America was blessed by wise founders who crafted a magnificent Constitution to be the template for a government based on individual rights and ordered liberty, not the rule of kings and potentates. Blessed with a population willing to sacrifice 600,000 lives in a war to expunge the evil of slavery. Blessed with an admirably resilient Judeo-Christian culture and a population genuinely in love with their country. Blessed with extraordinary natural resources, including more oil than Saudi Arabia. Blessed with unparalleled freedom and prosperity that to this day attract more immigrants to our shores than any other country in the world, by far.

Therefore, when they see their beloved country being stolen, defiled and “fundamentally transformed” as it is right now, right-thinking Americans feel compelled to defend her. But how?

First and most immediate: November’s election was a freak show, featuring hands-down the most massive amount of voter fraud in Americans’ lifetimes. If the various states that permitted and encouraged election fraud – such as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin and others – aren’t compelled to play by the rules, America will never again be a unified, peaceful nation – ever. So that is job one.

Even setting aside the outrageous election abuses, the major news media and tech monopolies pre-rigged November’s contest long before Election Day by continually portraying Donald Trump as a Hitlerian, mentally ill traitor while casting the demented and spectacularly corrupt Joe Biden as a moral paragon and guarantor of national healing.

They all knew better, but they did it anyway.

However, a corrupt news establishment, a rigged election process, a radicalized Democrat Party and out-of-control Big Tech information gatekeepers are not our only problems.

America’s colleges and universities have become Marxist indoctrination centers. Our public elementary, middle and high schools teach our children that America is a racist nation. Even preschoolers are herded into public libraries where demonically possessed men pretending to be women – some of them convicted sex-offenders – are allowed to beguile, indoctrinate and corrupt these children’s tender little minds, while their clueless parents smile and nervously laugh.

Summarizing America’s current spiritual state, Los Angeles mega-pastor John MacArthur recently told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham: “America’s in a moral free fall. … You murder the babies in the womb. If they survive the womb, you try to seduce them into transgender sexual deviation when they’re young. If they survive that, you corrupt them with a godless education. If they survive that, you have divorce in the family. And if they grow to be adults, we drown them in a sea of pornography. This is a nation so far down in the sewer of immorality and wickedness that nothing surprises me.”

MacArthur is right, of course. Which means even if Trump had managed to remain in office for another four years and continued to turbocharge the U.S. economy as he did previously, America would remain in a state of “moral free fall.”

Try this thought experiment: Recall how Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court led to hordes of screaming people wildly pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court building, an epic mob scene reminiscent of something out of the French Revolution. And that was just over a nomination! Imagine what would happen if those rioters’ worst fears – the outlawing of abortion – actually came to pass. What if the Supreme Court actually repealed Roe v. Wade, or – to take the hypothetical even further – suppose the states actually amended the U.S. Constitution with a Human Life Amendment, outlawing abortion throughout the nation.

It would be a great day, of course – except America would be in a state of war, her streets unsafe, mass hysteria dominating public life every single day.

I think you get the picture. America has become a very broken nation, with millions of people utterly captive to bizarre, deceitful and deadly beliefs.

Thus, while we work and litigate and demonstrate and persuade and donate and pray for a turnaround on all the current battlefields – from election integrity to media corruption to abortion – what America really needs is indeed a revolution. But not a Marxist one.

Toward national revival

First, a word of warning to hotheads: Whereas civil disobedience in the manner of the Civil Rights Movement demonstrators of the 1960s can be a powerful force for good, awakening the conscience of a nation and bringing about truly positive change, angry and violent rebellion is not only counter-productive, it is precisely what the maniacal, power-obsessed Left wants.

That’s right. Although they will never admit it, it’s what they desire most of all. Why? Because it would enable them to point to “rightwing, white-supremacist extremists and terrorists” and say, “See! We told you all along that white-nationalist Trump-supporting fascists were the real problem!”

This is precisely why the left is forever fabricating and publicizing a never-ending array of “hate-crime” hoaxes, because they serve to validate their deranged narrative that conservatives, Republicans and Trump supporters are the real criminals, fascists and terrorists, and must be throttled at all costs. The left dreams of an unhinged, violent “rightwing” rebellion, as such would serve only to vindicate them and give them a lock on the power they crave.

As events unfold in the new year and beyond, bold strategies will emerge for restoring our nation, and patriotic right-thinking Americans will surely pursue them. Members of Congress and all state legislators will play pivotal roles, especially with regard to assuring free and fair elections, as will governors and mayors and indeed all elected office holders. Traditionally minded citizens will pursue parallel institutions to protect their children as well as their own wellbeing and sanity, from alternative educational modalities (homeschooling and private Christians schools) to alternative news media. Indeed, the American samizdat (that’s what the “underground” press, the only source of truthful news, was called in the former Soviet empire) must flourish, although it will have to endure more censorship and abuse as they perform their vital role of investigating corruption and truthfully keeping Americans informed.

In every area of life, Americans will have to bear up with grace and dignity in fighting the good fight. Citizens, the ultimate sovereigns in America’s unique constitutional system, who may be tempted to “drop out of politics” must do the opposite – vigorously exercising their sacred rights of voting, free speech, free association, freedom of worship, and to “petition the government for a redress of grievances” in every legal and moral way.

One final all-important point: Unlike virtually all other nations, the essence of America is not a common ethnicity but a common spirit – a grateful, liberty-loving, generous, essentially Christian spirit, which needs to burn more brightly now in America than ever.

Indeed, no real and lasting recovery is possible for America without a genuine spiritual revival. And each of us can and must play a key part in this revival. How? While we’re engaged on every battlefront – committed to work creatively and effectively, to educate and persuade, to enlighten and awaken, and to outthink and outmaneuver the demented Left – each of us needs, as Christ commanded, to “Let [our] light … shine before men,” always praying… we can wage the battle righteously. And even praying for our enemies.

Christianity has historically grown during times of persecution, not only in numbers but in depth and sincerity. America’s coming days promise to be very tough ones, with much persecution directed toward those who dare speak the Truth. But if good people stand up for what is right, for their nation, for what is legal and proper and moral and good – and if they do it with faith in Almighty God that He may be glorified and His will ultimately triumph – they absolutely cannot lose.

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28

Common Sense to Turn ON the Lights comes from Righteousness and Truth

By Dennis Petersen

When your society seems to have gone mad with wicked depraved ideas, you are being challenged to make choices.  Will you allow yourself to be herded like sheep to the slaughter?  Will you go with the flow and take your family by the seemingly easy path into the net of destruction? Or will you gather the courage to seek out the truth that will set you free no matter what the cost?

Are we motivated by Faith or by fear?

I have no doubt that all of us are being motivated to pray for God’s help in our perplexing times of need. But are we praying in fear or in faith?

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

2 Timothy 1:7
(more…)

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.

We Americans are facing an imminent election that’s more crucial to our freedom and well-being than likely any election in our nation’s history. Yet, the mountainous influence of the main stream media, big tech and big pharma have effectively divided us politically by a total charade. It’s a completely corrupt series of schemes to confuse and divide us, making us unable to see that we’ve been cut loose from our anchors of morality, historic roots and God’s truth.

Only 6% of Americans hold to a Biblical worldview

Only 6% of American adults, and only 2% of American millennials actually hold to the very basics of a Biblical worldview (according to reports of Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center).  That’s pretty disturbing news, since 61% still claim to be Christian.

The definition of a biblical worldview included affirmation of these basic doctrines:

  • First, the existence of absolute morals communicated through Scripture.
  • Second, Jesus Christ lived a sinless life.
  • Third, God is the all-powerful, all-knowing Creator of the universe and He stills rules it today.
  • Fourth, salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned.
  • Fifth, Satan is real.
  • Sixth, Christians have a responsibility to share their faith in Christ with other people.
  • And seventh, the Bible is accurate in all of its teachings.

The 6% of Americans who have a Biblical worldview represents a drop-off from 9% in 2009, reports Barna.

After seeing these kinds of statistics reporting the dismal record low of citizens in USA who embrace Biblical Christianity, we need to honestly recognize that our culture has created a very shallow approach to whole truth.  Many Christians today have a lot of misconceptions about Scripture. They establish beliefs about truth based on misquoted verses without full context, because they’ve been taught by preachers who miss the balance of God’s righteous requirements with the amazing mercy of His grace.

Look at some Examples of misguided beliefs

** “in Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).  It’s focused on “me” – personal fuzzy feeling about God’s care.  But what happens when we read the whole context?  Acts 17:23b-28…

“What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you.  The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything.  And he made from one man every nation (ethnos) of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for ‘In him we live and move and have our being’ as even some of your own poets have said, For we are indeed his offspring.”

** “if my people humble themselves and pray and seek my face… then will I hear from heaven and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14.  Repentance directed by our humble free will is a noble principle we are encouraged by here… but read the whole context starting at verse 13 and then on to verse 19-22.

“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence (plague) among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For now, I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there for all time. And as for you, if you will walk before me as David your father walked, doing according to all that I have commanded you and keeping my statutes and my rules, then I will establish your royal throne, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘You shall not lack a man to rule Israel.’

 “But if you turn aside and forsake my statutes and my commandments that I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will pluck you up from my land that I have given you, and this house that I have consecrated for my name, I will cast out of my sight, and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples. And at this house, which was exalted, everyone passing by will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the LORD done thus to this land and to this house?’ Then they will say, ‘Because they abandoned the LORD, the God of their fathers who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods and worshiped them and served them. Therefore, he has brought all this disaster on them.’”

** “the truth shall make you free…” John 8:32. We must read the whole statement of Jesus starting at verse 31.

So, Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

The Deranged Strategy of Exalted Demonic Powers in High Places

Today’s Democrat Party is, for all practical purposes, insane – or as President Trump put it, ‘totally, stone-cold crazy.’

“Democrats demonize and ‘defund’ the police that protects them and then complain when crime skyrockets. They encourage violent communist-anarchist mobs to burn down our cities.  They insist they can change the earth’s weather by adopting a bizarre totalitarian-socialist program that would destroy our economy and annihilate individual rights. They believe convicted terrorists should be allowed to vote from prison. They believe a beautiful, full-term human baby about to be born, can be slaughtered at will. They disagree with God, insisting that there are dozens of different genders – and that men can get pregnant. That is insane.”

What’s happening in the Party of Derangement?

World Net Daily editor, David Kupelian, writes in his essay about the Trojan horse of our time:

 “Today’s Democrat Party has become possessed by the dark revolutionary spirit of Marxism, which in reality is based on hatred and rebellion against God, against His commandments, against His morality, against the very idea of objective truth. Marxists want their own truth, their own laws, their own morality, their own biology, their own science, their own heaven … on earth. They want nothing to do with the Judeo-Christian values that have long served as the moral foundation of America – which they openly hate.  And yet, these are the very people who believe they’re much more intelligent and moral than you, and who, in just a few weeks, fully intend to take over America forever.”

Forever?

Rush Limbaugh, before the 2020 election, put it starkly: “If the Democrats win, that’s the end of democracy. It’s the end of the two-party system. We’re going to have a one-party government that is going to devote itself to eliminating all opposition. That’s what’s at stake. If they win, I think the Republican Party essentially ceases to exist.”

How is that even possible, seeing as America has been a two-party system for centuries?

“One of the first things they will do,” explained Limbaugh, “is grant statehood to D.C. and Puerto Rico, and that will give them four Democrat senators. They will never lose control of the Senate. They will never lose control of the House. They will pack the Supreme Court with who knows how many new justices, and they’ll all be left-leaning justices. And it won’t take them long to do any of this. And after they’ve done it, there will be a one-party state. The United States will be a one-party government.”

If that prospect seemed real in 2020, what are all of us are seeing more clearly now? The wicked controlling powers of society at all levels of politics, information distribution, and corporate business have mesmerized most of the population. We’ve been conditioned not to think for ourselves with so much as good old common sense.

A Clear Prayer for God to Rise Up Against the Wicked!

If we American Christians do not persistently petition our Lord for His mercy, guidance, and protection for our nation, and do everything in our strength to use our God given abilities and influence to urge fellow citizens to actively vote, the influential ‘gates of hell’ will corruptly steal not only the coming election.  If we do not get deeply serious about being the beacons of light to our communities – ongoing from here on – our feeble testimony will be squelched by tyrants who hate God and hate you.

Psalm 94:16-17 “Who rises up for me against the wicked? Who stands up for me against evildoers?  If the LORD had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.”

Tyranny requires that the truth be silenced, that real history be erased and rewritten, that speech be restricted, and that individual thought be silenced.

In this time of constant turmoil, false flags, wars, civil unrest, and now internal bio-terrorism and manufactured pandemics, a major agenda of the demonically influenced state’s ruling class is to silence all dissent, and mandate conformity.  And remember, the reason many of us live in denial about the reality of that, is because of the natural human inclination toward “normalcy bias.” Our brains are wired to resist change. But there is a globalist ruling class, whether we want to believe it or not. But, what many of us miss is that Jesus IS King of all earthly kings. He is the one who sets up kings and brings kings down. And Jesus has all authority in heaven and earth. And He has delegated spiritual authority to His disciples. Not to use randomly but to exercise on behalf of the direction of the Holy Spirit who lives in us and will never leave us or forsake us.

It is imperative, considering a tyranny’s plan for total control, that it stifles criticism and retains the power to control the mainstream narrative, while aggressively eliminating all other resistance and questioning.

This is the state of the world that we live in today. As things continue to deteriorate, nonconformity cannot be allowed if global governance and a global reset are to be successful.

Current censorship has reached levels not seen in the past

… and with all the advanced technology available, this despicable plot to silence thinkers and hide the truth could affect all forms of speech.

It is getting much more difficult to find truthful information, as those like Google, Amazon, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and others are deleting content and access to content at a scorching pace.  A day rarely goes by without something we are reading or researching on these sites is taken down or hidden.

This has already led to a world consumed by propaganda alone!  Only the state narrative is presented on most of the mainstream easily accessible media formats.  You have to really dig if you want to hear honest, second opinion sources of information on just about any topic.

A Change in our listening habits must be Top Priority

You Must reset your inputs.  Turn off network media channels and learn to regularly – daily if possible – listen to trustworthy voices reporting what God is doing and prophetically inspiring His servants to speak into our culture.  Access not only conservative voices like Dennis Prager and Tucker Carlson, but find Christ-honoring voices you can resonate with. And you’ll have to establish Internet connections to Free-speech platforms like Brighteon, Bitchute, Rumble. Roku is a good system to connect with many we’ve appreciated like “And We Know,” “Flashpoint,” and Frank Speech.  Charlie Kirk, Mario Murillo, Lance Wallnau, and Pastors Jack Hibbs and Rob McCoy.  Look up their posts and channels on YouTube and spend serious time catching up with truth-filled insights that will inspire you, equip you, and inform you with God’s perspective on what’s going on in your world and how to navigate it.

This is our real and dangerous situation because doctrines of demons are out to destroy mankind

It’s especially ominous, considering the likelihood that through vaccination or other methods, much of the population could soon become subject to transhuman experimentation where injectable nanoparticles and chips could be used to alter human behavior.

Corrupted Power is always troubled by any that dare to think and dare to question

This is not a new phenomenon, as tyrants throughout human history have censored writing and speech in order to protect their power structure.

In ancient times and not so ancient times, books were forcibly burned to keep the populace from having access to any material that was not acceptable by the throne or by the current political authority.

In cases of resistance to ‘high’ authority, many were also killed by the state, and in many cases these ‘cleansings’ were targeted to the educated class, because they had the capability to think critically and express their ideas publicly. If you’re not informed about the historic period of the Reformation, start watching the historic dramas on RedeemTV.com. The period of European history beginning in the 1300s with John Huss and John Wycliffe going into the 1500s with Martin Luther and William Tyndale is one of the most heroic episodes of God’s providential guidance of human history. It makes you realize more powerfully the fact of the hand of God in human society’s experience as recorded in Acts 17 when Paul spoke about God determining the times of nations and the bounds of their habitation (Acts 17:26).

Those that held power by force of arms would never allow criticism and dissent, because that could lead to hostility and insurrection by the people.

In this time of Covid and this fake virus pandemic, things have changed in part, but much is as it has always been throughout history.

Money, power, and control have always been the key concerns of the ruling class. But the methods to keep that power and control have changed. Instead of the sword and guillotine, propaganda and fear have become the primary tools used to fool the people into compliance. In order for propaganda to work, elimination of dissent is imperative.

Censorship plays a huge role in any effort to gain support of the masses, because without the possibility to reach the bulk of the people, the truth tellers become marginalized, and are shunned and ridiculed as troublemakers and conspiracy theorists.

The Broadest Mind Control Effort in Planet Earth’s History

The biggest censorship push in history is taking place today, which means that the biggest propaganda push is also underway.

This false flag event called the coronavirus pandemic is not about one king seeking control over his subjects, but is about the few globalist elitists attempting to take over the entire planet. There is no question that they are demonically inspired.

This is a global effort that is run by the few top claimed elites, with their tentacles of power reaching almost every country on earth through control of the banks, corporations, foundations, and the entire political class system.

Many have fought and died in order to protect free speech, but all speech is now under attack by the forces of evil.

If the globalists were to have their way, free speech would be lost forever.

This is the world of the Internet and computerized system saturation. Censorship today takes on a new sophisticated look through so called “fact checkers” and compliance to “community standards” but it’s meant to accomplish the same goals as in the past.

Blacklisting users, blocking content, and algorithmic manipulation allow for the state to control information, and with that control of information, it stands to reason that the general public will then be easier to manipulate and keep in check.

The acceptance of tracking and tracing technology, continued isolation, vaccines capable of altering the DNA structure of individuals, chips and dyes mimicking the mark of the beast, and a continued state of fear will lead to an end of what our society has long considered the state of normalcy.

The result sought is a new order, a “new normal,” that will be totally controlled by ruling ‘experts’ claiming to be able to sustain you, protect you, appease you, meet all your needs, and eliminate your worries.

This system is called technocracy, and is dependent on a societal class fully controlled by an upper class.

Does this sound familiar? It should, as that is what all tyrants want, but in this day and age, it will look much different.

All of this relies on a willing public

And in order to achieve that total compliance on a scale this large, the human spirit must be broken, and love, family, emotion, responsibility, open communication, mass gatherings, and debate must be squelched.

Once the pathetic masses accept this ruse, and acquiesce to the mandates coming, they will be transformed into a machine-like state through technological manipulation claiming to make life easier, safer, and more convenient.

A totally digitized system is necessary in order to retain constant control. This may sound outlandish, like a dystopian science fiction novel.  But it is exactly what is happening right in front of all of us.

Will Christ’s Faithful Followers Do What Past Faithful Heroes Did?

A completely new world is coming upon us for a limited time.  It happens by eliminating truth, eliminating our historical roots, and hiding all that is real and honest.  What is left is a fantasy, but this fantasy will be deadly.  Only those who, like the Pilgrims of Plymouth, are willing to form local bonds of true Ekklesia fellowship community and educate their children according to God’s Biblical truth will avoid the fate of Lot’s wife. She was consumed by her own longing for the shiny objects of this world rather than follow God’s escape route into the unknown. Abram followed God to a destination unknown that was predetermined by God alone.  And we have been given Abraham’s faith to trust God for our destination, no matter what happens in the world around us.

Seek the truth, seek honesty, ask questions, and believe nothing unless it can be personally verified. Do not allow the takeover of your lives by these monsters claiming to be your saviors.

We now know the plans of the enemies of freedom – the enemies of God.  It is absolutely foolish for Christians (the 50% who don’t vote in elections because doing their civic, constitutional duty is somehow beneath their dignity) to think they can continue their worldly guided behavior and not be accountable to God for it. They are assigned by Jesus to be preservative ‘salt’ to their culture. That takes deliberate effort. They are modern day equivalents to Ezekiel’s watchman on the wall.  They will be judged for their inaction when they could have prevented the destruction of their peers.

They have failed to think…

What would their family’s life be like IF BLM, Inc invaded their neighborhoods?

What will they do when tyrannical bureaucrats marginalize honest citizens who conscientiously choose to opt out of arguably dangerous public health mandates?

In controversial times, we must prayerfully think! And think extra hard before we act.

You and I can’t force someone to adopt an opinion against their will. “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still!”  Don’t even try to do it. Refuse to argue with fools who embrace death over life, license over responsibility, and promised safety over daring to risk our temporal comforts.

Only God’s Spirit Can Open Our Spiritual Eyes that have been blinded by Deception

We are seeing publicly the open expression of ‘doctrines of demons’ – hellish teachings popularly accepted as correct for the masses. But you are a chosen generation; a distinct people for God’s own possession; to shine forth His redeeming and purifying light in the midst of darkness. Focus on truth and share it with those willing to receive it.

Just ask yourself; what is the chief aim of following Jesus?  Abundant life and knowing God intimately.

Ask; what is the chief aim of the devil?  To steal, kill and destroy.

What is the genius of the US constitution?  God is our King.  We have freedom of thought to be citizens – we the people – free to pursue a life of God’s order under a Biblically inspired nation of written laws – God’s 10 commandments. Righteous truths are eternally self-evident, teaching people to learn self-restraint. The unrighteous require external controls that can’t be enforced without draconian, anti-God restraints.

The mask and personal physical distancing rules by human governors do not recognize “natural laws of God’s creation.” Those natural laws are so obvious, that to ignore them, becomes absurdly stupid.  Not only do such foolish restraints endanger humans physically amid a sea of constantly changing opinions, they dehumanize personal relationships, leading to all manner of social and mental disorders.  If you doubt the fallacies of such conclusions, take the time to watch censored research reporters like those featured on TheHighWire.com, NaturalNews.com, and HealthImpactNews.com. Be informed by honest dissenters from the mainstream.

God is giving all of us an opportunity to influence the outcome of our nation because He commanded His disciples to actually disciple the nations of the world.  And that is possible because He proclaimed that all authority had been given to Him. Do you honestly believe that? Then why not make every effort to participate in the process of determining the leadership of your own nation under God?  Vote for freedom of conscience and the liberty to proclaim the truth of God.  You’re voting for a platform of principles, not for a personality. This is a rare opportunity in our generation. We now have a crossroads before us where every vote counts. Who, in their right mind, wants to throw their vote away by either not voting or voting for a platform determined to enslave all humanity by a globalist agenda? 

Only by constant intercession for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven… for His Kingdom to invade our earthly community… for His enablement to guide us to speak the truth to enlighten the darkness… these must be our priorities in each day God gives us breath. 

 Psalm 95:10b-15 promises us with consolation:

“He who teaches man knowledge—the LORD—knows the thoughts of man, that they are but a breath. Blessed is the man whom you discipline, O LORD, and whom you teach out of your law, to give him rest from days of trouble, until a pit is dug for the wicked.  For the LORD will not forsake his people; he will not abandon his heritage; for justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.”

Erasing History and Erasing Truth: Censorship and Destroying Records Is the Cornerstone of Tyrants

“If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.”

~ John Stuart Mill, On Liberty ch. 2 (1859)

This false flag event called the coronavirus pandemic is not about one king seeking control over his subjects, but is about the few attempting to take over the entire planet.

This is a global effort that is run by the few top claimed elites, with their tentacles of power reaching almost every country on earth through control of the banks, corporations, foundations, and the entire political class system.

Many have fought and died in order to protect free speech, but all speech is now under attack by the forces of evil.

If the globalists have their way, free speech will be lost forever.

This is the world of the Internet and computerized system saturation. Censorship today takes on a new look meant to accomplish the same goals as in the past.

Blacklisting users, blocking content, and algorithmic manipulation allow for the state to control information, and with that control of information, it stands to reason that the general public will then be easier to manipulate and keep in check.

The acceptance of tracking and tracing technology, continued isolation, vaccines capable of altering the DNA structure of individuals, chips and dyes mimicking the mark of the beast, and a continued state of fear will lead to an end of normalcy.

The result sought is a new order, a “new normal,” that will be totally controlled by ruling ‘experts’ claiming to be able to sustain you, protect you, appease you, meet all your needs, and eliminate your worries.

This system is called technocracy, and is dependent on a societal class fully controlled by an upper class.

Does this sound familiar? It should, as that is the want of all tyrants, but in this day and age, it will look much different.

All of this relies on a willing public

All of this relies on a willing public, and in order to achieve that total compliance on a scale this large, the human spirit must be broken, and love, family, emotion, responsibility, open communication, mass gatherings, and debate must be squelched.

Once the pathetic masses accept this ruse, and acquiesce to the mandates coming, they will be transformed into a machine-like state through technological manipulation said to make life easier and more convenient.

A totally digitized system is necessary in order to retain constant control. This may sound outlandish, and something akin to a dystopian science fiction novel, but that is because that is exactly what it is.

The new world is coming, and by eliminating truth, eliminating our historical roots, and hiding all that is real and honest, what is left is a fantasy, but this fantasy will be deadly.

Seek the truth, seek honesty, ask questions, and believe nothing unless it can be personally verified. Do not allow the takeover of your lives by these monsters claiming to be your saviors.

Hearing Gary Barnett’s essay should certainly be sobering.  But, let’s not forget Who is really in control of the Earth that Scripture declares belongs to the Creator with all of its ‘fullness.’

Hear Psalm 2.

1 Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,

3 “Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!”

4 He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them.

5 Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury, saying,

6 “But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

7 “I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have begotten You.

8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, And the very ends of the earth as Your possession.

9 ‘You shall break them with a rod of iron, you shall shatter them like earthenware.’”

10 Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; take warning, O judges of the earth.

11 Worship the LORD with reverence and rejoice with trembling.

12 Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, for His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

Courage is rising in America to overcome the influence of ungodly secularism

by Dennis Petersen

At the start of Jesus’ 3-year project of discipling his 12 chosen men, we learn that “…they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” Mark 1:22

In times of relative peace and quiet, the virtue of courage is often unseen and little spoken of. But when the pressure is on; when the conflict of good and evil is raised for all to see; when the dangers and threats of evildoers are brazen and menacing, then courage arises in those who are empowered with personal knowledge and experience.

Jesus communicated confidence with authority, not just because he had personal conviction. He had deep intimate knowledge of the truth that He spoke. He dwelt in the shelter of the Most High. He displayed the epitome of courage because He was in tune with the Father and only did what He saw Him do.

Will our Creator allow His creation to be Hijacked?

After hearing today’s report, you will have a better reason than ever to trust in the words of Jesus when He said, “So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be (made) known.” (Matthew 10:26).

After a full year of injecting people with an experimental gene altering shot for a patented infection that has never been isolated, called COVID-19, we can conclusively state that this is most definitely a weapon of mass destruction. It was intended to be from the start. It not only kills and cripples people in the present, it destroys unborn children in the womb as well. It is set to make a great part of the next generation of females infertile.

Actions Surviving Winners take when under attack in War between God and evil

Have you ever thought about the actions that are taken by those who survive and win when under attack in a war between God and evil?

The brilliant Christian philosopher of the 20th Century, C. S. Lewis wrote, “You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you.”

Dr Simone Gold, MD, JD spoke at Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Ventura, California. It was posted on YouTube Oct 29, 2021 but censored by YouTube.

For a Biblical context let’s be reminded of one of the many warnings in Scripture to diligently work to avoid being deceived.

“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore, do not be partakers with them.” Eph 5:6-7

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.
