Standing Up for Righteousness Against Organized Evil

By Dennis Petersen

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

Have you ever noticed the strong words God has for those who deliberately practice evil?  They are sometimes referred to as “evildoers” in the Bible.  Because we often tend to look at Scripture in a more personalized application, we can miss the fact that God’s word of condemnation often refers to the concerted efforts of organized evildoers.  Likewise, it’s important for us to realize that our Heavenly Father is working in us corporately as His body to unitedly pray and work together to “destroy the works of (our enemy) the devil.” With that in mind, hear some of what God says about these enemy “workers of iniquity.”

“evildoers shall be cut off…” Psalm 37:9 …destroyed… eliminated… wiped out.

Christmas is a time of remembering and anticipating the greatest gift to all mankind – Redemption

When you think about it… really think about it… the season of each year when we celebrate the remarkable advent of our Creator’s incarnation that we call Christmas… it’s truly amazing how God, in His providence, can use this season every year to personally communicate and commune with our deepest soul.  Even with all the distracting commercialism and misguided paganized myths that our society has amassed around the occasion, God is still profoundly using the Christmas season to bring light into the darkness of many minds whom He has chosen to receive eternal redemption. What a gift! 

The beloved disciple John, guided by the Holy Spirit of God, recorded the event straight to the point in the opening of his gospel.  He even showed the distinction between the Savior from the man, who also had the name John – the baptizer – who announced the anticipated Redeemer’s entry into our world. He wrote it this way.

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

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.

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?

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

Have Confidence in God’s Justice for His Nation

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.

Are truth tellers guilty of ignoring evidence?

By Dennis Petersen

Are truth tellers guilty of ignoring evidence that is suppressed by main stream monopolists of disinformation? Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, is the great discourse about the many extraordinary facets of the Jewel of God’s Word. The psalmist declares in verse 162:

“I rejoice at Thy Word, as one who finds great spoil” (like a hidden treasure of booty in the plunder hidden by a defeated enemy).

Psalm 119:162

And verse 165 calms us with: “Those who love Thy law have great peace, and nothing causes them to stumble (or to be offended).”  When I get upset about conditions as they are, the Lord often reminds me of that.

Why is Your Single Vote Essential to God’s Plan for America and the World?

By Dennis Petersen

Have you ever dealt with the frustrated feeling that your civic duty of voting is a fruitless exercise in futility?

Most hard-working Americans are ordinarily so busy with their private lives that they give only little attention to the process of civic government, except for the complaining that all of us tend to do when we see policies enacted that we disagree with or that cost us something.  Do you recall anyone asking for your vote to give more of your hard-earned money to bureaucracies to waste on programs that you think are foolish? Worse yet, we’re all aware of terrible civic outcomes.  The election of Barack Obama (even twice); the court’s decision to re-make God’s ordinance of marriage; government’s interference and persecution of Christians for refusing to bake a cake; legalizing abortion, or whatever—it’s easy to get overwhelmed with a feeling of hopelessness.

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

Knowledge and Understanding amidst Face mask paranoia

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.

In epic challenging times where is God?

 

This is one of the very best gentle evangelistic invitations to think about God that I’ve ever seen… a short 3-minute video with a beautifully written narration that sensitively invites listeners to personally connect with God through the Bible verse where Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life…”  I think you’ll really like this and find it useful in sharing with others.
