[VIDEO] Let us start taking responsibility for what’s wrong with both our nation and our personal lives…

There is a good message in this video…

Dave Ramsey’s EPIC Rant: Politicians Aren’t Jesus

This message is all about our getting ourselves out of this victim mentality!

Our culture and our pseudo-watered-down compromised faith has turned us, as individuals and as a nation, into a bunch of wimps, that are told what to think and how to think it.

Do you not see that you are being played as a fools?

Here we are once again, going through this political election cycle, every four years, looking for some compromised lying politician, instead of ourselves and our faith in Jesus Christ, to fix everything that’s wrong in our culture and in our lives?

Someone once said that the definition of insanity is when people do the same things the same way, over and over again, and yet each time are expecting different results.

It’s not gonna happen folks, not until we take responsibility, ourselves, for what’s wrong with our nation and for what’s wrong in our personal lives.

To begin with, what’s wrong with our culture and what’s wrong with our personal lives is not going to change until we change them; and that first is going to require that we are honest with ourselves, and that we are honest with God.

Now the world may not understand this or believe it, but as Christians we understand that the heavens above and this entire world, and everything in it, was created, including our very lives, through the person of Jesus – the Christ (Messiah / Emmanuel – God with us)!

Colossians 1:16

For in Him (Jesus) ALL things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.

It is to God and to God alone that we are responsible, and as the Bible tells us, our lives are no longer are own – but that through the propitious sacrifice of Jesus, on Calvary’s cross – that we ALL have been bought with a price.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

The road back home, into our proper relationship with our Creator, starts with the first step, in that we as individuals and also as a nation, humble ourselves before God and pray, that we each turn from our wicked ways and we seek God’s face, as per second Chronicles 7:14.

So what do you say, how about if we get real for a change, and we make the difference, and not look to some man to do it for us?

Come join the Adventure and commit your life to Jesus Christ!

BREAKING: Top US Admiral Fired For Questioning Obama’s Purchase Of Mansion In Dubai…

Get a load of this, and see what our “Trader-in- Chief” president is doing now…

Ask yourself where did all this newfound wealth come from?

To find the answer to that question all you have to do is follow the money.

Article:

Top US Admiral Fired For Questioning Obama’s Purchase Of Mansion In Dubai

January 10 2016

A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that one of the United States Navy’s top commanders was relieved of his command a few hours ago after he sent out an “email/posting” revealing that President Barack Obama was in the process of purchasing a multi-million dollar seaside luxury villa in the United Arab Emirates city (UAE) of Dubai.

According to this report, the Commander of the US Navy’s Carrier Strike Group 15, Rear Admiral Rick Williams, posted a “pointed” query on 8 January [since deleted] to the US Naval Institute’s “Readiness Kill Chain” “recipients/responders” list as to why Navy security and intelligence personal had been dispatched from Naval Support Facility Thurmont (aka Camp David) to Dubai on what he termed an “Obama house hunting mission”.

Within 18 hours of Admiral Williams posting this query, this report continues, the US Navy’s Third Fleet Commander, Vice Admiral Nora Tyson   (GEN DUNFORD  – please FIRE this TRAITOR and hang her for TREASON), acting on direct orders from her Commander-In-Chief, ‘president’ Barack Obama (ANOTHER TRAITOR), fired Admiral Williams, stating her action was “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command” because of “allegations of his misuse of government computer equipment”.

When further questioned by Russian Today journalists via email to provide more details about Admiral Williams firing, this report notes, the Pentagon failed to reply—but then began releasing “anonymous” stories to the US press that Admiral Williams had been viewing pornography on his computer.  (And they still think Americans are so stupid that we haven’t figured out yet their standard modus operandi – hahahahah.  No wonder China and Russia are so far advanced with their military weaponry, etc. The U.S.A. criminal NATO / UN cabal military, under direction of the aliens and United Nations, is still practicing with their childhood plastic tanks and plastic ships in their bath tubs. )

(The normal customary U.S.A. criminal cabal ‘reasons’ to ‘fire’ a top level military officer or ‘government’ employee:  (1) pornography, and (2) illicit sexual affairs, neither of which would have to be true.  The ‘affair’ was one of the major charges selected when Petraus was fired. See: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/11/15/silencing-general-petraeus.html )

To such an absurd claim that Admiral Williams (or any US Navy officer or seaman in fact) could view pornography on their computers, SVR analysts in this report note, is an impossibility due to the US Navy/Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), which not only blocks such sites, but also requires each single user to log in with their own unique password and username and whose records are meticulously kept and reviewed on a daily basis (thanks to Edward Snowden)—and which one would logically think one of the highest ranking officers in the US Navy would surely be aware of.

As to the “Obama house hunting mission,” Admiral Williams was making his query about it before being fired, this report continues, SVR intelligence “assests” in the UAE identified it as being a luxury seaside villa located in the Palm Jumeirah development of Dubai being offered for sale at the price of $4.9 million (18 million United Arab Emirates Dirham), and which a deposit on it was made this past week by the Washington D.C. based global public affairs company Podesta Group.

Important to note about the Podesta Group, this report notes, is that its leader is Tony Podesta who, aside from being one of the most powerful oligarchs in the US, is a close personal friend of Obama, too. (Podesta’s helping Obama exhibits poor decision making and choices. The day will come when he will regret his decision to help Obama.)

Equally important to note about the Podesta Group’s purchasing of this Dubai luxury seaside mansion for Obama, this report says, is that he is being legally represented in this purchase by the equally powerful Washington D.C. based global law firm DLA Piper—both of whom have long been identified as being the nexus power brokers behind Saudi Arabia’s massive multi-million dollar “PR machine” operating behind the scenes corrupting the entire United States political establishment.

Too, if Saudi Arabia itself is behind the purchase of this luxury seaside villa in Dubai for Obama, this report doesn’t state—but to the cost of it being too high after it cost the job of one of America’s top Naval Commanders is beyond dispute.

(America does NOT want bozo, but America DOES want the Admiral.) FIRE bozo and REHIRE the Admiral.)

Let us run the race to gain the “Prize” (1 Cor 9:24)…

image

This Christian walk is NOT for wimps and nor is it for quitters either

But it is for people who are honest with themselves, honest enough to recognize that the way they were living their lives, before Christ, totally committed to the world, was not working, and nor was it satisfying.

You see God has purposefully put a God sized void inside each of our hearts, that can ONLY be filled with Himself; and as experience has shown most of us, the world is a miserly substitute!

We each have our different paradigm views and motivations for why we commit our lives to Christ, but there is ONLY one reason that truly makes us worthy of the calling which God has placed upon our lives.

Jesus gave us the Parable of the Sower (also known as the Parable of the Four Soils), which is found in Matthew 13:3-9; Mark 4:2-9; and Luke 8:4-8.

After presenting this parable to the multitude, Jesus then interprets it for His disciples in Matthew 13:18-23; Mark 4:13-20; and Luke 8:11-15.

The Parable of the Sower concerns a sower who scatters seed, which falls on four different types of ground.

The hard ground “by the way side” prevents the seed from sprouting at all, and the seed becomes nothing more than bird food.

The stony ground provides enough soil for the seeds to germinate and begin to grow, but because there is “no deepness of earth,” the plants do not take root and are soon withered in the sun.

The thorny ground allows the seed to grow, but the competing thorns choke the life out of the beneficial plants.

The good ground receives the seed and produces much fruit.

Jesus’ explanation of the Parable of the Sower highlights four different responses to the gospel.

The seed is “the word of the kingdom.”

The hard ground represents someone who is hardened by sin; he hears but does not understand the Word, and Satan plucks the message away, keeping the heart dull and preventing the Word from making an impression.

The stony ground pictures a man who professes delight with the Word; however, his heart is not changed, and when trouble arises, his so-called faith quickly disappears.

The thorny ground depicts one who seems to receive the Word, but whose heart is full of riches, pleasures, and lusts; the things of this world take his time and attention away from the Word, and he ends up having no time for it.

The good ground portrays the one who hears, understands, and receives the Word—and then allows the Word to accomplish its result in his life.

The man represented by the “good ground” is the ONLY one of the four who is truly saved, because salvation’s proof is fruit (Matthew 3:7-8; 7:15-20).

To summarize the point of the Parable of the Sower:

“A man’s reception of God’s Word is determined by the condition of his heart.”

A secondary lesson would be “Salvation is more than a superficial, albeit joyful, hearing of the gospel.

Someone who is truly saved will go on to prove it.

[http://www.gotquestions.org/parable-sower.html]

How we respond to the Gospel’s message will determine what sort of soil we are and what our true motivation is; whether it be self directed or God directed?

You see the ONLY way anyone can successfully live this Christian life, the way God intends it to be lived, is that we MUST be willing to die to ourselves, meaning we die to our own will, our own ambitions, and we make a complete paradigm shift in our life, by making a conscious decision (having been truly born-again, NOT by the will of the flesh, but by the will of the Holy Spirit), to live this life TOTALLY dedicate to God’s service!

Romans 12:1-2
J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

We have seen God’s mercy and wisdom: how shall we respond?
12 1-2 With eyes wide open to the mercies of God, I beg you, my brothers, as an act of intelligent worship, to give him your bodies, as a living sacrifice, consecrated to him and acceptable by him.

Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould, but let God re-mould your minds from within, so that you may prove in practice that the plan of God for you is good, meets all his demands and moves towards the goal of true maturity.

What this means is that we now view our Chief Rabbi and Elder Brother, who is Jesus the Christ (meaning Messiah), as our model and example for how God the Father intends us to live our life; in the way we read in the Bible that Jesus lived His life here on earth, as it is recorded in the Bible.

1 John 2:6
Expanded Bible (EXB)

Whoever says that he lives [abides; remains] in God must live [walk] as Jesus lived [he walked].

Luke 9:23
And Jesus said to them ALL, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross (the symbol of his death to self) daily, and follow me.

You see the deal is this, you can’t live this Christian life with one foot in the world and one foot in the Spirit; because you can’t serve two masters, both the world and God; for as Jesus said, “you will cling to one and you will shun the other” (Mat 6:24).

So if you find that your life is being shook to its very foundation right now, please understand that God is allowing the superstructure of your old life to be torn down to its foundation, in order that you may know what your true foundation is, whether it is in Christ, or in something or someone else?

God is teaching all of us, in this process, that we are to look ONLY to Him, as our Source, in any and ALL of our life situations.

This pilgrimage is not easy, and out of necessity it will take a total and absolute commitment of yourself, that you are going to complete this race and that you will never ever quit!

Jesus himself is our “PRIZE,” He’s the reason why we run; and the Bible tells us that since He has already won this race for us (at Calvary’s cross), all we have to do, in order to be successful, is to keep running and NOT quit… just cross the finish line!

So the question is are you game, or not?

Will you be the man or woman that God created you to be?

You see Jesus has already committed Himself to us, by pouring out His life’s blood on Calvary’s cross; and in that selfless act He gave His very best, His life, in order to guarantee our position with Him for all eternity!

The reason why God has gone through all of this, and has given so much of Himself to make all of this possible, is because of the love He bears for us.

Romans 8:35-39
Living Bible (TLB)

35 Who then can ever keep Christ’s love from us? When we have trouble or calamity, when we are hunted down or destroyed, is it because he doesn’t love us anymore? And if we are hungry or penniless or in danger or threatened with death, has God deserted us?

36 No, for the Scriptures tell us that for his sake we must be ready to face death at every moment of the day—we are like sheep awaiting slaughter; 37 but despite all this, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us. 38 For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, 39 or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.

Jesus will not ever give up on us, and so let us make sure we never give up on Him!

Conquering our fears and rising above our storms…

image

Eagles are able to rise above the storm by leaning into the storm, using the adverse winds in order to gain the necessary lift to rise above it…

It is fear of the unknown that keeps us in bondage; and this fear is either caused by those things that we are afraid might happen tomorrow, or those remembrances of bad things that happened yesterday, that we keep reliving in our minds.

These are the things that keep us in bondage and block our forward progress.

This battle is fought in our mind, and so it must first be won in our mind before we can get our breakthrough.

Old habits need to be replaced with new habits, and this journey begins through our meditation in God’s Word.

We must first understand the inerrancy of God’s word, in that there is no prophecy of scripture that arose from any one individual’s interpretation of the truth; but that these holy men of old wrote as they were breathed upon by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21).

Hence the Bible did not come about by the will of man, but these men of God spoke because they were inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Well the same God breathed inspiration that inspired these 40 authors to pin God’s Word to page, is also available to us, as we read and meditate within those same pages.

John 16:13

Jesus speaking: “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into ALL truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

It is only as we allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate the Word, making it become alive for us, that we are able to gain personal direction and wisdom for our lives.

Without that illumination of the Holy Spirit, the Bible is just ink on paper and is like every other book.

This reprogramming of our mind is the ONLY way that we are able to change the way we think (which is what repentance is); and it is through our meditation in God’s Word that we are acquainting ourselves with the character and nature of God, and in so doing we are learning to adapt our ways of thinking to God’s ways, and are therefore putting on the mind of Christ (Php 2:5).  

By this reprogramming of our minds, this washing of our minds by the Word and the Spirit, and then by our leaning into our fears, in faith, this is the ONLY way that we are able to conquer our fears.

Don’t Serve the Problem!

Which-Direction-Do-I-Turn.jpg

Which way do I go???

The thought often occurs to me about how much the difficulties, trials, tribulations, and challenges which we ALL face, in this pilgrimage we call our life, is like a maze.

It is a maze where we are constantly required to make numerous choices and decisions

everyday that affect our future
, and we can know from the Bible that one of the most important things (from God’s point of view in all of this)

is our own attitude and how we react to all
the

uncertainties and trials in our
life.

I think this advice which you are about to read in this devotion will give us ALL some some very important rules of engagement in how God intends for us to react when under pressure.

Don’t Serve the Problem
Kenneth Copeland

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him. -Isaiah 55:7

You can’t win a victory as long as the problem is the biggest thing in your life!

The Lord woke me up to that fact a few years ago. At that time I was facing some difficulties in my ministry that seemed so big to me, I thought about them from morning till night. Even though I was standing against them, I was thinking more about those problems than about the scripture promises I was standing on.

Then I saw something in Matthew 6:24-25:

"Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life."

I’d read that scripture hundreds of times, but that day I saw something I’d never noticed before. I saw that immediately after Jesus said, "No man can serve two masters," He said, "Take no thought." Suddenly it hit me:

We serve our thoughts!

That’s why Isaiah 55 says for us to forsake our thoughts, and by the Word, take God’s thoughts.

That’s why 2 Corinthians 10:5 says to cast out thoughts that challenge the Word and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Do you want deliverance from your problems today?

Then quit serving them! Quit allowing them to consume your thought life. And don’t wait until circumstances change to do it.

Instead, realize that circumstances won’t ever change until you switch from wrong to right thinking.

I know that’s not easy to do, especially in the midst of heavy darkness and trial. But you can do it if you’ll do these three things:

First, remember you aren’t alone. You have the Word (God’s thoughts). You have the Holy Spirit to strengthen you and you have the mind of Christ.

Second, get around people who are full of faith. Instead of rehearsing your problem, let them do the talking. Make yourself listen. Join in with their faith and resist darkness.

Third, praise God. Do whatever it takes to make yourself praise. When you begin to praise, God’s presence will turn back those worried thoughts and make them fall!

Your problems are not the biggest thing in your life. Jesus is. Serve Him with your thoughts and He will set you free!

From Liberty to Bondage… is this to be America’s future?

At the close of  the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Benjamin Franklin as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberations, a woman approached him and asked the following question:

“Well, Doctor, what have we got—

a Republic or a Monarchy?”

To which Benjamin Franklin responded:

“A Republic madam, if you can keep it!”

Well how have we done, have we kept our Republic… the answer is, no we haven’t!

I read this a long time ago, it’s called the Cycle of Democracy, and it really sounds like what has happened here in our country.

Which brings me to another point that I will bring up later in this blog, and that is there was a very GOOD reason why our founding fathers made sure our nation was a Republic and NOT a Democracy, but again I will cover that a little later.

Also I’ve included an interview (see below) with a former IRS Special Agent, that you won’t want to miss!

Just read what this scholar said way back in 1770, and ask yourself if this doesn’t mirror our history and is it not an accurate representation of where we are today?

“A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

“If tyranny and oppression come to this land it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”  ~ James Madison

“The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppose.” ~Frederick Douglass

_______________________________

Back in 1963 Madalyn Murray O’Hair, on behalf of her son, filed a lawsuit claiming compulsory prayer and Bible reading in public schools was unconstitutional, and she won her case.

In a new book, entitled My Life Without God, William Murray (her son), who is today a born-again Christian, makes the point that the decline in American society, culture, and government began with a series of rogue Supreme Court decisions in the 60’s.

I would add that this marked the beginning of when judges began reinterpreting our organic U. S. Constitution, and started legislating law from the bench.

By so doing they went against what was then over 184 years of established legal precedent, and began instead to reinterpret our organic Constitution as a “Living Constitution,” which meant that they started redefining the original intent of our founding fathers, and began to say that our Constitution was a living document that evolves and changes with time.

Consequently overtime, this bogus ideology has served to diminish our Constitution into being a mere reflection of whatever “Politically Correct” nonsense happens to be in vogue at any particular time and is the flavor of the month.

This sort of thinking as brought us to the point today, where there are no longer any absolutes, and there is no absolute right or wrong; where politicians operate as they please, even lying to the American people because the ends justifies the means, and they know that the bought and paid for American media, who are owned and controlled by the same evil oligarchy, will not hold them accountable, and so they get away with it.

Have you not noticed that under today’s system, that it’s perfectly okay for elected politicians to lie and to mislead the American People, they have no qualms about doing that and they do it all the time (virtually every time they open their mouth), and for them it’s just considered business as usual; but for one of us to go before Congress and lie to them means that we go to jail. Folks what is wrong with this picture?!

I mean truly these people who are at the top of this de facto D. C. Corporation all seem to think that we’re all dummies and that we lack the will and nerve to stand up to them and stop them.

They’re playing us all as you would a Stradivarius violin and I think it’s about time we stop just going along with their evil agenda and program, and say enough is enough!!!

You all know that what I’m saying here about the corruption and lying is true, and yet all most will do is joke about it every election period, and use it as an excuse to not get involved, and to let our country continue to go to hell in a hand basket!

I would add also that what began in the sixties as an effort to change our long standing Judaic/Christian culture and values, was but another piece in a well thought out strategy, that was put in place over 92 years prior, in 1871, with the passage of another unconstitutional piece of legislation called the Act of 1871.

This was done in direct contravention of our organic Constitution, and its purpose was to changed our only de jure (lawful) from of government from a Constitutional Republic into what we are today, which is this de facto UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION, which is wholly owned and controlled by a foreign cartel of private international banksters.

Who I might add also wholly own another privately held corporation, called the Federal Reserve.

This means folks that even if we are able to do away with the FED, as some are saying will happen today, and transfer everything back over to the Department of the Treasury, as our Constitution states, and yet still we fail to rid our government of this corrosive and corrupt de facto Corporate System, and ergo the Banksters who influence it for their own benefit and profit are still in place, then we haven’t really changed anything at all, because the exact same people who got us into this mess will still be in charge!!!

What is needed is that we do a total and complete housecleaning in our nation’s capitol, starting at the very top, including past and present Presidents and Congressmen, who have willfully violated their oath of office and have for personal greed and ambition, sold us out to these other outside interests groups.

It means that we no longer operate as a de facto corporation, whose power flows from the top down, but instead we become once again what our founding fathers originally intended us to be, which is a Republic, where the flow of power comes from bottom up, from “We the People,” which begins at the local municipalities, and the states that are formed by them!

It means  that we elect men and women to office who actually will represent us in the office of President, the House, and the Senate; that we put in office men and women who are actually going to represent our interests, to serve us, and to do what’s best for our future and our country; and are NOT working for outside interests groups, private banksters, mega corporations, and lobbyists, as is the case today!

We need to understand that we didn’t just get in this position, in this downward spiral that our nation is in, overnight.

All of this is the result of a long thought out strategy and plan, from the pit of hell (and I mean that literally), which really started before our nation was founded, but which is today being implemented in our country by these long established international banksters, to reprogram the basic structure of our society and culture, in order to undermine our Constitutional Republic, and to force upon us a “New World Order.”

The ultimate goal and intention of this New World Order is in fact what we are seeing the beginnings of today under this Obama Administration, and that is the complete elimination of the middle class, and the conversion over to a two class society made up of the very rich, who will presume themselves to be the “Master Race” so to speak (taking off from where Hitler failed), and the very poor, which includes all the the rest of us, which they intend to make their slaves, or if you will their worker bees.

You will notice today that virtually everywhere you look in our society, in the news, from our politicians, and even among the people on the streets, whenever they are talking about what form of government we have, invariably we are called a “Democracy.”

This in fact shows just how successful these Globalist Banksters have been over the years, in their efforts to reprogram and to re-engineer our society, because if you will bother to look, the use of that term and that presumption that we are a democracy could not be more inaccurate; and it is in fact a total and complete misrepresentation of our history.

That’s why you’ll not find that term “democracy” anywhere in any of our founding documents; and the reason for that is because our founding fathers did their homework and they knew all too well that EVERY democracy in history has ALWAYS ended up exactly where we are today, controlled by an oligarchy!

That’s why pursuant to our U. S. Constitution, our founding fathers defined our only de jure form of government as a Constitutional Republic.

It is very important today that we understand what the differences are between a Democracy and a Republic.

 What is happening today I believe is an answer to prayer that the evil deeds and agenda that these people have for our nation is being exposed all over the place, but it is still up to us to stop then, and that won’t happen as long as we just continue to go with the flow and follow these criminals as dumb sheep, and bow to whatever they tell us to do!

They are the law breakers because they have to a man violated our Constitution, which they ALL swore an oath to preserve, protect, and to defend; and they need to be held accountable by the People! After all they work for us and we pay their salary… do we not???

So why for the love of God are we allowing the tail to wag the dog?

When it comes down to it, those Globalist Banksters and the crowd of corrupt politicians, the media, and others who have been bought by them, only represent about 50,000 people… and so it’s them against the entire world! Folks, I think the odds are on our side.

The point is these lying banksters and politicians are not going to change their spots, and nothing is going to change this downward spiral that our country is in until we change, and stop putting up with their nonsense!!!

As I promised, below I have included an interview with a former IRS agent, who tells his story about how when he brought up the inconsistencies of the IRS code to the higher ups in the IRS, about all of the discrepancies he found there, he was forced to resign, and then when he took his case to the Clinton Administration,  he afterwards found himself facing criminal charges, all in an effort to silence another Whistle Blower!

Joe Banister is pictured on the left

Joe Banister is a licensed CPA and is a former special agent of the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and is an IRS whistle blower.

He has appeared on the television program “60 Minutes II,” and has publicly challenged the conduct of the IRS concerning legal issues regarding taxation.

Mr. Banister is believed to be the first and only IRS Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent ever to conduct an off-duty investigation about claims that the federal income tax is fraudulently administered and enforced. After confronting top IRS officials about the validity of those claims, including his own IRS supervisors, he was encouraged to resign and did so from the IRS on February 25, 1999. He later took his case to the Clinton Administration and subsequently found himself facing trumped up criminal charges, all in an effort to discredit his voice. We all have heard that happening before, haven’t we?

The interview begins with the last part of an interview with political commentator Malcolm Out, where he’s talking about the recent NSA spying revelations.

These people who are undermining our Constitution today, and are intentionally undermining and weakening the sovereignty of our nation, all in order to ram their New World Order down our collective throats, are worse than bad… they are TRAITORS, everyone of them!

Take action today! You can start by praying and asking God what you should do, because we aren’t going to make it without God’s help!

One thing we ALL can do is start by getting the word out and let your voice be heard!

The next thing you can do is sign up with the rest of us freedom loving Americans, and join the already re-inhabited Republic for the united states of America!

Also if you know of anyone who is going through a foreclosure, I would strongly recommend that you direct them to the following website, called HISAdvocates.org.

A WAKE UP CALL FOR AMERICA… the question was asked, “What can I do?” Here are some suggestions…

“And how do you suggest we turn this around…I don’t think anyone has an answer, otherwise we would all be on board.”

What follows is my response…

W​e each can do our part, as watchman on the wall… and then we do what God tells us to do. ​

As for me I’m trying to do my part by banging on this keyboard several times a​ today, sending out emails and also doing this blog. 🙂

The first thing we ALL need to do is pray according to 2 Chronicles 7:14; next ​thing we get the word out as to what is going on.

We can’t fight an enemy we don’t recognize and don’t even know what it is.​

 In Colonial America it was primarily the preachers who did that.

 We have a Republic that is already re-inhabited​,​ ​and ​most all of our 50 states are already on board with it.

 This ​movement began back in March of 2010.​.. how many of you knew about that? Don’t look for any of this information to be announced on the evening news, because it won’t be.

How does that work?

Ninety plus percent of our media in American today is controlled by only 6 corporations and that boils to really one group, because if you look at the board of directors who sit on each of these 6 corporations you will find the same names repeated over and over again.

Media Consolidation Chart

In 1983, 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the U.S.  At the time, Ben Bagdikian was called “alarmist” for pointing this out in his book, The Media Monopoly.

In his 4th edition, published in 1992, he wrote “in the U.S., fewer than two dozen of these extraordinary creatures own and operate 90% of the mass media” — controlling almost all of America’s newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, records, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies.

He predicted then that eventually this number would fall to about half a dozen companies. This was greeted with skepticism at the time.

When the 6th edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 2000, the number had fallen to six. Since then, there have been more mergers and the scope has expanded to include new media like the Internet market.

In 2004, Bagdikian’s revised and expanded book, The New Media Monopoly, shows that only 6 huge corporations —

        • Time Warner
        • Disney
        • Murdoch’s News Corporation
        • Bertelsmann of Germany, and
        • Viacom

          (formerly CBS) — both these last two now control most of the media industry in the U.S., these two companies make up four and five, and

        • General Electric’s NBC is number six
http://www.corporations.org/media/ 

These people who are in control of all of this, who are literally the owners of this D. C. Corporation, have one purpose and that is to see the establishment of what they call a “New World Order;” the Bible calls it the Antichrist kingdom and it will be a one world government and monetary system, in which they will rule as the masters of the world and we will be their slaves.

I don’t have to tell most of you who is behind this agenda, because if you are a Christian and if you know your Bible then you already know who is in charge… it is Satan (the devil).

Anyway, we need to support the Republic for the united states of American, which is already in place; and it is run by Christians… ​whose purpose is to educate the American people about this unlawful D.C. Corporation that runs our nation today, and has run it for the last 140 years; and ​next we need to have the control ​​returned back ​ to We the People, under our only de jure (​lawful) Constitutional Republic.

 Paul told us to not be ignorant of the enemy’s devices; and Jesus told us to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

Do your homework and know your history:

 This man who is speaking in the video below is a personal friend and a brother in the Lord, whom I have known for over 15 years.

 Please listen to what he is saying.

You each need to do your own homework to see whether these things are true, or not?!

 I have done so already.

​This movement to take back our country is being done lawfully without violence and we need to pray for it and support it.

Remembering a bygone era… how far we have fallen as a nation!

Remembering a bygone era…

How far our nation has fallen from where we once were!

by Skip Barland

I like this article by Jay Leno, and I thought you would too.

The point is, regardless of when you were born, there’s a message here for everyone!

To those of Us Born 1930 – 1979

by Jay Leno

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn’t get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.

As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes.

Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and no one actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon.

We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar.

And, we weren’t overweight. WHY?

Because we were always outside playing…that’s why!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day.

And, we were OKAY.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Play stations, Nintendo’s and X-boxes.

There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD’s, no surround-sound or CD’s, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping pong paddles, or just a bare hand and no one would call child services to report abuse.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment.

Imagine that!!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever.

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.

If YOU are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.

While you are at it, forward this to your kids so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it?

The quote of the month is by Jay Leno:

“With hurricanes, tornado’s, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?”

____________________________________________

Personally, I am glad to have grown up in this time period and I strongly feel that we as a nation would do well today to remember how far we have fallen from where we began!

The truth is to the extent our nation has virtually abandoned the faith of our forefathers, and has removed the Bible, prayer in the classroom, patriotism, and all teachings from the Bible on the difference between right and wrong from the public schools, our nation has been on a steady slide downward.

You think I’m kidding?

It was in 1963 that in the ‘wisdom‘ of the United States Supreme Court that  God was officially removed from our pubic schools, and just look at what has happened since:

A. Young People

1. For 15 years before 1963 pregnancies in girls ages 15 through 19 years had been no more than 15 per thousand.  

After 1963 pregnancies increased 187% in the next 15 years.

2. For younger girls, ages 10 to 14 years, pregnancies since 1963 are up 553%.

3. Before 1963 sexually transmitted diseases among students were 400 per 100,000.

Since 1963, they were up 226% in the next 12 years.


B. The Family

1. Before 1963 divorce rates had been declining for 15 years.

After 1963 divorces increased 300% each year for the next 15 years.

2. Since 1963 unmarried people living together is up 353%

3. Since 1963 single parent families are up 140%.

4. Since 1963 single parent families with children are up 160%.


C. Education

1. The educational standard of measure has been the SAT scores, and SAT scores had been steady for many years prior to 1963.

From 1963 they rapidly declined for 18 consecutive years, even though the same test has been used since 1941.

2. In 1974-75 the rate of decline of the SAT scores decreased, even though they continued to decline.

That was when there was an explosion of private religious schools. There were only 1000 Christian schools in 1965.

Between 1974 to 1984 they increased to 32,000.

a. That could have an impact if the private schools had higher SAT scores. In checking with the SAT Board it was found that indeed the SAT scores for private schools were nearly 100 points higher than public schools.

b. In fact the scores were at the point where the public schools had been before their decline started in 1963 when prayer and Bible reading/instruction was removed from the schools.

c. The scores in the public schools were still declining.

3. Of the nation’s top academic scholars, three times as many come from private religious schools, which operate on one-third the funds as do the public schools.


D. The Nation

1. Since 1963 violent crime has increased 544%.

3. Illegal drugs have become an enormous & uncontrollable problem.

2. The nation has been deprived of an estimated 30 million citizens through legal abortions just since 1973.

Certainly compared to today these times, prior to 1963 were much better times for kids to grow up in!

At least they were safer times, and the reason was on a whole the American family unit was still intact.

Even though we had none of the modern technological advancements and conveniences that we all have gotten so use to today, and even though science and technology has increased by leaps and bounds, nevertheless I think even the casual observer would have to acknowledge the steady decline in the morals and standards of our society as a whole!

Now be honest, do really believe these statistics that I have just quoted above are a coincidence, and that they had nothing whatsoever to do with our decline?

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that this correlation is accurate and true… it’s as plain as the nose on your face!

I do know this, at least when I was a kid, most of my friends (in fact everyone that I can remember when I was in elementary school) still had both parents living under the same roof; and everyday at school began with our saying these words:

 “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

 Now mind you, I don’t mean to say we didn’t have our problems, because we did, but certainly nothing like what we see happening today… not even close!

First off, the most important thing is, where we have erred, is that we no longer as a nation collectively acknowledge the importance of having faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as did our Founding Fathers; and that is more than obvious by the fact that such teaching was long ago removed from our public education!

Next, all Judaic/Christian values, as are taught in the Bible,  were also removed, even though those same values are found clearly expressed throughout our founding documents; and the fact is our Founding Fathers all agreed (which fact can be verified in their own personal writings, as well as in our founding documents) that they mostly ALL agreed that our belief in God and and respect for His Word were necessary and foundational to our survival as a free people!

If we are ever going to survive much beyond where we are today, especially under this corrupt and unconstitutional de facto UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CORPORATION, it’s not a suggestion folks,, but rather it is mandatory, as per the instruction of God’s Word that our nation, and that be both YOU and ME, repents and turns back to the faith of our founding fathers.

And this is the history we have long since strayed from:

 As I remember, it was mostly during the sixties and seventies that any teaching about right and wrong, based on biblical values, were prohibited, along with our not being allowed to pray in the classroom; and it was also during that time that patriotism towards our country and our flag, were also removed from the curriculum’s of our public education system.

The fact is most people clearly want the benefits that we have all come to enjoy in our country; and the truth is people have for years come to our shores from all over the world because of the fact that no other nation in the history of the world has ever been as blessed as we have been, here, in our country.

Does anyone really believe, for even a moment, that these blessings are in any way coincidental to the fact that our nation is the ONLY nation in history whose government was founded based upon biblical principals and faith in God!

I think not, but people who want to believe that way are free to do so, but I think anyone with a brain would have to recognize otherwise!

But that’s just my opinion and also my soap box speech for today! 🙂

Pray for our country folks, because we are in serious danger today of losing it all!!!

Sounding the alarm for these last days…. let us all be mindful and listen to what the Spirit is saying to the church today!

   

Sounding the Warning…

For thus saith the Lord:  

“I have posted watchmen on your walls, and over your city (Jerusalem); and day and night these watchmen (these prayer warriors and intercessors) keep at it, praying, calling out to Me, reminding Me to remember, and they are to give God no peace until he does as he says…”    (Isaiah 62:6-7)  

________________________________

“Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

 For thus says the Lord ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

 For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it‘”. (Isaiah 55:6-7)

We as believers must learn to tap into the supernatural power of God, for these days in which we are living are becoming increasingly foreboding and ominous!

As we are told in scripture:

Withstand (the devil); be firm in faith [against his onset] rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace…will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen (and settle) you. – 1 Peter 5:9-10

The pressures that most people are living under today are growing increasingly worse, as most of those earthly things that we have always counted on for security and for peace of mind are slowly being taken away from us.

We are in those times of which Jesus warned us about, that He described as being like the birth pains of a woman in labor.

Jesus has unequivocally warned us in His Word that this time would be the worst ever, and that nothing before or after will ever be able to be compared to it!

This warning is for OUR benefit, for as Satan once ask for Peter, that he might sift him as wheat; you will note that Jesus’ response was not to say He would prevent his testing from happening, but rather Jesus said that He would pray for Peter that His faith fails not!

Like wise God is directing that same message to us today. These are troubled waters that God has directed our ship into, for we are not built for safe harbors, but rather we are made to be launched out into the deep.

It is in these deep waters where Jesus and the Holy Spirit hang out; and if we are going to be a part of what they are doing in these last days, in the flow of their anointing, then we had better prepare ourselves to be launched out to where they are!

Satan is putting more pressure on more people right now than ever before. He’s pressuring people in every way, mentally, financially, emotionally and in every other way that you can possibly think.

This pressure of late is on the increase, and it has gotten to the point that even governments are at a loss for what they should do; businesses don’t know what to do; and even families who are not rooted and grounded in faith are at a lost as to what they should do; but we in the Church have been given our road map (in the Bible) and our instructions by the Spirit!

The Bible clearly instructs us in the way which we shall go; and we can truly praise God because Jesus knows exactly where we are today, in ALL of our struggles; He knows what lies up ahead; and He has already gone before us to prepare the way for us!

We are told in Amos 3:7 that “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without He reveals his plans to his servants the prophets,” and just as he did with the prophets of old, God is still today speaking and guiding us, through not only His written Word, but also through His prophets as well.

The problem is in most denominational churches today they do not believe in the supernatural; and some even have said that the Gifts of the Spirit have died out with the Apostles, but that is NOT what God has said in His Word!

In 1st Thessalonians 5, in verses 19-20, we are clearly admonished to NOT despise prophecies, least we quench the Holy Spirit; but rather we are instructed to test all things; and hold fast to that which is good!

Haven’t you noticed that our minds are very much like parachutes, in that they only work when they are open, meaning that we are teachable?!

God’s written Word serves as our road map and our written guide of instruction in the ways of the Lord, while the Holy Spirit is our Spiritual Guide, who illuminates the written Word; He empowers us in our ministry; and He directs our path… and it is imperative that we, in these very troubled times, learn how to be sensitive to the leading of His still small voice!

We need both the Word and the Spirit activated in our lives today, or we as the church won’t even begin to be able to handle and cope with all the onslaughts that the enemy is bringing upon the world in these last days.

God has promised us in His Word that in times like this, that He would raise up a standard against Satan and all the powers of hell, but that standard is only being built up through the work of the Holy Spirit, in His church! Selah

God has warned us in His Word what things would be like in the Last Days, and one of the main things He warned us about was that many in the church would deny the Power of the Holy Spirit… and people this is a BIG mistake!

2 Timothy 3

Perilous Times and Perilous Men

3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.

And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8

 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.

What did Paul say about how we in the church need to be prepared?

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

In these troubled times it is extremely important that we stop trying to fight this enemy that has so consumed and taken over both our world and even our government in our flesh; that we stop attempting to do our battles through carnal means; that we stop evaluating what we are seeing in the world, according to man’s interpretation, though these false prophets of today, as seen on the evening news; but rather we must begin to see things afresh, from Gods perspective, through the eyes of the Spirit!

Below is a prophecy that was given by one of today’s prophets, who has a track record and history of being very accurate.

Check it, and pray about it… and see what the Lord might be saying to you today!

Two Witnesses: Truth vs. Heresy

A prophetic word from Bob Jones

True and False Witnesses: Bob was told there will be two witnesses to what God is going to do. These two will be the old and the young and they will both speak out the truth.

Satan will also have two witnesses – the young and the old speaking, and both will speak out heresy.

God’s truth will be established with the true witnesses and Satan will establish untruth or heresy by his false witnesses.

The two true witnesses will be young children and the old (or those who are over fifty), who will both bring messages of truth. Stock MarketSo don’t discourage children when they speak, instead listen to them. Their conscience is clean and they speak out of a pure unadulterated spirit.

Satan’s Witnesses: Floods and Destructive Winds – Some of these truths will be established by demonstration of fire and water.

The things Satan will be permitted to do will result in fire and water like floods, severe rain, mudslides, forest fires and extreme heat.

Satan will send floods in areas where he’s permitted – if intercessors don’t raise up against it.

There will be many signs in the heavens and in the earth that the natural eye can see, like rain and wind.

Satan’s two witnesses will bring floods and destructive winds. Everything that happens for good, Satan will send a counterfeit.

Destruction by the enemy can be stopped by intercession. The storm at sea that the Lord rebuked had demons behind them. These things can be stopped if we rebuke them.

We can determine which way it’s going to go. John Crying Out in the Desert in the third chapter of Matthew’s Gospel clearly describes the two witnesses.

John is baptizing in the wilderness of Judea saying “repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!”

John was the voice crying out in the wilderness preparing the way of the Lord; and the people from Jerusalem, Judea and the region around Jordan came to the Jordan River confessing their sins and being water baptized by John.

Here John gives evidence of the two witnesses. He calls the Pharisees and Sadducees a brood of vipers.

They were inspired by Satan in order to spread evil, deceit and heresy.

Their intentions were to turn people away from the one true God while those being baptized by water into repentance bore witness to God.

Jesus’ Witnesses:

Baptisms of Water and Fire Stock Market

These are two witnesses: the baptisms of water and fire – the baptism of water unto repentance and the baptism of fire unto sanctification.

Water baptism is repentance from the old nature, and in the baptism of fire God removes everything from us that is not of Him; and all of our self-centered desires are surrendered unto Him.

Jesus defended His self-witness while speaking to the Pharisees when He said, “I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me” (John 8:18).

Likewise, the two true witnesses (both old and young) bear witness of the baptism of water and fire, bringing forth a message of truth. Their words will be in one accord with the Father to establish His truth in the earth.

Jesus said, “It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true” (John 8:17).

In the same way Jesus, as an earthbound man, bore testimony of the Father in Heaven; so will the old and young earthbound witnesses bear testimony of the Truth establishing “on earth as it is in Heaven.”

Soul and Spirit God is raising up a company of Elisha’s, both young and old, who bear witness to the Cross of Jesus Christ. They are led by the Spirit of Truth and carry the message of repentance unto salvation and the baptism of fire.

Baptism of water is death of the old man while the baptism of fire burns away every ungodly thought and desire of the flesh. Then the body, soul and spirit are in complete unity with the Father.

Right now Satan is bearing witness of immorality and mockery. There’s a strong spirit of mockery coming out now and it hardens the heart where man cannot find Christ.

Yet we know that Jesus was the Word that bore witness; the Word was with Him (John 1:14).

Christ was also two witnesses because the witness is in the Word and the witness was in Him.

We are both soul and spirit; and now our soul must first agree with our spirit for us to get saved.

It is a commandment that we get water baptized. Then our spirit man will reign over us.

These two bear witness that Christ has come in the flesh.

A Lesson in Life… Take courage, God also has a “Pony” for you!

When Life serves you up lemons…

God’s Word will show you how to make Lemonade!

Ronald Reagan had a favorite story that he used to like to tell, it was about these two little boys… one was a pessimist and the other was an optimist.

‘A psychiatrist came in to treat the youngest, who was a pessimist. In trying to brighten his outlook, the psychiatrist took him into a room that was piled to the ceiling with brand-new toys. But instead of yelping with delight, the little boy burst into tears.

“What’s the matter?” the psychiatrist asked, baffled. “Don’t you want to play with any of the toys?” “Yes,” the little boy bawled, “but if I did, I’d only break them.”

Next the psychiatrist treated the young boy who was the ultimate optimist. In trying to dampen his outlook, the psychiatrist took him into a room that was piled to the ceiling with horse manure. But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist little boy issued the yelp of delight that the psychiatrist had been hoping to hear from his brother, the pessimist. Then he clambered to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop with his bare hands.

“What do you think you’re doing?” the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist.

“With all this manure,” the little boy replied, beaming, ‘there must be a pony in here somewhere!'”

____________________________________

Can we not trust God this way?

The answer is yes, but it takes our having been tried in the fires of life.

How do you normally react when life serves up lemons for you?

If you are like me my first reaction, most often, is not very good 😦 , it normally is not what I know that God would expect from His covenant child. But be patient with me, God is not through with me yet… I’m still under construction… and so are you.

The Bible tells us that when Jesus suffered adversity, when things went sideways for Him, which by the way is phenomenon that is common to ALL men (women too), that He did not retaliate or react in the flesh, which is usually my first response; but rather it says that He entrusted His case, His situation, His problem, in the hands of God!

Paul put it this way, “I’ve learned in whatsoever situation I am in, to therein be content!”

Notice he said “He learned!” This is not something that comes naturally for any of us; but on the other hand the Bible teaches us that with practice, while travailing through the fires and storms of life, that we can alter our behavior to reflect that of our Saviour.

For isn’t that the goal of life, as spelled out for us in the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) to have us each conform into the image of God’s only begotten Son, our Saviour, our Messiah Jesus?!

The Bible says of Jesus that He learned obedience through the things that He suffered (see Hebrews 5:8), and so shouldn’t we also expect to do the same?

These behaviors cannot be learned by reading a book, not even the Bible, they happen as a result of our being hammered out in the anvil of life, through the pain and disappointments of life, where we each have a choice, whether to trust and cast our faith, and our very lives, upon God and the trustworthiness of His Word, in the knowledge that what He has promised us He is well able to perform, and that’s regardless of what our circumstances and/or feelings may say to the contrary!

Look at what the Bible says of Abraham, who is the father of our faith:

Romans 4:18-25

18 Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping—believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!”[a] 19 And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb.

20 Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises. 22 And because of Abraham’s faith, God counted him as righteous. 23 And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded 24 for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.

It’s called living by FAITH, without which the Bible clearly tell us (see Hebrews 1:6) that without this sort of faith being activated and applied in our life, in every circumstance, that it is impossible for us to even please God… “for God is a rewarded of those who DILIGENTLY seek Him!” … and that means with ALL of our heart, mind, and strength!

There will be many times in life where we will feel as though we are being wrongfully or unfairly treated, but again the Bible says that if we are suffering underneath these blows and hits of life, suffering for doing what is right, then the Bibles says that God is well pleased with us.

These sorts of situations are bound to arise, but we mustn’t allow Satan to put resentment and discouragement (and worse of all unbelief) into our heart, and thereby cause us to react in our flesh, in a way that would be not only wrong, but would also possibly give us reason to regret it later on, for having lost control and maybe having said or done something that we later wish we hadn’t.

The Bible tells us that our words in particular are vary powerful, that because we are created in the image and likeness of God that our words can be a creative force for either good or evil; and if used carelessly they can be very destructive.

Once unleashed in an angry moment our words and the vibrations they cause for good or evil, can never be called back, but will always be floating out in the ether of space.

Could this be the reason why we are instructed to guard our tongue? I think so (see this link: http://www.openbible.info/topics/power_of_words).

In times like these, when we are being sorely tested through life’s difficulties and trials, if we will but allow God’s love and His Spirit to flow through us in our situation and allow Him to take charge over our flesh, the first trade off and benefit for us will be the development of our character.

Our strength will always come through in these situations as we learn to do as David did (see 1 Samuel 30:6), where at one of the lowest points in his life it says that He encouraged himself in the Lord.

God will ALWAYS make a way, even when there doesn’t seem to be any way of escape, or any relief in sight… God has promised us to NEVER leave or forsake us, and to be with us always through the fires and storms of our life… past, present, and future!

We must learn to be still in the midst of our storms, find the eye of the hurricane and there be still long enough to listen to what God is saying… and then obey!  Selah
