“Belly of the Whale” / Prayer

75364021-1200px The storm rages and Jonah is thrown overboard into the violent sea! You know the story. Is America throwing “church as we have known it” overboard? Statistics say they are. Is traditional church being rejected? And yet Jesus is not traditional church, and he rises above!

Have you ever noticed in your walk with God, how if you “defile” yourself for a time, then it takes a little while to get that intimate Anointing back? As Priest of God we’ve all been there. It’s a most basic lesson of understanding the power and Anointing of God. The Old Testament spoke of it symbolically as eating or touching unclean animals. Or if you had touched a dead thing. The O.T. painted us a picture how intentional sin can “defile” us, and then there was a time period of cleansing before the Priest could perform his priestly duties again. I call this our 3-Days in the belly of the fish.

Jonah was in a heck of a predicament, wasn’t he? And yet it took him 3 days before he could pray a prayer that God actually answered! Are we in that same spiritual condition?

“… And Jonah was inside the fish for three days and three nights. Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from inside the fish.” (Jonah 1:17b & 2:1)

Jonah had definitely slid into a distant relationship with God, and was sailing farther and farther away until the fish brought him back, and even then Jonah still had an attitude. God continued working on him even as God was saving Nineveh.

What is it going to take to get the church back into a position of power and Anointing with God? I believe I see the great fish coming! We are in the storm now, Jonah has been woken by the unbelievers and told to pray, but he has not yet admitted to this storm being his fault! It is his fault because he is not preaching God’s message that was given! Not only that, but he is sailing AWAY from the will of God, choosing to go to Tarshish rather than Nineveh, because those people were so evil! They deserve to die! (He decided.) Hard hearted.

Jonah was planning on living a blessed life in Tarshish rather than preach to the heathens the warnings and judgments of God. Have we not done the same? The storm is here! We have been woken and told to pray! But Jonah’s prayers were no good until after 3 days in the fish belly! We’ve not had our 3 days yet. We’re not Skypeople living by our wings. We’re destined for fish food.

So…what kind of a fish, and what kind of a belly does God have “planned” for us??? God is very intentional in these things, you know.

Then the sailors picked Jonah up and threw him into the raging sea…

Now the Lord had arranged for a great fish to swallow Jonah.

In our New Covenant God also warns us about a life of sin, unholiness, defiling our temples, which have become our very body. We are called to be Skypeople, not Earthdwellers living in defilement! We have forsaken our sacred ways! We don’t live by our wings, but we live as normal men! A life below, not above! A kingdom below, not above! A life of carnality, not Priesthood! We’d rather live in Tarshish!

We have much better means of forgiveness and restoration now, through Christ Jesus, but believe me, in severe cases, God still has his GREAT FISH! And the last verse of the O.T. is still a warning ending in the word “CURSE”! I believe we are there. We have pushed God’s buttons too many times and crossed an invisible line.

Now the heathens have not thrown us overboard yet, but they sure are beginning to think about it. HATE SPEECH! RACISM! GENDERISM! ABORTION, CONTROLLING POLITICS, HOMOSEXUALITY! EQUAL RIGHTS IN THE CHURCH! They have a lot of reasons already prepared. We’ve actually gone soft on these subjects, but they don’t see it that way, nor do they want us to have a chance to get stronger.

During the time of this election, they are throwing their lots and asking their gods for a revelation of who is the cause of this perfect storm? We already know who the lots fell to, Jonah. We have caused a political storm they will no longer tolerate. So the tolerant will cease to be tolerant in the name of being tolerant. 

In 18 more days the “50 Day White House Siege” begins. The lots are being rolled. The storm continues raging and it will not go away until God’s people get right with God again. Until they can pray the prayer that God hears.

Leviticus 18:24- > “Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, for the people I am driving out before you have defiled themselves in all these ways. Because the entire land has become defiled, I am punishing the people who live there. I will cause the land to vomit them out.” (Like the fish vomited Jonah?)

The land is defiled with hate, violence, lies, murder of babies, divorce, adultery, lust, materialism, selfishness, homosexuality, perversion, and how much more can it stand? In all this the church has been asleep. Now the storm is upon us. If God will hear our prayers as he did Nineveh, perhaps we can shorten out time in the belly. It’s up to us, the church, God’s people who paid the price for a ticket to Tarshish rather than following Jesus.

“The night watchmen found me as they made their rounds. They beat and bruised me and stripped off my veil, those watchmen on the walls.” (S. of S. 5:7)

“Night Watcher” #6 / Skypeople.

_apa_2015_briankushner_snowy_owl_kk

Sunday again, already? Yes indeed. We were having church last night with some people and we got into our Lord’s Sermon on the Mount. What is this higher place Jesus wants to take us? We follow Him into the Infinite, and away from finite.

Somehow, as we pondered the Beatitudes, I found myself sharing the name I have chosen for this little house of ours that is currently in such disarray as we are remodeling it into a House Church. We use to call it “The Little Blue Bungalow”, but in the journey of this transformation, things have taken a distinct turn towards a theme of “Birds”! And I shared last night I have nicknamed this place, “God’s Bird House”. People actually chuckled about that.

When we found a beautiful set of French Doors at a Habitat for Humanity store, and it was actually in our price range, (cheap!), as a bird would say, but we purchased it with great delight and dismay, loaded it in our old truck, and once it was installed, our room suddenly opened up into our small, private, backyard area. And when it did, we got inspired to create a bird sanctuary. It has been a delight. It is still in progress also, and has become the theme of this house.

This should be no surprise to me. Birds and I go way back. I’ve always had a thing about them. I even wrote the story of “Flapless”, which you can access for free in the side bar. And now, I find our ministry being used to inspire God’s people to live by your wings more than your feet! Stop running, slow down, and soar!

“I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” (Gal. 5: 16 KJV)

“So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. “ (Gal. 5: 16 NLT)

We are called to live by our wings!

When you look out our French Doors you see this >

It is amazing to me what a small area can be turned into. I’ve seen Jesus turn plain old water into wine so many times! Here’s another example. Our basement on this old house leaks like a cracked tub, so we have always had a sump pump. But where was the water to go? The city has allowed our front ditch to fill in and be of little use, and we’re not on city sewer, so I dug a hole! Just a basic pit for the water from our basement to go into and evaporate or sink back into ground. It was just meant to be a holding place. Well.. it turned into a beautiful small pond!

20200823_101002The city has checked it and it is clean. The water has filtered through the ground and that is all it is. Our basement pumps it into my hole and it became part of our bird sanctuary. It became an ecosystem of its own and the birds love it! But why am I sharing all this? People of God, we’re meant to live “higher”. And some of you immediately think dollar signs $ when I say that, and you reveal your lack of Spirit!

Remember where this message started? We we’re looking at the Sermon on the Mount, and the Beatitudes. Would the real Jesus please stand up! Because I don’t see many modern churches teaching what Jesus really said and did.  Everyone says they love the Beatitudes, but I don’t see many people living them, which tells me they speak with forked tongue, like a snake, not a bird.

Birds are used so often in scripture in describing the Christian life, the life of following Jesus, like a bird on the wing, riding the wind. Of course we all think of Isaiah 40:31… They that wait upon the Lord… and the eagle.

Birds are called to live in the high places. They are the skypeople, and so are we, unless we’re not. Why live as the ground dwellers when you can live by a different set of laws superseding the natural. We are called to soar!

We are in a season of great turmoil and who is to say how long this may be, or where it is going, but are you skypeople or ground dweller? You’re going to need your wings! In our Lord’s Sermon he challenges us with these words… “Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?” (Matt. 6:26) And I’m one of those people who love feeding them.

We love the Sermon on the Mount, the real Jesus, don’t we? But does this describe our life? So much fear today. So little real faith and peacefulness of soul. So much anger and politics.  So much “want” of money and material things. This message actually “begins” with our Lord declaring blessed are the poor! Less is more? Wow. Is it any wonder as we opened these words last night, I found myself sharing the theme and nickname of our little home… “God’s Bird House”? And the transformation slowly continues.

I wanted to share something a bit more inspiring and light of heart today in the midst of all this doom and gloom. Never forget our Kingdom is above! And we but passing through this place. Do we care about the ground dwellers? Yes we do, but we can only do so much. Just like Jesus, we teach the truth of the finite verses Infinite, but we can force no one to believe, receive, and be transformed.

In the end, I watch the turmoil of earthly people who live in flesh rather than Spirit, and I praise God again, over and over, for my wings. I catch the Wind and know peace. I invite others to believe. My wings were freely given and I seek to freely give. But true skypeople are still the minority in this post Christian nation.

Do not follow Esau. Do not trade your birthright for a pot of dirt. Do not live earth bound by fear and lack of peace when you are birthed to soar! Be of good cheer, little bird! Your heavenly father knows what you have need of! Peace be unto you.

This is my chair and my spot right by the French Doors looking out on the pond, the feeders, our 2 hummingbirds (such a delight), and other birds and small critters, as I pray, ponder, listen, and write.

“Night Watcher” #5 / Wisdom

_apa_2015_briankushner_snowy_owl_kk “But where shall wisdom be found?”

And where is the place of understanding?

Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

The depth saith, it is not in me: and the sea saith, it is not with me.

Whence then cometh wisdom? And where is the place of understanding?

Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.

Destruction and death say, we have heard the fame thereof with our ears.

God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.”

(Job 28 : 12-14 & 20-23)

I see America burning. The fires that are coming make current events look as nothing! This is the most dangerous election I’ve seen in my lifetime. It’s all about EMOTION, not wisdom. The Dems know exactly what they are doing, and it is pure evil. Between now and election we will see the flames of emotion stoked higher and higher, so that, the average person will be afraid for the Dems not to win! Some will even hold their vote, hoping the Dems win and we avoid all the violence that will break loose if they don’t! What kind of political party wants to win by way of threat of violence? An evil one.

How do you stoke the emotions? Become the helpless puppy in need of a protector. Paint yourself as the weak and violated, simply trying to survive the big bad bully. Stoke the flames of the people so that you might win by some miracle, but if you don’t, then there will be such an eruption that they will wish they never dared to oppose us. That poor little puppy dog will turn into a raging pit bull in the streets! If we can’t win the ball game, then we burn the ball park to the ground, and anyone in it!

This is so obvious to see. Who wouldn’t want Santa Claus for President? Who doesn’t wish Santa Claus was real? But in the real world there is no Santa Claus! The Dems are stoking people with a beautiful Christmas wish! And Trump is the Grinch because he knows things have to be earned! We reap what we sow! This is basic wisdom 101! They are sowing the seeds of destruction and unwilling to earn things honestly! And the worse part of all is, they actually believe this fake Santa Claus will be able to make their dreams come true by way of all this hate and destruction? This is how they think the world works? This is how Christmas comes? Not any Christmas I know!

Call it Karma or call it the Laws of God, these people will fall into their own pits and suffer greatly in the end, but the great tragedy is they will cause a lot of innocent people to suffer along the way. They will leave much destruction in their path, even hurting people they claim to love! How can any country have an election, when that very election threatens to set streets on fire and get innocent people killed? Is that the goal?

The Dems are not presenting themselves as just the underdog against a giant, they are presenting themselves as a helpless puppy dog being kicked and mistreated by its master! They know this card has power to ignite fire in the hearts of misled people! Again, the tongue is setting on fire the course of nature! Mrs. Obama even described voting as: Vote as if your life depends on it! What? Those are fighting words! Someone is going to kill you if Biden don’t get elected? Set those emotions on fire, Mrs. Obama!

Is there a way to throw water on this fire? From where can so great amount of water come? The church has lost the high ground and is completely helpless to face this great need. But if there is still any hope that God’s people can pray to heaven and call for such a rain, then we best be doing it now!

Yes, we still need to cast our vote for integrity on that day. We still need to stand up in the face of threats, lies, fire, and fear, and do the right thing, because that is what honest people do. But can we also call rain from heaven and prevent the horrible event of emotions run amock that lie straight ahead? This is a locomotive building steam and speed as it rolls down the tracks! The Dems are throwing in the coals by the shovel fulls! It is intentional! Mrs. Obama chose her words well! She knew exactly the message she was sending. They all do. The power of the tongue and dangerous words, feeding the flames of emotion!

Can we avoid Jonah being thrown overboard into the raging sea? Will the Bible be thrown into the fire and into the sea?

With frail Joe Biden, the Dems have a win/win; and they know it. If he don’t win the election, the streets will burn, and socialism will be that much closer to being achieved in their eyes. I watched a video of a man clear back in 1969, (I believe it was), who described in detail, I mean in minute detail the exact strategy of socialism to play the “race and hate” card to overthrow democracy in America. He knew every step and strategy back in 1969! I am watching every step he described being played out before my eyes! It’s uncanny! But not so surprising when you understand the true evil at work before us. May the God of heaven help us all in what is coming. We’re gonna need it. If you’ve never prayed before, this is a good time to start.

“Night Watcher” #3 / Jonah

75364021-1200px Who can tell me what the very last word in the Old Testament is? Who can tell me the last word God spoke before hundreds of years of silence? It is the word “curse”.

It’s Sunday morning and I’m in my quiet place watching and listening. I like to always write something on Sundays, and what am I hearing? There are many idols set in the high places that God’s people have forsaken. How have we forsaken them? Why do we bow to these idols? Where are the Elijah’s?

God spoke of a return of a type of Elijah, a type of John the Baptist, and a return of the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the children to the fathers. And then He threatened/ warned, if this did not happen…well… the exact words are: “lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” (Book of Revelation begins?)

We are at such a point again. The church, through the power of the Holy Spirit, has kept Antichrist at bay for many centuries, but scripture plainly says the return of the Lord will be after the Antichrist is revealed, and a great falling away of people. If the church is no longer anointed/ powerful enough to hold back the coming of the Antichrist and his revelation, then all the curses of the book of Revelation cannot be far behind. This is what is at stake. The stakes are high!

If America is not living in a perfect storm/ CURSE right now, then I don’t know what it is. We now see the Postal Services being added to the mix. They were on course to lose 11 billion dollars! So Trump appoints a man to “fix” it. But how do we know this is not his way of sabotaging mail-in voting? The honest answer is, you can’t! But is there a real problem with the Postal Service and also mail-in fraud? Yes there is! Again, a perfect storm! And each side wants control of that pawn! Are we reduced to pawns rather than prayer? If our prayers have no power, then yes!

Is this perfect storm/ CURSE actually caused by the worldliness of our modern day church? As Eli and his wicked sons lost the Ark of the Covenant  and brought about a King Saul; and as Jonah the prophet of God running from his assignment, are we in a God-given curse such as Elijah brought upon his day by praying for drought, famine, death, and CURSE? Elijah obeyed God in praying for a curse! Is that the prayer God is answering today?

Is it possible that there are times when a CURSE is the only FIX? And if so, get ready church, because until King Saul is finally overthrown, the Davids of this world must walk in wisdom as they continue bringing the next great move of God. Of which, David was Israel’s greatest moment in history! But before all that he was an outcast and criminal, surviving in caves! Ever feel that way?

Prior to that greatness, in the days of the Prophet Samuel there had been major problems in the House of God, by way of the priesthood of Eli and his sons. Lets just say they had become very worldly. This spiritual condition in the Temple contributed to the people demanding a “king”. God told Samuel to give the people what they wanted and they got “King Saul”, and he was impressive to look at, but as time went by some major flaws were revealed, such as great pride.

His personal pride was so so strong that he would give into people in order to make them happy and himself look good, but he disobeyed God. His pride was also so strong, he tried to murder David! He realized he had lost God’s anointing and now David had it. Saul was tormented of demons, and sought to kill the next move of God. Will we be guilty of such a thing?

On the ship that day with Jonah, the pagans were doing everything they knew to survive that storm, but nothing was working, and the ship was going down. I see our country even now, doing everything it can think of to stop this storm, but the words “peace be still” are not working. There is an evil in all the high places of our land, and it seeks to set on fire the course of nature until the foundations of our country all burn down and new foundations can be set. And in this fire, even as the Prophet Samuel was powerful in the midst of his time, and a shepherd boy named David was rising, there is a new wine and a new wine skin forming!

Which comes first, the wine, or the wine skin? I would say the wine! Why is there a need for the wine skin until the new wine? David was being anointed long before he actually gained his platform. But we are in this time, church. Whether we believe Microchurches are the answer, the new wine skin, or simply getting back to early church ways, which I believe Microchurches are a part of.

If Trump is reelected and brings prosperity back to our country, how will the modern church change? Will they not seek prosperity and blessing even more? Will the hate against a hypocrite church professing to follow Jesus, who forsook wealth and materialism, will not that hate continue growing until they will rise up and throw the church overboard? In this perfect storm, the curse either comes on the church now, or a greater hate/curse later. Jonah is on course to find his whale’s belly. And in the midst of all that, I believe David will come forth, and there will be many battles to be fought for the city Jerusalem to rise with the power of the Ark again.

“Night Watcher” #2 / Politics

75364021-1200px Another piece moves on the political chessboard. Kamala Harris for Biden V.P.! The mystery of who the Democrat Queen would be, revealed! The Queen is now in play.

As a “watcher” concerned about one main thing, the Kingdom of God in the earth, what might this move mean? My first thought is Biden chose well, or more likely, someone chose very well for him, because Biden is nothing but a Trojan Horse and Kamala is the real candidate.

Kamala appears to be a true “little guy” defender. Her story reads that way, and although she says outlandish things at times, such as “Trump is a criminal in the White House”, she is smart. And she has proven her ability to draw a line in the sand and recognize some kind of “balance” and “limits” as to how far we go with a thing. People do respect those who have the backbone to say I’m not buying everything you’re selling. This is acceptable, and this is not! So she shows an ability to reason with logic to a point, and many will be attracted to that. Her strength, logic, ability to communicate her points, and her personal story. But then there is also the Democrat platform itself.

All this combined with the platform of helping the “little guy” does appeal to a great number of people. Now here’s my point, church… all this greed and prosperity we’ve been preaching while ignoring serving our fellow man in need has created a pretty large “wealth gap”. And people are very tired of it. They might even be tired of it enough to take a chance that the Bernie Sanders Democrats might deliver on their promises. The rich are getting richer, and the gap bigger. This has always been a formula for uprisings and chaos. As our middle class shrinks, anger grows.

“The little people”, as we are called, are those of us who live very close to the poverty line, or barely maintaining a good lifestyle by way of credit cards. It’s a life of stress, desire, and struggle. A growing anger is building.  Why does everything cost so much? The Universities. Do you realize how many people there are who are buried under school loans? They see no way out! They are sick and tired of the struggle! Parents feel guilty! They are ready to overthrow a system that creates financial bondage!

The struggle for health insurance. The little guy strains his wallet every month trying to maintain some kind of health insurance, and then when they need it they still end up way in debt! Buried in medical bills! And it continues to be a problem even in retirement! Do we take care of our elderly? My dad retired with a nice package from Chrysler, but that package today has been downgraded, and only so many can find those jobs. My wife and I have no such package, and we are many.

At the age of 65, I had to roof my own house because it can’t be done for less than $7,000 if I hire professionals! And I have a small house! (1300 sq. ft.) But a professional “anything”, whether doctor, veterinary, mechanic, plumber, lawyer, carpenter, electrician, teacher, they all need to make big bucks to maintain their desired life style, and pay for their building and tools. (School loans). (Etc.) Therefore, all those who do not have such a life style can’t afford them! And this “money” frustration is obviously growing.  This money desire is a fire ready to burn this Capitalist system to the ground, whether the frustration is justified or not.

Personally…God has always taken care of my wife and I. I spent my life seeking an education in the University of God. I function a different way. Like Paul, I am very content whether I have little, or a little more. I don’t believe in excess. Let your moderation be known in all things. But most non-Christians have a materialistic hunger that must be fed! And today, most Christians seem to have that same hunger! There is nothing to bring a spiritual balance to the earth and curb the hunger, except maybe New Age religion, and people are flocking to it!

So…welcome to America in 2020 and a perfect storm. This is how I see it anyway. These are critical times. If the church continues denying the true power of God, then voting is our only hope of maintaining some kind of balance to our future. But if the Progressives win, lookout! Major change is on the way! Hate speech will sound from every corner! Revenge is a plate best served cold! Ice cold hearts will prevail! And if God keeps me here, I intend to still be watching and writing as I see it, but my target is the church more than the kingdom of man. My way of “fixing things” is by way of salt seasoning the whole, and changing things by way of “heart”, not laws.

The Queen is in play.

“A Small Footprint” #2

portland-protests-2 Greed is not green!

Minimalism without contentment is just torment. 

Jesus taught the life of the small footprint. As a follower of Christ, and someone who left traditional church because of its materialistic ways, I am very confused by a lot of what I see among Progressives. I’m beginning to think it’s just talk. I’m beginning to think that as a 65 year old country boy who follows Jesus, I’m more minimalist and green than most these people constantly screaming “Go Green!”

What was that on the Mag-Mile in Chicago on Sunday night? Mass looting by a bunch of violent greedy people from 11:00 pm. till early morning? 13 Officers injured? 2 people shot? Over 100 arrested? Hundreds breaking windows and robbing stores and banks in a mass attack? What is the true “WHY” in all this?

I see a lot of violence, greed, and confusion. They call for defunding police at the same time their hand is on the phone hitting speed dial for 911 because someone is breaking in their house! Media screams not to send children back to school at the same time NYC is? I have become Alice in Wonderland! I’ve been swallowed by the Rabbit Hole!

It’s easy to say you want to be a minimalist while you still have a bunch of nice stuff. I heard a lot of people saying: “You don’t live in Chicago! Mind your own business! These people deserve to have nice stuff too!” Oh really? Wow.

“Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.” (1st Tim. 6: 6)

The nature of “most” people is to want nice things. Personally, I think there is a lot to be said for seeking minimalism through the Spirit of God. True godliness with contentment is great gain. A fire is raging across this nation and many are not shouting about “color” as much as they are shouting they want “theirs”. But how do they want to get it? Hand outs? Special treatments? By way of hard work and wise consistent choices? Greed is not green.

I’m a watcher. I always have been. When I look at the fires raging I see a lot of discontent, contradiction, and ungodliness. No way will these people be happy even if more “special benefits” are given. They claim to just want a job and a chance. Well I got news, the jobs are out there even with Covid. I became a truck driver to earn money. It was hard work. There are lots of openings. My wife works for Cracker Barrel. They said they can’t get people to come back to work because unemployment is paying so well. My wife went back to work because that’s what honest hard working people do, even at age 62!

I see a bunch of hypocrites. Here’s a few tips. 1). Stay away from drugs. 2.) Don’t get drunk. Stay faithful and don’t sleep around! 3.) Stay honest. Don’t break laws! 4.) Educate yourself. Learn something! Become useful. 5.) Work hard. 6.) Be dependable and consistent. 7.) Prove yourself. 8.) Don’t be greedy! Seek a small footprint and be content! 9.) Seek wisdom. 10.) My own personal favorite: Love God and people! How can you say you love God and hate your brother?

I’ve watched a lot of people spend considerable money to buy a “Tiny House”. I didn’t know a small footprint had to be so expensive? But I’m waiting for the shows to come out about all the people who tried Tiny House living, and after 3 months were miserable! (And moved out.) These shows have not been allowed yet, but as a student of human nature, believe me they will come.

“Contentment”/ “Simplicity” is hard for a lot of people. They want things. It looks so good from the outside looking in, but once you’re in that tiny space and trying to find a place for the latest “thing” you’re craving? Those will be some very fun reality shows to watch.

Why is human nature so discontent? We always seem to want what we don’t have. When we finally get it, then it becomes old quickly and we want something else we don’t have. That is unless…you are a true minimalist. If you love simplicity and are truly content in small ways. How is it some of us have this and so many don’t? Who needs a mansion or fancy car with all the gadgets? What happened to the wisdom of less can be more?

Modern church has shot itself in the foot when it comes to materialism. What happened to “the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want? Since I left the complex and shallow modern church system to seek simple church and early church ways, my life has grown spiritually more than I ever imagined. I love our simple church and the people I fellowship with in our home, and everywhere. We call it > CHURCH EVERYWHERE.

Be still my soul. Seek peace.

God blesses those who work for peace, for they shall be called the children of God.

“New World Coming” #1 / Bibles?

“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

 Bibles burned in Portland? The American Flag and the Bible burning together! That should be no surprise to anyone. It was only a matter of time before their true hate would be revealed even more. “Once upon a time” the Bible and America were one, but the tug-of-war being waged between the New World and the Old rages on, and the Old is slowly sliding towards this New World in which the Bible, God’s Word, is not welcome! (At least not in its true form.)

Statistics show this once Christian nation is now Post-Christian. In other words, the Church is slowly losing the cultural tug-of-war, unless some new strength, some new wine, some new Anointing comes from somewhere. Do we have a plan, church? Or just more of the same. Maintain course. Maintain the slow slide. It usually accelerates towards the end.

When the New World comes, the Bible will be the most hated of all books, and will be considered the most dangerous of all books! Therefore, so will be Christians.

“So the Word became flesh and made his home among us.” (John 1:14a)

Modern Christian of today, do you understand that when Jesus said, “Follow Me”, that He was and is the Word, the Bible in flesh form? In other words, when we accepted the call to follow Christ, we were also accepting the call to follow the Bible, they are ONE.

In the same way as the Bible, in its true form, is not welcome in most Communistic countries, hence the underground church in China, it is not welcome in this New World coming. Where does that put us? In that fire pictured above?

The two pictures above are related. They are of the same spirit. I have written of the “Burning Man Event” in the Nevada desert. This same spirit of the New World coming pervades. What will be the role of the church in this New World? What will be your role as a Christian? Do we go underground? Do we end up 6 feet under, or raptured? Are we the wise or the foolish virgins?

I believe the easiest way to grow a new forest is simply keep setting fire to the old one until it all burns down. There is no great strategy here. Simply keep causing chaos, disruption, hate, and disorder until there is a “combustion point” and then grow a new forest out of the ashes of the old.

The Progessives no longer hide their true agenda. They have listed their goals. It is a Socialist agenda. That is the New World they want to grow, a Socialist and New Age religion agenda, and as they grow more angry, hate-filled, and desperate, they no longer care what they have to do to get it. They do not give pause to burning Bibles or our flag. These people are screaming out with the old and in with the new.

Is it really America’s fault that their life is so miserable, that they have it so bad, they want to burn it all down and start over? But this time, the Bible will have no part of its foundation. So what will be the foundation? Humanistic ideas. Man can do better than God. Man is god. Woman is god. And our Bible stands in direct opposition to the New World agenda. The Bible must burn!

Most Christians will probably ignore this Bible burning and excuse it as just a few people caught up in the emotion of the time. It’s not a serious thing, they will tell themself. But what if it is not just a few people? What if this small group is actually expressing the true feelings of a whole lot of people steadily growing in this country, and in this New World? Then what?

Hollywood is usually a pretty good picture of where we are going, after all, it is a major brain-washing and herd -manipulating machine. Pay close attention to what the new movies are cleverly seasoned with. Tell me it is just a small group of people.

“Of Doves & Demons” #1

 “…and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isa. 10:27b)

How do you win a battle of Love verses Hate, words verses guns, or doves verses demons? It cannot be done through the flesh. This brings us back to where we need to be, people of God. Our carnal ways will be our demise. We must relearn what we have forgotten. We must get back to where Jesus started us. BACK TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, and something called the ANOINTING!

In this world bullets are feared, and rightly so; but in the bigger world, the world this little world was birthed from, the Anointing is feared most of all, because of the Anointed One, whose name is the name above all names…Jesus!

But some tried to use the name of Jesus, and the demons said…Peter and Paul we know, but who are you! (Then proceeded to beat them!) There must be the Anointing. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof will fail. Have we forgotten His way?

Here’s our situation… as followers of Christ we are called to Love in a world that Hates, and especially hates us! How do we survive? How can we win? It’s Mission Impossible!

UNLESS… there is a God in heaven who will once again grant his power on us as he did Samson back in the day! But who of us are ready to pay the price of the anointing? Who of us are so hungry for more of God that He is all we can think about, and we seek Him as in the Song of Songs?

The HATE is evident to see, that is the problem, but now we need the solution to the problem. This new series “Of Doves & Demons” I am hoping will run for awhile. I think God has much to say and we have much to relearn. We have much to regain of what we have lost, as David bringing the Ark of the Covenant back into Jerusalem.

In just this past month, our little Fellowship that we like to call: “CHURCH EVERYWHERE”, has seen 2 unexplainable powerful touches of God upon a few people. I have longed for such things but never seen it before on this level! This is new for me! It was literally the power of a sovereign God touching hearts in a way beyond us! I honestly believe it was supernatural in nature, and the only thing different I have done is seek God specifically for His “Anointing”.

I have studied and sought. I am still studying and seeking and I must begin sharing thoughts as God inspires.

It is easy to see the strategy of the enemy> HATE. Steal, kill, and destroy! He’s actually not very creative. Powerful people are using their tongues to set on fire the course of nature. It is set on fire of hell! But they have a strange fire, God’s Word speaks of it, and we have a holy fire. Yes, the Church must get back to fighting strange fire with holy fire! This is the Anointing, and it is the supernatural power of God.

There is so much to say on this. It comes at a cost, priest of the Most-High God. Are we ready to perform the sacrifices we are called to perform? If we are, then just like Elijah, there will be fire from heaven! And the priest of Baal will fall!

A Final Word on Mike Adams?

BLOG-16-05-2017-2 So this is it. Murdered by harassment. Wow. He was under such pressure and hate that he was murdered by suicide. This is the hate of the Left, but no one will cry out for fear they end up like Mike Adams. The haters really do have the power, and it has always been so on planet earth when the church fails to hold the standard. When the salt fails, you get more and more decay, hate, violence, and death. The New World cometh.

So a man like Mike Adams had no security cameras at his home? Hard to believe. Maybe he wasn’t as smart as I would have thought. And these cameras show nothing? Are they blank? They did not show his suicide? Strange behavior? Nothing? No hint of anything? No close friends doubting this conclusion? He spoke of no plans with the money he was about to get? And his family has no remarks? No questions? Wow. The silence is deafening.

So if he murdered himself due to the pressures of hate and harassment, then those Haters are guilty of murder just as much as a cyberbully would be. Right? I mean, not guilty by law, perhaps, but by Spirit. However, before you Haters celebrate too much, karma’s gonna get you for that. You would say bad karma got Mike, but his hate does not justify your hate either. Tell yourself your hands are clean as much as you want, but karma is a tough dude to fool. Your karma comes. Good luck with that.

Based on the little information we’ve been given, compared to the ample motivations of people hating him, I am surprised this would not be deemed highly suspect? In my own mind, the death of Mike Adams is being swept under the carpet as quickly as possible, while I am sure there are many who are actually celebrating. What might they call such a party? A Hate Party? A celebration of death party? Hhmmm. How many might there be? Your hate, my hate; it’s a wonderful life. But again, karma cometh.

Well, if no one sees a problem here, if no one decides to pull the carpet back and give that very large and obvious lump a second look, then I guess it’s over. Another win for the Left. Good shot, Somebody. A 3 pointer? Is anyone keeping score? Who’s ahead? I’d call this a win for the Left. Move on folks, there’s nothing to see here.

Personally, I don’t have a horse in this race. Us Haters crucified my Horse many years ago, but he didn’t stay dead. Now I run a different race. But it will be interesting to watch if Mike stays dead, or someone resurrects him and his words. You can’t kill him twice. Dead is dead. I know I downloaded one of his books. It’s been very interesting.

I only ventured into this event because Mike Adams was so hated due to his words and beliefs, that as a follower of Christ, I felt a kindred spirit, and also Bernell Trammell we continue hearing nothing about. I have written much in previous articles about the rise of Eve. Her day is coming! But I would like to make one personal clarification.

My concern is “the Church”. That’s my Horse. The world is gonna do what the world is gonna do. I’m sure we’ll even have a womxn President someday. And when that happens I hope she does an excellent job. But the church itself is to run by a different standard than the world, and when the world finally gets around to coming down full-fire on her beliefs, like someone did on Bernell Trammell, that’s the day I likely die and get swept under the carpet. I can live with that. And I will live, and I’ll be back, just like Jesus and Bernell. Just say’n.

Wake up people, this wave is rolling, and it plans to roll over anyone in her way!

“I’m confused” Mike Adams/Bernell Trammell

7326378758_6998e8784a_b I’m beginning to think if you want to be shot dead, its as simple as checking the right boxes. It would seem that Mike Adams and Bernell Trammell both checked all the right boxes, and suddenly turned up dead of gun shot wounds!

Now here is why I’m confused, I thought the “Left” was against gun ownership? I thought it was the “Right” who loved guns and acted like animals? But if that is so, then why is it people on the “Right” who speak up with “words”, are mysteriously suddenly turning up shot dead by guns? Are we shooting ourselves? Why is it if you happen to be Pro-Trump, or Conservative in general, and you happen to be Pro-Jesus, or Christian in general, and if you happen to have personal opinions differing from the current mob mentality, and if you speak out your opinions just like the “Left” do, then you have a higher than average chance of turning up dead from lead poisoning! Just how does that happen? The Left are good at denying, but they always fail to give the jury credit for being smart enough to see past their lies! They have such high opinions of themselves, and such low opinions of us.

It is true that Conservatives try to be law-abiding and live by a code of “Live and let Live”. We tend to have a sense of fare-play and everyone has the right to speak their minds. We will even defend your right to do so!  But there is also a reason why many people on the “Right” believe in gun ownership, and I’m afraid the “Higher-Ups” of the “Left” are pushing the buttons of the “Right” in the hopes of causing just exactly what they know will happen…a Blood-bath!!!

You see, those on the “Left” who live in their Ivory Towers will not be the ones in the crowd when the HATE suddenly explodes! They know if they can get their manipulated herd to cross the line far enough, then once they cross that line, a sense of honor on the Right will demand a just response! And once that happens the Ivory Tower people are ready to swoop in like righteous angels and demand all the changes they ever wanted!

How do the Left do this? We see the damaged buildings and the destruction and looting of private property and yet when President Trump sends in soldiers to protect private property, somehow he is the bad guy! Some how what we actually have video proof of does not prove anything! Their lies are believed more than our own eyes! And if the Right decide to meet fire with fire, even though we have shown great restraint while the Left runs amuck, it will somehow all be our fault! How are they able to do this!

How do they do this? Well remarkably enough, what we are getting shot for…WORDS! They do it with WORDS and violence. HATE! I use to work in the Indianapolis Airport. All day and night long CNN played on those TV screens. We had no choice! How is that? They still own the major media, the major news papers, and the Universities, as Mike Adams would attest to if he were still alive today! But his books, his words are still with us. There is so much HATE on the Left it constantly boils over the top of their ever burning kettle. (And yet we are the haters.)

How do we prevent the blood-bath the invisible enemy so much desires? And can you believe as surely as the sun rises in the east, the Left will deny they are pushing our buttons. With a straight face, while their finger is pressing the button over and over, they will look at you across those camera screens and say, “We’re not pushing any buttons. You are! You shouldn’t have guns! You are HATERS! And we’re going to shut down your business, your livelihood, your church, your speech, until we rule!”

People on the “Right”, I know this is hard, but there must be an answer. How do we avoid the blood-bath? It would seem people on the “Left” do own guns and they are actually using them, contrary to what they constantly preach. Their preachers and prophets are wolves in sheep clothing, manipulating their people. They preach “down with guns”, and yet their media is silent when they use them! CNN is silent on the darndest things! And very quick to draw if we make the slightest mistake! I don’t know how they live in their skins? Maybe that’s why snakes have to shed their skins so often.

I am beside myself. I see this coming and don’t know how it can be stopped, because people have a right to defend themself, and sooner or later they will, and that is exactly what they want…more chaos…more HATE…more pain on the “little people”, as long as it don’t get to them.

Wouldn’t it be nice to see those in the Ivory Towers of the “Left”, actually have to pay a price for the laws they have broken? You know the ones I speak of. This is why the “Left” is so emboldened, they know they usually get away with it. They are the elite! We are their peasants to manipulate. They will tell us what we need to know. They will determine what truth is.

Sorry to be so doom and gloom. But I see this train coming down the tracks. Louisville came so close to it just this past weekend! That was a potential powder keg ready to blow! The media and Democrat politicians need to stop protecting the VIOLENT protesters and law-breakers! They must face serious consequences! Or the people themselves will see to it they do! And that will not be good for anyone! Not even the Left! But you don’t care, do you. Destruction serves your ultimate goals.

I’m simply the average joe living in the trenches of what has become a war zone. I look around and try to make sense of what I see and hear. Maybe I’m all wrong. Maybe I don’t see what I think I see. Maybe Mike Adams decided to kill himself, and Bernell Trammell, a very nice man, should have minded his own business and kept his mouth shut. Maybe I shouldn’t be giving my opinion. Who am I? Can anyone verify what I think I see? Or am I the crazy one? They say the crazy don’t know they’re crazy. But I see an ocean wave rolling towards land, growing as it rolls, and its got the church’s name on it. Wake up people! We need God’s power again! People like Bernell are being murdered in the streets! A George Floyd causes all kinds of havoc upon the land! But a Bernell Trammell? Hardly a word. A Mike Adams? Guess he asked for it.
