“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 #8 / 21 Days

75364021-1200px Do you see it now? I’ve been declaring this for weeks, the escalation of emotion, Jonah being thrown overboard into the sea of a perfect storm, the Democrat game plan, and yes, they are not innocent, but well aware of the fire they are intentionally setting! And now we have it in writing! The future laid out for us! And a 21 Day countdown to another escalation! White House Siege! Googling that should bring it up.

Of course none of the Democrat names are on the war plans. And it wouldn’t matter if they were. Things have been proven before, but they are above the law. I have seen this coming for months, but I am a watcher, only the blind or the guilty could deny it now.

Surely most Americans will not vote for the Party promoting violence to win. So Trump wins again. Then what? He cheated! They already are saying he cannot legally win! How can they know such a thing? And then our country explodes! Will Jonah be thrown overboard into the raging sea? What will it take to get control? Will we see martial law? Of course we will. Do we not see the hand writing on the wall?

Are you watching it build? Do you see this growing wave of hate, lies, and emotion? Are you prepared to soar above, or will you be caught in the tsunami? Will you be a part of it? In their eyes President Trump must not win at any cost, so if he wins, then the country must be so devastated that he will spend the next 4 years just trying to repair all the damage. Consider these quotes >

We will lay siege to the White House. And we will sustain for exactly 50 days.

…we’ll inspire a global movement of systematic change… A Global Spring… a cultural heave towards a true world order.

We will not let Trump steal the election.

A massive collective action of the sweetest kind of disobedience.

There is also something said about them ensuring a peaceful transition of power. What? The only transition of power they want is into their hands, and none of it has been peaceful so far! President Trump has been under attack from day one! And they are just waiting for Conservatives to retaliate. They know many people are going to be hurt and suffer in this fire they build, and yet they build it anyway?

Again, these groups claim they only intend peaceful protest, and yet somehow there has been much violence. These people know it will only take one little spark to ignite the explosion. I expect if something does not happen to cause it naturally, then they are prepared to light the flame intentionally. And if Trump wins, that is all the spark they need. But what if the Republicans did the same? What if we were threatening violence if Biden wins? How is it that one party is prone to this kind of behavior and there is no vast exodus from their ranks!? No being held to accountable? Yes…they are very sly with their words…careful to send out sparks…but never be the actual fire themself. They are so smart. They are so innocent. But truth always eventually wins. If not in this life, then the next. In the meantime, we suffer.

This must be more of the “good trouble” they keep promoting. “Sweet kind of disobedience”? But what is God telling you to do in this perfect storm, child of God? Do we not have a responsibility in all this? Abortion is still a horrible crime against humanity, and Planned Parenthood continues with blatant disregard to the truth. Most scientific biologist will tell you that life begins at conception! How ungodly, as a nation, we have become!

As followers of Christ what does all this mean for us? Does God still have a mission? As in the days of Noah, more and more violence breaking forth, the earth filled with violence! Again, the hand writing is on the wall! Can we be the peacemakers in such a great fire? But we are the HATERS! That is the lie they believe! Are you a HATER? Is it not so plain how the enemy has worked in all this? We’re not the violent! How are we the HATERS?

Jonathon Cahn has already had a huge prayer and repentance rally planned for D.C. area on September 26th. This has been planned for months! The White House Siege protest begins on September 17th. Both these groups will be in the same area, and how will this be portrayed by media?

The darkness grows…the darkness comes. There are those setting the flames for violence to fill our streets and martial law required! Surely you see it now! They claim Trump won illegally, and yet they are the ones actually trying to win illegally by threat of violence, and in plain sight for all to see! How has America become this? How has a party become this? How is a party able to get away with this? Our right to vote the way we want is under threat of “violence” by one party and one party alone!

I am a watcher and I will continue writing what I see, unless they shut me down, which wouldn’t surprise me a bit. Hopefully I’m too small for them to notice. But here again, one party wants to silence free speech! How can anyone not see this?

Our country is already on fire. The kindling is already set and burning. We have a date with destiny already planned. The perfect storm increases in its hate and Jonah is the target. The last word of the Old Testament is “curse”, and we are in it, if a revival does not sweep this nation and turn the hearts of people back towards God, and one another. What is the price we’re going to have to pay, like Jonah, before such a revival can happen?

If you should fail…there is One who knows…One who cares.

He watches every step.

He too is a…

Spirit walker.

Xyli_Snowy_Owl Are we Skypeople or Earthdweller? They are two very different ways of living. One lives by their wings, the other by human reasoning. One has a focus on Infinite, the other finite. One goes on forever, the other trapped in the numbers. One walks by what he hears within, the other by what he sees without. What we hear from above, or what we see from below. Two very different ways of living. It cannot be hidden or faked for long.

Which you are always shows.

Jesus said, “Follow Me.”

“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” #4 / Old Wine

75364021-1200px I spent most of my day today with the Lord. It’s now about 10:30 at night and my mind rumbles with thoughts of frustration at a message I just heard. Its been at least 6 months since I listened to a message from the last Traditional church I left. It was a church of 800. They held two Sunday morning services and they can be heard on their Internet site.

After leaving 3 years ago, I have made it a point to occasionally check in on what they are currently preaching. So far the messages have never made me regret leaving, and today’s was exceptionally sad. The preacher was pleading for people to come back after weeks of the Covid virtual church services. It seems a lot of people have not been coming back, and not just this church, but many.

The Pastor started out by recognizing this problem has been going on way before Covid, but the pandemic had now shifted church exodus into hyper-drive! He gave some statistics. He admitted we have slid into a post-Christian culture. This has happened while under the watch of Traditional church, and yet he was presenting his case for a return to Traditional church! What’s the old saying? You can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results? But he was.

He gave statistics that this year was already on course to see a 15% drop in church attendance even before Covid! And now, it would be even worse. He said that just to keep up with the birthrate in our country, you need 10,000 new churches every year! But instead of 10,000 churches opening, it would be 10,000 closing, causing a 20,000 church short fall! One-third of churches are about to close their doors due to Covid, and yet he continued only offering the same pattern of church we have had for many years now. He kept preaching the old wine that is being rejected.

He never once mentioned the Micro church movement. He never once mentioned Home churches. He spoke of the church in the book of Acts but never once mentioned them as Home churches. Instead, he went to the Old Testament to try and prove the need for large churches! He used the Old Testament temples as a pattern! This cannot be supported by the New Covenant, so he went to the Old, just like Pastors do on tithing, but Jesus fulfilled the Old and gave us the New!

By Old Testament standards, Jesus could not even be a Priest, let alone our High Priest, because he was not of the tribe of Levi. Jesus was of the tribe of Judah! Jesus made major changes in what we call church. He fulfilled the Old and took everything to a higher level. The book of Hebrews is excellent on this very subject.

Anyway, it was so sad listening to this man give the statics, the evidence, the proof of how badly our modern system is not working, and yet plead a case for still working it! He also explained people are dropping off the Virtual church services also! Virtual church is not working! It is called “Screen Fatigue”! How very interesting.

In our little Fellowship we have had no need for virtual church, and our Fellowship has continued functioning without a hitch. But this Pastor insinuated through his entire message that a Home church is not really “gathering yourself together”. He insinuated it is the “falling away”, and we need to get back in the four walls of the church buildings. Never mind Jesus said where two or three are gathered in my name, I am in their midst. He never explained that scripture. But most likely his big church is bleeding not only people, but money! House churches won’t work to his big church agenda. His message was so full of his personal bias that it defiled the whole message.

Now when I left 3 years ago, everyone was excited that big changes were coming to that church. I told my wife then, churches are always saying this. We will see if they can turn this big ship? Well, evidently they did not, because guess what…big changes are coming to this church again! Wow! Get excited everybody! But what are the big changes this time? What is the new vision this time? The people are tired of the hype and old wine. They are leaving looking for the fresh bread from heaven. People are realizing this king has no clothes, and they are voicing it by simply leaving.

We can already see Jonah being thrown overboard, but if we think this is bad, be ready for November elections! The Progressives already blame the church for electing Trump. They see “Jonah” as the cause of this storm! And no matter who wins in November, there is likely going to be an explosion! Forewarned is prepared. Right?

On that note, I warned people against the church becoming political. This Pastor also mentioned he knew many churches being torn apart by politics! Preach the Word! And if that don’t cause someone to vote right, then nothing will anyway! Don’t sacrifice your testimony in Christ over politics! Change hearts through the Gospel of Christ, that is our assignment as priest in this earth.

Church…get ready for November. Most of the church has painted itself into this corner. If persecution is required to reshape the church, I see it coming. So be wise and make spiritual preparations now. Get back to majoring on the Gospel majors, and minoring on the minors. David and his mighty men endured the storms and eventually brought the Ark back where it belonged. Seek the anointing. Only God’s power back in the house will change the day.

“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.

“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.

“Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes, and harmless as doves.” (Matt. 10:16)

“Hate on Display”/ Bullying

7326378758_6998e8784a_b Yesterday’s “Hearing?” inquisition on AG Barr was painful to watch! Who are the Haters? Yesterday it was plainly revealed for the world to see.

Hate has become a topic at this site. Do not confuse this articles and other recent articles as politics, because it is not. But somebody keeps putting their gun-sights, the cross-hairs of their scope on my head so they can shoot bullets called Hate Speech! And believe me, there is no lack of examples of Hate to draw on, of which the Democrats plainly showed their colors before the whole world, just yesterday! O.M.G.! I can’t believe how bad it was! It made my skin crawl! But what a gift they have given all seekers of truth! You can no longer claim you did not know.

No wonder nothing gets done in D.C.. It’s full of Hate and bullying! I can still see in my mind one of the female Democrats yelling at AG Barr, words along this line, (not exact quote), YOU’RE MAKING ME MAD, MR. BARR! STOP INTERRUPTING ME! And all the man was trying to do was answer the questions she asked! What in the world? Such HATE, anger, and bullying on display! Who are these children? Who are these Haters and bullies? How do they get elected? I thought being a “bully” was one of our greatest lessons we try to teach our children not to do, and yet our Democrat (Leaders?) put on such a display as this? Please cover your children’s eyes and ears!

They have given all the video proof needed that they are GUILTY as charged! They are kings with no clothes, but too many people are afraid to say so! Because the Left has guns! And lies! Lies shouted from the media they own! Verbal assassination! And if that don’t work, then gun-shot assassination. No wonder their is so much fear. When you see that kind of HATE, a “normal” person will experience fear! (And they know it.)

These are the people who keep putting me in their gun-sights for verbal assassination, because I believe the BIBLE. Because I try to live by BIBLICAL principals. Principals I force on no one! But only want to be able to answer their questions! Questions they themselves ask! And yet, like AG Barr, we are shouted down! And if that don’t work, we better keep our heads low because more HATE is coming our way! In the form of real bullets! Destruction of our businesses, threats to our families, and bullets! (From guns the Left don’t believe in! Or so they say. Liars! Hypocrites!)

We all need to cool our heels! Everyone needs to take a chill pill! We’re about to blow! If this election shows any kind of signs of fraud, sabotage, or cheating in any form, all hell is going to break loose! And what I fear just as much, what I see coming is what we call REVENGE!

The Dems I saw on display yesterday, they don’t just want to win, they don’t just want the power back, but they want REVENGE! The HATE that was on display for the whole world to see was seething!

As HATE became a subject at this site, I chose to use a picture of a jungle cat snarling. You see the hate in those eyes! You see the fangs ready to devour! And you see that long tongue hanging out there! We are being set on fire with those lying tongues! And that is their plan. We are the manipulated masses. They prove the Bible true everyday.

“In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your whole entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself.” (James 3: 5-6)

The HATE I saw on display will stop at nothing short of revenge, and if so, then America will burn, we will be on fire, and you have to ask the question, “Is that what they actually want?” It is “the” legitimate question.

If tearing down what America has always been is their goal, to destroy a nation that was built on a Biblical foundation, then yes, that would be their logical goal. What better way to regrow a forest than burn it down? It only makes sense. And who will burn the most in this fire? Not those in their Ivory Towers. Us little people are the wood for their campfire to enjoy. They will enjoy s’mores while we burn!

I have not gone down this road with this blog site easily. I believe Jesus would have voted, and would have shared opinions when asked, even given advice, but he never became political! His focus was the Kingdom of God. It has always been my desire to do the same, and so when I began writing these recent articles about Mike Adams and Bernell Trammell, I was worried if I was becoming political? I almost backed away, but then I realized I’m not targeting politics, I’m targeting HATE! And TRUTH! And Jesus did the same!

ANYONE, who displays HATE like an animal is subject to exposure on this site. Everyone has a right to their “opinion” and the freedom to speak it. When you force silence on someone against their own will, you have become the animal! When you ask questions and then gag the person trying to answer, you have become the HATE-FILLED insane!

Jesus was murdered because of the HATE of the religious Jewish leaders at that time. He threatened their positions of power with truth. He was exposing them. He wasn’t afraid to call them the naked kings they were, so they HATED him. They even bribed people in the crowd, paid them with MONEY! To shout, “Let Barrabas go!” But crucify Christ! Jesus, who was innocent! Jesus, who had done nothing but heal them, feed them, teach them, and love them! He told them the TRUTH! And for that he was HATED by haters of truth.

But Barrabas, who was guilty as sin, got set free because of HATE in powerful places! The guilty go free and the innocent are executed! That is what I saw on full display yesterday! And can anyone deny it? If you can, then you have a hate-filled lying tongue too. You are that jungle cat ready to pounce and devour the innocent. I saw pure evil on display yesterday, and total lack of any kind of good manners, or common decency. Is that what you teach your children?

No one is perfect. I’m not saying there are not things needing to be changed and improved. But this HATE ready to kill, steal, and destroy is Satanic! We have crossed a line! Can we get it back? Not if people like I saw yesterday have their way. How can anyone vote for such people? Are you blind? Have you no eyes? Have you no ears? But you are bribed with promise of easy MONEY? Positions of power? You are the evil, the cancer of our culture.

I was pleased to hear that the execution/murder of Bernell Trammell is getting some national attention, and even the Feds may look into it. We are not the HATERS. YOU ARE! And yesterday proved it. You want to see America burn. Your tongues are the fires by which it is being lit! You HATERS prove the Word of God true everyday! And you HATE that! You make me believe God’s Word even more! Yes, you do not want me in your New World. I am not of your world.

Beware people. I don’t see any kind of normal hate here. This will not stop with them winning. It will only stop with revenge. We should fear such a thing. What we need now is not a “Tipping Point”, but a “Turning Point”. Are we too far gone?
