We live in an era when those in power are fixated on covering up the truth to promote their agenda. At the same time, the general public has swallowed the indoctrination that they should not pay any attention to conspiracy theories (legitimate & important conspiracy likelihoods). The general public has heeded this warning not to pay attention to the man behind the curtain.
But God is preparing this generation to defeat the lie-master. This preparation involves a serious investment in wisdom which is not easily obtained. No mathematics instructor would tell their class that for the final exam they would be given the answers to all the problems to memorize instead of being required to work it all out. God is the originator of this approach and has been using it throughout history. His approach leads to the formation of wisdom. If you have followed prophetic ministries you may have noticed that God does not seem to be giving prophetic words about this so-called “vaccine”. God is careful not to reveal in an easy way deep lessons that must be internalized and never forgotten. Many believe this corrupt gene therapy scheme is simply a depopulation death wish from elite people represented by frontline spokesmen like Bill Gates, who is also a proponent of population control. I was introduced to the agenda of population control almost 40 years ago in my freshman biology class designed for engineers – a textbook titled: “The Limits of Growth”
What we can’t see yet is that this agenda sets the world up for a greater evil down the road. I have told my adult children many times that the issue of transhumanism is one they will have to keep track of because I believe the modification of human beings is part of what the Bible calls the Mark of the Beast. We are warned that it will take wisdom to understand this thing.
Revelation 13:16-18 The Passion Translation 16 It also caused everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and bound, to be marked on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 This meant no one could buy or sell unless they had the mark; that is, the name of the beast or its number.
18 This will require wisdom to understand: Let the one with insight interpret the number of the wild beast, for it is humanity’s number—666.
Currently, the agenda is “only” depopulation, but a day is coming when our children’s generation will have to refuse the mark of the Beast. The Pfizer – Moderna injections although a wicked scheme will be wrapped into this generation’s learning process to prepare them to discern a future and greater deception. The deaths this GMO shot will cause will stay in their minds and help fortify them against the future Mark of the Beast that will employ this type of technology.
Search The Corbett Report for news on powerful elite persons who have expressed their opinion that overpopulation is the greatest threat humanity faces. Bill Gates has been a committed speaker on this topic.
I have been getting better at finding people who have seen behind the “curtain”. Many of them are in specialty fields where destiny has placed them in situations where they have seen behind the curtain. They have had access to information that the general public is not permitted to see. Many of them are important investigators who get blasted with ridicule when they speak up. People like trial attorney Michael Van Der Veen and molecular biologist Dr. Judy Mikovits are some of the ones who have seen behind the curtain.
In summary, listen to this important collection of witnesses who in turn represent thousands of other nameless and faceless witnesses such as James the CNA nursing home whistleblower who has pleaded for others to step out.
Alex Jones, his news associates, and Joseph Mercola are among many truth-tellers that are critical to our nation’s future. It is very important to lift these people up before God day and night. I have been asking God to send his angles that are the most upset about what is going on to be their bodyguards. Take a fresh look at both of their sites. Let the realization of what they are trying to wake us up to sink in and bring you to tears and sobs in your prayers before God. I recently gave part of my tithe money to America’s Front Line Doctors and have done the same for Infowars in the past. These truth-telling organizations are essentially part of the body of Christ and deserve our support. Don’t follow old religious rules of thumb that dictate what constitutes a valid part of your 10 percent giving mandate by God, let your conscience be your guide.
Dr. Mikovits explains at the 13-minute mark that people with other inflammatory diseases are most at risk of dying from the experimental gene therapy (deceptively being called a COVID vaccine).
Finally, a CNA nursing home whistleblower says seniors Are dying like flies after COVID Injections! James calls upon other CNAs, nurses, and family members to speak up and go public to tell the world what is going on with these experimental gene therapy injections. You don’t need to watch the whole video to see the heart of this truth-teller. https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1200901313511268352
COVID came with a strong lethal start in Wuhan but lessened its lethality after attacking New York. Thus 2020 became more about avoiding government-sponsored harassment attempting to chain us to loneliness through fabricated conclusions that lockdowns, masks, and social distancing were a new way of life and yet we have failed to marvel that everyone in the world was under nearly identical heavy-handed mandates. The top-down forces of global government gleefully adopted by leftist governors and mayors have been exposed – the existence of an evil cabal is now easy to visualize.
Six decades ago Satan and his evil princes gathered their collection of human accomplices to plan how to set up the end times antichrist kingdom. They came up with many ideas and plans but their discussions kept bringing them back to one major obstacle: The United States of America and their constitutional hold on liberty and justice for all and guarantees for freedom of religion. They knew that they needed to destroy America so they began their assault by getting prayer and references to the Bible removed from public schools. Later most schools would also drop the pledge of allegiance which affirmed our hold on liberty and justice as our primary value under the God of heaven.
But even more diabolically the Devil wanted to use America to destroy the rest of the world. The plan to do this was fairly simple they had always used alcohol and pornography to inflame the senses of people and turn their hearts from God’s love to human passions. But drugs were introduced in the ’60s to enhance the acceptance of free sex to destroy the image of an intimate and faithful relationship with God, a metaphor that sexual union between one woman and one man was meant to convey. But Satan’s devices were not enough. The revival of the late ’60s and ’70s brought many out of these bondages back to God with a passion that could not be stolen by the dazzling light show of sin. What the kingdom of evil needed was a way to get inside of people’s bodies and leave more permanent hooks that the people could not shake off.
So a plan was hatched to begin spraying chemicals at high altitudes under the guise of a climate emergency that required solar blocking efforts. Over several decades the chemicals, including aluminum began to change people’s brains in subtle ways that brought in a rash of quirks and vulnerabilities. At the same time, the elite rulers of the medical establishment altered vaccines to cause a multitude of problems, all the while running an ongoing public affairs campaign that labeled their critics as conspiracy theorists.
Even Hollywood is aware of this evil cabal as evidenced by their many movies about them, yet for some reason, Christians, of all people, came to think of the schemes of the devil as simple boogie man stories that get told for the scar-effect.
One of the major milestones in the evil plan was to elevate homosexual and transgender beliefs and rights to the level of a type of sacred faith. If the evil cabal could transform America into a tribe of rebels that rejected the ways of God they felt that God would surely reject them and the curses that God’s word decreed on all the various types of sin would fall on these people. In fact, devils routinely demand the right to inflict these curses on people who have broken God’s law – marvel at the hypocrisy of that.
So we have found ourselves in a fierce battle for over a year now for people to see the reality of an Orwellian end-times plan using fabricated courses of action to drive us toward the coming Antichrist. During this time the forces of evil smacked down churches with fines for meeting, worship, and prayer. They arrested some and even killed a precious woman named Brandy, a former Merck employee turned anti-vaccine advocate, who threatened to undermine their profits and their goal of creating an operating system1 to hack humans and finally enslave them.
Many things have slipped away from us, but we certainly can’t lose any more precious people like Brandy. Our only hope now is in God’s mercy and His promise of a divine reset that will overpower our enemies. We need an outpouring of God’s love and power that will counter the forces of hate-filled money lust, communism, and one-world government control. We must awaken ourselves and connect to God in a true Spirit connection that allows Him to live, breathe, and move through us. Heaven has instructed us to align our minds and set our hearts on a new work of God on the earth called operation Redeem-All (see my last post) which will spread out across the world.
When Government policy and law-making appear ridiculous there is actually a purpose behind it, but you are not being told what that purpose is. A band of politicians both Democrats and some Republicans have been set in place that are commissioned to transform America from a constitutional republic to a combined Communist and Fascist controlled state. This extreme left/tech giant despot1 club will then try to lead the world into global communism.
This secret alliance is now pushing extreme measures to accomplish their goal, not only seeking vengeance on their rivals but hoping to obliterate them as political competition. Except for God and His promises, free liberty-loving people would feel lost.
It’s time for us to shift from trying to protect the idea of America through influencing people’s politics to becoming conduits for God to touch people’s spirits directly. We will continue to teach this generation the foundations of liberty from the Bible and hopefully grow in our understanding of the U.S. constitution2 but it is time to follow the directions God is giving in this matter. In order for the New World Order Global Communist regime to work it requires people who submit without thinking – that’s what mask mandates are training for.
One of the battlefronts to continue pushing back on are the experimental mRNA injections that this cabal is pushing beyond reason. Our protests against vaccine mandates have been rejected here in California, but we will never surrender. We now lift our faces to heaven and bring our cries before God on these matters. January 21st, the day after the inauguration, Greg Hood, a friend of Dutch Sheets had a dream that Dutch shares in the video below about the operation God is calling His church to. Dutch says that our God and King needs our agreement and us aligning our wills with His to activate His assault. Dutch also says that God has rebirthed the appeal.
The Tree Flag (or the Appeal to Heaven Flag) was one of the flags used during the American Revolution.
The story of the Syrian King whose plans against Israel are affected by the man of God hearing things in the Spirit that disrupted enemy plans is found in 2 Kings 6. God knows in advance what evil spirits and evil people intend to do. He used Elisha to prevented disaster. Bill Johnson discusses this at the 48-minute point where he exhorts us that there is a level of prayerfulness where we can prevent a disaster that is in the making. When we see what’s possible by our view of God. God gave us prophets and apostles for our strategic guidance, not for denominational divisions. Take advantage of the words God gave them for the Church.
“Quoted from Wikipedia –Despotism is a form of government in which a single entity rules with absolute power. Normally, that entity is an individual, as in an autocracy, but societies that limit respect and power to specific groups have also been called despotic.” Wikipedia
2. Understanding the constitution is something many are now seeking to promote – Rick Joyner, Andrew Wommack Ministries, and David Barton. David Barton’s Constitution Alive video series is available on Amazon Prime.
I recently listened to Lana Vawser on a YouTube interview where she talked about God speaking to her about a Divine Reset where God promises to breakthrough for us and where the “hunted become the hunters.” I began to laugh and thoroughly enjoy God’s amazing choice of words and beautiful sense of humor. You can’t miss the connection to the wording “The Great Reset,” that global leaders are wooing over these days that is code-speak for a worldwide financial collapse and introduction to global communism. It is good to be reassured that God is fully aware of all these things and has essentially declared: ‘so you want a great reset do you, I can help with that.’ Yet we down here bear with the gap between heaven and earth in real-time. But consider perhaps how God likes to operate on earth through the story of the resurrection of Jesus.
It has occurred to me that God is dealing with us today as He did 2000 years ago. After his crucifixion, his disciples were bewildered. It appeared to them that the many wonderful promises Jesus made them were lost. So too today many are struggling with the loss of a president we trusted and the delay of God’s spoken promises through His prophets about a Third Great Awakening. Don’t rob God of the opportunity for Him to watch you waiting on Him in faith when it looks like everything has been lost. This is an opportunity to experience what the disciples did for three days then again after Jesus ascended to wait and pray in the upper room waiting for the Holy Spirit.
To me taking up our cross daily and following Jesus represents bearing with people on this earth, just as Jesus carried the cross with people in mind. We bear with our family members over their quirks and the way our quirks require them to bear with us and how those things direct our imperfect conversations. We bear with people in our church over their preferences for ways of doing things and their attachment to things they believe with their mind – knowledge they are very devoted to. Finally, we bear with the world over many more things we disagree with so that they retain the opportunity to receive mercy from God.
Worthy – Jesus Image Worship, John Wilds
God knows the things that we have not paid attention to from His word that have slowly led us to where we are today, but He is gracious and merciful to bring us back from the edge of destruction. God knows how to prepare our hearts and the hearts of the lost for what He wants to do in this divine reset.
We are all fast becoming aware of weaponized policies on freedom of thought that the Tech Giants have spearheaded, but consider another power center in our would – the Medical Establishment and their role in the long war against the liberties and blessings God intended for humanity to have. Dr. Simone Gold marveled in her recent epic lecture on COVID over the monstrous lies that have been told about COVID. Know that where there are monstrous lies there are unseen monsters.
The Medical Establishment has earned a place along with the mainstream media as one of the greatest enemies of our free nation. They were infiltrated by evil years ago in the form of drug companies promoted by John D. Rockefeller, see an article. Mike Adams and his team have produced an amazing online health encyclopedia Natural News.com. Because Mike has dealt with the medical establishment for years, he has been trained to detect conspiracies to steal what should be available to us. He has seen the monstrous lies that Dr. Gold referred to in her lecture. I first learned about the control freak nature of the government/drug company medical establishment from reading the biographical story of a unique person named Royal Rife in the book The Cancer Cure That Worked.
It is my hope and prayer that in the future we will see this sector of government liberated and led by people such as:
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Dr. Judy Mikovits Dr. Simone Gold Dr. Lee Merrit
All of these people and many other professionals worldwide can testify to the monstrous lies that have been told by the medical establishment and pushed by the mainstream media to accomplish an agenda. Listen to the below testimony from someone who is uniquely knowledgeable about how medicine can be weaponized. There are few people in the world who are capable of projecting things based on an awareness of several areas simultaneously to predict the risk that one nation will attack another in an unexpected way. Winston Churchill was such an iconic leader who foresaw the new blitzkrieg style of attack that would sweep Europe. Dr. Merrit has foreseen a new type of attack in our day that is a huge threat and I believe is happening right now. Just as Winston Churchill was the most ridiculed politician of his day, these leaders face incredible blowback and harassment daily, including physical threats – pray for them.
Dr Lee Merrit Interview:
Here is a quick summary of some anti coronavirus supplementation advice from the interview that Dr. Merrit recommends to have on hand. You can also obtain Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) directly from America’s Frontline Doctors.
We live in an era where we have to educate ourselves on important issues that are critical to continued life on our planet. Vaccines are one of those issues. Although the below video is 1 hour and 10 minutes long it discusses critical issues we can’t afford to be ignorant of. The so-called experts, such as Bill Gates who are also firmly convinced that the global population must be reduced make a bad choice to trust regarding vaccines. Of course, there is much about the below interview that is above my level of understanding, but what I do understand is that we have created a mess and even created diseases through vaccines.
Many people feel that shocking revelations must be “conspiracy theories.” The CIA did a good job seeding this idea into the mainstream media after the 1963 assassination of JFK (see this most important video in USA history). The mainstream media pays top salaries to anchors who can convey a sense of truth and confidence to a televised audience. But human personality traits are not the same as spiritual qualities of truth and righteousness. Just as there may be human traits of anxiety and doubt generated over confronting true information, so a well-paid performer can generate a sense of warmth or sincerity over false information. This is simply the propaganda arm of the never-ending battle against God on planet Earth.
As students of the Bible, we know that Jesus listened to Satan Bragg about how he owned all the kingdoms (power centers) of the world, surely we shouldn’t be shocked that power centers such as the Tech Giants, government agencies, and the medical establishment can be controlled by evil people and evil spirits. It is sad that so many Bible-believing Christians adhere to the idea that scary news stories are pretty much all “conspiracy theories” – this is unfortunate. Jesus never contradicted Satan about his ownership of the kingdoms of this world, but simply rebuked him for trying to tempt the Son of God. Have we become so detached from the Bible in our thinking that we’re incapable of visualizing and even theorizing how these centers of power that belong to Satan can operate right out in the open. We simply took them at their word that they were doing something good with little to no research on our part.
There is a good reason why the Bible metaphorically calls us all children and likens us to sheep. We are followers by nature and very easily indoctrinated. The last 60 years in America have been a slow slide, aided by the spiritual curse that abortion has inflicted on us. But things are happening fast now and Christians can no longer remain ignorant on many issues.
Because the mainstream media and the current political party system works from a clearly defined set of marching orders defined by their elite handlers, but never discussed with the public, many policies seem ridiculous to the average citizen or small business person. Remember that secret societies and cults always use secret knowledge as their standard operating procedure for running their organization and developing recruits. Understanding the basic psychology of “group think” or the power of indoctrination is a threat to them. Hitler actually had psychology books burned, of all things. One thing that will help you understand the mainstream media is to have in mind what God reveals in the Bible about the world’s end times state. Then you simply keep an eye out for those issues in the news.
God has warned us that the devil will want to control who can buy and sell as his primary control mechanism. God has told us He requires us to use wisdom in deciphering the cryptic meaning of the symbol called “the Mark Of The Beast.” It sounds like some kind of tattoo or implant and is symbolically labeled with the number 666. Thus, when we see someone being bullied in a financial way, we must take action. To not take action is to yield to the devil’s end time tactic which he is already developing.
In our day the deep state is using the medical establishment and hefty fines from health departments to beat up people in our fragile economy. Being able to go shopping and purchase something we want is a foundational liberty. For some reason the public is willing to accept a $1,000 fine by a health department against a restaurant trying to stay in business, more than they would a police officer issuing the same ticket.
The Bible warns us about false brethren, false prophets, false apostles and false christs (think false political saviors), so we have no lack of warning to be on our guard for people who pretend to be our kind of liberty-loving-people, but are not. They want to establish control over people, because this is what Satan needs to set up for his very short duration end times kingdom. They are not concerned about your health or well being but are agenda driven, with no regard for justice. This is the mark of the mainstream media and their fake fact checkers. Just as Galatians 2:4 states from The Voice translation – “their agenda was clear: they wanted to enslave us.”
The time has come for us to support our fellow citizens who are seeking to act out of truth and liberty by donating some of our purchasing power to them. This will certainly include supporting the independent media, but it will need to include producers and retailers who have fallen under the eye of this end times spirit. I want to highlight MyPillow.com and Mike Lindell author of “What Are the Odds? – from crack addict to CEO”.
Quoted from the Epoch Times:
“Mike Lindell, founder and CEO of MyPillow, told NTD on Tuesday that some groups are forcing retailers to delist his products and that Americans “have to stand up” against cancel culture. Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Wayfair recently notified Lindell that they won’t continue carrying his products. He said the actions came after groups such as Sleeping Giant pushed companies to stop doing business with him. “These are groups that were hired to attack and crush my companies to cancel MyPillow out. And they’re attacking these people, like Bed Bath & Beyond,” Lindell said. “They succumb to the pressure. And you know, that’s their choice. But you know what, this is the time we all have to stand up against this.” Sleeping Giants, a leftist activist group, has ongoing campaigns to pressure companies to drop conservative and right-leaning websites, such as Breitbart News and Fox News. On Twitter, it trumpeted the news that Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s dropped MyPillow, claiming Lindell played a part in motivating the breach of the Capitol by questioning the results of the 2020 election.”
For more inspiration on overcoming obstacles see Mike Lindell’s book: What Are the Odds?
When it Looks Like The End is Near, double check God’s word and the prophetic words being issued by authentic Christian prophets and apostles. They tell us the Beginning is Almost Here. Do you really think God is going to let the Antichrist steal the reins of power before his allotted time has come? Nope. There is a prophesied great revival that must come first. Listen to Paul Cain’s last prophetic word as relayed by Rick Taylor titled: A new day is coming – the prophecy starts at the 12 minute mark, but the entire video is beautiful.
This is a creative prophetic movie review of “The Dark Knight Rises” that connects the movie to what is taking place in our country where a dark night is now rising.
The movie starts out with a speech that tries to cast Harvey Dent in the image of a hero that everyone should look up to. This is such a common thing done in our society by the mainstream media and cultural elite. They build up people like Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci, and people promoting trans-human technology to look like people who are doing something good.
2020 mixed a real virus into international governmental theatrics designed to train people around the world for something, downgrade our mental outlook, our economy, and the church. In the movie, the leaders of Gotham city use a lie to project a culture of honor on an evil two faced person – Harvey Dent. So too the Deep State uses lies to create a false culture of honor for those they want to promote. This mission is carried out by the mainstream media. Promoting people like the Bushes, Clintons, Obama and now Biden/Harris has become a privatized version of Operation Mockingbird.
In the opening Cat Woman scene, she steals Batman’s fingerprints. Doug Addison had mentioned how this was a metaphor of how Satan tries to steal our identity. What this means is Satan wants to steal the identity of people God wants to use for good. Think what a priority trashing Donald Trump’s image has been over the past four years. Satan tries to make each of us think of ourselves in a lesser way, different from the calling that God has for us.
In Bruce Wayne’s ballroom dance with Selena Kyle (Cat Woman) she makes the statement that a storm is coming that is tied to her several references to Communism. Think about her statements of taking from those that have more than enough and giving it to the less fortunate. The phrase “There’s a storm coming,” has been a common sound bite used by both Democrats and Republicans during 2020.
But we discover something even more important about Cat Woman who represents someone willing to do illegal things to promote their view of social justice. More than stealing pearls Cat Woman wants a clean slate (she bargained with the bad guys to get ahold of the “clean-slate program.” Here she represents all of us who have done wrong things who want a clean slate more than anything else. This is at the heart of each of us who comes to God for forgiveness.
Gordon says to officer Blake: you’re a detective now you’re not allowed to believe in coincidence anymore. This is so true in our day and this attitude would help us to realize how the media fabricates a story. We all see financial news headlines on a daily basis that link a news story with the drop or rise of the DOW. It is a ridiculous tactic they get away with to correlate two things that are only minutely related, if at all, in a complex world where we can never be sure what caused something.
A very easy way to analyze the news these days is to see the formation of false flag events by the information the mainstream media and Deep State so desperately want to put out. We have to realize that many things in the press are planted pieces of information designed to indoctrinate people, adjust people’s responses, and win them over to a cause.
In the movie, Bane represents Satan as the accuser of the brethren and demander of judgment against an entire society. But as mentioned there are those who have done wrong and know it who simply want to have their identity as an evildoer erased. Bane gives a speech at the Blackgate Prison which looks more like the front of a capital building, wearing a mask of all things (think mask mandate) – Blackgate Prison is a very prophetic name that is a picture of what the United States has become today.
“Who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice? You have been supplied with a false idol. To stop you tearing down this corrupt city (think system)!”
American culture is pacified with idols and good causes all the time, just to keep people from tearing down the system. As the speech is going on Commissioner Gordon confesses a very prophetic statement, he says: “There’s a point, [in the future] when the structures fail you. And when the rules aren’t weapons anymore, they’re shackles, letting the bad get ahead. One day you may face such a moment of crisis, and in that moment, I hope you have a friend like I did. To plunge their hands into the filth, so that you can keep yours clean!” This is something President Trump has been willing to do for us. He became the prophetic fulfillment of that statement – he has been that friend. Many church-going people have thought it was cool to be a Trump criticizer – God does not agree with this.
Gordon’s notes state that these evil politicians wanted to murder his son – i.e. symbolically destroy our children and their future. I also believe the Dent Act could relate to The Patriot Act – may God bless Edward Snowden.
Many Christians are feeling the frustration of what has worked in the past not working right now. Many churches were birthed in a past gracious move of God that was very warm and encouraging, but right now it’s a different situation in our nation. We’re living in a time when deceptions are becoming a critical issue that can literally destroy everything unless they’re dealt with. God wants to bring the joy and warmth of his presence but it’s going to come through the breaking of deception first before we can experience the warmth of his love.
For the person who has believed a lie, there may be no way to encourage them. You can exhort them to be joyful, but if they believed a LIE they won’t receive what God is willing to do for them, because they’re believing something else at a higher level – the COVID is king syndrome or whatever bondage they have fallen into. We must continually break deceptions in our lives – this will remain a huge need until Jesus returns.
Our greatest need is that our leaders tell us the truth. When a good public leader feels like the time is not right to tell the truth, they are usually dealing with some kind of contorted situation where they are being controlled by outside forces. This is why we must continually pray for our leaders and never give up.
[holds up a picture of Harvey Dent] – (Harvey Dent does look a bit like J.B. – actually more like John Kerry.)
Bane : Harvey Dent, who has been held up to you as the shining example of justice!
John Blake : [to Gordon, at Blake’s apartment] Commissioner, we need to keep you moving until we can get you in front of a camera.
Bane : You have been supplied with a false idol to stop you from tearing down this CORRUPT CITY! Let me tell you the truth about Harvey Dent from the words of Gotham’s police commissioner, James Gordon.
[holds up Gordon’s speech papers and begins to read]
Bane : “The Batman didn’t murder Harvey Dent, he saved my boy then took the blame for Harvey’s appalling crimes so that I could, to my shame, build a lie around this fallen idol. I praised the mad man who tried to murder my own child but I can no longer live with my lie. It is time to trust the people of Gotham with the truth and it is time for me to resign.”
[calls to prisoners]
Bane : And do you accept this man’s resignation? Do you accept the resignation of all these liars? Of all the CORRUPT?
[prisoners roar with approval]
John Blake : Those men locked up for eight years in Blackgate, and denied parole under the Dent Act, based on a lie?
Jim Gordon : Gotham needed a hero…
John Blake : It needs it now more than ever. You betrayed everything you stood for.
Jim Gordon : There’s a point, far out there when the structures fail you, and the rules aren’t weapons anymore, they’re… shackles letting the bad guy get ahead. One day… you may face such a moment of crisis. And in that moment, I hope you have a friend like I did, to plunge their hands into the filth so that you can keep yours clean!
John Blake : [disgusted] Your hands look plenty filthy to me, Commissioner. Bane : We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you… the people. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed! Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This great city… it will endure. Gotham will survive!
As I am sure you realize the church was not given a top-down dictatorial government structure although several church denominations adopted that structure, during the dark ages. The New Testament church was an organization that advised believers and any who would listen. Pastors admonish and exhort people according to the written and spoken word of God. Paul especially gave us an example to follow as an apostle and pastor by both encouraging people and correcting dangerous situations. He also supported the believers searching the scriptures themselves to verify what he preached.
Acts 17:11 New International Version
“Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”
Pastors and leaders cannot fall into the error of thinking they are the ultimate authority in their spiritual house for understanding the scriptures or for understanding the times in which we live. But like airline pilots, they are trusted to make decisions on what direction to go and determine many safety of flight issues.
Staying with this aviation metaphor and looking at a typical military chain of command, an Apostle is like the air-wing Admiral or General, the air-wing is over a group of squadrons in the Navy. They are equipped with strategic information that will solve problems and improve the mission. Many apostles do this and are also like architects you would hire to design a building for a specific purpose. God has been telling us through the prophets and apostles that He is bringing new wineskins for His gospel to be contained in. This is an invitation to creative type people.
I am notashamed, even if I’ve come across as one who has overstated the authority given to us by the Lord. For it is the authority to help build you up, not tear you down.
The prophet is like an intelligence officer, or perhaps a forward observer or even an air traffic controller – seeing things happening in the atmosphere and communicating that to the pilots.
People need in-person church services more than ever and the mission of making disciples should be the focus of the hour. The spiritual fishing net has to be strengthened now before it is bursting at the seams with an influx of new believers. It is essential that pastors don’t make a diet out of mainstream media in this era we live in as they will be influenced by lies and deception and even pass those things on to their people. Blindly following the suggestions of people who hate God is obviously dangerous. We must develop an understanding of the times that we live in.
Consider 1 Chronicles 12:1 NKJV:
“Now these were the men who came to David at Ziklag while he was still a fugitive from Saul the son of Kish; and they were among the mighty men, helpers in the war, armed with bows, using both the right hand and the left…”
The nation of Israel was very important and is carefully followed in the Bible. So is the United States of America in our era. By God’s grace, we hold a pivotal role in the world that promotes liberty and faith in God. It would be wrong for us to think that the leadership of our nation is arbitrary and irrelevant to us as Christians. Consider verse 18: “Then the Spirit came upon Amasai, chief of the captains, and he said:” “We are yours, O David; We are on your side, O son of Jesse! Peace, peace to you, And peace to your helpers! For your God helps you.”
This has a very metaphorical sound that speaks to me of supporting God-ordained leaders in our day at every level of government. The chapter continues and makes this important statement:
31 “of the half-tribe of Manasseh eighteen thousand, who were designated by name to come and make David king; 32 of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their command; 33 of Zebulun there were fifty thousand who went out to battle, expert in war with all weapons of war, stouthearted men who could keep ranks;“
None of us can view our situations or responsibilities toward God as fatalistic but as opportunistic – hopefully, we don’t miss what He truly wants us to do. But thank God that He does things for us that are too difficult if not impossible for us to do. Consider what Daniel reveals:
Daniel 2:20-22 NKJV:
20 Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. 21 And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. 22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.
Pastors have been in a difficult situation this past year knowing they can’t just tell people to go home and close the doors to the church, many have used creative ways and creative ideas to touch people more personally. Pastors cannot hide behind the idea that they are submitting to the government and that’s all the Bible requires of them. That line of reasoning is not going to be justified before God.
Keep turning your back on every sin, and make “peace” your life motto. Practice being at peace with everyone.
The Lord sees all we do; he watches over his friends day and night. His godly ones receive the answers they seek whenever they cry out to him.
But the Lord has made up his mind to oppose evildoers and to wipe out even the memory of them from the face of the earth.
Yet when holy lovers of God cry out to him with all their hearts, the Lord will hear them and come to rescue them from all their troubles.
The situation with the election fraud is not something to fatalistically swallow and hope for the best. Prayer is our survival. The problem is that if you ignore what God is showing you in His word and willingly line yourself up with Satan’s end-time agenda you will be affected by that decision. I admire Calvary Chapel for pursuing keeping their churches open throughout 2020 and of course, some of them have been fined large amounts of money. It is simply one of many decisions churches and pastors must make along that difficult path between the world and the Great Commission.
Pastors that don’t listen to the top apostles and prophets of the body of Christ and simply do what seems best to them will eventually make mistakes that could have been avoided. The church is neither a dictatorship nor a democracy. It is not a corporation with a board of directors, but an association of people with various gifts and callings under the leadership of God’s Spirit. A pastor is someone who brings spiritual food to this group. In God’s kingdom the highest leadership positions, the apostles and prophets, don’t have direct line authority over independent churches. Their ministry relies on pastors choosing to embrace their important advisory information.
Pastors and teachers have to choose to integrate that top leadership into the direction of their Church. Much of the apostolic leadership is subject-oriented. Lou Engle is an apostle for the unborn. I call Lana Vawser a prophetess commissioned to help guide the church into revival.
Many of our strategies get corrupted over time. Warmth can become lukewarm water if we constrain our preaching to remain in a tight circle of subjects and styles. We have to stay open to hearing from the whole body of Christ. People like John Bevere sometimes get rejected by churches with tight standards for their gospel message style when he should be considered. Seeker friendly can turn into easy salvation, no discipleship, and never talking about the tough issues touching the moral laws of our land.
Here is a quote from Mario Murillo’s blog: ——————————————————-
Steve Hill saw a vision of a coming storm that had the potential to destroy millions of Christians because of false teachings that are rampant throughout the church. “The Lord began to speak. I trembled. The fresh, new snow represented the false teaching that is steadily falling on the ears of the body of Christ. It has been, and is, a heavy snowfall. The skiers represented believers and non-believers, trusting the resort for a safe and memorable experience. As Christians, we have been warned to be sober and vigilant (1 Peter 5:8).
