Enjoy this Bible story – Judges 7:1-7 (The VOICE translation).
So then Jerubbaal (Gideon) and all the troops with him rose early, and they camped beside the spring of Harod. The camp of the Midianites was to their north, in the valley below the hill of Moreh.
Eternal One (to Gideon): You have too many warriors for Me to allow you to defeat the Midianites. As it is now, the people of Israel would just deny Me the credit and claim they had won the victory on their own. So go out and tell your army, “Any of you who are afraid and trembling are free to leave Mount Gilead.”
After this announcement, 22,000 left, so Gideon reduced his army to 10,000.
Eternal One: You still have too many warriors. Take them down to the water, and I will sift them for you. When I say, “This one will fight for you,” he will go with you; but when I say, “This one will not fight for you,” then he will not go.
So Gideon led his army down to the water.
Eternal One: All of those who lap water the way a dog drinks, put them to one side. All of those who go down on their knees to drink, put them on the other side.
Three hundred of the men lapped up water by raising a hand to their mouths, and all the rest went down on their knees to drink.
Eternal One: I will use these 300 who lapped from their hands to deliver Israel and to give the Midianites into your hand. Send all the rest home.
The 300 who kept their eyes on a swivel watching their surroundings are also the ones God is looking for today. Gideon’s dwindling army is a picture of our dwindling odds of being able to turn our nation’s situation around on our own, starting with the stollen election of Donald Trump. But because our human nature would like to win while we are on a roll God had to strip us of immediate victory, lest we also would deny Him the credit and claim we had won the victory on our own. I have had the feeling over the last year that the revival God has promised us would not simply be handed to us when times were generally decent. That it would not come until our problems were much greater and we were crying out for His miraculous help.
Things we thought would never happen, just have:
- Walmart to offer immunity passport to customers who take COVID vaccine jab
Quoted from the above link: “Watchdog groups have warned that vaccine immunity passports will become tools for government-backed ‘abuse, discrimination, and oppression.” Pray for Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu has been my all-time favorite leader of another country, but what I see now is breaking my heart. We must pray for revival in Israel – this is direct from God for His intercessors to take up.
When you see things that seem ridiculous with no explanation realize that you simply have not been told everything about the government policy. If you had been told everything the real purpose would become evident. The people who are attempting to hijack our society and the free societies of the world are not stupid, they are very smart. The problem is that they themselves have been hijacked by evil. If Walmart or government policy was truly wanting to help us with immunity passports they would also give people who have recovered from COVID a passport. Recovery builds your immune system even better than a vaccine – according to Merck. In Merck’s discontinuation announcement, they basically said that if you catch COVID and recover you will get better immune protection than the two vaccine candidates they were developing. I quote them: “In these studies, both V590 and V591 were generally well-tolerated, but the immune responses were inferior to those seen following natural infection …” Common sense would tell you that people who have recovered from COVID should be greatly sought out for employment. One final point. If the government was all about protecting its citizens it would be talking openly about the fact that the suicide rate for young people dramatically increased after the lockdowns and is now far more deadly to that age group than COVID.
Because of such deceptions, watchdog groups have taken on the important Biblical role of being “salt” and “light” to our society. Many churches refuse to fulfill this purpose. Thus Christian watchdog organizations are now also deserving of our tithes and offerings. Organizations such as:
Whom we purchase from is now also partly a ministry support decision. This especially includes those supplying truthful news services and suppressed health food alternatives, but also other products where retailers stand up to defend our liberties instead of becoming part of the deep state control and propaganda system.
A closing note from Gary D. Barnett of SURVIVAL BLOG:
We are staring at the gates of hell, and most still have their heads in the sand. Watching and waiting, and expecting the best without lifting a finger to change the course we are on is the epitome of failure. Avoidance, apathy, indifference; these are all signs of hiding from the truth, and all these roads lead only to a life of servitude. The good in life comes from overcoming adversity, despair, and oppression, and this requires strength, courage, and tenacity. Today we face the most challenging time in history, and only by standing together against our enemy the state, do we have a chance to regain that treasure in life called freedom.
