Liberal World Order, Elites Plan to Confiscate Farms, What we can do – Jesus is Lord of all!

a war is taking place against farmers and ranchers, especially those who are independent or those who are not part of the system. ‘They want to remove small farmers, even medium farmers, from their land, and they want to bring it all under the control of these… fascistic public-private partnerships.'” https://link.theepochtimes.com/mkt_app/alex-newman-explains-un-agenda-2030-behind-farming-restrictions_4608476.html

““They set up kings, but not by Me; They made princes, but I did not acknowledge them. From their silver and gold They made idols for themselves— That they might be cut off.” Hosea 8:4 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/hos.8.4.NKJV

Confess and repent of sin. Worship the one true God. Declare His glory among the nations. Take dominion and make disciples of all nations!

“Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.” Hosea 10:12 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/hos.10.12.NKJV

# Tyranny, crime, and other evils
“The kings of the earth set themselves… against the Lord and against his Anointed… He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.” Psalm 2:1-4 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.2.1-4.ESV

If people want to prevent food supply from being used as a tool to control them, they need to find alternative sources of food locally, Newman said. “You need to have a relationship with the local farmers in your community, get to the local farmers market, deal with the local farmersif you have agricultural land, do not sell out to these people. They’re trying to bribe the farmers to leave their land.

What do we do? Pray! -and- We must, by all means, support local farmers and livestock producers!

Confess and repent of sin. Worship the one true God. Declare His glory among the nations. Take dominion and make disciples of all nations!

Chose to buy meat and produce from local producers.

Buy local! It may cost a little more than Walmart or Amazon, but consider:
* it is an investment in your neighbor, showing your love toward them
* it is an investment in your liberty and the liberty of your children and their children!
* It is an investment in your health. Knowing where your food comes from and how it is produced

Share local resources with your church fellowship so whole local fellowships support and pray for local food producers. Perhaps start local food banks and soup kitchens.

Even more so if they are brothers in the faith. If they are in a local church fellowship, then rejoice in paying them a true and fair price that they may prosper and be a blessing to the community.

“You should go into every business relationship with a brother looking to give something additional, rather than to get something additional. Don’t expect discounts because you are a brother. Try, when possible, to give something additional because he’s a brother… This spirit of grace and generosity does not take Mammon out of your hands, but it most certainly takes you out of Mammon’s hands.” Gashmu Saith It: How to build Christian communities that save the world, by Douglas Wilson https://canonpress.com/products/gashmu-saith-it/

“The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.” Proverbs 11:25 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/pro.11.25.NKJV

Get to know the local owners and operators of farms and livestock personally.

Pray for their well being and success, and let them know you are praying for them.

Start a garden.

Every home have a garden. Like the “victory gardens” of old. Start a farm or livestock herd if you can. Gardener, “those professionals who work the soil but do not as a general rule rely on heavy machinery.”, is # 5 of the top 20 durable trades. https://a.co/ek9jv5Q

“Victory gardens were vegetable gardens planted during the world wars in order to ensure an adequate food supply for civilians and troops. Government agencies, private foundations, businesses, schools, and seed companies all worked together to provide land, instruction, and seeds for individuals and communities to grow food.” https://gardens.si.edu/gardens/victory-garden/

“Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.” Genesis 2:15 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/gen.2.15.NKJV

“Build houses and dwell in them; plant gardens and eat their fruit. Take wives and beget sons and daughters.. And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.” Jeremiah 29:5-7 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/jer.29.5-7.NKJV

Inform your civil magistrate, who is under the authority of Jesus (Romans 13:1,4).

Urge civil magistrates (county board, mayor, governor) to support and protect local agriculture, farms, and livestock producers. Ask your local, state, and national representatives to protect them! As God’s minister they must be informed by the Church of God’s truth and grace. And what is the Church but we the living stones!

If you love your neighbor and do not want to see them fall victim to these wicked schemes of total global control, population control, and mass starvation, then you must be be involved!

I don’t think anyone denies that the climate is changing. The climate does change. It may even change wildly over hundreds and thousands of years like the magnetic poles. I do deny the elites of globalism like the UN and WEF that promise to “fix” the climate if we allow them to take away our personal liberty and property. That is a sin.

“For he is God’s minister to you for good… for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.” Romans 13:4 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/rom.13.4.NKJV

Provide for your family, church, and community.

Water, food, shelter, security!

“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” I Timothy 5:8 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/1ti.5.8.NKJV

Love your neighbor and love one another.

Biden’s Environmental Extremism
https://www.cwfpac.com/thursday-july-21-2022-real-threat-pro-abortion-left-bidens-environmental-extremism

Biden’s policies are deliberately driving up energy prices… What Americans need to understand is that this administration and their left-wing allies are at war with Middle Americaall in on the green agenda’…  What Can Germany Teach Us? … the green movement is on steroids in Germany… shutdown Germany’s coal plantsshut down Germany’s nuclear plants…  And the German government, which followed the “green agenda,” has few options… Germany is now preparing to ration natural gas by 15%.”

Why Communist China Is Smiling 
https://www.cwfpac.com/thursday-july-21-2022-real-threat-pro-abortion-left-bidens-environmental-extremism

“as Joe Biden demands we go green, communist China has a lock on everything necessary to “go green.”  They have a lock on solar panels.  They have a lock on battery manufacturing.  They have a lock on rare earth minerals.  In fact, communist China has a lock on rare earth minerals thanks in part because Hunter Biden helped Beijing land big deals in Africa.  A lot of really smart, non-ideological people who study geopolitics and historical trends are warning that the wars in the future will be fought over control of natural resources.  Countries will go to war over a desperate need for those resources. As we enter an era of natural resource wars, Joe Biden is destroying our advantage in natural resources and is making us dependent on communist China.”

“U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), and John Hoeven (R-N.D.) wrote July 14 to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), expressing concern over ‘Chinese food manufacturer Fufeng Group’s recent purchase of roughly 370 acres of land near Grand Forks, North Dakota.’ … The purchase was strategically located ‘approximately 12 miles from Grand Forks Air Force Base,’ argued the senators, raising concerns ‘that Fufeng operations could provide cover for PRC surveillance or interference with the missions located at that installation, given Fufeng Group’s reported ties to the Chinese Communist Party.’ … ‘Why would we let them come to our own country and buy up precious farmland that we need to feed our folks, [and to] use as exports to feed our allies?’ Perkins asked Cramer. Cramer responded, ‘We shouldn’t.'”


Dutch Farmers Are Rebelling Against ‘Great Reset,’

“We are in the village of Erbeek in the Netherlands. This is the site of one of several dozen farmers’ protests that have sprung up across the entire country. These are real grassroots protests. They’re not really coordinated and there’s no top-down structure, but they’re just springing up everywhere. They are being initiated by farmers who are seeing new government regulations that are being proposed in the parliament as something of a death sentence for their farms: between 30 percent to 50 percent of farms might actually close down if these regulations go into effect.”

Dutch farmers are fighting the globalist “Great Reset” agenda through their protests against aggressive new government climate policies… ‘the people governing this country are following the script written by the EU, to realize what they call a Great Reset. They want to make us more dependent on international supply chains. They want to weaken Dutch sovereignty and autonomy.’”

Agenda 2030 – Farming Restrictions – Elite Global Overlords

Alex Newman Explains UN Agenda 2030 Behind Farming RestrictionsREAD THIS FULL ARTICLE! https://link.theepochtimes.com/mkt_app/alex-newman-explains-un-agenda-2030-behind-farming-restrictions_4608476.html

“The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for sustainable development informs government policies to restrict farming and transform the food systems in different parts of the world, said Alex Newman, an award-winning international journalist who has covered this issue for over a decade… The 2030 Agenda “covers every element of human life, every element of the economy,” including global wealth redistribution not only within the nations but also among the nations, Newman commented. The Agenda “specifically says that we need to change the way that we consume and produce goods,” he added… Newman said that, in his view, the U.N. ultimately wants to get rid of private land ownership. “We see this all over the world. This is not just happening in the Netherlands… He thinks that a war is taking place against farmers and ranchers, especially those who are independent or those who are not part of the system. “They want to remove small farmers, even medium farmers, from their land, and they want to bring it all under the control of these—I think there’s no other term to describe it—fascistic public-private partnerships.” Newman noted some examples to illustrate his opinion: The Chinese regime forces peasants to move to megacities, farmers are killed in South Africa, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the United States proposed a new rule that could bankrupt small and medium farmers.

If people want to prevent food supply from being used as a tool to control them, they need to find alternative sources of food locally, Newman said. “You need to have a relationship with the local farmers in your community, get to the local farmers market, deal with the local farmers, come up with some agreement,” such as getting delivery of fresh, seasonal produce from the local farms for 100 bucks a week, he said… “If you have agricultural land, do not sell out to these people. They’re trying to bribe the farmers to leave their land.””

They chose new gods; Then there was war in the gates; Not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel.” Judges 5:8 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/jdg.5.8.NKJV

When the men of a nation turn away from God they also tend to turn away from their responsibility to defend their families, communities, and nation! It’s a “moral vanity” as Jack Carr has labeled it (https://a.co/bgOdVwy). “Not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel.”

Yes, Elisjsha Dicken Is a Good Samaritan — and He Deserves a Medal https://stream.org/yes-elisjsha-dicken-is-a-good-samaritan-and-he-deserves-a-medal/ 

“Elisjsha Dicken did not escalate anything; in fact, he dramatically and decisively de-escalated it in the only possible way, given the circumstances… [reject] radically pacifist or “namby-pamby” view of Jesus — the view that he would never endorse an act of violence for any purpose, even if it’s necessary to save lives. It implies that Elisjsha Dicken should have run for cover and allowed the Greenwood shooter to kill another dozen or two people. That’s wrong, if not downright blasphemous… When Elisjsha Dicken pulled out his gun to stop a shooting spree, he had every reason to believe he might attract the shooter’s aim and be killed himself. Fortunately, he was not, and he is among the living whose lives he saved. If Elisjsha Dicken had been killed, the rest of us could at least take comfort in the words of Jesus as quoted in John 15:13. ‘Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.’ Elisjsha Dicken is not only a Good Samaritan. He’s a very good one. Give him a medal.

Uvalde Update: Over one hour to stop the mass shooter!

There must be, at least, a discussion about the corrupt incompetence of the response to the Uvalde school shooting! Really, an investigation into how a police force can fail so badly. It wouldn’t hurt to question the mental stability of school officials that think a no-guns sticker has the force, power, or magic to stop murderers from entering!

However, let’s not disregard two spiritual components:

First, As noted above, when men turn away from God, they tend to turn away from the duty to protect. It’s a “moral vanity” as Jack Carr has labeled it (https://a.co/bgOdVwy). Judges 5:8 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/jdg.5.8.NKJV

Second, Hired hands have no skin in the game. In other words, depending on a stranger to protect your loved ones is not a good idea. You are the good shepherd of your flock. Protect them. John 10:13-14 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/jhn.10.13-14.NKJV

Christian men and the primal task to protect spouses and children

Christian men, you can NOT outsource your duty to protect your family. Period.

You can NOT use the “I’ll call A MAN (911) to rescue us if in trouble” excuse. BE THE MAN!

You are the man God has given the duty to. 

Protect your children. Mind, body, and soul. Period. 

No more excuses. Protect them. 

If your children’s school does not have security in place, REMOVE THEM IMMEDIATELY and PROTECT THEM! Obviously the school administration is mentally ill if they think a NO GUNS sticker will magically protect your children.

KEEP: TO PROTECT AS A SWORD-BEARER

In “Genesis 2:15, we learn how man is to fulfill his calling: ‘The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.’ … Work. To work is to labor to make things grow… Keep. To keep is to protect and to sustain progress already achieved… KEEP: TO PROTECT AS A SWORD-BEARER  shamar, which is translated by such English terms as “watch,” “guard,” “protect,” “take under custody,” or “exercise care” … His calling to Christian men is similar: we are to watch over and keep safe all that the Lord has put under our care… our basic mandate as Christian men is to cultivate, build, and grow (both things and people), but also to stand guard so that people and things are kept safe-so that the fruit of past cultivating and nurturing is preserved… In our families, our presence is to make our wives and children feel secure and at ease. At church, we are to stand for truth and godliness against the encroachment of worldliness and error. In society, we are to take our places as men who stand up against evil and who defend the nation from threat of danger.” The Masculine Mandate: God’s Calling to Men by Richard D. Phillips https://a.co/hPkBUjb

“Many don’t feel a responsibility to be prepared to protect their spouses and children when that primal task can be outsourced; just call 911. A moral vanity has trumped the obligation to protect their lives and the lives of those they love; that is the job of the police in a civilized society, after all… Self-reliant men, capable of extreme violence in defense of their lives, their families, and of freedom makes some people nervous.” — In the Blood: A Thriller (Terminal List Book 5) by Jack Carr (emphasis added) https://a.co/bgOdVwy

And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.”” Nehemiah 4:13-14 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/neh.4.13-14.NKJV

“The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and doesn’t own the sheep, leaves them and runs away when he sees a wolf coming. The wolf then snatches and scatters them. This happens because he is a hired man and doesn’t care about the sheep.” John 10:12-13 HCSB

Prayer, public witness of the church, and proclaiming God’s truth and grace.

Why are we here (in this sin fallen world)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To make disciples of all nations.
Matthew 28:18-20

Why are we here (on the sidewalk outside an abortion clinic)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To love the captive soul and to preach the good news!
Romans 10:14-15

What message are we sharing and bearing witness to? 
There is a God that created the heavens and the earth.
We humans are created in His image.
We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, and justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation.
But God is merciful and loving. 
Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place.
Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.
We need only confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and repent and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!

From mindsets, skillsets, and financial resources, it can be daunting to even consider educating your kids within the walls of your home.”

“Today, my guest Matt Beaudreau, and I talk about how to make it a reality. We cover the resources you need to homeschool your children, alternative paths outside of government and home-based education, common myths to pulling your kids from school, the difference between being educated and being schooled, the game of college, school-choice for parents, and so much more.”

“SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:
* Difference between being “educated” and being “schooled”
* Destroying the homeschool “socialization” myth
* Lack of nuance in the public school system
* Most public school teachers have good intentions
* How do you get out of the public school system?
* Are we qualified to teach our own kids?
* The origins of compulsory schooling
* Exploring the alternatives to public scoring”


DOJ’s Muted Response to Pro-Abortion Intimidation, Violence Proves Costly https://washingtonstand.com/commentary/dojs-muted-response-to-proabortion-intimidation-violence-proves-costly

“Such protests are illegal — or likely would be found so if anyone bothered to prosecute them — as even The Washington Post admits. According to Title 18, Chapter 73, § 1507… But federal officers charged with enforcing this law have thus far failed to do so. Nor has any other jurisdiction arrested these protestors… Instead, Congress has been forced to consider a measure to expand law enforcement protection for immediate family members of Supreme Court justices… On Friday, President Biden signed it into law. By spending extra on security instead of enforcing the law, the federal government has chosen to effectively subsidize these illegal protests.

Study: Only 37% of American Pastors Have a Biblical Worldview https://answersingenesis.org/culture/study-only-thirty-seven-percent-american-pastors-have-biblical-worldview/

“What is the dominant religion of pastors filling pulpits of “Christian” churches across the US? A new study from the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University found that a staggering 62% of pastors don’t have a biblical worldview. Instead, they have a worldview of syncretism—in other words, a little bit of this and a little bit of that, mixed together with Christianity.”

Thank you, Clarence Thomas! …  for today’s Supreme Court decision upholding our Second Amendment rights. https://www.cwfpac.com/thursday-june-23-2022-thank-you-clarence-joe-bidens-america 

“The justices ruled 6-to-3 that New York’s strict regulation of concealed carry permits was unconstitutionally broad and illegally limited the Second Amendment right of self-defense to the confines of one’s home… In his opinion for the court’s majority, Justice Thomas declared:

The constitutional right to bear arms in public for self-defense is not ‘a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules . . .  The exercise of other constitutional rights does not require individuals to demonstrate to government officers some special need. . .  Nothing in the Second Amendment’s text draws a home/public distinction with respect to the right to keep and bear arms.””

Colion Noir: With Fear Of Chinese Invasion, Taiwan Citizens Learn How To Use Guns, This Is The Militia https://youtu.be/5YGtDdMApzc 

The Taiwanese don’t have a second amendment, so when there is a threat from a foreign government, the people have to get their guns from their Government. The problem is, what happens when the threat is their Government? Do you think a tyrannical Taiwanese government will hand out guns to the people so they can use those guns to fight back against the same tyrannical Taiwanese Government? … That’s why the the second Amendment using modern english essentially says, As a result of needing a well regulated (i.e. well function and capable) Militia, which is the people (i.e. You) to protect this country, at no time will the peoples ability to own arms be infringed by the Government. And that’s what the people of Taiwan are learning right now, just like the people of Ukraine. The people are the Militia. Yet another modern-day example of why we have the Second Amendment and a perfect example of who the Militia is!”

Military Wokeness Makes It ‘Difficult’ for Young People ‘to Serve under This President’: Congressman https://washingtonstand.com/news/military-wokeness-makes-it-difficult-for-young-people-to-serve-under-this-president-congressman-

“Patriotic young people considering military service would find it “very difficult” to serve under a president as rabidly left-wing as Joe Biden, a Republican member of Congress said on Tuesday… A controversial, four-minute-long video, released during Pride Month, drew instant criticism for its melding of extreme transgender ideology and childlike production values. “Hi, my name is Jony, and I use he/him pronouns!” begins a male named Jony Rozon. He and Conchy Vasquez coach enlisted personnel to always “include our pronouns in our emails” and “introduce ourselves using our pronouns.”… The taxpayer-funded production also criticizes people who believe it is impossible to change one’s sex and believe forcing them to do so is “infringing on my rights.” Abandoning the biblical view of gender is “mostly and ultimately about respect,” says Vasquez — although she betrays no respect for the opposing viewpoint.”

THE GOOD NEWS

There is a God that created the heavens and the earth. We humans are created in His image.

We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, our Creator. Our rebellion has brought “all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice… envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness” to the world. Romans 1:29-31 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.1.29-31.ESV

Therefore we justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation, “as it is written: ‘None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.’” Romans 3:10-12 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.3.10-12.ESV

But good news! God is merciful and loving. Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place. Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation. 

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-8 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/1co.15.3-8.ESV

We need only believe it, confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after! “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”” Romans 10:9-11 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.10.9-11.ESV

There is hope. Believe in Jesus! ““For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.3.16.ESV 

It doesn’t matter who you’ve been or what you’ve done, God stands with arms wide open, ready to forgive you. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/1jn.1.9.ESV

“When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he assembled his 318 trained men, born in his household, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.” Genesis‬ ‭14:14‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Why life without covenant = clown world 
https://notes.itsgoodtobeaman.com/why-life-without-covenant-clown-world/

“Our rebellion against covenant is catastrophic, because covenants are foundational in every realm of society. Though we tend to notice only those which are explicitly cut between two parties, covenants are actually everywhere—they are just mostly natural or implicit… Having disposed of covenant heads—fathers—we have replaced them with celebrities and comedians—clowns—which is why we are now living in Clown World… But a supernatural work is required to knit together an entire society that has rebelled against nature itself. It ultimately requires that our various covenant heads—fathers, pastors, leaders, rulers—be joined themselves to a greater Head: the Lord Jesus.”

Since a supernatural work is required, there are really only three things we can do: [1]  Pray for God to work. [2]  Preach the gospel of the kingdom to every living being, so that when he works, all can repent and turn and be joined together and healed in his Head. [3]  Participate in covenant life ourselves, working out our salvation in fear and trembling, abiding in our Head by practicing the holiness without which no one will see God (John 15:5–10; Heb 12:14).”

““I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing… If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.” John 15:5, 7-8 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/jhn.15.5-8.NKJV

Church of Cowards? America’s founders did not avoid “being political.” “… as Sir Thomas Moore pointed out, “Silence gives consent”—if one doesn’t say anything about the horrific trends of the day, he is silently giving approval.”

[6] Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
[7] To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,
[8] To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,
[9] To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the LORD!

“I will wager that every high-ranking Chinese Naval Officer along with the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party is sane. They may imprison millions, they may persecute religious minorities, they may harvest organs from political dissidents, but they are solidly sane. I will surmise that not a single one of them thinks that a man can get pregnant, or that a man can become a woman just by thinking about it…Meanwhile back in the real world of ordinary people, here are some other thoughts he could have mentioned. Food prices were 9.4% higher in April 2022 than in April 2021—the largest annual increase in 41 years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics grocery prices were up 10.8% for the year. The AAA reports that gas prices are setting all time highs across the nation just in time for the summer driving season. Because of the lack of fertilizer and increased diesel prices, farmers are telling us food prices are going to double by October. Finally, folks, does anybody have an answer or does anybody even care that we are on an intentional track to national poverty? The President says we are in a transition to a new way of life that will be better. But Mr. President the people have no bread. During the transition, let them eat cake.”

The worms which are native to East Asia, are a glossy gray or brown with a white band, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture says they thrash around and can leap one foot into the air… These slimy pests also devour nutrients from the soil, leaving it unable to sustain trees or plants and according to some scientists could slowly destroy entire forestsIf you spot one of these creatures, you’re urged to take a photo and submit it to your local University of Illinois Extension office.

What many Christians misunderstand about Bitcoin https://www.christianpost.com/news/what-many-christians-misunderstand-about-bitcoin.html

“There are a lot of misconceptions about Bitcoin among Christians and unfortunately, they continue to persist. In this article, I hope to dispel a lot of the misconceptions which disproportionately affect older people, who have some trouble with the mental models around Bitcoin… Bitcoin is digital, decentralized, and scarce all at the same time. This is achieved through some very clever uses of cryptography and computer science structures. The result has been one of the largest disruptions of finance that we’ve ever seen… Alternative cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum, Ripple and Solana, have not achieved decentralization and are really of the second category of digital things, scarce, but centralized… the computational power required to break the cryptography in Bitcoin would require far more energy than exists in the Milky Way and far more time than the age of the universe. That kind of security is unavailable in the physical world… Any single copy of the Bitcoin data is enough to continue operation, and there are literally tens of thousands of such copies… Bitcoin, being decentralized, can essentially survive any huge energy grid and internet infrastructure disruptions and more importantly, everyone on the network is incentivized to keep those connections… It doesn’t have a central bank so the volatility is entirely market-driven. This is why there’s so much volatility over the short-term. However, this is also a very good thing because over the long term, the fixed supply and increasing demand mean that price is the only release valve. Bitcoin has done fantastically against the dollar over the last 10 years precisely because of this dynamic… Bitcoin breaks our mental models because we’re so used to thinking about digital things in a particular way. The fact that it’s digital, decentralized and scarce is a real innovation, the likes of which we haven’t seen before. The result has been that we’re able to store value without interference from the state, which in a world of financial censorship, is quite valuable.”

“The big picture: Law enforcement agencies are investigating social-media threats to burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their clerks, as well as attacks targeting places of worship and abortion clinics… The unclassified May 13 memo by DHS’ intelligence arm says threats that followed the leak of a draft opinion — targeting Supreme Court Justices, lawmakers and other public officials, as well as clergy and health care providers — ‘are likely to persist and may increase leading up to and following the issuing of the Court’s official ruling.’… The memo, along with communications between government and the private sector, show how multiple agencies are mobilizing to try to get ahead of ahead of civil unrest.”

“a new report reveals the federal government snooped on American citizens using their cell phones during the COVID pandemic, and it’s nothing to laugh about. The secular news outlet VICE reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) bought access to location data harvested from tens of millions of phones in the United States to perform analysis of compliance with curfews, track patterns of people visiting K-12 schools, and specifically monitor the effectiveness of policy in the Navajo Nation, according to CDC documents dated 2021 and obtained by VICE’s Motherboard… Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a reason, the CDC paid SafeGraph, a private firm, for access to the dataThe CDC used the data to monitor COVID curfews, neighbor-to-neighbor visits, visits to churches, other places of worship, schools, and pharmacies for “vaccine monitoring.” … VICE’s Motherboard received the documents through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the CDC. ‘We can track you wherever you go and by doing that, we can figure out what it is you’re doing because we get enough data, we can figure out when you do these certain actions, this is what you’re involved in,’ he said.”

Prayer, public witness of the church, and proclaiming God’s truth and grace.

Why are we here (in this sin fallen world)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To make disciples of all nations.
Matthew 28:18-20

Why are we here (on the sidewalk outside an abortion clinic)? 
To bear witness to God and His truth and grace. 
To love the captive soul and to preach the good news!
Romans 10:14-15

What message are we sharing and bearing witness to? 
There is a God that created the heavens and the earth.
We humans are created in His image.
We are sinners, we have rebelled against Him, and justly deserve our due punishment of death and damnation.
But God is merciful and loving. 
Jesus is God the only begotten Son and He took our punishment upon Himself in our place.
Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death and securing the hope of our salvation.
We need only confess our sins, proclaim Jesus is lord and savior, and repent and we will be forgiven our sins and have life ever after!

“Your home is your sanctuary; it’s the one place where you go to get rest, peace, and security. I have zero tolerance for anyone who disrupts that by invading my home. It should be understood that if you invade someone’s home, you will likely be shot. If there are no severe consequences for such extreme actions, it just encourages criminals to do more. Invading homes should be seen as risky business to criminals, and the way you do that is by doing exactly what this sheriff said… A government that genuinely cares about the safety of its people will empower them, but a government that cares about control will make its people dependent on its power.”

# Make Disciples of all Nations
“‘Go therefore and make disciples of all nations’” Matthew 28:18-20 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.28.18-20.ESV

Eschatology has implications https://notes.itsgoodtobeaman.com/eschatology-has-implications/

“… most Christians are content to consume a slightly cleaner version of the culture being produced by the liberals. This is why we are losing the “culture war.” We consume, but we don’t produce… Theology has consequences for practice. But practice also has consequences for theology. When a nation of professed Christians are largely engaged in consuming and defending paganism against those who would see Christ’s kingdom replace it in the public square…it is reasonable to make some inferences about what they truly belief, and where their loyalties really lie… Even if you think we’re supposed to lose the culture war, do you think you are supposed to lose the culture war in your own home, with your own children? Or how about in your church? Is your pastor supposed to lose the culture war in his own church? What about Christian business owners? Should they lose the culture war in the businesses they run? Work out the implications for yourself. You can see both the problems and benefits of your particular theology when you scale it down to a personal, household, and vocational level.”

“I’m not suggesting removing any and all secular songs from your playlist (had to get that out there first), but you know better than anyone, dear Christian, how the music you listen to affects and influences the way you think—for better or worse (1 Corinthians 6:12).” https://twitter.com/d_b_harrison/status/1518744654337830912?s=21&t=AuyyHC3laW7uBJS7821RsA

# Work and Keep
“The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” Genesis 2:15 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.2.15.ESV

Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. Ephesians 4:28

For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is … covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Ephesians 5:5

Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you… For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. 2 Thessalonians 3:6-11

Student Loans: Be honest, what are you really asking for? Aren’t you really asking, out of jealousy, for the government to steal what you covet to give to you in the form of free education? Do not be fooled by the false hope and idolatry of socialism! https://ministry.family.blog/america/socialism-marxism-communism/

8. You must not steal. (Exodus 20:15)
Do not take what is not yours. According to Martin Luther, “We must fear and love God, so that we will neither take our neighbor’s money or property, nor acquire it by fraud or by selling him poorly made products, but will help him improve and protect his property and career.”

10. You must not covet or desire your neighbor’s belongings. (Exodus 20:17)
Be happy with what God has provided for you and never want what belongs to others out of envy. “Have I looked with envy, jealousy or hatred toward the possessions, talents or achievements of others? Have I desired the downfall or loss of others out of evil intent that I might benefit? Have I grieved that God has bestowed greater blessings on others than on me?”

Christians Cussing and the Serrated Edge | Toby Sumpter https://youtu.be/3JIZhibhlKs 

Scripture is our standard for what is edifying and ministers grace. If we are committed to reading and studying all of Scripture, we should want the power of language exemplified in Scripture, which is sometimes stronger or coarser than we might think is necessary. In our fight against sin, we want to appropriately mock and denounce and expose it, while not being tainted by it: “And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh” (Jude 23). But God’s Word is a sharp blade that cuts our sin, not a foam nerf sword that merely plays with it. This is why we need to recover the fullness of God’s Word. It must be recovered by pastors and elders first of all, and the whole blade needs to be brought to bear on our sin. We keep saying that our words need to be edifying, but if you look around and don’t see any edifice, any actual building, then maybe we should stop doing what we’re doing and do something else. Yes, we need to be full of the fruit of the Spirit, kindness included, all the way up to the brim. But that same Spirit inspired the whole Bible, and that Word is sturdy, firm, fierce, and fiery, and Christ intends for His bride to be washed in the water of that word. That Word is the only firm foundation for a house that will withstand the storms and winds and floods of the world.” https://www.tobyjsumpter.com/sons-of-thunderpuppies-christians-cussing-and-the-serrated-edge/

“The Christian writer G.K. Chesterton said that we need to give children enough structure and discipline and understanding so that we can then “let good things run wild.”  That’s basically what we think education should be. Providing the skills and structure and love that children need to then navigate the world, to think independently, to explore, and cultivate a love of true learning.  This is contrary to education that cultivates role memorization, collectivist mindset, groupthink and neglects the many disciplines that were foundational for generations gone by.

PRACTICING A 72 HOUR POWER OUTAGE AT HOME https://fieldcraftsurvival.com/blog/practicing-a-72-hour-power-outage-at-home/

The possibility and probability of losing power are great enough to warrant training for it. One of the best ways to assess your response to the inevitability of losing power is to stage a 72-hour power outage drill in your own home. Believing in the scenario is paramount to the process and what it reveals will strengthen your level of preparedness… To start the challenge, you can turn off the main breaker in your house. This is the most abrupt manner of cutting your power… An important element to any mock scenario training is to have a purpose. It is easy to assume a role or set yourself in a situation. What is the task you and your family must accomplish? Sitting around will lead to boredom. Quite literally, think constructively. Think about having to build something that will affect your survival in your home. Ever try basic carpentry without power tools? Ever attempt baking in a Dutch oven with just coals? Take note of what you can do when you lose the precious resource of power. It will give you an idea of what low-tech tools are available that will take the place of more modern tools… Immediately following your 72-hour power outage at home drill, you should conduct an after-action review. This should expose the issues you had during the event. Look at what you did right and where you experienced trouble. If you are reviewing with your family, make sure you set expectations like “don’t complain unless you have a solution.” There is no room for complaining in a disaster. This will avoid any unnecessary chatter and griping that is cancerous to the process.”

Preparing for the Unexpected — Food, Water, Shelter https://blog.cheaperthandirt.com/preparing-for-unexpected-food-water-shelter/

“The Boy Scout motto is “Be Prepared.” For a Scout, that means being ready to help others at all times. It also means you are ready, willing, and able to do what is necessary for any situation that comes along… our basic needs haven’t changed throughout the centuries. Water, food, and shelter are at the top of the list. Following those are medical supplies, clothing, and tools — defensive tools and tools for planting, building, and maintaining… We have plenty of medical supplies, vitamins, and medications. We have lots of water — some in barrels, others in 5-gallon jugs, and yet more in the many 1-gallon jugs stored everywhere. We store both potable and non-potable water. The non-potable starts off as drinking water, but once it reaches a certain date, we keep it for uses such as bathing, flushing toilets, and general cleaning… We may or may not have power, so an alternative method of cooking with heat is important. We have a camp stove that runs from a propane tank, and we have several containers of canned heat. We also have a gas grill and a fire pit in the backyard. We have enough firewood to keep us warm for at least two months without power. We have enough food for our family for at least three months. And yes, we had a nice supply of toilet paper on hand. We also have some cast iron cookware for cooking over open flames.”

She got robbed at 5:10 pm, which is arguably the busiest time of the day. That should tell you something. These criminals don’t care about your gun control laws.”


THE THREAT YOU MISSED — ARE YOU PREPARED? https://www.thearmorylife.com/the-threat-you-missed-are-you-prepared/

In a confrontation, there is absolutely no question that victory favors the better-prepared individual… and it behooves one to ensure you have the skills to effectively defend yourself. Practice remains the key to success, and it will only be achieved by practicing the right things… In certain areas, civil unrest and a spike in violent crime have caused many people to re-evaluate their own personal safety… And if you are serious about personal defense, new shooters and old hands alike, you need to practice. But you need to do it wisely.”

“Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson did a great job exposing the blatant lies, chicanery, and fraud coming out of the Richard Irvin for Governor campaign.

Colion Noir: Why Does Joe Biden Keep Lying About People Owning Cannons? https://youtu.be/uE9KMlvJUo0

President Joe Biden using the Marxist tactic of repeating a lie often enough to make everyone think it’s true!

“I don’t know why Joe Biden keeps repeating this stupid statement that you couldn’t own a cannon when the Second Amendment was passed. Especially considering how many times it has been fact-checked as false, he still keeps saying it. The founding fathers wrote the Amendment because they wanted us to be able to defend against a tyrannical government; why would they write the Second Amendment and then limit the people to old, outdated arms? When the 2nd Amendment was passed, there were no federal laws about the type of gun you could own, and no states limited the kind of gun you could own… The Second Amendment didn’t say you can ban us from owning certain guns because you think we shouldn’t have them… Joe Biden has been making this stupid cannon argument for years and every year, it gets debunked, and he still keeps saying it. The Second Amendment doesn’t give the right to keep and bear arms; it protects it as a natural right.


“When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he assembled his 318 trained men, born in his household, and went in pursuit as far as Dan.” Genesis‬ ‭14:14‬ ‭CSB‬‬ 

“The right to life is a good example of what legal historians refer to as an objective right: it is objective in the sense that it exists outside ourselves and is unalienable… The right to life imposes obligations: you must do everything in your power to preserve it.”
