Household Prayer: Rule Well

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” … God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” … God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” Genesis 1:26, 28, 31 NASB1995

Well brothers, the school season is almost at an end. I hope and pray it was a joy and a blessing for you as it was for me. I have enjoyed weekly scripture meditation and prayer for you and our community. Until next season starts I pray we love, enjoy, instruct, and disciple our families well. I pray we rule well in our households. Genesis 1:26,28,31; Eph. 6:4

“Dominion is a fact – human beings simply have it. It’s God’s doing. We can’t abdicate. Human beings possess power over all the creatures of the world… But dominion isn’t arbitrary power, at least not originally. In the Christian faith human dominion is subject to God’s dominion. And it is informed by God’s Law – his moral standard, his holiness.” (In the House of Tom Bombadil by C.R. Wiley)

“The reason that God creates man on the earth, according to Genesis, is for productive, representative rulership. This is what it means to exercise dominion: to fruitfully order the world in God’s stead…” (It’s good to be a man: A handbook for Godly masculinity by Michael Foster and Dominic Bnonn Tennant)

“Families are the nurseries of all societies; and the first combinations of mankind. Well-ordered families naturally produce a good order in other societies… Every serious Christian is concerned, that he may be serviceable in the world… but are you not a member of some family? If that family may be your means, O Christian, become a well-regulated family, in that point you will become serviceable; I had almost said, incomprehensibly serviceable.” A Family Well Ordered by Cotton Mather (1699) modern English translation by Patrick Doucette 

“For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.” Genesis 18:19 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/gen.18.19.KJV

“You May here observe a most comfortable connection, between, He will, and they shall. Says the Lord, He will Command his children, and they shall keep the way of the Lord. It seems, if every one that is owner of a family, would faithfully command, and manage those that belong unto him, through the blessing of God; they would generally keep His way, and His law… ‘If parents did their duties as they ought, the Word publically preached would not be the ordinary means of regeneration in the Church, but only without the Church, among infidels: God would so pour out His grace upon the children of His people, and hear prayers for them, and bless endeavors for their holy education, that we should see the promises made good unto our seed.’” A Family Well Ordered by Cotton Mather (1699) modern English translation by Patrick Doucette

The Politics of the Apostles’ Creed | Toby Sumpter https://youtu.be/wP128LYZ_ZM

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, and He created the first man out of the dust of the ground and formed the first woman from that man’s side. And God brought them together, and they became husband and wife, one flesh, and were given the blessing of a mission to be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it.  And all of this goes together. There is a God and He made all things, and therefore He knows all things. He knows what all things are for. And He designed the world to be fruitful by the labors of man with a woman at his side, in the covenant of marriage, bearing children. This is the foundation of civilization. This is the foundation of all economics, all politics, all culture. This is like gravity, logic, math – this is reality, and every attempt to ignore this, deny this, subvert this, or openly destroy this is war with the world as it really is and therefore war with the One who made it all.https://www.tobyjsumpter.com/the-politics-of-the-apostles-creed/

# 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

Real Wealth: Proponents of industrialism will no doubt point to the “hockey stick of human prosperity” beginning in the nineteenth century. For centuries, per-capita GDP held steady at less than $ 2 per day. By 1900, that figure rose fivefold to $ 11 per day. The problem with this statistic, however, is that self-sufficiency doesn’t require money. Milk from the cow, eggs from the chicken, pork from the hog, fresh fruits and vegetables from the orchard and garden, wide open spaces and fresh country air—such amenities would demand a high income today… Families who lived on farms during the Great Depression would often relate that they never knew they were in a depression. Their pantries were stocked, their homes were heated, they still had jobs. Their wealth was standing in the barn, in the fields, and in the accumulated knowledge of generations. Irresponsible speculation in the markets did not collapse their stock.” Durable Trades: Family-Centered Economies That Have Stood the Test of Time by Rory Groves https://a.co/6EHcXWf | https://a.co/6rtuhwY

A Biblical outline to think about Illegal Immigration: Private Property, Boundary Markers, Sojourners, and Self Defense

Private property is God’s design.

The bible speaks of boundary stones, the markers that indicate the boundary of private property. Proverbs warns, “Do not move an ancient boundary stone set up by your forefathers.” Proverbs 22:28. 

The law of Moses says, “Cursed is the man who moves his neighbor’s boundary stone.” Deuteronomy 27:17. “This scripture was a command by God not to encroach on another’s property, as it would be in fact stealing land from their neighbor.” https://www.ccgf.org/do-not-move-the-ancient-boundary-stone/

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?

Believers are to obey civil laws and authorities unless they violate God’s law

That includes immigration laws!

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” Romans 13:1 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.13.1.ESV

Nations, boundaries and dwelling places are the providence of God

“And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,” Acts 17:26 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/act.17.26.ESV 

God’s compassion for the sojourner

“He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.” Deuteronomy 10:18-19 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/deu.10.18-19.ESV

““‘Cursed be anyone who perverts the justice due to the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’” Deuteronomy 27:19 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/deu.27.19.ESV

So yes, when in your midst witness to them, care for them, show them Christ’s love. But…

Be wise, be just, be compassionate, but be lawful and be safe!

They violated the law to get here and there will be criminals, wolves, among the sheep… terrorists, sexual predators, human traffickers, cartel gang members. You must protect your family, your neighbor, and your community from wickedness.

“Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.” Proverbs 25:26 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/pro.25.26.ESV

Several hundred showed up in Springfield Wednesday… gun owners are still awaiting the outcome of litigation challenging the constitutionality of requiring a state-issued Firearm Owner Identification Card to keep a gun in your home. ‘If we get an unfavorable ruling, we’re going to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court,’ Pearson said… Elik said the gun laws the Democratic majority passes don’t make law-abiding citizens safer.

“DEL RIO, Texas—As the Biden administration prepares to drop the Title 42 public health provision on May 23, Border Patrol agents and local officials along the border are bracing for an even greater influx of illegal immigrants. “They’re preparing for us to start apprehending over 500,000 a month,” a Border Patrol agent, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of repercussions, told The Epoch Times on April 4… “So really what Border Patrol is now becoming is essentially just a greeter.””

“Your government, without the consent of the people, is literally transforming the population of America right in front of our eyes.  The Biden Administration is working with drug cartels to import millions of people who will forever change our country… If any enemy of the United States had secretly compromised a president so that he was working for them instead of us, that traitorous president’s immigration policy would look exactly like what Biden is doing right now.  Erase our border, and let the world walk in.  They’re applauding this chaos in Beijing and Moscow.  To restore common sense to our immigration policy, we must elect conservatives to take back Congress.  Then we must impeach Joe Biden and restore our borders before we lose our country.”

Church Membership – Toby Sumpter (Exhortation) | King’s Cross Church https://youtu.be/RRVybwWwbNQ

“So our position on church membership is that at the very least there ought to be two lists of names: a list of elders and a list of members. And the people on the two lists need to know one another well enough and there needs to be enough interaction between them that members can consider the way of life of their leaders and imitate their faith as it says, and the leaders need to know their people well enough to actually watch over their souls and give an account to God for them.

“Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith… Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.” Hebrews 13:7, 17 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/heb.13.7-17.ESV


A convicting thought…

Elders, If you don’t -know- who you are responsible for, you cannot watch over their souls. Prov. 27:23

Members, If you don’t -know- who your leaders are, you cannot consider the outcome of their conduct or way of life. Heb. 13:7
(Gashmu Saith It: How to build Christian communities that save the world, by Douglas Wilson)

“Our families are divided into districts with each elder responsible for a portion of the membership. Our goal is to contact each family shepherd at least once each month by phone and/or in person to pray, assess spiritual needs, answer questions, and fellowship with and encourage one another… Finally, we attempt to visit each home for an annual elder home visit. This is an official visit designed to assess the spiritual condition of the family as well as give them opportunity to ask questions and address any pertinent issues.” Family Shepherds (By the author of Family Driven Faith): Calling and Equipping Men to Lead Their Homes by Voddie Baucham Jr. https://a.co/7hbI4f8

# Work and Keep

And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.” … In our journey toward a new family economy, my chief observation is that it takes much longer than I ever imagined it would. There is no rushing this process… But those who persevere and dedicate themselves to building something that will last will pass on a rich inheritance to their own children in the process.” Durable Trades: Family-Centered Economies That Have Stood the Test of Time by Rory Groves https://a.co/eCbUKbU

As a husband and father, this idea is repugnant to me. I’m guessing it is abhorrent to you as well… I will show you how you can use a simple hydroponic system to grow fresh food inside your own home… Few things are as rewarding as providing your own food. It is a skill that our ancestors used to survive and one we can use to build our own resiliency and independence.

Justice Department Charges 12 People for Arming Gang Members in Chicago https://link.theepochtimes.com/mkt_app/justice-department-charges-12-people-for-arming-gang-members-in-chicago_4378536.html

To be clear, gun control laws were ignored and violated! “To secure firearms from federally licensed dealers, the defendants provided false information on firearms purchase application forms.”

“Among those charged, three were enlisted members of the U.S. Army at the time of the crime. Stationed at the Fort Campbell military installation in Clarksville, Tennessee, they were involved in the purchase and transfer of ‘dozens of firearms to the streets of Chicago,’ … In total, Chicago saw 3,561 shooting incidents last year, according to the police department. This is 1,415 more shootings than in 2019.” 

All the more reason that good self-governed citizens should be armed and trained to defend themselves and their loved ones from the wicked!

“Western leaders are condemning the atrocities believed to have been committed in Ukrainian towns by retreating Russian troops. Officials say the bodies of 410 civilians have been found in towns around the capital, Kyiv, that were recaptured from Russian forces… Bucha’s mayor said hundreds of townspeople were buried in a mass grave. A satellite image showed a 45-foot long trench near a church.

Why Is Hunter’s Laptop Scandal a Scandal? https://www.castlereport.us/why-is-hunters-laptop-scandal-a-scandal/

The laptop story was labeled as Russian disinformation then Hunter’s computer vanished along with his mysterious business deals in Ukraine and Communist China. The scandal reemerged thanks to our friends at the New York Times who after 18 months of lying about Russian disinformation finally admitted, well yes, the information contained on the laptop is real and the laptop itself is authentic. Now that Joe Biden is President, the Times feels safe, I suppose, in finally telling the truth which might have swung the election if Biden’s owned media had not seen fit to run interference for him…. What does all this mean for our world today and especially the war in Ukraine? For one thing, the laptop and the media’s treatment of the scandal, reveals the hypocrisy of everything the U.S. says about everything including the war. The war in Ukraine is in part the manifestation of a global conflict between two competing world powers and two competing world views. It is a defining moment in world history. Will the U.S. lose its status as a lone superpower? Will the great reset take hold and turn the world into a giant intellectual prison? If you accept the new liberal world order you are acceptable, but if you don’t you will be cast out and demonized. No borders, no walls, no USA at all. That is the rallying cry of those who seek our destruction, and yet they keep being elected. Finally, folks, I have fought for and defended Western Civilization for most of my adult life, but we have lost the war. I’m outraged, angry, but most of all very sad about what has been done to my country.  I know this is an intentional attack against America and Western Civilization to destroy it and usher in the new liberal world order curtesy of Davos and The World Economic Forum, in which we all live as guarded and surveilled sheep on the master’s global plantation. We are doomed to that future unless we can find the courage to vomit these people out of our lives before it’s too late.”

They discuss the need for theology in the public square and how Christians should engage with government.”

“The reformed ‘did not look at their children as neutral objects whom Christ would draw to himself for the first time later on, but as beings who, through the covenant, by virtue of being born of believing parents, enjoyed a  relationship with Christ, belonged to him, and were to be viewed as his subjects.’ Pro Rege, vol. 2, pg. 538”

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

Brothers today I’m praying for my wife and would encourage the same for you. I’m praying specifically that they have joy and peace in their role. I’m praying that we would “love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,” (Eph. 5:25) A book I read a few years ago, The Household and the War for the Cosmos: Recovering a Christian Vision for the Family by C.R. Wiley, takes a look at the place of the household in God’s divine order of the cosmos from Ephesians. Christ’s defeat of death and Satan and His redemption of His people (1:10,21,22; 2:4-10,19-22) , the establishment of the Church and its work  (3:10,11), and then the next battle formation is surprisingly the household. Wives, husbands, children, and bondservants (5:22,25; 6:1,4,5,9). Then it concludes with the armor for the battle (6:10-20). With that in mind I pray we would see how important our households are in the divine order and the battle for the cosmos, and that we would pray for our helpmeet in this important work.

“In this episode of Ask Doug, pastor Doug Wilson answers a question about whether we should “just preach the gospel.””

# 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

“There is no hint in the Bible that your aggressive instincts are a result of the fall. You are not, in other words, a defective woman. Your desire to conquer and to subdue, to hew down and to build up, to form and to shape, has nothing to do with the curse. It is man’s natural, pre-fall, created purpose. You yearn to bend the world to your will because Adam was created to bend the world to his will. Where things go wrong is not with our natural yearnings, but with our wills themselves.” Its Good To Be A Man 

Warrior Poet Society: How Suffering Can Save Us All https://warriorpoetsupplyco.com/blog/how-suffering-can-save-us-all/

“comfort, not suffering, is what’s causing us to crumble and melt like snowflakes. The right kinds of suffering, though, make us tough as nails—physically and spiritually. The right kinds of suffering can save us all… To put that in Biblical terms from Romans 5: the suffering produced perseverance. The perseverance produced character. The character produced hope… Now when we suffer, we grow, because Jesus conquered the futility of life… Suffering is your friend. And I thank God for the earlier suffering that I’ve had in life. It’s made me who I am and God forbid that I shirk every amount of suffering that may come my way because I know I’m still on a growth journey. And I know I’m meant to go through certain sufferings so that I’d be made better and I’d be a better resource for those around me, for the world in general. Train Hard. Train Smart. Don’t Let Them Make You Weak”

This is what Romans 5 is talking about. Ultimate hope comes through suffering. How does God save us? Through suffering.

The Bible tells us that Jesus suffered for us and died in our place to literally save the world. This is ultimate suffering that saves us from ultimate suffering. The punishment kind of suffering.

But it doesn’t mean that Jesus saved us from ALL suffering. What it means is that God ensured that the suffering we experience has a good, strengthening quality to it. Jesus suffered so that our suffering would have a purpose and ultimately a good result.

Now when we suffer, we grow, because Jesus conquered the futility of life.

Household Prayer: Wife, Helpmeet, Battle Buddy

“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”

We need all of God’s word for all of life, and the biblical counselor’s task is to grasp the word, give it well, and guide souls by it to wholeness in Christ. As the Puritans often remarked, we are to teach “doctrine for life” (1 Tim 1:5).”

“Consider now your own care of souls in light of the age to come… Take steps to cultivate a life of careful obedience (Eph 5:15f). Anxiety can tempt strugglers to throw up their hands, crying “What’s the use?” But Scripture teaches Christians will stand before God for an accounting of our lives, though not for judgment (Rom 14:12). Jesus has taken all punishment for our sins at the cross (Isa 53:4-6), such that our standing and acceptance is secure in him, our obedience made acceptable in his, and we are now able to live for his glory (1 Cor 10:31). Thus the Catechism instructs us to pursue obedience to God’s revealed will (Q 44), making it our aim to be pleasing to him (2 Cor 5:9). Our desire is to hear “well done, good and faithful servant” (Matt 25:23) on that Day…”

Lessons from Ukraine:
1 – Citizens be armed ahead of time
2 – Have all the gear and ammo ahead of time
3 – Train and prepare before the war!

T.REX ARMS: Ukrainian Special Operations Sig MCX https://youtu.be/ZLExKV0ajeE

“As images emerge out of Ukraine, we have continued to note the guns and gear used by civilians and military personnel. Typically, we see AKMs of various kinds being used by Russian and Ukrainian forces, but when images of a Western rifle like the MCX surface, curiosity arises. This week we built out a clone of the MCX rifles used by Ukrainian special operations, with a video on said rifle and its capabilities.”

Ukrainian SOF MCX Loadout https://help.trex-arms.com/hc/en-us/articles/4585397271959

“In addition to the video, we took the time to go over the details of this build. Why would someone choose a fixed magnifier over a flip to the side magnifier, and why choose one MCX stock over another? These are some questions we answer in the Loadout article.”

this always come down to training. If you want to be proficient with anything, you need to train it, get reps, and become comfortable with your tools, because if you suck, you suck.”

A HISTORY OF THE MOLOTOV COCKTAIL: CAN IT STOP A TANK? https://www.thearmorylife.com/molotov-cocktail-vs-tank-a-history-of-this-desperate-measure/

“the response of the Ukrainian people has been equally surprising (and also inspiring), as their government has issued automatic rifles to ordinary citizens, and a modern militia army quickly rose to fight the invaders. Along with some basic firearms training, Ukrainian officials provided instructions for the creation and use of Molotov cocktails, the time-honored anti-tank weapon of last resort. Looking back, the Molotov cocktail was notably used by the Hungarians in their uprising against the Soviets (October 23rd to November 11th, 1956) and to a lesser extent during the Czech Uprising of August 1968. We’ll take a look at how this simple incendiary has been served up to invading armies for more than 80 years… As history repeats itself, over and over again, the use of Molotov cocktails, smashed against the side of an invader’s tank, are witnessed time and time again. Today is no different; all you have to do is look to the bravery of the Ukrainian people in their fight to remain free.”

The Best Bang for Your Buck Combat Loadout https://warriorpoetsupplyco.com/blog/the-best-bang-for-your-buck-combat-loadout/

“Maybe you’re not kicking in doors with the 2nd Ranger Battalion or deploying to combat, but you still want to have a decent tactical loadout so you’re ready for the zombies or other combat-like applications. It never hurts to be ready with some good solid gear and to do it without going broke… Whether you’re a civilian waiting for the apocalypse or armed forces and military looking to modify your loadout, these recommendations will give you a balance, best bang for your buck option for any area of your kit. As always, gear isn’t everything. Train Hard. Train Smart.”

“Russia’s actions in Europe have drawn the eyes of the United States and its allies to the West, as they did in decades past, as meanwhile a larger, more formidable force gathers strength in the East, setting its sights on dominating the Indo-Pacific, and then the world… Nalapat pinned the blame on Washington and NATO for engaging in a series of strategic missteps that he believed culminated in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine… Russia and China are deepening their relationship, in ways previously unseen. Two weeks before the invasion, as Russia was drawing heavy international criticism for its plans to attack Ukraine, Putin and Xi proclaimed a “no limits” partnership, a bilateral relationship ‘superior to political and military alliances of the Cold War era.’”

AMENDMENT II 

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

https://ministry.family.blog/america/second-amendment/


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

Household Prayer: Solid Foundations

Brothers, I’m praying that we would be capable swordsmen able to wield the Word of God well to be disciple makers and biblical counselors in our homes. I pray God would equip us to develop a cultural theology for our families. God has us in this world for a reason, and it is not so we can float along in the worlds cultural lazy river! I pray we are establishing a solid foundation (Matt. 7:24) in our homes. I pray it is cultivated and grows into a Godly culture that the worldly cultural flood can not destroy! ““Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”” Matt. 7:24-27

“We need all of God’s word for all of life, and the biblical counselor’s task is to grasp the word, give it well, and guide souls by it to wholeness in Christ. As the Puritans often remarked, we are to teach “doctrine for life” (1 Tim 1:5).” Counsel from the Confession? 1689 Eschatology and Pastoral Biblical Counseling https://founders.org/2022/02/04/counsel-from-the-confession-1689-eschatology-and-pastoral-biblical-counseling/

In Colossians 2:6-10 “Paul calls on us to be so grounded in Jesus Christ that no one can take you captive with hollow and deceptive philosophies… Christ has given us His Word and that Word is authoritative, sufficient, and final. It teaches us that God is the Creator of this world. He has ordered it… He alone is righteous and He has revealed His righteousness to us in the moral law… In a phrase, this is God’s world and He gets to set the rules.” By What Standard: God’s world… God’s rules https://press.founders.org/shop/by-what-standard-gods-world-gods-rules/ 

““Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”” Matthew 7:24-27 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.7.24-27.ESV

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.” Colossians 2:6-10 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/col.2.6-10.ESV

A Witness Against Wokeness: What Modern Christians Can Learn from an Ex-Communist https://founders.org/2022/02/24/a-witness-against-wokeness-what-modern-christians-can-learn-from-an-ex-communist/

“we are living at a time when Christians in America need to re-learn what past generations knew, and what Christians living in Cuba, China, and Czechoslovakia know, all too well: Communism, and its younger sibling Socialism, are godless ideologies that harm the massesnearly 100 million people died during the twentieth century under Communist regimes. And hence, it was both right and responsible for evangelicals during the Cold War to stand opposed to ideas of Karl Marx and his Communist Manifesto… Wokeness is making inroads within the church, too. From calls for social justice (largely undefined) to cries that Christian Nationalism (also undefined) are threatening our country, those in the church are missing something that previous generations did not and could not miss—namely, the evil that comes from a man-centered, God-denying, government-enforced attempt to build back better… To those who have not seen, heard, or known about the inner-workings of Communism, let Chambers timeless words [of this article] be a warning… In a letter to his children, we find the testimony of a man who knew the evil of Communism existentially, not just academically. Thus, to a generation who is inclined towards socialism and unmoved by the evils of Communism, we—especially, those in the church—need to hear Whittaker Chambers…”

“As Christians living in this world, therefore, we need to know the ideas and ideologies that are threatening the church, and we need by God’s grace to expose their darkness and point people to the light… let us continue to bear witness to the truth, and following the boldness of Whittaker Chambers and all martyrs (witnesses) of the faith, let us speak the truth of God. out loud, in public, and without shame. So help us God! Soli Deo Gloria.” https://founders.org/2022/02/24/a-witness-against-wokeness-what-modern-christians-can-learn-from-an-ex-communist/

Crypto currency and the Church – super noob getting started notes https://ministry.family.blog/2021/02/19/crypto/
Crypto Currency and Cancel Culture: Because cancel culture includes being able to bank, i.e. being allowed to or able to buy and sell. The Church could learn something here. Revelation 13:17

Coinbase Bytes: Ukraine is seeing record crypto donations. Ukranians are using crypto to protect their wealth and resist Russia’s invasion. https://links.coinbase.com …

“For Ukrainians, emergency economic measures — including cash withdrawal limits (about $3,350 per day) — have prompted the country’s government, citizens, and even newspapers to call for crypto aid… Ukraine has raised over $30 million in cryptocurrency since tweeting an appeal for donations on Saturday… Meanwhile, a Berlin-based blockchain startup called Arweave is attempting to preserve historical documents about the crisis — so far its network of 1,000 nodes holds about 50 terabytes of related data… Why it matters… Ukranians are using crypto to defend themselves from Russia’s invasion, protect their wealth, and fund their escapes to neighboring nations. In one sobering tweet, a citizen explained: ‘My Ukrainian credit cards don’t work anymore. I’m safe physically in Kazakhstan, but all my savings are gone. Crypto is the only money I still have, and today I can say without exaggeration that $BTC, $ETH and #NFT[s] are going to save my life while I can’t come back home.‘” 

# Trained Men 
“he led forth his trained men, born in his house, 318 of them” Genesis 14:14 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/gen.14.14.ESV

“We would be wise to remember that the Athenian historian Thucydides in the Melian Dialogue of his History of the Peloponnesian War characterizes hope as danger’s comforter. In modern military and intelligence parlance, the ancient Greek general’s text translates as hope is not a course of action. While this is true, hope is oftentimes all one has in times of despair. The lesson is one as old as time: Be prepared.” The Devil’s Hand: A Thriller (Terminal List Book 4) by Jack Carr https://a.co/e84scQE

Then I took a rifle nighttime course and really appreciated a light’s ability to throw light at longer distances. When Andrew from surefire Told me they were launching their Turbo Series of high candela lights that are focused on long-distance lighting I got a little giddy.  Lumens are the total amount of light put out by a device the higher the lumens the greater the area is lit up. However, Candela is the amount of light put out by a device in a particular direction. Essentially, High Lumens is focused on making things really bright up close and Candela focuses on making things bright at further distances.”

Forward Observer https://youtu.be/Px23VBXFMXk

“Corn, Soybeans, and Wheat futures continue to near or hit daily price increases. The primary driver of price increases is the war in Europe as commodities markets brace for global trade disruptions.” Wheat prices are up nearly 32% over the last 12months aloneChina’s actions will likely put pressure on world markets and drive up prices for the selected commodities. Analysts believe China has already stockpiled between 60-70% of the world’s grain reserves. Oil prices in London rose 7.7% on Wednesday, wheat 7.6%, aluminum rose 1.3%, and corn futures climbed 2.9% to their highest since 2012.”
