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.”

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

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.”

Psalms 149:6-9 (NASB)
[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,

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!

“Energy experts warn of price increases for Central Illinoisans… During Tuesday’s Peoria City Council meeting, a representative with the consulting firm Good Energy sounded the alarm on rising energy prices for Central Illinoisans. It’s a nationwide issue that’s been impacted by factors such as inflation and renewable energy not filling the gap left by fossil fuel plants that have closed or preparing to close… As power supply issues persist, Ameren Illinois said customers will see about a $500 dollar increase a year in their energy bills, beginning in June.”

“Darrell Castle talks about President Biden’s commencement address to the graduating class at the United States Naval Academy last Friday and how his address reflects American foreign policy and the future service of those young Navy Ensigns and Marine Second Lieutenants as they go forth to project American power around the world.”

“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.”

Possible summertime rolling blackouts a concern for Illinois manufacturers https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/possible-summertime-rolling-blackouts-a-concern-for-illinois-manufacturers/article_e5f418ea-d798-11ec-80d6-af0dfcdb450b.html

“A leading advocate for Illinois manufacturers is worried about price hikes and energy shortages this summer and into the future.  ‘There is going to be a capacity shortage and we’ve seen warnings from utilities and regional grid operators talking about potentially rolling brownouts as soon as this summer,’ said Mark Denzler, president and CEO of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association… Denzler said the energy available, especially in downstate areas, is shrinking due to last year’s Climate and Equitable Jobs Act, which pledged to eliminate Illinois fossil fuel power plants by 2045. ‘The state of Illinois is telling these traditional power generators, ‘You’re no longer welcome in Illinois and we’re going to close you down by a certain date,’’ Denzler said. ‘So what’s happened is those companies said, ‘If we’re going to have to close down, why would we invest hundreds of millions of dollars in these facilities? We’re simply going to close them early.’’”

Energy experts warn of price increases for Central Illinoisans https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/energy-experts-warn-of-price-increases-for-central-illinoisans/

“As the summer approaches, energy experts are warning the community about increased energy prices that are on the horizon. During Tuesday’s Peoria City Council meeting, a representative with the consulting firm Good Energy sounded the alarm on rising energy prices for Central Illinoisans. It’s a nationwide issue that’s been impacted by factors such as inflation and renewable energy not filling the gap left by fossil fuel plants that have closed or preparing to close… As power supply issues persist, Ameren Illinois said customers will see about a $500 dollar increase a year in their energy bills, beginning in June.”

“EIA WARNS OF FUEL SHORTAGES: The latest data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration reports that oil refinery capacity is likely to top out this summer, limiting production of gasoline and diesel. Meanwhile, as we reported earlier in the year, fuel inventories remain low, especially on the East Coast where fuel shortages are now expected. There are so far unconfirmed reports of East Coast truck stops running out of diesel. – M.S.”

Prayer walk – March for Life Resources https://ministry.family.blog/2021/01/26/prayer-walk-march-for-life-resources-1-29-2021/

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!

“‘The public school system, unfortunately, has not been working with us, but actively working against us,’ Cameron declared. ‘In my opinion, the public school system has become public enemy No. 1. We need to take back the education of our children because whoever controls the textbooks controls the future,’ the popular actor said. ‘Whoever’s shaping the hearts and minds and souls of our children will determine whether or not we live in a free country.‘“

Colion Noir: Florida Sheriff Says Homeowners Can Save Taxpayers Money by Shooting Intruders https://youtu.be/uZ7rO1w9HXc

“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?”

“Homeowners under attack by a burglar don’t need to retreat or try to escape but rather stand their ground, and, if necessary, use deadly force.

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.”

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.”

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.

How to be of service to the world for God: Obey His commends for how to lead and order your family!

“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.

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.”

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.”

“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.”

Jared Longshore: Raise Your Kids and Change the World https://youtu.be/-s7lx13b-0w 

“In this episode of Reformation and Revival, Jared Longshore discusses how to raise your children and change the world… The Christian family is the soil from which a Christian society and a Christian nation will grow. Without that soil, the fields will keep burning just as they are now.”

“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” 


“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” Ephesians 6:1   “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4  “… But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”” Joshua 24:15  “And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.” Genesis 17:7  “… and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”” Genesis 12:3

Defy Tyrants: The Biblical Mindset towards Food Prepping https://youtu.be/rnAopFw5YsY

“Mike Brabo, an expert in growing food and surviving under communism, shares his short thoughts in this video and more to come. SHARE his full talk with others so they can be warned of the times ahead. The difference between hoarding and prudence is found in scripture. When men hoard, they amass bigger barns for themselves with no thoughts on God’s purposes (Luke 12:13-24), however, prudent Christians should forsee the evil coming and hide themself (Proverbs 22:3) and store up enough to sustain themselves, and enough to give to those in need (2 Corinthians 8:12).” https://rumble.com/vt3ma7-the-fragile-food-supply-and-food-for-life.html?mref=hqg49&mrefc=2
