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

“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

“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

“A righteous man who falters before the wicked Is like a murky spring and a polluted well.” Proverbs 25:26 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/pro.25.26.NKJV 

“Therefore I positioned men behind the lower parts of the wall, at the openings; and I set the people according to their families, with their swords, their spears, and their bows. 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

Either he is musing, or he is relieving himself, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.”” 1 Kings 18:25-27 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/1ki.18.25-27.ESV

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!

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.”

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/

Warrior Poet Society: Why We Left Public Education https://warriorpoetsupplyco.com/blog/why-we-left-public-education/

“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. Groupthink could be the death of us all… Train Hard. Train Smart. And for the sake of our future, get rid of the devices and give them the world’s best books.https://youtu.be/vK5iEkPw0bM

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.

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

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

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

“If a thief is found breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there shall be no bloodguilt for him,” Exodus 22:2 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/exo.22.2.ESV

“For the first time since 2019, the Illinois Gun Owner Lobby Day, or I-GOLD, took place in Springfield. The event, which draws hundreds if not thousands of gun owners a year to the capitol to lobby lawmakers, was canceled in 2020 and 2021 because of the prohibition of the public entering the capitol during the COVID-19 pandemic. 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.”

The End!

A Trumpet Blown in London: Benjamin Keach and the Doctrine of the Last Judgment https://founders.org/2022/02/04/a-trumpet-blown-in-london-benjamin-keach-and-the-doctrine-of-the-last-judgment/

“Day of judgment! Day of wonders!
Hark! the trumpet’s awful sound,
louder than a thousand thunders,
shakes the vast creation round.
How the summons will the sinner’s heart confound!”
Newton

Let [Christians] lift up their hearts with joy! What a blessed and happy condition are they in now! But what will their state be when this life is ended? Such need not to fear death; for, as their souls go then to Christ, so when Christ comes, he will bring them with him; “they shall appear with him in glory.” What a harvest of joy.”

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/

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…”

“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.”

“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

Household Prayer: Lent Easter Devotion Season

“To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” ‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬ https://bible.com/bible/59/1pe.5.11.ESV

Brothers tomorrow, March 2 2022, starts the 40 day devotional season leading to Easter. I’ve chosen a “40 Days of Lent” reading plan to read in our household. I’m praying for sweet time in God’s word for our household and yours. Praying for growing faith and hunger to know God more in our children. Praying for the good news of Christ’s redeeming work on the cross and His resurrection from the dead to work in them and through them in everything they do for all of their lives. All to the glory of God our Savior! “To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 5:11 ESV

40 Days of Lent reading plan: https://www.bible.com/en/reading-plans/85

“Lent has always been a time to turn our attention to all that has been done for us on the cross in Christ. This lavish gift can be meditated on year after year, and still would leave us to wonder in amazement. Through this reading plan, you will walk through the gospel accounts in chronological order, tracing the steps of Jesus during his last week of his earthly ministry. This plan is 47 days in length, but the seven Sundays are days of rest according to tradition.”

We have been told that we people are the chance result of impersonal chaos working its dark magic on the universe… The outcome of such thinking? Humanity is disenchanted…

But this is not the biblical account of man… God, the beautiful one, made the human race as his capstone work, his corporeal masterpiece (Ps 8:3-6; 27:4) … The imago dei marks out humanity as an enchanted race. Tragically, humanity disenchanted itself by following the anti-wisdom of the serpent…

If we have assumed… that our children learned what they needed to know simply by ecclesial and cultural osmosis, let us be clear that we may hold this assumption no longer. Now is not the time to play down our doctrine of mankind; now is the time to teach it with confidence and with joy, seeking to be witnesses to fellow sinners and guides to all God’s flock.

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah” Psalm 46:1-3 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.46.1-3.ESV

# Make Disciples of all Nations
“‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!’” Romans 10:15 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.10.15.ESV

“The Lord answered Moses, “Is the Lord’s power limited? You will see whether or not what I have promised will happen to you.”” Numbers 11:23 HCSB https://bible.com/bible/72/num.11.23.HCSB

Don’t limit God’s power. Don’t fall into the trap of narrowly defining the power of the Gospel. 

MARRIAGE IT WAS GODS IDEA https://www.ltw.org/read/my-devotional/2022/02/marriage-it-was-gods-idea 

“I think God must love weddings. Consider this: Jesus performed His first miracle at a wedding by turning water into wine (see John 2:1-11). At the beginning of history, the first man wed the first woman when God presented Eve to Adam (see Genesis 2:21-24). And at the end of history, there will be the wedding feast of the Lamb when Christ and His bride, the Church, are joined together forever (see Revelation 19:6­-9).”

Daily News Brief for Friday, February 18th, 2022 https://crosspolitic.com/podcast/daily-news-brief-for-friday-february-18th-2022/

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has voiced his support for a bill that would prohibit the discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the state’s primary schools… “The larger issue with all of this is parents must have a seat at the table when it comes to what’s going on in their schools,” he added.” NO! Parents are the authority! They are not just a seat at the table. How far we have fallen!

Parents, do not give your children over to an institution that does not acknowledge that you are the authority over your children’s education! God did not entrust them to you so you could neglect that duty!

PISTOL RED DOTS: ARE IRON SIGHTS BETTER? https://www.thearmorylife.com/pistol-red-dots-are-iron-sights-better/ 

“Many old salts who have decades of experience with iron-sighted handguns may initially be frustrated when trying out a red dot optic.  My initial attempts were hardly stellar, but a class on using a red dot optic got me on the right track… The biggest advantage an MRDS brings to the table is a single plane of focus. To get on target, the shooter simply superimposes the red dot on the target and presses the trigger. With a tight grip and good trigger press, the end result will be a hit at the point of aim. In reality, this is much simpler than obtaining a proper sight picture with iron sights. When using traditional iron sights, the eye goes from the target, to the front sight, to the rear sight, and back to the front sight. This requires the use of multiple focal planes and may be difficult to pull off when subjected to extreme stress.”

Forward Observer: Bank run in Canada: The Daily SA for Thursday 17 FEB 2022 https://youtu.be/xCWC2d7Cmx8 

BANK RUN IN CANADA: Investment blog InvestmentWatch is reporting a possible bank run in Canada. According to multiple social media accounts, Canadians are concerned with Prime Minister Trudeau’s invoking the Emergencies Act and their subsequent ability to access their money held in Canada’s financial institutions. Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister said Tuesday that, under the Emergencies Act, the government can order banks to immediately freeze or suspend bank accounts without a court order and be protected from civil liability. Media reporting indicated that individuals associated with the Freedom Convoy protest began having their bank accounts frozen or suspended shortly after the Deputy Prime Minister’s announcement. Financial analysts reported yesterday Canadians began making large withdrawals from banks across the country, resulting in a previously unseen number of cash outages at Canada’s major banking institutions. (Analyst Comment: The current run on banks in Canada is a foreseeable outcome of threatening the integrity of the banking system with arbitrary seizure of citizens’ assets. The Canadian Parliament is set to vote on its approval of the Trudeau government’s use of the Emergencies Act today or tomorrow. If the Parliament fails to support Trudeau’s decision, look for a compromise or possible revocation of the Emergencies Act. – M.M.)”

LAWMAKERS PRESS YOUTUBE TO REMOVE “GHOST GUN” CONTENT: Congressional members are pushing YouTube to remove firearm videos that “instruct viewers on how to manufacture and assembly unserialized, untraceable and undetectable ghost guns.” [which by the way are entirely legal] Lawmakers stated that “the steps that YouTube has taken thus far are insufficient”. The firearms that Congressional members are specifically concerned about are 3D printed and “do-it-yourself” gun making kits. (AC: The cited reasons of concern are tied to the sense that domestic terrorism threats are rising. YouTube hosts many of the online firearm education content with the most viewers. Putting pressure on social media companies has been a mainstay for limiting information content deemed harmful. Expected continued demonetization efforts and platform banning of firearm related content. – D.F.)”
