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.”

“Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands far off. For truth has stumbled in the public square, and honesty cannot enter.” Isaiah 59:14 HCSB https://bible.com/bible/72/isa.59.14.HCSB 

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,
[8] To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,
[9] To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the LORD!

# 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

Special Focus: Warnings of Power Shortages Summer 2022 https://ministry.family.blog/2022/06/01/special-focus-warnings-of-power-shortages-summer-2022/ 

What plans does your household, church, and community have in place to thrive and serve?

“Possible summertime rolling blackouts a concern for Illinois manufacturers… 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…”

“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.”

Scream Loudly and Carry No Stick at All

“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.”

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

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

AMENDMENT II

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

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.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:25-33‬ ‭ESV‬‬
https://bible.com/bible/59/eph.5.25-33.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.

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

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

# 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

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

“I’ve always been a lumens guy. Give me high lumens at a decent distance and I’m generally good. 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.”

Food and energy resource prices likely to continue increasing in the near term

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.”

Tying Nations to China Through Loans and Debt – Twenty Latin American nations have joined China’s Belt and Road initiative, in which China invests in a nation’s infrastructure, like the new container port China is building for Peru at the Port of Chancay.  China will also be supplying nations with civilian nuclear technology, helping them develop space programs, and providing them with Chinese 5G technology that experts have warned is a surveillance tool of the Chinese military… ‘(The Chinese) orchestrate those loans and in those contracts in ways to make sure that they get paid. Chinese banks oftentimes operate more like loan sharks. In other words, you know, ‘Give me the title to your car’, so to speak,’ Ellis noted.”

Let them vanish like water that runs away; when he aims his arrows, let them be blunted. Let them be like the snail that dissolves into slime, like the stillborn child who never sees the sun.

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.

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalm 55:22 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.55.22.ESV

# 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 

Does the seeming madness of things in the world today worry you? Pandemics, political authoritarianism, war, death. 

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 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

“Ukrainian Christians worshipping at a metro station in Kiev. They sing of forgiveness, salvation, mercy, joy, peace, and the people of Ukraine. A biblical light in the gloom of possible war.”

Christian Patriotism 
Sermon by Andrew Fuller in 1803, at a time when the UK was being threatened with invasion by Napoleon.
https://founders.org/2022/02/23/christian-patriotism/

“Though, as Christians, we are not of the world, and ought not to be conformed to it; yet, being in it, we are under various obligations to those about us. As husbands, wives, parents, children, masters, servants, &c., we cannot be insensible that others have a claim upon us, as well as we upon them… We know that the father of the faithful, who was only a sojourner in the land of Canaan, when his kinsman Lot with his family were taken captives by a body of plunderers, armed his trained servants, pursued the victors, and bravely recovered the spoil. It was on this occasion that Melchizedek blessed him, saying, ‘Blessed be Abraham of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: and blessed be the most high God, who hath delivered thine enemies into thine hand!’ … I allow that the sword is the last weapon to which we should have recourse. As individuals, it may be lawful, by this instrument, to defend ourselves or our families against the attacks of an assassin …” It is also not “unlawful to take up arms as members of civil society, when called upon to do so for the defence of our country… if it be right for the magistrate to bear the sword, and to use it upon evil-doers within the realm, it cannot be wrong to use it in repelling invaders from without; and if it be right on the part of the magistrate, it is right that the subject should assist him in it … there is another duty which we owe to our country; which is, That we pray to the Lord for it. It is supposed that religious people are a praying people.” 

Colion Noir: Why The Mainstream Media Drastically Underreports Defensive Gun Use https://youtu.be/brWObNOU3i0 

“Gun crimes dominate the mainstream media’s attention, while gun use in self-defense gets merely a tiny fraction of the headlines. Americans across the country have used guns to defend themselves and thwart crimes, but the reports often fly under the radar, and most people are unaware of how often guns are used in self-defense cases…  In a typical year, Lott said that the media reports about 2,000 defensive gun use stories, but he added, “that is a dramatic undercount because the vast majority of successful self-defense cases don’t make the news.” Lott said there are about 2 million defensive gun uses per year, according to the average of 18 national surveys.”

# 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

WEF- World Economic Forum
“If you haven’t been paying attention to what the World Economic Forum is and what they believe, you’d better start. It’s the most diabolical organization on the planet—and I’m not exaggerating.” Darrell  B. Harrison https://twitter.com/d_b_harrison/status/1496477123816607748?s=21

“Canada’s banks are perfectly situated to help lead the creation of a federated digital ID system between government and the private sector. The World Economic Forum agrees.” ~ Neil Parmenter, President & CEO Canadian Bankers Association https://twitter.com/thececilcharles/status/1496459393604460544?s=21

“Today, the fundamental reasons underpinning the loss of faith in our social contracts coalesce around issues of inequality, the ineffectiveness of most redistribution policies, a sense of exclusion and marginalization, and a general sentiment of unfairness… Although they are complex, the policy solutions do exist and broadly consist in adapting the welfare state to today’s world by empowering people and by responding to the demands for a fairer social contract… The pandemic will mark a turning point by accelerating this transition. It has crystallized the issue and made a return to the pre-pandemic status quo impossible… There is little doubt that it will be the catalyst for change and a source of critical momentum for the Great Reset.”

“Every evil thing they told us was coming is indeed coming. This is the turning of the world. These words are strong but true. They have used health matters to overhaul the West.

My Soul Among Lions // Why Do the Nations Rage? (Psalm 2) https://youtu.be/eD4pOW_rvOQ

“But you, O God, will cast them down into the pit of destruction; men of blood and treachery shall not live out half their days. But I will trust in you.” Psalm 55:23 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.55.23.ESV

Do not trust in politicians, they can not save you. When they die they return to the earth, and on that very day their plans perish! Psalm 146:3-4

Free healthcare, free education… Be honest, what are you really asking for? Aren’t you really asking, out of jealousy, for the government to steal what you covet from those that have more than you to give to you in the form of free education? Do not be fooled by the false hope and idolatry of globalism|socialism|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?”

God warned Samuel about when we trust in and depend on earthly kings instead of God: “’This is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons. . . He will take your daughters. . . He will take the best [of everything you have]. . . and you yourselves will become his slaves.’” – Paraphrase of 1 Samuel 8:7, 11-18

“Over and over, socialist demagogues have promised utopia, only to produce starvation on an extraordinary scale. In socialist Venezuela, its citizens have been reduced to eating cats, dogs and even pigeons!” Ron Paul

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

Household Prayer: Hope, Courage, and the Church in Ukraine

“Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. …” Psalm 27:1, 3, 13-14

Brothers today I am praying for hope and courage. I am praying for the Church in Ukraine. I pray that we would focus our eyes and hearts on our God of hope “without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” (Heb. 10:23)

I pray we are motivated to manage our households well, to be prophet, priest, provider, and protector. May our households be filled with the word of God and prayer and “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” (Rom. 15:13 )

Times of war are nothing new for the Church over the last 2000 years. Jesus warned we “will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.” (Matt. 24:6) Don’t be alarmed. God is still on the throne. Jesus is still the way the truth and the life! Fear not!

Hear from Pastor Suko in Ukraine, “the most astonishing and the most powerful thing I saw were not the rockets or the blown-out walls of an apartment building but rather the faith of men and women who have chosen to serve their God and turn their backs on the threat of tanks and mortars!” https://us10.campaign-archive.com/?u=27318069f1a18dea85677765e&id=2a7c31db5c

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/heb.10.23.ESV

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? … Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. … I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” Psalm 27:1, 3, 13-14 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.27.1-14.ESV

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”” Deuteronomy 31:6 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/deu.31.6.ESV

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/rom.8.37-39.ESV

“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).”

“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.)”

Censorship Collusion Between Biden Regime and Big Tech.

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.)”

“I have zero hope we can correct what is wrong by electing the right person to lead us. Yet, I am still hopeful that God will lead our nation to bow down before him again… We need to stop looking left and right. The right and left extremes make the same mistake: they place their hope in human institutions and humanistic reasoning. Both are flawed for the same reason: no God… I’m an American patriot, but my true patriotism is with the only kingdom that can never be destroyed: the kingdom of the Son of God (Dan. 2:44). I love America. But I’m standing, first and foremost, with God’s kingdom and no one, from either the Right or the Left, will ever shake me on this. I pledge allegiance to the unshakable kingdom—always.”

Gun Owners of America: Your Tax Dollars Could Double The ATF’s Confiscation Efforts https://youtu.be/-UbX1ffJAgM  

“Recently, the top gun-grabber in the Senate, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, announced he wants to increase ATF’s funding. Right now, the total ATF budget is 1.4 billion, but Schumer wants to direct 1.5 billion JUST to “focus on gun violence.” That’s more than DOUBLE ATF’s current budget! Please give our 2A warriors on Capitol Hill help. It will take less than a minute to contact your Senators and representative and tell them to demand not a dime of taxpayer dollars goes to ATF.

GOA Spokeswoman, Antonia Okafor, also joined Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News to discuss the ATF’s plans and what it means for eventual gun confiscation.”
