Our Oath Keepers Prayer/Fast focus this past Wednesday was Joshua 3 & 4. As a reminder, we organized P/F Wednesdays as our most effective weapon in what we believe to be a spiritual war of powers and principalities.
Question of the Day: Communist ideology is an ideology of the devil, and as time has passed, people have seen more and more clearly that everywhere communism goes, it is accompanied by violence, lies, war, famine, and dictatorship. The question is, why are there still so many people who wholeheartedly help the devil spread its lies, even becoming its obedient tools? ~ The Epoch Times, How the Specter of Communism is Ruling Our World
This week was an amazing week in an amazing month of fast-moving change and revelation. There has never been a greater opportunity for the gut-check analysis of situation, course, and correction…ever. And yet the question of the day remains…the question of the day. Even though the answer looms larger by the day, before each and every one of us each and every day. Almost as if God Himself is patiently willing our change of heart.
Joshua 3 & 4 are so many messages in one read. “Sanctify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” Time after time, from Moses to Joshua, from parting of the Red Sea to the drying of the Jordan; wonders for the sheep, and hell for the goats…who never seem to learn. The lessons of Joshua 3 and 4 are almost too simple, and are echoed throughout the history of mankind. Trust in God leads to the “land of milk and honey” while trust in man leads to the guillotine and far worse…as we learned via the American vs the French Revolution. One hundred years later, the Devil took the form of a peasant monk named Rasputin to lead the world to an even bloodier grave than his Robespierre’s counterpart who merely soaked the Parisian streets in mostly Christian/Catholic blood. And here we are almost exactly one hundred years to the day later, stumbling headlong into an even greater, darker, and bloodier abyss than the previous two combined…all for lacking the learning of the simple lesson provided for us in Joshua 3 & 4. The same God who guided Moses and Joshua is the very same God who guided our Founders and deferred to by JFK and President Trump. In the same time the Devil has worn a thousand faces…every single one of them a virtue signaling lie.
Virtue Signaling: Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values. Academically, the phrase relates to signalling theory and describes a subset of social behaviors that could be used to signal virtue…
I need you to think about something. The rule book I present to my grandchildren is pretty much the same as the one presented by my 4th great grandfather Andrew Murray to his. The “Progressive” modern-day Robespierre’s, on the other hand, are forced to explain a completely different rulebook to their grandchildren, one they themselves were never presented as children, and one where the rules are constantly changing. How do we not see that something has gone so terribly wrong?
Warning signs are flashing everywhere. Peggy Noonan writes about it here. Clues are everywhere…for those with eyes to see. And yet we find our selves lost in historically familiar territory where friends of the Devil are welcomed, and friends of truth are the hunted ones.
From Joshua 3:4…that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.
Would that we would quickly get rid of all we have, give it away till there is nothing left, then there is a chance for God to pour through in rivers for other people. ~ Oswald Chambers, Empty and Free
All of it would turn on a dime with a simple change of heart.
