The Battle for Truth – Part 2
Hello, and welcome to Raising God’s Army, where we are training Christian soldiers for spiritual battle. I am so glad you’re listening today because I am continuing my “Battle for Truth” series. Spiritual warfare comes in many different forms, but right now it’s a battle for truth, and it’s worldwide. On that note, we’re talking about politics and religion again this week. Now, there are a lot of people that think these two topics should never be together. They believe that freedom of religion means freedom from religion. Nothing could be further from the truth. Remember what I said last week – “Truth brings freedom, but evil seeks to control by deceit, fear, and shame.” Freedom of religion means that everyone has the right to believe and worship as they please, including the option to not believe or worship anything. This also means that everyone has the right to express their religious beliefs as they please. It is a win for everyone.Freedom from religion means people have the right to be free from having to hear or see anyone else’s expression of religion, which means that one person’s right to express their religion could be cancelled by someone else’s “right” to be free from hearing it. That is not a right, that is control. If one person must give up their religious freedom for another person because they don’t want to hear it, then freedom is compromised for all. (Sounds like Facebook and Twitter, doesn’t it?) Others believe church and state should never touch one another, using Thomas Jefferson’s reference to the separation of church and state as their foundation to divorce one’s personal religious values from any conversation about law or government. The problem is, that’s not what Thomas Jefferson was saying. He was talking specifically about the Church not being an entity of the Government. That is to say, the Government has no right to endorse or establish one religion over another. That is not to say that the religious beliefs of the citizens can’t influence government. As a representative government, we should fully expect our representatives to reflect our values, many of which are naturally tied to our religious beliefs. I believe the case is clear. I have the right to express my religion and the duty to speak the truth, especially as it relates to our government and the wickedness that has permeated every level. Let’s look at some of the latest assaults on truth. Just this week, Joe Biden released his budget proposal. Two things stand out above all else – 1) that he has not included the Hyde Amendment which keeps federal money from funding abortions, and 2) that man-made climate change is our highest priority for national security. Together, these topics reveal the struggle that Democrats have with truth. On one hand, you have this notion of “man-made climate change” which started out as “global warming.” They had to change what they call it because nature was not cooperating. You’ve heard the warnings for decades, and every time “doomsday” comes and goes without so much as an honorable mention…because it was based on fake science, not truth. One-by-one their “studies” have been debunked. In many cases the methodologies were not sound, and some even used fabricated data. In short, the idea of man-made climate change is a hoax, a lie. Nevertheless, those who dare to challenge or expose the lies are labeled as “science-deniers.” On the other hand, you have liberals pushing to make abortion as free and as frequent as humanly possible, even to the point where the Virginia legislature recently cheered the passing of a bill allowing babies to be aborted at any point of birth before the head emerges. I’m sure you all remember Governor Northam’s statement that if the unwanted baby did manage to live through the abortion attempt that they would keep it comfortable while the mother and doctor decide what to do with it. Saints, these people are actively sanctioning infanticide!! My question, beyond that of killing an average of 1.4 million babies a year since 1973, is, “What about the science?” At this point, in 2021, science has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that babies are individual human beings from the moment of conception. The baby has its own heartbeat at 3-6 weeks, which is why some states, Republican states, have enacted what they call “heartbeat laws.” These are laws banning abortions at any stage of fetal development after there is a detectable heartbeat. The science of life is undeniable. The baby is not part of the mother’s body, it is its own entity – a developing human. Who are the science deniers??? How about the idea that you can choose your gender? DNA science is clear. There are only two viable options, XY for males and XX for females. Yes, mutations do occur, but they are anomalies, not the norm and not a choice. The science of gender is irrefutable, yet liberals want to believe that you can choose your gender. Who are the science deniers??? So, the next time someone has the audacity to call you a science-denier because you refuse the accept the fake science of man-made climate change, turn it around on them. Don’t let them get away with it. Call them out! The science of fetal development and DNA are science fact, man-made climate change is science fiction. Truth, my friends, is absolute. Whether you believe the truth or not, it will remain the truth. There is no such thing as “my truth” or “your truth.” It changes for no one, and it brings freedom to all who choose it. Why am talking about this? Because Truth must be spoken so the people can be set free. How can any believer in Jesus Christ support things like abortion and same sex marriage when they are clearly forbidden in the scriptures? How can a Christian politician live in Christ while espousing policies that promote sin? How can the Bidens and Pelosi’s of the world speak of their “strong Catholic beliefs” while actively (and gleefully) pushing for laws that go against the teachings of the Church? Jesus said you cannot serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you hold to the one and despise the other (Matt 6:24). James 1:8 says a double minded man is unstable in all of his ways. Basically, any politician that supports legislation that goes against their claimed personal belief system lacks any form of integrity and cannot be trusted. The same is true for anyone, not just politicians. I used to work with a guy who would say, “Look, this is what I do, it’s not who I am.” Unfortunately, a large number of Christians act this way about their faith. Christianity is something they do, it’s not who they are. I reject that. My faith in Christ is not just something I believe. It is who I am. In fact, as Paul wrote to the Galatians, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” My faith is who I am. People say, Jesus was not interested in politics so neither should we. They point to where Jesus said, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.” (Matt 22:21) The truth is, this was not a moment of Christ saying that he was not interested in politics. This was where “religious leaders” sought to trip him up with a trick question, and Jesus wasn’t having it. Perceiving their intentions, he gave them an answer that totally astounded them. They left, knowing that they had just been beaten. Jesus’ mission was to bring spiritual salvation to man, not to free Israel from Roman rule. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t interested in politics; it just wasn’t his focus. Furthermore, Jesus was not in a position to choose who would represent him in government. In the United States of America, we are. The United States is a republic, where every citizen is represented by an elected official. We choose our representatives based on their espoused values, because we want to be represented by someone with a like mind. Unfortunately, many believers have forsaken their Christian values, fooled by the deception of the day which has become the Democratic platform. They have been lured in by the idea of helping the “less privileged”. They have allowed themselves to be indoctrinated by the lies of the left who have perverted the Gospel of Freedom to enslave the masses with their agenda of power and control. The left has taken the Christian model of community seen in the book of Acts and twisted it. They use deceit, fear, and shame to press the public into serving their agenda, which history shows doesn’t lift anyone out of poverty, but makes them even more dependent on the government, which is the exact opposite of what the scriptures teach. Remember…truth brings freedom. Let see what the Christian model of community really is. Acts 4:32-37 shows the true spirit of community. The people in the Church were of one heart and soul. They shared everything. Those who had a lot shared with those who had little. The scripture says, “neither was there any among them that lacked.” That is the Christian model of community. Socialists point to this and say, “See, even the Bible supports what we’re saying.” The key being that all of the giving was voluntary, not required. Look at Exodus 25:2 where God describes the kind of offering he wants. 2 “Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering.” God said that the offering had to be voluntary, not forced. That is the primary difference between the true model of Christian community versus the forced model of Democratic “social justice”. Unfortunately, a vast number of Christians don’t understand the difference, so they have bought into the Democratic agenda without question, selling their souls at the same time. Look at Christians that support today’s Democratic Platform of abortion, illegal immigration, class warfare, racial division, and more. You cannot serve to masters. You cannot have two sets of values. – Either you believe that all life is sacred (made by God) and follow the 5th commandment, “thou shall not kill”, or you support the killing of children in the womb. (An average of 1.4M/yr since 1973) Make no mistake, supporting abortion puts the blood of those children on your hands – even in the cases of rape, incest, or the health of the mother. Taking a life, is taking a life. https://www.christianpost.com/news/m-babies-aborted-in-2020-surpassing-leading-causes-of-death.html Abortion Statistics – Either you follow the scriptures where God said, “to obey is better than sacrifice…for rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft” (1 Samuel 15:22, 23), or you support the breaking of the law by allowing people to come into this country by illegal means.Have you not read the scriptures where God is clear on the borders of Israel? It is no different today. Countries must have borders, and laws must be followed. – Either you follow the principles taught by Jesus to not focus on earthly treasures (Matthew 6), and you follow the commandment to not covet your neighbor’s stuff (including wealth), or you follow the so called “social justice” platform which is purely based on the envy of someone else’s wealth.The scriptures teach that if you don’t work, you don’t eat. The Apostle Paul was abundantly clear that he would not rely on support from the church, even though it was within his right to ask for it. He supported himself while building churches. – Either you believe the scriptures that say that, in Christ there is not Greek or Jew, Scythian, Barbarian, or slave or free (Colossians 3:10-12), or you follow the “racial equity” lies that seek to define people by their race, color, and gender.The equality that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his life for, to be judged by the content of character, not color of skin, has been replaced by so-called equity which defines people by the color of their skin to allow the suppression of one color for the advancement of another. Again, truth brings freedom, whereas the wicked seek to control by deceit, division, fear, and shame. It is a battle like we have never seen before in the United States. Good versus Evil. Truth versus Lies. Freedom versus Oppression. Stand up, Christian soldier! Stand for truth and righteousness! Depend on The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit to guide you in truth, not politicians and government. Do not let the flowery words of the wicked blind you to the truth of their plan – dominance and control. Remember, truth brings freedom, but the wicked seek to control through fear, shame, and oppression. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!

The Battle for Truth
Hello and welcome to raising God’s army, where we’re training Christian soldiers for spiritual battle. And my friends, as always, the battle continues to rage. We are in the midst of spiritual warfare at a global level. It’s worldwide, and no one will go untouched. What we’re seeing right now in government, in the media, in Hollywood, and in social media, is a full court press, a full-throttled attack to suppress truth. Take a look! The wicked say you can choose your gender. I’ve heard people say there are up to 72 gender options! Wow!!Truth says God created male and female. Your gender is determined at conception. It’s not a choice. You can change the packaging however you want, and believe me, it is sick the things they can do today. But at the end of the day, the truth is in the DNA. It cannot be denied.The wicked say that anyone that disagrees with you is racist, or sexist, homophobic, or some other persecutor of some victim class of people defined by liberals.Truth says everyone is free to think or speak as they wish. No one has the right to silence another just because they don’t like what they hear. This whole concept of “hate speech” is a subjective tool of evil used by people to avoid having to think critically, or act with accountability because they can’t function in the realm of ideas. Scripture tells us that people who love deceptions are foolish, that when they hear the righteous speak the truth, they will be offended. You see, the enemy seeks to control through fear, shame, deceit, whatever it takes to keep people submissive. On the other hand, Jesus, who IS the truth, sets people free. “I am the way, the truth, and the light. No man comes to the Father but by me.” Truth brings freedom. Jesus said, “Whom the son has set free is free indeed!” He also said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” That’s why we are seeing such an over-the-top push to suppress any form of truth. It’s spiritual warfare. It’s a war against truth – truth about personal identity, truth about social norms, truth about the 2020 election, and even truth about COVID-19 and the so-called vaccines. Anyone who dares to declare the truth, just like I’m doing here, is labeled as unstable, or a conspiracy theorist, or a purveyor of misinformation. We see it every day. The cancel culture. Suppress the truth at all costs. Those who dare to speak the truth risk reputation, employment, relationships, and in some cases, even their personal health and safety. These principalities and powers, and their human followers will do anything to squash the truth so they can gain and maintain power over the masses through deception, fear, and oppression. So, when we put on truth as a belt around us, we clothe ourselves with Christ. Let us not be fearful of things that we hear in the media, or things that we see going on in the politics of the day, let us not be fearful. Because if we’re fearful, then we fall captive to the enemy, and the deceit, because the enemy controls with fear. With all of this in mind, I want to turn to two of the most important battles going on right now – the so-called COVID vaccines, and the 2020 election. If ever there was a campaign of deception and misinformation, it is around these two issues. First, let’s tackle this COVID shot that is being touted as a vaccine, then we’ll touch on the election. Now, for the record, I never planned to get “the shot” no matter who was president. I don’t get flu shots either, but the campaign that has been launched to “put shots in arms” is just a little too political for me. This entire COVID debacle has been political from the beginning. It has been used to control the whole of society through fear, and now that they have these so-called vaccines they are ramping up the shaming tactics. Classic liberal globalist tactics. I’ve recently had the opportunity to watch a webinar featuring 5 world-renowned doctors that are boldly stepping forward to spread the truth about these COVID shots, and the dangers associated with them that you will never hear in the mainstream media. The webinar is called “Critically Thinking with Dr. T and Dr. P – Episode 44 ‘Special Edition- Is THEIR shot putting YOU at Risk?’”. The doctors speaking are: Dr. Sherri TenpennyDr. Lawrence PalevskyDr. Carrie MadejDr. Lee MerrittDr. Christiane Northrup Each of these doctors are highly credentialed and well known in the world. In fact, as a way of introduction in the video, they’ve been asked to say a few words about their backgrounds to let us know why they are considered subject matter experts. I find it interesting that at least three of the five doctors describe this COVID shot business as a battle between good and evil. Why is that? It’s because everything about these shots is shrouded in deception and coercion. The general public has no idea what is in these so-called vaccines, and the dangers of getting this stuff injected into their bodies. The truth is hidden behind mostly manipulative politicians that seek to control the whole of our population by fear of getting sick, or shame for not blindly accepting this shot. Fortunately, the truth is coming out, and ultimately truth will prevail…but at what cost? The lie, or the deception, is that this shot that they’re giving people is a vaccine. It’s not a vaccine. A vaccine doesn’t do what this thing does. What this shot does is introduce man-made technology into your body in the form of nanotechnology. That’s right, the destructive nanobots you see in the G.I. Joe movies, it’s not science fiction anymore. It’s science fact. These shots contain microscopic computers call nanobots that are programmed to invade your cells to deliver a genetic code. This code literally programs your cells to start producing what’s called a spike-protein to block the COVID-19 virus. It’s important to note that this spike-protein is not a naturally occurring thing in nature. I don’t know about you, but I refuse to have this kind of technology placed in my bloodstream to invade my cells and fundamentally alter what God designed them to do. There are other questions raised by the technology in these shots. What turns the nanobots on, or more importantly, what turns them off? Most importantly, what else is this nanotechnology programmed to do, and who controls it? Naturally, just saying such things will get me labeled as a spreader of misinformation. I’ll be called a conspiracy theorist, a racist, or any number of other derogatory things, because that’s what the enemy does and their surprisingly good at it. If you can’t argue with the message, then you discredit the messenger. Silence the truth by “cancelling” the person who would dare speak it. Look at the many doctors around the world that are screaming the benefits of hydroxychloroquine. The deception is that the dangers far out weight the benefits. You’ve got fools like Fauci warning people against it, and the Democratic gestapo trying to punish any doctor who dares to heal people by using it. The truth is that hydroxychloroquine is an extremely successful medicine to treat those with COVID-19. The problem is, that truth could set the world free to go back to business as usual. The enemy can’t have that. Remember what I said. Truth brings freedom, but the wicked seek to control by fear, shame, and deception. Look around…you be the judge. Do you see freedom in this post-COVID world, or do you see poverty and bondage as people cower in fear praying for the government to save them? It’s spiritual warfare, my friends – a battle for truth. Will you join with me to awaken more people to the truth? I highly encourage you to watch that webinar. It’s available on Rumble.com. Look up “Critically Thinking”. It’ll be the April 23 episode, Episode 44. For those reading this on my blog site, you can go this link: Critically Thinking with Dr. T and Dr. P – Episode 44 “Special Edition- Is THEIR shot putting YOU at Risk?” (rumble.com) I think we all know that truth is suppressed by politicians as well. Let’s turn to the 2020 Election. The wicked say that Joe Biden won the 2020 election.Truth says that President Trump won by a landslide.The wicked cry voter suppression.Truth says election security. The wicked may appear to have won. At this moment, we have a Biden-Harris presidency and administration, or was that Harris-Biden, I get confused who is who. But seriously, they may be in office right now, but I promise you saints, that it is not going to last. There was a serious wrongdoing here by the wicked, and it is not going to stand. I don’t know what’s going to happen. I don’t know how or when, but in some way shape or form, President Trump will be back in charge. I fully believe it with all my heart that Donald Trump will be back in that president’s office sooner than 2024. The truth is, President Trump won 2020 by a landslide. There is evidence. Regardless of what you see and hear in the news, there is hard evidence. The Italian courts have the sworn affidavit of the guy…THE GUY…who changed the votes from Trump to Biden. The reason you aren’t hearing about it is because the truth is being suppressed by an unbelievably large network of the wicked. It’s worldwide, my friends, and includes politicians, judges, world leaders, etc. It’s a battle against the truth. Our politicians, judges, and media tell you there’s no evidence of all that. That’s a lie! That is a lie, a coordinated deception throughout all of the government entities and the media entities. There is proof. There is documentation, but it’s being suppressed. Just like on “The X-Files”, the truth is out there. I want to believe! I’m kidding, but the truth is out there. That’s why I’m speaking out today. What I’m speaking to you is the truth. It’s out there, but you need to do the look for it. You need to find the sources and see what’s happening out there. This is the real deal. Evidence shows that election machines were rigged. They were switching votes at by particular algorithm. For every vote cast a certain percentage of it went for Biden and a certain percentage went for Trump, and it was, of course, weighted toward the Democratic nominee because that’s how they roll. Numerous experts have revealed the Dominion Voting Systems algorithms. Look at Arizona. They are finding that up to 17.5% of the votes were not right somehow. Considering that Joe “won” by 0.4%…well, I’ll let you do the math. The man didn’t win! In Antrim County, MI, it was clearly stated back in November that, hey, there are 6000 votes that were switched to the Democratic nominee that were actually cast for the Republican nominee, so HELLO! The truth is out there, it’s just being suppressed. Don’t buy it when they say, “Nothing to see here.” Anytime you hear the government say that there’s nothing to see here, or anybody from the media say nothing to see here, well then you better look a little deeper because I guarantee you, they’re lying. If their mouths are moving, they’re lying. Speaking of truth, it continues to roll out. That’s why I say, truth will prevail. It cannot be suppressed forever. One particular person has revealed some major truths regarding the 2020 election switching of votes. Her name is Maria Zach. Maria Zach is the leader of a government watchdog group, Nations in Action. I listened to an interview that she gave in January 2021. It was very enlightening. I’ll give you the nutshell in this podcast, but I highly encourage you to look it up. You can find it on bitchute.com. called “Maria Zach – Italy Did It – US Election Fraud” (MARIA ZACH – ITALY DID IT – US ELECTION FRAUD (bitchute.com) ). Maria and her team have done the research into the 2020 election, and Obama. They uncovered proof that Obama funded the 2020 election fraud operation and learned that the Italian courts have a sworn affidavit from the guy that actually changed the votes on election night. My friends what Maria’s team found the truth and gave it to President Trump and his team. The problem is all of the wicked people that have successfully suppressed the truth, but that will end soon, and all will be revealed. What they found was there was a whole network of people working to get this 2020 election rig set up, and it all goes back to Obama and all the pallets of cash sent to Iran. They found the chain of custody for all of this money, and it all ended up in Italy to finance the election fraud activity. All of this backdoor stuff that was going on with these voting machines. You may think, if all of these facts are laid out then why isn’t it being investigated. Who’s going to investigate? Do you think a democratic led Congress is going to investigate? Do you think a democratic led Senate is going to investigate? Perhaps the FBI or the CIA previously led by people such as John Brennan and Jim Comey? The reach of the wicked is vast. If you’re waiting for any of these agencies or the Department of Justice or whoever, to pick up these facts and investigate them, well, I’m afraid you’re not going to see any fruit out of that. The politicians are wicked. The investigators are wicked, and some of the judges are wicked. They know what happened, and they’re darn sure glad that they’re in power now so they can keep these investigations from happening. So, here’s how it happened on election night. If you’ve watched OANN News, you may be aware of the smart people that have identified the algorithms within these Dominion voting machines. They’ve figured out the algorithm and how it assigned a portion of Trump votes to Biden. You can see it when you look at the states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Arizona. These are these five states where they stopped counting ballots in the middle of the night, at the same time in every state, everything stopped. And then a couple hours later, counting resumed and there were hundreds of thousands of ballots that mysteriously appeared – 95% of which were for Biden. The reason why the counting stopped in those five states at the same time, is because it was figured out that President Trump got so many votes, that it “broke” the algorithm that they had created to rig the vote. They didn’t expect President Trump to receive as many votes as he did. (It’s said that even California went for Trump!) That’s right. Even with the vote rigged, President Trump was winning at 2:00 am on election night. That’s why you see in all five of those states, all of a sudden at the same time, boom, it all stopped, because at that moment, all of the voting data was being sent overseas to this guy in Italy “fixed” the votes, then sent them back to the voting machines. All of this voting data was sent via satellite to Italy, where the guy had to rewrite everything, and then send it back to the voting machines via that same satellite to then fix the vote so Biden was still winning. That’s the truth. And this is truth that is testified to by the guy that did it. I don’t know if he’s still alive today saints I honestly don’t know. I hope he is. Again, you might think, “Well, why wouldn’t we hear about that if it’s happened?” Who is going to tell the story? There’s nobody in this government that’s willing to tell that story. There’s no interest in it. It’s all hogwash. Nothing to see here because they suppress the truth. This is the battle we’re in saints. It’s a battle for truth. You need to have your belt of truth on, and the rest of the armor. Clothe yourself with Christ and take the time to read what’s out there or listen to what’s out there. Don’t listen to the wicked wo say. “Ah, they’re just conspiracy theorists.” If you buy into that lie, then you’re sucked right in with everybody else. Find out what’s going to happen, what’s been happening with this election. If you’re paying attention, you’ll see that, even in the mainstream media, the truth has been coming out. I just heard today as a matter of fact, you know in Maricopa County, there’s a machine where the whole database was deleted. And then somewhere this really smart guy shows up and says, Oh hey, I got a copy of that if you need it. I don’t know if that’s exactly how it went down but that’s what’s going on, and man the Democrats are about to lay an egg, because the evidence that they thought that they had deleted is still available. And that’s happening everywhere saints. Take heart, it’s not just you. Seek out the people that understand the truth. Nothing else will set us free, but the truth. Share the truth with your friends and family. They may call you crazy. They may call you a conspiracy theorist. At least you shared the truth, and let God do the rest. As far as this vaccine, I wouldn’t do it. I won’t do it. Again, I urge you to listen to the webinar posted in this blog post. There are so many things about it that just aren’t right, and they’re causing problems. I know it sounds like science fiction, but it has now turned to science fact. And it’s going on today so saints, be careful. That’s my word today saints. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!

Promotion – Vaccines, Politics, and Religion
Saints, we’re at Day-33 of the Sword Training Challenge and we’re reading John 8:30-36. “31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’ 33 They answered him, ‘We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?’ 34 Jesus replied, ‘Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'” We are in the middle of spiritual warfare on a global scale. Right now there is a massive push by the enemy against truth. There is a campaign of deception around these vaccines that is reaching everywhere, but faint not. Righteousness WILL prevail! God has spoken it through his prophets, and even now the truth is breaking through – truth about the COVID vaccines, and truth about the 2020 election fraud. Tune in for next week’s podcast, “Vaccines, Politics, and Religion”. You won’t want to miss this! I will tackle these issues and show you just how they are tied to the spiritual battle for the soul of this nation, and the world. We are truly in a global battle between good and evil, and it’s high time believers realize it and join the fight. Join me next week, and until then, may the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!

Sword Training – Day 14
Today’s readings are Psalm 66-70 and Proverbs 14. The Psalms contain a verse that I have loved since I first read it 25 years ago. Psalm 68:19. “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.” Oh, how the Lord loves to heap blessings upon his children. He is our heavenly Father, after all. What father would give his child a stone when they ask for bread? Not God the Father. He told Israel, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then you shall call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken to you, and ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye search for me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13) That word applies to us today just as much as it did to Israel back then. That’s because as believers, we have been grafted into the vine, making us part of Israel by Jesus Christ who is in us. Jesus himself said, “ask and you shall receive.” It is God’s will and his pleasure to “daily load” his children with benefits as they seek his face. So seek him today. Search the scriptures for all of the verses about asking and receiving. There are several, but I won’t say where they are. The blessing will be greater as you search the scriptures for yourself. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you…he will. That’s my word for today, saints! May the Lord bless you and keep you!

He is Risen! … He is Risen, Indeed!
Happy Easter to all! Now is the time when we celebrate Jesus Christ’s victory over Death, Hell, and The Grave for our sake. The beauty of Christ’s resurrection is that it gives us newness of life and the hope of eternity with him in Heaven. He was the high priest and the sacrifice. The blood of bulls and goats covered the sins of Israel year after year, but those sacrifices were imperfect. Jesus, the Lamb of God, was the perfect sacrifice, covering the sins of everyone once-for-all. Paul said, “By his death we are forgiven, by his resurrection we are justified.” He died for our sins, and rose to give us eternal life. Oh what a wonderful savior! May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!Griff

The Joy That Was Set Before Him
Today is Good Friday, the day when we Christians take extra care to remember the passion of our Lord Jesus Christ and what he endured for us. The scriptures tell us that he was beaten beyond recognition (Isaiah 52:14). The soldiers whipped him mercilessly, spit in his face, and literally pulled the hair out of his beard (Isaiah 50:6-7). Placing a cloak on his body and a crown of thorns on his head, the soldiers mocked him, putting a reed in his hand like a scepter and bowing saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”. Then they beat him again before finally nailing him to the cross (Matthew 27:27-55). The fullness of his suffering (physically, spiritually, and emotionally) is more than we could ever fully comprehend. Jesus knew the suffering that he would face, and he was not looking forward to it (Matthew 26:39). He could have quit at any time, but he chose not to. So, what kept him motivated? How could he, knowing everything that he would endure on earth and in the spirit, stay the course like a lamb to the slaughter (Isaiah 53:7)? My friend, he was sustained by the hope of eternity with you and me. Hebrews 12:2 describes Jesus’ thinking saying, “Looking only at Jesus, the originator and perfecter of the faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” What was that “joy set before him”? That joy was/is the joy of spending eternity with you and me – eternal life with us in heaven. That’s what kept him motivated. That’s what got him through everything, not just the cross but all of his struggles in life. Hebrews 2:17-18 says, “Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brothers [us] so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.” We all face struggles in life – temptations, addictions, abuse from others, financial hardships, etc. It’s hard, and sometimes feels impossible. Literary principles describe 6 different types of conflict (conflict with self, others, society, nature, the supernatural, and/or technology). Personally, I’ve experienced all of them at some point (some of them at several points) in my life. Through it all, the most pertinent question has been, “How do you get through it?”. To that I say, follow the example of Christ. Keep your eyes on the hope of eternity with Christ in heaven. The struggles still come and they’re still hard, but keep your eyes on Jesus and let the joy of your future with him get you through – just as it helped him endure the cross. Jesus knows your struggles, personally. He can help you get through them. That’s his promise. That’s why he suffered everything…for you and me. May the Lord bless you and keep you on this Good Friday, my friend!Griff

Holy Week and Christ’s Sacrifice
Welcome to Holy Week, my friends! This is the week of Christ’s passion and the fulfilment of his calling to reconcile us to God through his death, burial, and resurrection. While we as Christians call it Holy Week, the Jewish community knows it better as Passover. Historically, this is the week where Israel remembers their deliverance from Egypt. This week included the Passover sacrifice and meal. Jesus became the sacrifice, and used the meal to institute what we call Communion today. God’s plan for our redemption was put in place at the moment when Adam sinned. Listen in to learn the how and the why of what Jesus did, and the history behind it. Just as the old hymn says, “Jesus paid it all.” His blood was spilled to cover our sin, so that we may have eternal life with him. My heart aches when I think about what Jesus endured for us…for me. The Gospels tell us that he was whipped, beaten, mocked, and reviled by the religious leaders. These men hated Jesus. They tried to trick him and trap him several times, but failed. Now was their chance to take out that hatred on him – and they did. Isaiah tells us that they punched him in the face, plucked out the hair of his beard, and spit on him. His visage was marred to the point where he was barely recognizable. All of this for me… Then, having been savagely beaten, they forced Jesus to carry the cross to the hill (Golgotha) where they would nail him to that cross. There came a moment on the cross where Jesus cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?!” This is the moment of his passion that hits me the hardest. In that moment, Jesus bore the weight of the world’s sin. He who knew no sin became sin for us. God the Father had to look away and Jesus was alone. Think about that for a minute. Jesus, part of the Holy Trinity – Father, Son, and Spirit. In all of eternity, these three are together. Even as a man, Jesus always had his connection to the Father, but in that moment he was truly alone. He was alone for that moment so that we never have to be. Remember Jesus’ promise. He will never leave us or forsake us. He made that promise, because he knows how it feels. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!Griff

What is your treasure?
Jesus said, “where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” He also said, “out the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” What am pointing out with these verses? Simply that if you want to know what someone treasures in their heart, then listen to how they speak. We can also evaluate ourselves by that same criteria. To be an effective soldier in the Army of the Lord, you have to know how to use the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. The trouble is, there are a lot of Christian soldiers that do not know the Word of God to the degree needed to be successful in battle. In Psalm 119, David lays out a few key principles:– Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way, by taking heed to the Word of God.– Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against God.– Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. This week I bring all of these scriptures together to demonstrate the importance of knowing the scriptures if we are to be successful on the battlefield. Enjoy! May the Lord bless you and keep you!Griff

Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Every believer is a part of the body of Christ and has received gifts from Christ through the Holy Spirit in accordance with His will. These gifts are not for the individual, but for the edification of the Body. I need your giftings and you need mine. This is how we bond together in faith and unity. The Apostle Paul said this to the Ephesians: Ephesians 4:7-167 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. 8 This is why it says:“When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.”9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[c]? 10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. Paul also spoke of the gifts to the Corinthians. 1 Corinthians 12:4-264 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, 24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Let us commit to using the gifts that the Lord has given us to build up the Body of Christ, that we may grow together in faith and unity. May the Lord bless you and keep you!Griff

“If today you hear His voice, harden not your heart.”
Psalm 95 encourages us, “Today if you will hear his voice, harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness.” This is a specific reference to Israel when they were delivered from captivity in Egypt and led to the Promised Land. Once out of Egypt and across the Red Sea, God assigned an angel to lead the Israelites to the Promised Land. All that they had to do was follow the angel’s instructions and they would have been in “the land” within a year or two, living the good life in the blessing of the Lord. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened. Instead, they complained every chance that they had, and worse, they created an idol and attributed the works of God to it. For their wickedness, they wandered in the desert for 40 years. God declared that the faithless people would not enter in His rest. Only when that generation died off was Israel allowed to enter the Promised Land. The psalmist exhorts God’s people to learn from Israel’s terrible example. The writer of Hebrews quotes Psalm 95 as an encouragement to Christians to stay faithful to God. He is quite clear that, as believers, we must stay true to the faith. Do not be seduced by lying spirits that use lies and half-truths to draw God’s people from Him. We must properly discern the truth. How do we discern the truth? By wielding the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God. This week we look at the parallels between the deliverance of Israel from Egypt to the Promised Land, and the impending deliverance of the United States of America from the wickedness that has taken root in government. I’ve said before that I believe we will see a Red Sea level deliverance event. Just like Israel, the time is takes for us to go from the land of oppression to the land of promise depends on the faith of the believers. Stay strong. Do not waver. Trust God. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!Griff

Righteousness Through Faith
Without faith it is impossible to please God. Period. That’s what the writer of Hebrews tells us in chapter 11, then he goes on to describe the faith of the saints who have gone before us. He describes the faith of Able, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, and many more. These are people, like you and me, that made the deliberate choice to believe God’s promises are true – even when those promises sound impossible. They had faith in God, and it was counted to them as righteousness. Today is no different for us as believers. We have heard the word of the Lord and how righteousness WILL prevail, but it seems so impossible. It appears as if the wicked have prospered once again, leaving us helpless to watch as they destroy everything this nation was founded on. Don’t believe it! We walk by faith, not by sight.– By faith Noah built the ark to save the righteous from rain that had never been seen before.– By faith Abraham traveled to a land he had never seen before.– By faith Moses led Israel through the Red Sea walking on dry land (impossible!!)– BY FAITH, THE UNITED STATES WILL THRIVE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AS THE WICKEDNESS IN GOVERNMENT IS REVEALED AND REMOVED BY HAND OF GOD. Have faith in God, and when you start to waver, read the scriptures. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17) Read the Word, speak the Word, pray the Word. The more time you spend with God, the greater your faith will be. Let us encourage each other singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Be strong, and may the Lord bless you and keep you!Griff

The Authority of the Believer
“6As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him; 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10And you are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.” – Colossians 2:6-10 My fellow believers, we need to learn to walk in the authority of Christ, just as the Apostle Paul did. God has given us the Holy Spirit, the same Spirit that is in Christ. As we are obedient to walk with Him and follow His ways, then we too can walk in His authority. Today’s podcast walks a mile in Saint Paul’s shoes, introduces you to a more contemporary believer whom God used mightily, and encourages you to boldly step into the authority of Christ that we have been called to use. We can do it, if we remain in Him. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!Griff

Listen and Believe!
“He that hears, let him hear…” These are the words used by Ezekiel when delivering the Word of the Lord to Israel and I say to you now, listen to the prophets that have been called by God and believe that the words they deliver are true. Do not let evil plant the seeds of doubt in your hearts. Listen to God, trust God, and believe that this day where the wicked celebrate their evil deeds will come to a very quick end. Since January 20th, I have heard many believers trying to justify what they are seeing. It appears that wickedness has prevailed and that we are headed for dark times. The have said, – “Maybe we didn’t actually hear God.”– “America is being judged for turning its back on God.”– “America was trusting in the plans of men instead of trusting in God.”– “The whole hope of God rooting out the wickedness in Government was a distraction to keep Conservatives from taking action.” All of these things are lies from the pit of Hell. The fact is that this is a time of spiritual warfare on a global scale. The tenth chapter in the book of Daniel gives a picture of what this looks like. Daniel was fasting and praying for three weeks. When the Angel of the Lord approached Daniel after three weeks of prayer, he explains that his prayer had been heard when he first prayed it. However, because of a battle with the Prince of Persia (an evil angel), he was delayed until Michael (archangel and a chief prince) came to relieve him. You see, even battles in the heavenlies can take time. Spiritual warfare is real and sometimes it takes time to see the answer to prayer. This week I am highlighting the Word of the Lord as it has been spoken by three different prophets. Each of these confirm the things I have been sharing for weeks regarding President Trump’s anointing and the deliverance of America in a Red Sea level event that is coming very soon. The scriptures say that two or more witnesses establish a thing. Let this be established: Righteousness will prevail. Trump will be President for the next four years. Wickedness will be revealed and judged. The following prophetic words are included in this week’s podcast, and the links to them as posted on WeLoveTrump.com are below. Listen and believe.

Trust God! We are going through!
Just as God delivered Israel from Egypt, he WILL deliver the United States of America from the wicked cabal that seeks to destroy it. It’s going to be a Red Sea level event, and it’s about to happen. The most important question is, “Are you ready for what comes next?” Deliverance is not the end, it is just the beginning of our journey to the “Promised Land”. The Church must be ready to cross the desert and clear out the wicked that inhabit the land. Only this time let’s trust God and stay faithful. We don’t want to wander for 40-years. I know time is passing. Saints and patriots are starting to get nervous. Stay strong friends. God has promised that the wicked will not prevail. We’ve prayed it in faith, and God’s promise is true. He will deliver. In addition to our faith, he has spoken it through his prophets. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends.Griff

Politics & Religion
There’s a lot going on right now. We’re getting “intel” from a lot of sources, but not seeing anything happening. Have faith. Pray, and don’t worry. Let the peace of God that passes all understanding guard your hearts and minds. I know it’s hard, and that’s okay. Look at the man that brought his possessed son to Jesus. He said “if” you can, please heal my son. Was he doubting Jesus’ power? Not at all! Indeed, he had the faith to ask! He said “if” because he had just watched all of the disciples fail, so naturally he was wavering a little when he went to Jesus…but he still went. He had faith, even though he was a little worried. The same is true for us today. The closer we get to January 20th, the more we feel “concerned”. It’s natural. It’s human. It does not mean that we do not have faith or are doubting. Hold the line. You are in good company. Think about those that have gone before, and the dark moments they lived through…but God brought them through it. (Moses, Joseph, Daniel, Shadrach/Meshach/Abednego, even Paul). Hebrews 11 (the faith hall of fame) gives several examples of the faithful. As you press forward believing that righteousness will prevail, you are in good company.Finally, trust God, not “the plan”. Q and the plan may or may not be true – I don’t know. If they are, then they are tools used by God. Put your faith in the Creator, not the tools he uses. Have faith. Trust God. Righteousness will prevail and Trump will be our President for the next four years! May the Lord bless you and keep you!Griff

Time for Battle
Hello saints! Apologies for the delayed release, but there is so much going on right now that I wanted to make sure I captured as much information as I could before sending this out. It’s getting hot in D.C. My prayers go out to all of those converging on the capital to support our republic, our president, and our constitution. As I’ve said many times before, this truly is a battle of good and evil for the soul of the nation, but take heart my friends. Righteousness WILL prevail. I stand in faith with millions of Christians around the nation and the world as we pray and believe that President Trump WILL be the president for the next four years. Jesus said we have only to ask, in faith, and we will receive. If Jesus said it, if our Bible says it, then it is so. The battle we see in the politics of the day is only a shadow of the spiritual battle in the heavens. I’ve noted before that the book of Daniel (chapters 10 and 12) confirms that there are spiritual battles at the national level. The scriptures reveal that the Arch Angel Michael, “one of the chief princes”, is the Prince, or principality, over Israel. We also see that there was a Prince over Persia (clearly and evil principality since Michael was warring against him.) So, the battle is real and it is raging over America. I do not know the name of the heavenly prince over America, but I know there is one and he is leading God’s people by the power of God to victory over this wicked and perverse generation. America IS a Christian nation. It was founded by believers with a constitution that is based on Christian principles, and while we’ve allowed wickedness to creep in, it will not prevail. America is a beacon of light and freedom to the world and will continue to do so. We will continue to be the shining city on a hill, shining with the light of the glory of God and His righteousness. Hold on saints, because this week God is revealing his righteousness to the world through the United States of America. Stay strong in faith and pray as Daniel prayed because it’s going down! God bless you, my friends!Griff

Don’t Stop Believing!! #Trump2020
Hello, my friends! I pray that you had a good Christmas celebrating the birth of our Lord. My podcast will be back on January 4th, 2021, but in the meantime I’d like to share these encouraging thoughts. It’s been a tough 2 months since Election Night. We’ve learned that government corruption is wider and deeper than we knew. Bill Barr managed to gain the trust of conservatives, while covertly protecting the swamp. The Supreme Court has forsaken the Constitution, and the Chief Justice is compromised. I could go on and on, but you’ve seen what I’ve seen. It doesn’t look good, but take heart because we walk by faith, not by sight. In the Bible, God tells us, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7 I love these verses. God is telling us to make our requests known to Him, and having done that to trust that he will answer those requests. Do you think God doesn’t already know our requests before we make them? Of course he does, but he requires us to express our faith by making the request. It is our faith that moves God. Look at the many instances where Jesus healed people like the woman that touched the hem of his garment. He said, “your faith has healed you.” Clearly we know that she was healed by the power of God, but her faith was the catalyst. Without her faith, she would not have been healed. The same is true for us today. We must express our faith by making the requests. Jesus told the disciples, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.” (Matthew 21:22) Of course, we know that there are some governing principles. James wrote, “You ask, and receive not, because you ask amiss that you may consume it upon your lusts.” (James 4:3) However, praying for #Trump2020 is a righteous prayer. Finally, the verses say “the peace of God that passes all comprehension will guard our hearts and minds“. What does that mean? Well remember, we walk by faith, not by sight. The peace of God brought about by our faith is beyond the comprehension of the world. When we declare that President Trump WILL be president for four more years, people around us say, “How can you believe that! Can’t you see what is going on?” They base their understanding on what they see. As believers, we know that all things are possible with God. That’s why Peter wrote, “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you.” (1 Peter 3:15) The world sees our faith, but they can’t understand it because “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen“, as we are told in Hebrews 11:1. Our faith that God will answer our prayer for the nation by giving Trump the victory IS the evidence that it WILL happen. Why? Because God said to make your request known to Him and He will take care of it as long as we pray believing. The Take-AwayDon’t worry about anything, and pay no attention to what you “see”.Pray, asking God for President Trump’s 2020 victory and 2nd Term.Have faith that what you have asked will be done by the Father.The peace of God will guard your heart and mind. Take time to pray today. Make your requests for Trump’s victory known to God. It doesn’t have to be a flowery or lengthy prayer, just a simple conversation with God. Ask it in the name of Jesus, our intercessor, and it will be done by the Father. That is the promise of God. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!Griff

Put on the Whole Armor of God (Pt. 2)
Episode 8 of the Armor of God series focused on putting off the “old man” in preparation for putting on the Armor of God. This episode is part two of the message, focused on renewing the mind and putting on the “new man” patterned after God. The U.S. Army taught me that you train as you fight. If you train sloppily, you will fight sloppily. If we do not take time to renew our minds in Christ, then we will not be able to stand in spiritual battle. Renewing our minds through prayer and relationship with Christ is the key to success. Once renewed in the mind, we can confidently don the “new man” which is Christ. Paul tells us to clothe ourselves with Christ, which is precisely what we are doing when we put on the Whole Armor of God. May the Lord bless you and keep you!Griff

Put on the Whole Armor of God (Pt. 1)
For the last seven weeks we have learned about the individual pieces of the Armor of God as described by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:10-18. We’ve also learned how to identify our spiritual enemies whether they be demons, our own flesh, of just plain old deceptive teachings coming from false teachers and prophets. The week we wrap up the whole series by learning how to put off the old man, renew our minds, and put on the new man which is patterned after God. To cover everything in this week, I have a bonus 2-episode release. This episode, Episode 8, focuses on putting off the old man. I take you through the scriptures to see exactly who the “old man” is, and exactly how and why we have to cast him off. There are some very deep and interesting points described in this episode, so tune in and enjoy! May the Lord bless you and keep you!Griff

The Sword of the Spirit
David wrote, “Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.” Psalm 119:11 Why is it so important to have the Word of God in your heart? Because you need it to fight against temptations. God’s word is powerful. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit. (Hebrews 4:12) With it you can defeat the devil and all temptations of the flesh, if used properly. When I was in the U.S. Army, we were taught to “train as you fight”. That meant however you fight during training, that’s how you will fight on the battlefield. There is no time to recall how the training manual said to do it. If you trained poorly, you will fight poorly and lose. On the other hand, if you trained properly, you will fight well and win. When Jesus was tempted by the Devil, he quoted scriptures to overcome those temptations. How much more so should be use the scriptures to overcome temptation or the Devil! That means we need to, just as David did, have the Word of God in our heart. We’ve got to read the Bible regularly to stand firm in our faith. We’ve got to memorize scriptures so we are always ready to us the Sword of the Spirit, and we’ve got to have a relationship with the Lord to walk in his power in the Spirit. Listen to this week’s podcast on the Sword of the Spirit, and prepare to win the battle. May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends.Griff
