Warning Against the Great Reset

If you haven’t heard of the great reset, it is what all the globalists are now talking about. It is all about global currency and global government, and is connected to the world economic forum. It is what Biden and Harris are pushing. They say that covid-19 has now provided this opportunity. Thus, it is a chance to reset everything. Reset what? Well, surprisingly, it is to reset to socialism and communism.

If that surprises you, listen to what Kamala Harris has said. She wants everyone to end up at the same place. Listen. She didn’t say that she wants everyone to get the same opportunity; she wants everyone to end up having the same amount of money. That’s communism! That’s total government control!

Let me back up. I’ve been listening to Curtis Bower. He seems to know what he is talking about. Here are some sketchy notes that will answer the question, what is going on today in America?

  • We are now experiencing a top-down revolution, backed by communist groups; rather, Democrat controlled communist groups.
  • We are experiencing an engineered coup where those who co-operate are termed useful idiots—like BLM, Antifa, and Biden.
  • Top Democrats are saying things like, “We have to burn down the Republican party.” Clearly many of the Dem’s want only one party—a Democrat party.
  • Big business is funding the Dem’s.
  • Big business and Democrats and Marxists are teaching our children to hate America.
  • Trump and his prosperity have been a disaster to the left, because the way they get power is to create chaos so they will have something to sell.
  • Everything (I mean everything) the Dem’s do is for an evil purpose, because they have been sold into communism.
  • Biden. Biden is one of those useful idiots. He is being used by the Dem’s to push the communist evil agenda. Biden cares only for himself and his family. He cares nothing about America and for what is right.
  • Fox news. There are a few good one in Fox news. But as of today, 90% of Fox have gone to the evil side, socialism and communism.
  • The press. One of the goals of communism is to influence the press. And they have done it!
  • The church. Communism is now out to shut down the church. They have recently been doing it, thanks to Covid-19. The communists are now praising Covid-19 and all the governors who have led the way.
  • The communists, who are now controlling the Dems, are seeking the destruction of western values—like the family and the church.

What must Christians do?

  1. Christians must stand tall for the truth and righteousness.
  2. Christians need to become involved more in government leadership in order to influence government.
  3. Christians need to have hope that in the end they will be victorious, even if the nation falls.
  4. Pray. Pray for the President and your governor to do the right thing. And pray for yourself and all Christians to be strong in the faith and believe God.
  5. Christians need to keep their ears open to the truth. We no longer can get the truth from Fox news, but there are many other reliable news sources. Here are a few:

Walking Beside the River

I always choose the most treacherous path, because to me its the most adventurous.

There is a wider trail just a few yards over to the right where most people walk. But for most of the way I choose “the narrow way.”

You have to be always alert to choose this path, and sure footed. It’s a dangerous road–like the world we live in. We musty be always on the alert for danger!!

The river is the great Mississippi. It is November the 28th, two days after Thanksgiving. Today it is 50 degrees, very warm for Minnesota. This will be maybe my last warm outing of 2020.

I come to the end of my walk. I will walk across that bridge over the river and looking down on the dam.

Muskrat Haven

There’s a small lake near my apartment that now seems to be invaded by these giant rats called muskrats.

Just a few years ago you had to really hunt for them. But now they are all over the place.

I’m sure they love the lake. It’s their haven.

There are many mallard ducks there too.

This time of the year, in the fall, they seem to like to show themselves. You see them swimming, and you also see them sitting on the newly frozen ice. They are always chewing on something they find in the murky water.

Thanksgiving: Not Just A “Turkey Day”

I have noticed how many have been calling this day a “turkey day.”  I wish we could get away from that. Thanksgiving is to be a day to give thanksgiving to God. Though we are thankful to many people, ultimately, it all comes from God. In George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation, notice how he gives thanksgiving to Almighty God, and also to the great and glorious Being, and to the Lord and Ruler of Nations.

 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

By the President of the United States of America. a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

God Will Rescue the Godly and Punish the Wicked – 2 Peter 2:1-9

This passage (2 Peter 2:1-9, at the end) has brought me great comfort in these evil times, knowing that God will rescue and comfort me, but that He will not allow the wicked to go unpunished!

For the last few years, since I have been more tuned in to political things, and paying more attention to what is happening in the world, and particularly in America, I have been grieved and distressed by all the evil going on. It seems like the entire democrat party was, and is, out to get the President with a variety of unjust practices, including an unjust impeachment. Such hatred and lawlessness and lying—particularly by Adam Shift, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Jerry Nadler. And such underhandedness and corruption and evil scheming by the former president Barack Obama, and also by the Clintons. Then we have seen the continual attacks by Antifa and BLM and all that they stand for: their supporting of homosexuality and queers and transgender folks, and their attacks against the traditional family and against the police.

And now, in just the last few days we have seen an election falsified, and the entire democrat party and all the media will not admit to it. And this for me is the most egregious, because if it isn’t corrected, we could see America fall in no time at all. With what we see now in the Democrat party, how evil it has become, in no time at all we will lose our constitution to liberalism; and lawlessness and homosexuality will be what is normal. Hence, all that was good about America will be gone. Rioting, lawlessness and lasciviousness will take its place. It will be just like the ancient world before the flood and like Sodom and Gomorrah.

But after reading 2 Peter 2:1-9, I feel so much better. This passage gives me perspective and assures me with comfort that He will save me out of it all, and will keep all the unrighteous ones like prisoners, awaiting their final eternal prison. Yes, this passage reminds us of how God did not spare the fallen angels, or the evil ancient world, but destroyed all of them, except Noah and his family in the great flood. And then later He destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and turned them into heaps of ashes. Thus, He made an example of what will happen to ungodly people.

My contentment and comfort now is realizing that just as God rescued Lot out of Sodom, and how at the same time He rightly judged the evil ones, He will surely do the same for America. He will comfort the righteous and will bring His righteous judgment on all who are evil—on all those that I have been grieved over. Yes, none of those who plotted evil will get away with it. Their punishment awaits them!!

Here is the passage I have been talking about:

2 Peter 2:1-9

 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; 3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly thereafter; 7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men 8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day with their lawless deeds), 9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment.

Voter Fraud by Dominion Software

You may have heard about this software, as I recently had. I heard just sketchy info about how votes were flipped from one candidate to another. Just today Sidney Powell, a White House attorney, laid it out for us at a briefing. I will present it in five points.

1. Created in Venezuela. About the time that Hugo Chavez came to power in Venezuela, he had this Dominion software made for him to ensure that he would never loose an election. Apparently, he didn’t think he would ever win an election without cheating.

I’m not sure who actually made the software, but we know that it has also been used in Cuba and China—Communist countries that will always cheat to win control of their people. And I’m not sure how exactly it was brought to this country, but I heard the names to George Soros and also the Clintons. But I’m sure others with big money had a part in purchasing it.

2. How it was discovered. Like I said, it has been around since Chavez came to power, but it was discovered that we had it in this country just recently in this election. It was discovered when the voting machines broke down due to the fact that there were so many Trump votes and the algorithms didn’t know how to handle it. So, they had to shut down the machines and back feed them. Well, as it happened, a “strong witness” saw what was happening and he knew by experience what was going on. He testified that he was with Hugo Chavez when the Dominion was explained to him, and so he knew firsthand how it worked and what its purpose was.

3. Features of the Dominion.  There are two main features: 1) It has the ability to flip a percentage of votes from one candidate to another. Apparently when Trump would have too many votes for their liking, they would just push a computer key and transfer some of those votes to Biden. 2) Another way is to just drag and drop votes. Any amount to votes could be dragged and dropped from one candidate to another, or just dropped in the trash. A good operator could do just about whatever he or she wants to do. But you have to be careful not to make it obvious what you were up to. And apparently, many mistakes were made that way when the same amount of votes magically appeared more than once for Biden.

4. Dominion software is hard to find. Just like a convict on the run from the law, Dominion moves around a lot and changes its name to hide it.

5. Who has used it? It has been used for about the last ten years in about 30 states in this country! It has also been used in many other countries. But it isn’t cheap. It has a very high price tag. It is sold to the highest bidder to who ever wants to ensure their election.

This story is shocking news. And this software is just one part of the voter fraud. There are many other ways that fraud was committed.  Many will not believe it. Of course, most Democrats will say we are just making this up to try to prevent a Biden Presidency. But the most shocking news is that apparently so many Democrats knew what was going on, and in fact planned it to insure a Biden win—much like Hugo Chavez did. It is so hard to believe what has happened. So unpatriotic! So evil!

The Sins We Commit in Prayer – Matthew 6:5-8

In Matthew 6:1-4 Jesus taught us how not to practice our righteousness, mainly in terms of our giving to the poor. Then in verses 5-8, He tells us how not to practice our prayers. He said,

“When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.  6 “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.  8 “So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

From this passage we may identify two sins while going to prayer, or even in prayer. The first is that we may pray to be known and seen by others. We can call this sin…

1. Putting the Focus on Self When We Pray

So, first of all, when you hypocrites pray you are anxious to be known by others as being a great prayer warrior, or a holy man of prayer. Perhaps in your prayer group you get pleasure knowing that people think of you as a person of prayer. And so, thinking that they may regard you that way, you do everything possible to support their thoughts. Thus, you are quick to be the first to pray, and you will pray extra loud so that they can hear you.

But not only is the prayer-hypocrite anxious to be known by others as a person of prayer, he also wants to be seen as a man or woman of prayer. So, you may position yourself to be seen praying. Do you have a prayer room in your church? Do you enjoy having people see you go into the prayer room?

Prayer should not be that way. Prayer, Jesus said, is to God only. It is not for the eyes and ears of others. We should work on not being conscience of each other’s praying—that is, how they pray. Rather, when we pray, we should be carried on the wings of prayer so that we are always thinking on God.

The second sin we often commit in prayer is…

2. Thinking Too Much on The Form and Length of Time We Pray

We think that we will be heard for our beautiful words of prayer. You may think of this as “vain repetitions.” Perhaps you have heard of the terms “counting beads,” or “prayer wheels,” or “walking a labyrinth.” And many take great pride in repeating prayers over and over, thinking that this impresses God or others, or even yourself.

In all of what is said here, it is all the sin of self and pride—even in prayer. It is the sin of self-worship and self-adulation. When we try to worship God in our pride, we are actually worshipping self. Now we know that the best picture of man is to look at him on his knees waiting upon God. But even in that picture man sins if he thinks about himself as performing a holy act before God. Hence, sin is something that follows us into the presence of God.

So, when you pray try to shut out and forget yourself or what other are thinking about you.  Instead realize that you are in the presence of God and that He is listening to you and wants to meet your needs. Realize that He knows all your needs already and He desires to give you what you ask for.
