Struggling with Prayer

On this day, after the forty-sixth Presidential inauguration, when the country, according to the media, finally is at peace and at rest and unified, there are some of us (me) who are not at rest and struggling. Though the world says peace and safety at last, I know differently. Though the newspapers and the TV media are smiling and showing a sigh of relief, I am tense and on guard. All is really not going well, and won’t go well. The left is planning war against us Christians. They are scheming against us. And the devil is taking advantage of our unrest. He is and will come against us to destroy us so that we will not rise again. What can be done?

I have been blogging on the Lord’s Prayer, and so, I think this is a good time to put it all together and really try to better my own prayer habits from that Lord’s-Prayer-outline. I, and we all need more and better prayer at this time. If you have been following my blog posts on this prayer, we have pointed out that there is an invocation, “Our Father in Heaven”; then six petitions. The first three have to do with prayer for the glory of God; and then the next three have to do with our own needs.

The struggle for me is how to use this prayer outline in my own prayers. If I pray according to my own feelings and inclinations, I probably won’t use the outline at all; I will just tell God how I feel. If I do that, His prayer outline becomes useless. But if I force myself to use the outline, then my prayers usually become mechanical and sometimes without much heart. So, what do I do? I have to tell you that I haven’t completely figured it out yet. But I have some ideas that I am now thinking about, that I think will allow my prayer to get better. So here are my ideas.

My goal will be to use the Lord’s Prayer outline as a guide and yet to find a way to pray with my heart in it—so that His prayer outline will also be my outline, and also that I will be praying with my own heart.

The first thing that I think will be very helpful is to write out my prayers using the Lord’s prayer as a guide, and to try to write as much as I can. I will have the goal of writing a seven-page prayer with each page under the heading of one of the Lord’s Prayer points. So, on page one I will write on “Our Father.” Then on page two I will write on “Hallowed be Thy name,” and so on. And to make it less mechanical, I will really work on getting smooth transitions from page to page. Maybe on some days, when I have more time, I will try to write two pages per outline point, making it a fourteen-page prayer. I will continue this prayer writing exercise for many days, maybe for a few months.

Next, when I feel that I have mastered the writing, I will try to pray just in my thoughts without writing it out. And each time I do it, I will try to pray with my heart and all the while asking Him to help me pray.

As I think on these ideas, I am so aware that prayer is a struggle and hard work. It is hard to pray correctly and hard to train my mind to be attentive to Him. This is so much of what prayer is—being attentive to Him. It will also be challenging to get everything to fit where it belongs; that is, where in the prayer outline do I confess sins, and where do I pray for friends, and so many other things. These are things that need to be worked out in the prayer writing; and then hopefully, when I graduate from the writing, I will have it figured out—so that in the end I will know how to pray to the Father appropriately and with praise.

In all that I have written here I am mainly talking about your private prayers. Public prayer may be similar, but not as long. I think public prayers should always be short, as not to appear prideful, and also to allow others to pray.

The Capitol Tragedy: A Planned Coup by the Left

I heard the most interesting and revealing interview of Michele Bachmann the other day regarding what happened on January 6th at the Capitol. I’m not 100% convinced of everything she claims, but it seems to make sense to me, and I think it needs further investigation. I organized my notes in 10 points.

Michele Bachmann on the Scene

Michele Bachmann, a former Minnesota Congress woman and a 2012 presidential candidate, was on the scene at the Trump Rally and also in the Capitol. She came to pray and to speak to a few high-ranking government leaders (like Mike Pompeo). While she was in the capitol the riots started, and she said she was so surprised to hear some people say that it was Trump supporters that were the rioters.  According to what she had observed, Trump supporters were “the nicest people.” Many of them came mainly to pray. What she experienced among Trump supporters was an atmosphere of happiness; “like a happy family reunion.” She said, there were no unhappy or mad people; no shouting or swearing.

Rioters were a Professional Group

Bachmann said, the agitators that stormed into the Capitol were not Trump Supporters. They were professional people; the same people who showed up at Minneapolis and Portland to riot.

Identity Theft by Imposters

The premise of the left and the media (and now most people) is that Trump followers, especially Christians, did the rioting. But it was imposters, according to Bachmann, that put on Trump clothing that did the rioting. She said (and I agree) that it is a case of “identity theft.” They stole President Trump’s identity and his follower’s identity. They made them to look like terrorists. But none of that is true. The media, even Fox News, gave a false narrative. Bachmann said, “What they were saying was not what I observed.”

Some Good People Were Swept Up in The Excitement

Bachmann said that besides the destructive and violent agitators, there were also a few good people who came to the Trump rally that got swept into what was happening. They actually went into the Capitol but did not do violence. This was the testimony of one man who said that he went into the capitol but tried to be respectful.

Weeping Trump Supporters

Bachmann witnessed that there were some Trump supporters that were weeping. They were there mainly for the purpose of prayer and fasting for America, and they suddenly were realizing that they were being used. Their identity was being stolen just as their votes were stolen.

A Planned Coup

Leading up to the tragic events, there was nothing but prayer and peacefulness. Then suddenly, out of nowhere, a group of agitators stormed toward the Capitol and broke in. In Bachman’s opinion, it was a planned coup. And there seems to be evidence to prove it: 1) The agitators in some places were let into the Capitol, by Capitol police, and were not stopped. They did nothing to stop them. 2) They even opened the gates to let them in (very odd). 3) They knew how to get to Pelosi’s office. Bachman testified that it is very hard to find places in the Capitol if you have never been there before. It seems obvious that they had it all mapped out. 4) It seems apparent that the agitators had been planning this and that they had help from some people (on the left) who knew their way around.

Purpose of the Coup

It is apparent to me that the left is desperate to try to discourage conservatives to be involved with Trump and in politics. Some supporters are being told by others, “Will you now renounce Trump.” Also, I think the left has been given a poor image because of the riots in Minneapolis and Portland and other cities. And so, this attempt at identity theft is what they dreamt up to even the score—to make conservative Christians look bad. How sad is that?

The Hypocrisy of the Left

The left described the terrible riots in Minneapolis and Portland as “peaceful protests.” But now that conservatives are blamed for what happed at the Capitol, everything is reversed. Nothing was peaceful. And all Trump supporters are now being blamed by the media for the riots—all 75 million of us.

What is Ahead for the Country? None of it is Good.

  • A one-party rule—Democrats
  • Persecution of Christians and conservatives; and a loss of our freedoms
  • An economy that won’t work
  • More taxes
  • Fewer jobs
  • Inflation
  • More viruses and vaccines
  • More of the LGTB agenda
  • An anti-Israel agenda and a return to Iran deal
  • We will probably never have a legitimate election again
  • We are fast headed for a global government: the great reset, etc.

A Word of Encouragement for Christians

Cling to the word of God and be filled with His Spirit. Speak the truth and walk in the truth. We need to find outlets that tell us the truth. Look up and eagerly wait for His coming!

What To Do If You Are Arrested For Being A Conservative Christian?

Since January 6th, since all of the blame for the Capitol break-in was put on Trump followers, we can anticipate a crackdown on all trump followers—many of which are Christians.

If you have listened to the media, especially the left-wing media, you will hear that they are blaming all Trump followers (who are conservatives) for not only the break-in at the Capitol, but for many other things. Yes, we will be blamed for many things, and arrested.

We have already experienced the take-down of Parler, which is a conservative social media company. Hence, conservatives have been stripped of their freedom of speech just because they are conservative, and because they are getting in the way of the left-wing global agenda.

Believe me, it will get worse and worse. The Bible promises it (read 2 Timothy 3:13).

What should we do when we are wrongly arrested and persecuted? How should we act? The Bible tells us exactly what to do, and it insures us of a blessed hope even in persecution.

What to do?

1. We should rejoice and be glad.

Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you (Matthew 5:12).

2. We should love and pray for our persecutors.

But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you 45 in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous (Matt. 5:44-45).

3. We should not worry about what to say in our defense.

But when they deliver you up, do not become anxious about how or what you will speak; for it shall be given you in that hour what you are to speak. 20 “For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you (Matt. 10:19-20).

4. We should reach out and bless our persecutors.

Bless those who persecute you; bless and curse not (Rom. 12:14).

What will be our reward?

1. Blessing.

Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me. 12 “Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you (Matt. 5:11-12).

But to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing; so that also at the revelation of His glory, you may rejoice with exultation. 14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you (1 Peter 4:13-14).

2. We will be rewarded in Heaven.

Rejoice, and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you (Matta. 5:12).

Why Is Pelosi Rushing the Impeachment of Donald Trump?

Clearly, she is rushing the impeachment to prevent Trump from ever running again as President. And all her rhetoric of wanting to protect this country is bogus. Her main drive is to have someone in office who is aligned with the global agenda and the Great Reset. And she knows that that will not be Donald Trump, that he has been a great obstacle to the global objective.  She cannot allow him ever again to be in office. And she—and all the Democrats—are stopping at nothing to achieve that objective.

The evidence is not in yet, but I suspect that she had something to do with the National Guard not arriving on time. I suspect also that she had something to do with the poor showing of the Capitol Police. I also suspect that she had something to do with the incitement or the encouragement of the rioting.

Furthermore, the impeachment went on without much discussion at all. The other side (Trump’s people) had no chance to rebut. That is very unamerican and wrong, and she knows it. Also, I think one of reasons why she was rushing to impeach is to get ahead of any investigation that may implicate her. And I’m sure she is taking steps to cover up any incriminating evidence.

One thing I have noticed about Nancy Pelosi is her ability to sound so righteous and to be so quick to point the finger at someone else, like Trump, when all along she is planning something evil. Yes, I think she is very devious. Why was she in China Town trying to convince Americans to come to China and party, just at the time that the virus was being released? I suspect something very devious. She can’t be trusted. I pray that truth will be revealed very soon. “[He will] bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s [men and women] hearts…” (1 Cor. 4:5).

Satan’s Master Plan for the World

Satan’s has a master plan for global control and world domination. As I see it, after Satan and the Antichrist (who will come on the scene later in the Tribulation), there are four levels of authority to Satan’s plan.

Level Four: Satan’s Elite Followers. Under Satan will be his followers, the Elite. The bible tells us that there will be Ten Kingdoms. They may exist now, or not. But they certainly will be revealed after the Rapture and in the Tribulation. Most of the elite leaders I think do exist now, and they are planning their schemes; and I’m sure they will have input into forming the ten kingdoms. And when the Antichrist comes on the scene, of course, he will have the most say in what happens, because he will be controlled and empowered by Satan.

We don’t know how connected all the elite are to Satan. Some may be true Satan worshippers, but others may be just blind followers. Regardless, all are willing followers—whether they truly believe in Satan or not.

Level Three: Suppliers of Big Tech. You’ve heard the saying, “follow the money.” Well, Satan is well aware that his master plan will need lots of money. Big Tech will be the suppliers of the master plan, and they will use their money and power to build the plan, and also to shut down all institutions and business that don’t go along with the plan—as they have jumped on board with the Great Reset, pushed by the founders of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab. Hence, we have seen recently how Amazon, Google, and Twitter very quickly shut down Parler, simply because they are a conservative company that does not agree with the master plan.

Level Two: Enforcers. The enforcers are very important. They are the link between Big Tech (and the Elite) and the common people, you and me. They are the liberal left politicians, along with the media. As it appears presently, almost all of the Democrats are in this group, from the House and Senate on down to the Governors and Mayors. If they are Democrats, it appears that they are included in the master plan. And certainly, if the police and the military are on the left side, they too will be included.

Level One: Willing Followers. This group is by far the largest. They do not have any authority, but their willingness to follow established liberal authority makes them powerful and very dangerous to all outsiders (those conservatives who are against the master plan). Their power exists in being reporters of all violations of the plan. Many will probably pride themselves in reporting violators and they will be rewarded.

Why is Big Tech Silencing Conservative Speech by Shutting Down Parler?

Why are Big tech companies like Amazon, Google and Apple trying to silence conservative speech by shutting down the twitter company Parler? Why are they trying to kill the competition? Why are they trying to kill free speech? Parler CEO is concerned.

Parler CEO: Tech Companies Coordinated Plan to Close Us Down

(Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures”)

By Eric Mack    |   Sunday, 10 January 2021 09:08 AM

The silencing of conservative speech on social media has spiraled into a “coordinated effort” by big tech to close down Parler, according to the social media platform’s CEO John Matze.

“Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” Matze told “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.

Matze was appearing after releasing a statement on the attempts to “destroy” his business.

“This was a coordinated attack by the tech giants to kill the competition in the marketplace,”

Matze’s statement read. “We were too successful too fast.

“You can expect the war on competition and free speech to continue, but don’t count us out. #speakfreely.”

Matze’s statement comes as Amazon is removing the platform from its webservers, which might take the conservative social media platform down for about a week.

“Sunday at midnight Amazon will be shutting off all of our servers in an attempt to completely remove free speech off the Internet,” he wrote. “There is a possibility Parler will be unavailable on the Internet for up to a week as we rebuild from scratch.

“We prepared for events like this by never relying on Amazon’s proprietary infrastructure and building bare metal products.”

Matze called out Amazon, Google, and Apple for orchestrating the “coordinated effort.”

“We will try our best to move to a new provider right now as we have many competing for our business; however, Amazon, Google, and Apple purposely did this as a coordinated effort knowing our options will be limited and knowing this would inflict the most damage right as President Trump was banned from the tech companies.”

The move was “an assault on everybody,” told Fox News.

“They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our apps, but they’re actually shutting all of our servers off tonight, off the internet,” Matze said. “They made an attempt to not only kill the app, but to actually destroy the entire company. And it’s not just these three companies. Every vendor from text message services to email providers to our lawyers all ditched us too on the same day.”

So, we have heard what happened, but do we really know why? Are the Big Tech companies really that concerned about the safety of the people in the Capitol or of democracy? Are they really that afraid of Trump and what he will do next? Are they afraid that free speech by Parler will incite more violence? Just what is their agenda?

I suggest that there is something much more devious going on. I suggest that the Big Tech companies are aligned with the movement called The Great Reset. It is a movement with a master plan for global control. This movement, led by “elitist” leaders like Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab and George Soros, have an agenda to tear down all old systems and buildings and to get rid of anything and anybody that doesn’t fit into their plans for a new world and a new world order.

And guess what? Conservatives, especially Christian conservatives do not fid into their master plan. So, this is why they are trying desperately to stop us and to shut us down. They, through Big Tech, will continue to try to silence our speech anyway they can: to shut down our twitter access, email accounts, Facebook accounts, and all social media access. In addition, as you know colleges have been shutting down conservative speech for some time. And now they are attempting to shut down Christian churches through the pretext of a pandemic. Most recently, they have diabolically stollen an election in order to quickly bring in their willing puppets, Biden and Harris, who will lead the country into the Great Reset—into the New World Order.

Capitol Hill Violence and More

A lot has been said in the media about Trump and his followers, especially regarding the last few days. Unfortunately, most or all that has been said is false. So, I want to give my thoughts to try to correct some thinking. I know I am not an expert on everything, but I think I know when falsehoods have been made. I will give my thoughts on four things:

Who is lying about voter fraud?

When Trump said that his election was stolen, was he lying? The media said he was lying. When Trump said that there were multiple cases of voter fraud, was he lying? The media said he was lying. And many others said he was lying. Even Bill Barr said there was no evidence of wide spread voter fraud. And McConnell also seems to be saying it.

Who is lying? Was there voter fraud or not? And was the election stolen? Yes! And Yes! The media is lying! And many others are lying. There are mounds and mounds of evidence to prove voter fraud and to prove that Donald Trump did win the election, but at the very end it was stolen. And just because the courts refuse to hear the evidence doesn’t mean that the evidence isn’t there.

We all know who is lying; and you, whoever you are, will be held accountable for your lies—at the judgment.

Did Donald Trump incite his followers to violence?

Well, that’s a good question? He certainly made his thoughts known; and they were true and true to him. But I don’t think President Trump intentionally intended to stir his followers up to do violence to the police or to the Capitol. I don’t think he really thought everything through. He just wanted justice to be done and wanted to convey it to others. I think he was very hopeful that his vice president would reject the fraudulent electoral votes, and maybe he thought his rally would convince him to do it. Certainly, the President made some wrong decisions, but that doesn’t mean he is totally to blame for the violence—maybe partially to blame. Those who did violence certainly should be held accountable for what they did.

Black Lives Matter followers vs Trump Followers

I have heard many of the media, and also Biden, say that the police treated the Trump intruders much better than the BLM rioters. Yes, I would say that is true. And the reason is because the BLM rioters were much more unruly and rude. They were yelling and cursing at the police. The Trump crowd was not. The BLM people were burning down buildings, overturning police cars, and throwing bombs; and the Trump people were relatively peaceful. The only time they were violent was when they were breaking into the Capitol. Also, the BLM rioters (those who were true believers in BLM) are Marxists and they hate America. But the Trump people love America and they were fighting for America. So, there is a big difference in the two groups and so they should have been treated differently.  

Trump’s Legacy

There is no question that what happened at the Capitol Hill will hurt the Trump legacy. But, knowing Donald Trump, he will find a way to get through it and survive. I think President Trump has been treated very badly and unfairly during his entire presidency. In spite of it all, he has accomplished many good things for America. It is just too bad that much of it will be reversed during the Biden term, and because of the China Virus.

Antifa Infiltrated Trump Rally

I was just informed through Bill Koenig’s Eye View at watch.org, as he cited the Gateway Pundit, that “at least one bus load of Antifa goons infiltrated the Trump rally…” That makes a lot of sense to me. I would guess that many of those people who were scaling the White House walls and breaking windows and entering the white house were paid Antifa goons—paid big money by billionaires like George Soros. They were hired to discredit Donald trump and his Presidency, and also in an effort to put a black mark on him in order to dissuade people from supporting him in the future.

BREAKING REPORT: Former FBI Agent on the Ground at US Capitol Says at Least One Bus Load of Antifa Thugs Infiltrated Trump Demonstration

According to a former FBI agent on the ground at the US Capitol, at least one bus load of Antifa goons infiltrated the Trump rally as part of a false flag operation.

Chaos erupted at the US Capitol building on Wednesday after Vice President Mike Pence announced he would not block Biden’s electors. 

Trump supporters are being blamed for all of the violence and chaos but according to a former FBI agent, Antifa has infiltrated the Trump rally.

Via investigative reporter Paul Sperry: Former FBI agent on the ground at U.S. Capitol just texted me and confirmed that at least 1 “bus load” of Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Trump demonstrators as part of a false Trump flag ops

The Great Reset Is Coming Fast

There is so much talk lately about the Great Reset. It has been in the works for many years; but now, with so much lawlessness, the riots, Covid-19, and voter fraud, it seems to be coming fast. In this blog post I will present my information from two sources: first, from an article by Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum; secondly, by a Jan Markell interview with two Bible prophecy experts, pastor Billy Crone and pastor Brandon Holthaus.

I. From an article by Klaus Schwab: Now is the time for a ‘great reset’

Klaus Schwab is the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, which I would say is one of the main promoters and architect of the great reset. Here, in six points, is his promotion of this great reset:

1. Klaus Schwab wants to “reset the world.”

2. Schwab says, “In every crisis there is an opportunity [for the reset].”

3. He said, “We can emerge from this crisis [Covid-19] a better world, if we act quickly and jointly.” (My words: Obviously, he is a globalist, not a nationalist.)

4. Schwab said, “We could be facing the worst depression since the 1930’s. To achieve a better outcome, we need to act quickly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies. Everything must be transformed. We need a great reset.” (Italics for emphasis)

5. Schwab said, “We must build entirely new foundations for our economic and social systems.”

6. Schwab gives these three components to the great reset (shortened and summarized in my words).

  • Governments to improve coordination: in taxes, trade, reforms, new rules. (you see the global initiative here)
  • Ensure that investments advance shared goals: like building green urban infrastructures and improving the environment.
  • Harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. To address health and social challenges –therapeutics, vaccines, testing centers. (sounds like they are anticipating more viruses)

II. From Jan Markell’s Interview entitled, Antichrist Kingdom Rising (Part 1)

The following information is from my notes of this online radio interview. I will present it in four main points with subpoints.

What is the Great Reset and how will it work?

  1. It is a master plan for global control that was unveiled in Switzerland.
  2. The plan consists of tearing down all old systems and building one new global system. You may see now part of the tear down plan in the works, such as…
    • Lawlessness and riots
    • Covid-19 (which may have been purposely planned in order to make people fearful in order to confuse and better control them)
    • Voter fraud (all in the plan to get rid of Donald Trump, who has been a great hindrance to the global plan)
  3. A new world Order in which all nations and governments work together.
    • A global currency
    • Global viruses and vaccines
  4. New leadership
    • Elitist from all over the world will come together to make plans: people like Bill Gates, Dr. Fouche, Klaus Swab and George Soros
    • The UN and groups like the World Economic Forum will try to take control
    • The U. S. Democrats along with the media will be involved
    • Biden and Harris will play their part as puppets
    • Ultimately, one world leader will take control: The Antichrist
  5. How the reset plan will work
    • Basically, the plan is to control the world of people through fear, using such things as man made viruses and wearing masks and shut downs (and it has thus far worked pretty good).
    • To establish new credit ID’s
    • Global wealth distribution
    • Universal health care
    • Basic housing
    • Merging man with machine

The Church

Unfortunately, most of the church is in the dark as to what is going on, because pastors refuse to learn and teach their people anything about Bible prophecy. Much of the blame should go to the Seminaries and bible colleges, most of which are a-millennial.

Voter Fraud

It has been going on for decades in Communist countries, and now it is here in America. I think it will continue to be used by the globalists in order to control the nations and all people. It recently has been used to stop Donald Trump and his hold on America. Soon we will see America join the socialists of the world and be connected to world power and the Antichrist. 

Vaccines

Governments won’t force vaccines on the people. We will instead see big businesses forcing it. We have already heard, mainly from Israel, that people won’t be able to buy anything from stores, or go anywhere by planes unless they are marked with the vaccine. These new vaccines aren’t like any normal vaccine. They will modify your DNA. It is a genetic modification technology. It could be a permanent change in your DNA. And it will somehow mark you so that scanners will know if you have taken the vaccine or not. Also, another element of the vaccine is called hydrogel, or nano-technology (little robots inside your body), which will connect you to artificial technology.

If this all sound scary, it is (but I am not sure I believe it entirely as Billy Crone has described it). But the Christian doesn’t have to worry anyway, because I think we will be gone, raptured by that time—which may be very soon. Yes, if this new vaccine does what I have just described, maybe that means the rapture is very very soon. But even if it is delayed, I still am not too worried, and I probably will get the vaccine along with everybody else. God will protect me until He comes.
