The Freedoms We’ve Lost

We have no idea how much liberty and freedom we don’t have. Before the end of this decade, we will learn exactly what we lost.

Psalm 94:3-7 ESV
O LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked exult? hey pour out their arrogant words; all the evildoers boast. They crush your people, O LORD, and afflict your heritage. They kill the widow and the sojourner, and murder the fatherless; and they say, “The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob does not perceive.”

Psalm 94:12-15 ESV
Blessed is the man whom you discipline, O LORD, and whom you teach out of your law, to give him rest from days of trouble, until a pit is dug for the wicked. For the LORD will not forsake his people; he will not abandon his heritage; for justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.

Psalm 94:20-23 ESV
Can wicked rulers be allied with you, those who frame injustice by statute? They band together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the LORD has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge. He will bring back on them their iniquity and wipe them out for their wickedness; the LORD our God will wipe them out.

The Parable of the Sower

Mark 4

In many churches, especially like the ones I attended, the Parable of the Sower is throw-away scripture. Once one has learned the necessary doctrine and understood it’s no longer about them, the scripture and its lesson are discarded to the “only for the lost” heap – never to be revisited. That is until the preacher needs some easy material and feels a bit more evangelistic than normal. Otherwise, life conveniently continues without looking back.

But here’s the actual truth:

There is only one sower, and it’s never the preacher: Jesus is the sower. You are forever the field.

God the Father wants you to know this: you have the potential to be any element of the field. You can be the rocks, the soil by the road, the thorny soil where the word is choked out. Or you can be the good soil that bears fruit.

This parable isn’t about salvation: it’s about your life and your perception of yourself. The parable certainly has utility for the evangelical, but it mustn’t be discarded to the useless heap we so often manage.

Father’s heart is this: He wants you to understand that you have the potential to be anything you choose to be in this field where the sower casts His word. How you receive His Word, His Heart, is up to you.

The parable of the talents teaches us that the currency of Heaven is Faith. And each of us has been given a measure accordingly. What we do with it is up to us. We can invest our faith or hide it. But the measure or quantity we have been given is irrelevant.

When the Word arrives in your field, is it

  • Snatched away because of unbelief?
  • Choked out because of the cares of the world?
  • Withered away because of persecution against it?
  • Or multiplied because of careful application of faith?

Don’t Study the Bible

If there is one word, one idea that I could promulgate to your soul, it would be this:

Don’t study the bible: comprehend it with your heart.

It’s like being married and watching your spouse cook you dinner for 30 years. You’ve learned every recipe, every ingredient, and every mixing and combining process. You understand when to mix, when to fold, and when to cut. You’ve learned so much you can cook better than your spouse with one hand tied behind your back.

But you never comprehended the why of baking pies and cakes, the purpose of sumptuous dinners, and tasteful picnics.

You never comprehended your spouse’s purpose or character.

In other words, you studied the wrong thing. You understood with your mind, but you never comprehended with your heart.

The Halloween Dream

There is a calling upon our lives, and a warning for those who refuse to listen.

Occasionally I’ll listen to a Dana Coverstone dream. And since like the interpretation of dreams, I will practice using his dreams.

Here’s the Halloween Dream and my interpretation. Listen to the dream first, then the following will make more sense.

The Halloween Dream – Brace Yourself – YouTube

Preface: there is a spirit behind Wokeism that has been working in our culture and churches for a long time. The spirit behind those who would teach that scripture is not absolute is the same spirit behind Wokeism. Please do not presume that the spirit of Wokeism is new: it has been moving in our culture and churches for a long time.

Bob, The builder = the people who parrot and build what leadership says and promulgate their words.

Scare Crow – Doesn’t have a brain.  You don’t need to think for yourself; just do as we say.

Fifteen minutes late is a double-sided coin; it is two ideas. First, we’re late to the game, late in fulfilling our purpose. We – the Body of Christ – should have been doing this all along, not letting a myriad of stagnant ministries (parked cars) do the work of Jesus for us. 

Fifteen implies salvation, healing, and redemption. It means stepping up and ascending. The number fifteen also represents the elevation from the physical to the spiritual. There are fifteen Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134) and fifteen steps to enter the temple; the Priestly Blessing consists of fifteen Hebrew words; Hosea redeemed his wife with fifteen shekels of silver.  We are ministers of reconciliation. 

The 15th letter in the Hebrew alphabet is Samech which has a numerical value of 60  (seconds in a minute).  It means to surround, support, and protect.

15 is 5 three times.  5 means power, strength, alertness or wake-up, Torah, grace, ministry, service, gospel, fruitfulness, going forth, fast movement, anointed, prayers, and protection.

The costumed: there are those in some churches and congregations who are pretenders who want to have their ears tickled with cultural morality.

The un-costumed: Others in those churches know that Wokeism is wrong, but they’re committed to something within the organization which necessitates that they remain quiet and non-confrontational toward the truth.

When a masquerader removes their mask, everyone knows who they are regardless of their costume – even those outside the Court of the King and Queen. 

Seeing that the sun was setting at the end of the encounter, we know that circumstances spoke of will arise soon.  They will come from outside the Church to cause the removal of masks.  This will be a negative, anti-Christian cultural pressure.

Those who refuse to heed God’s word will find themselves in a double jeopardy judgment. First, their mask will be removed, exposing their association with the Church and their offense to the surrounding culture. Secondly, they will no longer be able to repent towards the truth they refused to heed and accept.  

Revelation 9:21; 16:9

ESG and Wokeism

Wokeism is a neo-fascist religion, and ESG functions as is its social contract circumventing constitutional teeth.

ESG is a global soft introduction to social credit scores for commerce control.

Wokeism is a neo-fascist religion, and ESG functions as is its social contract circumventing constitutional teeth.

Folks, the core ingredients are all here:

– Digital currency
– Wearable Near Fied Communication devices (RFID)
– A fashionable, irrational, and emotion-driven religion
– A deployable mechanism to force obedience (disease & financial pressure)

Expect continued coalescence of these things driven downwards towards your personal sovereignty.

The Beast of Revelation isn’t just a leader. He’s a leader that emerges from the “sea” of people. The Beast is just as much a way of thinking and governance as a person.

The False Prophet is the voice that proclaims societal salvation through the ways of the Beast.

What Is Wrong With “ESG” Wokeism

A Problem with Evangelicalism

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God?

I will not receive any brownie points for this blog post, but it’s something that needs exposure.

Consider for a moment that the New Testament does not begin with chapter 1 of the book of Matthew. Instead, it begins in chapter 27, at the crucifixion. So perhaps we might say the New Testament begins just before the book Acts.

As such, it is safe to assert that no one Jesus was preaching to was saved in what we today would consider a Biblical or Classical sense of the word.

A Good, Bible Teaching Church

What Evangelicals call a good message, preaching the word, or the gospel, is more akin to a historical message from the 1700s, known as Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. I have friends – professing born-again Christians – who believe that if they’re not being condemned from the pulpit and don’t feel shame and discomfort, then the sermon is of little value.

This is the value we, as Evangelicals, have placed upon the non-churched: they are people of no value, worms not worthy of the light of God. These sinners deserve the justice of hell, an eternal condemnation of pain and misery.

So we scare and condemn them into heaven, just like Jonathan Edwards did. The very thing God our Father has comforted us against – fear – we recast as the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

Jesus said, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Isra’el “(Matt. 15:24). With that in mind, who was the audience of His first sermon, the one we commonly call the Beatitudes? Were these people who were saved in the classical sense? Or were these people the lost sheep of the house of Isra’el?

I would suggest that they were lost sheep of the house of Isra’el.

A Better Way

If you have not read Matthew chapter 5 in a while, you need to re-read it. Here are a few links to help you do that:

Matthew Chapter 5

Did you notice verses 13 and 14?

You are the salt of the earth

Matthew 5:13

You are the light of the world

Matthew 5:14

Jesus wasn’t speaking to born-again Christians. He was speaking to the lost sheep of Isra’el.

How can that be? How can sinners, in the hands of an angry God, be the salt of the earth and light of the world? It’s simple:

Jesus wasn’t speaking to their sin; he was speaking to their design.

In other words, the God of the Universe thinks the best way to help people see their need for Him is not to condemn them of their sins but to tell them who they are.

And that’s a problem with Evangelicalism. We’d rather use a weapon of evil than a blessing of righteousness to reach those who need Him the most.

Adonai Elohim has given me the ability to speak as a man well taught, so that I, with my words, know how to sustain the weary.

Each morning he awakens my ear to hear like those who are taught.

Isaiah 50:4

Taking God’s Name in Vain

Who among you fears Adonai? Who obeys what his servant says? Even when he walks in the dark, without any light, he will trust in Adonai’s reputation and rely on his God.

But all of you who are lighting fires and arming yourselves with firebrands: go, walk in the flame of your own fire, among the firebrands you lit! From my hands this [fate] awaits you: you will lie down in torment.

Isaiah 50:10-11 CJB


A person’s name is their reputation, character, and personal qualities.

Taking the name of God in vain is not using it as a curse word.

Taking the name of God in vain is connecting yourself with Him and subsequently refusing His qualities, power, and desires.

Adhering to cessationism is taking the name of God in vain.

Justice and Judgment

Don’t look at either of these concepts in the context of good or bad – extract them from those qualities. Neither concept requires a pretext of right or wrong.

Justice and mercy work together. They are sovereign.

Judgment and grace work together. They are not sovereign.

Justice determines what one fairly deserves. Justice does not touch the observed thing; justice is not manipulated; justice sovereignly discovers a fair assessment. Once the fair assessment is determined, mercy may be applied.

Judgment is giving one what they fairly deserve. Judgment touches the thing being observed; judgment can be manipulated. Once the judgment process begins, the recipient may plea with the judge and receive grace.

John 3:18 “The one who believes in Him is not judged; the one who does not believe has been judged already because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”

Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;”

Satan Doesn’t Want to Fill Hell

Here’s a brain twister for you:

Satan doesn’t care how many people go to Hell or Heaven. If he did, he would have opposed abortion since that filled Heaven with millions of innocent souls.

Satan cares about ruling: power and authority. He has won as long as he can disarm Christians through false doctrines that make them ineffective in society.

As an example, consider the pre-tribulation rapture theology.

Just like the Ten Virgins who believed they had all the anointing required to attend the wedding feast, many Christians believe all they need is the sealing Holy Spirit to keep them safe until the Rapture, all the while praying that the Lord comes soon.

Most preachers have wrongly taught that the blessing is attached to attending the wedding feast. However, the blessing is linked to being invited (Revelation 19:9): both the wise and the foolish virgins were invited, and both participated in that blessing. But the wise virgins understood that disregarding the power of the oil would get them into trouble.

Christians today spend their lives staying out of the way of Secular and worldly concerns, happy to be sealed for the Rapture, and praying that it happens soon. They eschew most things associated with Holy Spirit except that bit about the sealing.

They follow, practice, and elevate doctrine and good bible teaching churches above all else, rather than following and pursuing a living relationship with Jesus.

They look at the parable of The Talents and presume that preaching, teaching, and other noble gifts are the things God expects them to use and perfect, all the while not recognizing that the currency of Heaven is Faith.

They cannot discern between good and evil, even when it stares them in the face through mainstream media and lying government agencies. Essentially, they have become non-effective in doing the Master’s bidding of keeping the house safe when the thief arrives.

A day is soon coming wherein you must be able to discern between the Wolves in sheep’s clothing and those who are simply broken. The wolves have injected the Church with paralyzing and sterilizing doctrines However, it is the broken who hurt people by their actions.

You can restore the broken, but you must exile the Wolves and their false doctrines.
