Think With Courage Speak Boldly

Speak Boldly
Speak Boldly

Ephesians 6:18-20

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Christians Speaking Boldly

As Christians and patriots we should speak the truth boldly, with no fear. Biblically this means being able to read study and pass on the knowledge of  Gods word.

As God’s ambassadors we are spreading the word of the sacrifice Christ made, with blood on the cross.

Believers   are persecuted than in many other parts of the world. The same people who cry out for tolerance have none to give when it comes to Christianity, even here in the US.

Christians  are punished  by the far-left socialist through media and attacks on our freedom of speech. They do this while at the same time elevating  Islam and applying different rules.

Many of the values held by Islam is held by Christians, the difference is there are not Christians states killing people for not accepting Christ, but there are Islamic states that do this regularly.

As a result Christians are hated  for naming an action as a sin while Muslim States  are violating human rights for actually punishing people for the things they call sin.

Even so, speak BOLDLY

Bold Patriots
Patriots

Patriots Speaking Boldly

As patriots we are also to speak boldly, we support our founding documents as written, paid for with the blood and sacrifices of many men and women.

The Constitution is seen by patriots  as the law, and not a “living document”  to be manipulated for political gain. Freedom of speech as an example extends to all point of views.

Far Left Socialist Hate Machine

 

Peaceful assembly turns into riots further more free speech is only allowed when it agrees with their Marist like propaganda. The left have become Nazi’s that they accuse their opposition of being.

Most noteworthy they have managed to shut down anyone who dares to disagree, they do this by;

  1. Political correctness – used to limit what they see as allowable speech.
  2.  Shouting down anyone who attempts to present a view in public that contradicts their intolerant beliefs.
  3. Bullying by name calling and attempting to use public shame.

Because they are aided by much of the media the people never get the real story, instead they get only the propaganda that the socialist want them to hear.

In conclusion they have started the second civil war, which by all accounts has us more divided today than the first one.

Now What ?

Due to their tactics  we have little choice, we must continue to fight using all the tools our founders gave us. We must avoid violence we must speak boldly but most of all we must maintain the moral high ground.

Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day

Washington, D.C.
March 30, 1863
Senator James Harlan of Iowa, whose daughter later married President Lincoln’s son Robert, introduced this Resolution in the Senate on March 2, 1863. The Resolution asked President Lincoln to proclaim a national day of prayer and fasting. The Resolution was adopted on March 3, and signed by Lincoln on March 30, one month before the fast day was observed.

Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day
Pray for America

A Christian Nation

Like it or not, our Nation was founded on Christian Judea values. President Lincoln (a Republican for all you who don’t know any better)  further proved this not only for his efforts to abolish slavery but for his faith in God.

Not only was it a republican but a man of faith who ended slavery, while the democrats founded the KKK, and all the laws that suppressed the rights of African Americans, and they still do it today.

Abortion, murder of babies affects a higher percentage of minorities, just as poverty ( remember the fake war on poverty, you can thank the democrats for that) murder and high unemployment rates. This is a direct result of racism, and the plantation owners are still democrats.  They will continue to give hand outs, to buy the votes of the poor and uninformed minorities and todays slave have no choice (in their mind) but to vote for their masters.

Break the cycle,  no race is better or worse than the other in the eyes of our God, we are all created in his image. Turn back to God, white, black, brown poor or rich it is time again for this nation to humble ourselves before God, acknowledge our sins and turn back to him, only then can we as a country become whole.

Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.

Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th. day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.

All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and the restoration of our now divided and suffering Country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty seventh.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln
William H. Seward, Secretary of State.

Patriotism, Have a Healthy Pride in Your Country

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. – President Trump.

 

ca. 1980-2001

Patriotism has never been a bad word, or a dangerous belief. It is not prejudice, it is not isolationism it is what being an American is , has been and should be.

It was patriots who founded this nation, they were (and successfully so in my view) in search of a more perfect , not a perfect Union.

Many patriots have died defending this nation, they were from every race, religion rich and poor, they were Americans.

The Press

 

Patriots are found (though more rarely in recent years) in our press. They bring facts and information they are the peoples eyes and ears to keep this government in check, a Constitutional Republic, the true unbiased reporters are patriots, again their religion, skin color none of things are important, it is their love of this great nation that that is the great equalizer it is what makes them patriots.

Elected Officials

 

Elected officials that are there to make this country great, that do not care about the party, but the people. They do the right thing no matter how hard or what the consequence they uphold their oath, these men and woman are patriots.

 

First Responders

Our First responders, putting our lives ahead of their own, working long hours for little pay or reward. First responders are hated when they do their job and loved when they do their job, everyday when they go to work they go with the knowledge that they may not come home, these great men and woman are patriots and yet again their background is unimportant.

 

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. – President Trump

The day after 9/11 American flags were everywhere we stood united against our enemy it did not matter poor, rich, white skin brown skin we were Americans.

The Turn , Patriotism Demonized

Under Barack Obama, suddenly being patriotic would get you on a list, labeled a bigot  it became a bad thing.

President Lincoln said “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”  The Bible is not silent on the subject please follow the link below.

Matthew 12:22-28New King James Version (NKJV)

 

Over the past 8-10 years the anti-American far left demonized patriotism, they purposely tried (and were pretty successful ) at dividing our house, we the people. These people are in fact traitors maybe all do not deserver hanging, but none deserve to go unpunished.

Unite or Die

People who would cede our nations laws to a foreign power such as the UN are in fact evil traitors. The hate freedom, they hate us, and you guessed it they hate everyone of us regardless of they very labels they invented to divide.

White skinned, brown skinned, rich poor, Christian, Atheist. We are all Americans , we can all be patriots. The picture above is old, but the truth it tells is the same, we will have to unite as a people or die under the boot of tyranny.

May God Bless this great nation and all of our patriots that come from all walks of life to preserve the freedom so many  have left us to protect and may we leave not only the same freedoms for our children and their children to enjoy but the promise of a more perfect union, not perfect we are after all only human.

Enough Already

Shut Up, Grow up Step Up

 

Shut Up, Grow up Step Up
knock it off
Shut Up!

It is time we shut up, grow up  step up, this applies to us all. Left, right, middle its time.

Republicans and Conservatives have a right to gloat a little 8 years of a President that we really did not like or trust  is over. Don’t be hateful and forgive if needed.

Liberals who do not understand the electoral college or a democratic republic ignore the media and learn. Don’t get your news or opinions from talk shows and do not trust the media, research as much as you can yourself.

Grow Up!

Mocking  the losers is good release, but yes we have to now get to the business at hand.

Those who are so upset that they are not functional, that lectured the right before the election to accept the outcome stop.

Step Up!

 

The time has come to step up, our freedoms demand our participation, not all have taking an oath, but by enjoying these freedoms you have agreed to support all of them and for everyone equally

 

Job One

After Shut Up, Grow up Step Up we know need to get to work. We the people, left, right, middle we have a lot of work to do. We must protect our place as the real leaders of this Republic.

Benjamin Franklin famously said this in response to a question ( I borrowed it from the link above) what form of government do we have – a republic or a monarchy?  He replied, “A republic if you can keep it.”

We need to stop thinking our rights, our Constitution don’t fit todays world that it is a “living document in need of update, WRONG!

No need to go over all of our rights but the first two are firmly in our control and intended to give We the people the Power as intended. Study it,  here is a great free online college course that everyone should consider,

The Wrap Up

Elections are rough and ugly, even as a Christian I sometimes go over the top. I would always encourage people to seek Christ, but in Christianity it is a choice. It does not change my love for you as my neighbors in the world.

These ideas don’t require you to be saved, just human.

  • Don’t trust the Internet or the Media Study.
  • Respect everyone else’s First Amendment Rights, after all if we all agreed we would not need to protect freedom of speech.
  • Hold the government accountable and don’t expect free stuff, the hidden price tag is your political soul.
  • It’s ok to judge people, but do it by their character, their actions not by their race, religion or country of origin.
  • Always remember that we the people must never be divided, we can disagree but in the end walk away from those leaders that promote division.

May God bless you all, our Country and our President Elect, time to move on.

The Day After November 9th, Will Division Reign?

The Day After

500487286_640
We will not stand

The day after election day 2016 we will be in mostly the exact same place we are today, divided.  Division already at an all time high will be pushed further to the brink, moving this country in my opinion in  acts of civil disobedience beyond anything we have ever see. I would not be surprised to se us break down into complete anarchy or even civil war. The scary part? is does not matter who wins. Nether Trump or Hillary have ran on any kind of unity platform, from the name calling between the candidates to the extreme hate of supporters on both sides for their counter parts.

Hillary

Obama, perhaps the most divisive President in history at least lied when he ran and pretended while campaigning to be everyone’s candidate. The Clintons are well known for the ability to hold grudges and skirt the law, I have no don’t that her administration will attack the constitution , Christians all of our rights with a special interest in taking our gun rights away.

Trump

Trump is a big unknown, in full disclosure I support him, I am a typical right leaning independent, I will not be rioting just because Hilary wins, as messed up as the systems is that is not what you do, however BLM (Hate Group), the “new black panther party” and the Soros supported occupy thugs are violent and based on the leaked e-mails so are the Hilary people. So even if Trump tries to run from the middle and give everyone a seat I can totally see the Obama/Hillary hate machine starting violent civil unrest and forcing the hand of typically calm patriots to defend against such actions.

The People

ca. 1980-2001
We the People

 

Finally it will come down to we the people, we know without a doubt the racism has increased in the last 8 years, the current party in power has used it to promote its agenda by keeping the people separated. This has continued into the election and to the supporters.

I like Trump so I am a Racist , If you like Hillary you are a socialist. These statements are NOT universally true in fact the far right and left of each party is really the minority in my view, but between the media helping full the racism and the Obama hate groups out in full swing those of in the middle do not get heard, we do not matter. That battle is lost we are a house divided and on the 9th no matter who wins unless we unite we will fall, our Constitutional Republic will be gone and the only winners will be the 1% and the ruling class. The day after we the people need to stand as one.

The Media

free-press

Kudos to the media they have fueled the anti-American movement for years, they love socialism. You can see it in their ads, interviews they don’t even pretend anymore. What really makes me wonder is how so many of us are to stupid to see what they have done, and really worse yet what they have done to themselves.

The First Amendment has been hack away little by little, again you may like it, for now but sooner or later it will be your speech they limit. Hate speech in my opinion is a made up word the 1A is not intended to protect  speech everyone agrees with, why would we even need the right? The problem with calling everything “hate speech” is in doing so you prevent legitimate debate, and it miss proportionality  affects religion.

As an example the Bible I follow is clear on homosexuality, it is a sin. That same Bible also tells me that to hate a person is a sin, and to hate them for a sin? well that’s just hypocrisy. The media however calls this hate speech, I suppose the media and politicians hate the word sin because it includes lying and stealing that said as a Christian I to sin and fall short of the glory of God, with these facts in hand hate speech becomes instead my ability to worship my God as I am commanded. I will not get into the cake baking argument but preachers should have no obligation to perform a ceremony that they are taught is a sin.

But I am trailing off, in short the media one of the only companies where their product is protected by our bill of rights has become blatantly dishonest and Bias, a fact that should worry us all. The day after the media could make our break us as a nation.

Hope

tumblr_mc86drmjze1qjam55o1_500_large

First and foremost I want to be wrong, if Trump or Hillary wins I want us to once again to start to unite, it is not impossible. Hillary could be using Obamas ability to give a speech and mobilize the vote and may actually try to unite the country. Trump when you listen to the entirety of his speech’s is not a bigot , between media snippets, loaded questions and his tendency to think everyone gets what he is trying to say. He may through his actions prove to be able to unite, something Obama has not only failed at, he has failed intentionally.

As I stated I am for Trump, his abortion stance and first and second amendment rights stances best fit my believes, the fact that Bush and Romney hate him is a plus.

In the end it is we the people who need to take control because without that not only will the winner fail, we might just lose our country. Besides the end of commercials I will be praying for the day after.

Time to be a Patriot – Tyrants Ahead

Why it’s Time to be a Patriot

252218-1920x1080
Patriot in a Lovely Shade of black and Brass

 

First let me explain what I mean by being a Patriot. Being born in the USA makes you a citizen and yes you are afforded all of the rights our Constitution/Bill of Rights spells out. These rights are  inalienable  they cannot be taken away, as a Christian I believe they are from God, you do not have to believe that. You only need to know that I cannot take yours away nor you mine.

Being a patriot is different, you can be patriotic at times. You can vote, you may fly your flag once in a while you may even participate in free speech. These things do not make you a patriot, a patriot will without question defend your rights, even if he or she does not agree with them. A patriot will not only engage in free speech but defend it, and yes sometimes being a patriot means being willing to lose it all, money, wealth liberty and life defending our rights. Arlington Nation Cemetery is filled with patriots as is every veteran cemetery across this great nation. These men and women died defending your rights, what you have today, what we can say and do is because of the love they had for this great country, so much so they died for it.

Tyrants are getting Bolder

Lately being a patriot has been labeled by our own government as a sign of domestic terrorism, if you dare stand up for our rights or use your freedom of speech in a way that “offends them” that is what they call you. If you believe that you have the right to own a gun to not just to defend your person, but your rights not only are you a patriot but in the view of many of our leaders today, you are a danger. We call them Tyrants, and I call them by name, Obama is a tyrant he actively attacks the very Constitution he swore to defend, he is by definition a tyrant and a traitor. Loretta Lynch, she is a tyranny this is the treasonous Attorney General that calls patriots terrorist, not a patriot but a tyrant.

That last paragraph, that is just part of the reason its time to be a patriot. When they start telling us what “hate speech” is they are limiting our free speech Its Time

  • When they can take away your rights with no trail, think no-fly list  its Time
  • When they tell us what guns we can own and they would like that to be none” Its Time
  • When Justice and law are applied differently to different classes of citizens Its Time

The time to be a patriot is now, our leaders are tyrants and traitors we can hopefully through voting and free speech get back to the business of freedom but our very Constitution in fact to be specific the Second Amendment is there when all else fails. That’s right when all else fails patriots have not just the right, but the duty to act with force if need be. Why do you think they hate the 2A?,  do you really think life is precious to a tyrant? Abortion alone dispels that, but when they start using military force be it through police or a 3 letter agency well I think they would find it much easier if we are disarmed.

I am NOT calling for an armed revolution, first of it would not be a revolution , we would be simply removing the tyrannical occupiers, but violence should always be our last resort. Just because they skirt the law, we would be no better if we did the same. By the way, most of their laws are unlawful, redundant and overreaching. But that is another post.

We need Patriots wiling to give it all up including their very life to make sure that our children and grand children have the same freedoms we once had, not so long ago. Being patriotic is great, being a patriot can be hard but it’s even better.

Bible Influenced US Constitution

Bible and the Constitution

Yes, the Bible did influenced the Constitution and below are some reasons  I and others believe this. It is important especially today when we have a clearly tyrannical government and the anti – American “Deep State”  that needs to be fixed. If it cannot be fixed which is possible, our Constitution is the final word.

ac

The Culture

When the  Constitution was written the church and the Bible played a huge role in how they behaved, what was right and what was wrong, in turn this influenced our Constitution.

That does not mean to suggest that everyone was a Christian or went to the same church but the values they all held were very similar. You can go here to see how the different cultures of Europe affected how people acted. You can also use common sense, even early 1800’s 1900’s have cultures that reflected Biblical values to a great extent.

The morals of the day played a large roll in the Framers of our Constitution life’s, again this does not mean they where Christians it merely shows how they viewed morals in that day.

The Bible Connection

Liberty, what a great word used in speech’s and in the opening sentence of our Constitution (here)

The Bible talks about liberty and freedom, a lot.  A search returned over two dozen. References from here.

Galatians 5:1

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

1 Peter 2:16

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.

Isaiah 61:1

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;

The TEN Commandments (the same ones that make atheist head pop off) is written in stone at the supreme court and look at the laws that we instituted . Those laws, our Rights and even in the words of our founders “Inalienable rights” are clear they cannot be taken away, I believe they are given by God, you may believe it is just a birthright ether way the are Inalienable period.  See definition below.

in·al·ien·a·ble

[inˈālēənəb(ə)l]

ADJECTIVE

  1. unable to be taken away from or given away by the possessor:

    “freedom of religion, the most inalienable of all human rights”

Lets Wrap This Up

If the Deep State , the whole Congress and the Supreme court decide the Second Amendment is to be removed, they can’t, change the First? Nope they don’t have the authority they cannot take away a right they did not grant.

This is truly one Nation Under God, like it or not.

God Hears the Righteous , but Not You

He can’t hear you Psalms 34:12 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry

For those who feel that prayers are a waste that God does not hear, be it for the comfort of shooting victims to getting that dream home fear not! God probably did not hear you anyway. I was amazed (sort of) that some news outlets and your average Twitter/FB Christian hater  would condemn those who pray and call it a waste of time.

If you are a Christian and you are having doubts about prayer and Gods word this post is not for you, as Christians we can sometimes loose faith Matthew 8:26 and he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.” and in Matthew 14:29-31 Even Peter took his eyes off of Christ

Rights From God, from you? not so much

This post is for you Christian hating liberals, you know who you are. The Constitution ( you know that old piece of paper you love to hate, unless you can use it out of context to support your views) was really written by man. When our founders wrote “We hold these truths to be self evident” they were saying in essence we are written theses down, but they come from God or for you haters they are naturel born rights. That’s right these are RIGHTS that even the great Obama and the progressive Hillary or even the self righteous Supreme court members cannot take away. You bend them, and make laws that allow you to weaken them but such laws hold no sway to the King of Kings.

Your right if you fit the category above, your prayers are useless and God knows your heart. So when Obama says our prayers are with you, it is at best wishing you well (for the slow ones, yes I just implied that your king is not saved). Matthew 7:20 explains why I can claim, with certainty that Obama is not Christian. Take a few minute to yell at the computer then read on.

   20140526_145812_Android

What you are really praying for is for God to change His mind and take away our rights, you are really praying that you and your false idols and corrupt kings can rule over people by force and foolishness. So when you yell “Praying does not work!” your right. For you it is a waste, go ask your cat you will get the same results.

So just relax, and ponder why you hate something you don’t believe in, to you it makes as much sense as hating the Easter bunny, think about how upset you get over what some of you call the invisible man. Go see a doctor  it is not healthy to harbor such hate, let alone in something that is not real to you.

BAD NEWS

Prayer from the faithful (those crazy Christians) are heard and answered.

John 9:29-31,

29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.

31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

We do not pray to oppress the God given rights of others, not even your right to reject God, but we do pray that you find God. We pray that He protects us from evil, like those who would oppress and persecute us. We pray above all his will be done.
