Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit the Apostle Paul gave the new Colossian believers this encouragement: “For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God (Colossians 1:9-10).
Christians in need of courage, wisdom, grace, and strength in these tumultous times can do no better than to embrace the truth found in Colossians 1, and indeed, in the entire book. We are complete in Christ alone, and must live in that reality. God’s Word is sufficient to meet every challenge, including those of today.
1. CRITICAL RACE ATTACKS AMERICA’S HISTORY AND FOUNDING PRINCIPLES: The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration has now placed a “harmful language alert” on the web pages displaying the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Click the links to see for yourself. Black Lives Matter summed up everything leftists claim is wrong with America: “This nation was built on the stolen land of Indigenous people and the stolen labor and lives of our African Ancestors.” Christopher R. Rufo has exposed Google’s new “antiracism” initiative, which presents Americans as a “system of white supremacy” and claims that all Americans are “raised to be racist.”
Two notable statues came down this week, one of General Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia, and one of explorer Christopher Columbus in Mexico City, Mexico. (It will be replaced with the statute of an indigenous woman). At the same time, a lawsuit in California is pushing back against officials who require students to pray to Aztec gods of human sacrifice.
The first NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers began with the National Anthem and the Black National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”
Ed. Note: To paraphrase Orwell, they know they have to destroy the past so they can control the future. When a country’s founding documents are under attack by those in authority, it should be obvious that those in power are enemies of that country.
2. CPUSA WRITER PROPOSES “ECONOMIC” BILL OF RIGHTS: M. P. Britt of the Communist Party USA recommended an “Economic” Bill of Rights, one he admits draws from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Second Bill of Rights, WEB Du Bois’ application for membership in the Communist Party, and the CPUSA’s current Party Program. Below is Britt’s condensed version:
- The right to a good job and the right to unionize.
- The right to the necessities of life.
- The right to equal pay for equal work and full abolition of slavery.
- The right to be free from unfair business and financial practices and monopolies.
- The nationalization of natural resources and indigenous peoples’ right to their land.
- The right to healthcare.
- The right to retirement.
- The right to a good education.
- The right to modern communications and transportation.
- The right to reparations.
Ed. Note: When the elites are taking their marching orders from the Communist Party, it should be a sign that things are going to be changing dramatically.
3. FORMER COUNTER-TERRORISM OFFICER WARNS NEXT 9-11 MAY COME FROM WITHIN: Ex-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said that law enforcement should take the upcoming September 18 Capitol rally (that supports January 6 detainees) “very seriously.” In a Washington Post opinion piece, former counterterrorism officer Jason M. Blazakis warned, “America’s radical right extremists and Afghanistan’s Taliban might seem like polar opposites, but their approach to financing, recruiting, propagandizing, and fighting are surprisingly similar. The connective tissue is a desire to crush the system, whether the U.S. government or the general world order…As the United States prepares to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, we must confront the real possibility that our next 9/11 could arrive from within.”
Ed. Note: When the intelligence community starts warning of a coming attack it is clear they are preparing us for their next “false flag” event. In last week’s Behind the Scenes video, we explained why we wouldn’t be surprised if a false flag event occured soon. Don’t be deceived. Whatever the atrocity is, it may likely be at the hands of our own government.
4. MANDATES IN THE U.S. AND EUROPE: Biden dictated that OSHA require all health care providers, contractors doing business with the federal government, and businesses with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccinations or weekly testing, or face stiff fines, impacting over 100 million workers. Biden bragged, “Some of the biggest companies are already requiring this – United Airlines, Disney, Tyson Foods, and even Fox News.” Biden also ended the loophole that allowed unvaccinated federal workers to be regularly tested instead. Biden stated, “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us.”
The TSA will double fines for those who refuse to wear masks on airplanes, trains, buses, and other forms of public transportation.
United Airlines is now placing employees with medical or religious exemptions on “unpaid leave.” Los Angeles has become the first school district to mandate vaccines for all students 12 and older.
Switzerland is now requiring people to show a Covid-status certificate to enter many venues. After previously calling vaccine passports a “conspiracy theory,” the U.K. is mandating vaccine passports for nightclubs and large venues.
Ed. Note: It is much easier to stand with a crowd than to stand alone. Make sure you are connected to many likeminded people in your area and decide ahead of time what price you are willing to pay. If they are really going to fire you, start making a list of other possible ways to provide for yourself.
5. COVID TYRANNY IS EVEN WORSE IN AUSTRALIA: New South Wales Chief Health officer Dr. Kerry Chant endorsed booster shots saying, “We need to get used to being vaccinated with COVID vaccines for the future…I can’t see COVID not being with us forever.” Chant also said the country will implement booster shots in “a regular cycle of vaccination and revaccination…”
Dan Andrews, the premier for the Australian state of Victoria, says Australia must move past keeping “everybody locked down” to “locking out” the unvaccinated from normal life. South Australia is implementing a home-based quarantine experiment app that will “will contact people at random asking them to provide proof of their location within 15 minutes,” according to ABC.
Ed. Note: They are serious about their “Great Reset” and will continue to take as much ground as possible in eliminating our freedoms and gathering more power for themselves.
6. TOP AUSTRALIAN HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY COVID RESTRICTIONS ARE PART OF “NEW WORLD ORDER”: Dr. Kerry Chant made this shocking admission in a press conference: “We will be looking at what contact tracing looks like in the New World Order, and yes, it will be in pubs and clubs and other things…” New South Wales Health minister Brad Hazzard also stated, “That’s the way it is. We’ve got to accept that this is the New World Order.”
Ed. Note: Not too many years ago anyone that used the term, “New World Order” was labeled a kook conspiracy nut.
7. COVID FACT VS. PROPAGANDA: The CDC revised its definition of a “vaccine,” noting that the previous definition “could be interpreted to mean that vaccines are 100% effective.” The American Medical Association is instructing members to replace Covid-related terms like “lockdown” with “stay-at-home order” and “hospitalization rates” with “deaths.”
While preparing to roll out its fourth shot, one of the world’s most vaccinated nations, Israel, is experiencing its worst numbers since the start of Covid-19. Information obtained by The Intercept confirms that Fauci (despite his lies to Congress) did, indeed, support gain-of-function research for the Wuhan laboratory. Rolling Stone ran a now-debunked article about an Oklahoma hospital that they claimed was overrun with people “overdosing on horse dewormer.” An Ohio family is angry after their grandfather died after being denied Ivermectin, despite a judge’s order.
Ed. Note: Don’t ever expect the media that is always lying about everything to magically start speaking truth in the middle of a manufactured “crisis.” I’ve observed over my life that is the very time that the propaganda is turned up a level or two.
8. GUN CONTROL AND KNIFE CONTROL: David Frum penned an article in The Atlantic entitled, “How to Persuade Americans to Give Up Their Guns.” Frum lamented that Americans bought over 23 million firearms in 2020. Frum’s claimed, “Guns everywhere engender violence everywhere…” In New Zealand, some supermarkets enacted a self-imposed “knife control” policy, removing knives and scissors from shelves after an Islamic terrorist stabbing attack in the country.
Ed. Note: The reason why the Left is wrong on every issue is because they think man is naturally good, so he can be perfected. The Bible tells us that the heart of man is what is evil. If you take away the guns, they’ll use knives. If you take away the knives, they’ll use hammers. If you take away the hammers, they’ll use their cars and drive down the sidewalks at high speed. If you take away……you get the idea. The gospel is the only solution, because it changes the heart of man when he is born again and yet the Left is trying to remove all signs of Christianity from our culture. That means the future will be full of death and destruction.
9. AFGHANISTAN: Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned that the “ground has been laid” for a genocide of Afghan Christians. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) says that up to 1,000 Americans may still be stranded in Afghanistan. Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.), who joined a failed rescue mission to evacuate stranded Americans, said the Biden Administration “would never let us in Afghanistan.” The Biden Administration is asking Congress for $6.4 billion to resettle 95,000 Afghans. The State Department has already flown in at least 23,876 Afghans. China is negotiating with the Taliban to potentially take over the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
Ed. Note: It’s hard to overstate just how much the Biden Administration hates America and hates Christianity.
10. THREE SIGNS OF MORAL AND SPIRITUAL DECLINE: Around 53% of American women now have their first child out of wedlock. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his faux “husband” announced that they are “adopting” twins.
Reuters reported, “The world’s three main Christian leaders [Pope Francis, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, and Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew] issued an unprecedented joint appeal to members of their Churches to ‘listen to the cry of the earth’ and back action to stem the effects of climate change.”
Ed. Note: None of this is accidental. As Communist Willi Munzburg of the German Frankfurt School said, “We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks.” Leftists want to create a moral vacuum in the family so that the state can then step up to raise the children. That was their goal all along.
THE FREEDOM AGENDA
1. PRO-LIFE ADVANCES: With the implementation of Texas’s pro-life bill (which has infuriated liberals), three out of four abortion mills in San Antonio, Texas, are no longer killing babies. According to Rasmussen, 46% of likely U.S. voters support the new law, while 43% oppose it. Thousands in the U.K. joined the youth-dominated March for Life, with the slogan “Life at conception.”
2. THE BIBLE SPREADS ACROSS THE GLOBE: YouVersion founder Bobby Gruenewald told Premier Christian News, “With new methodologies and technology that’s improved the speed of Bible translation, we think it’s possible in most of our lifetimes here by 2033, to be able to see…the entire Bible, translated in 95% of the languages.”
3. LEGAL ACTION AGAINST COVID VACCINE MANDATES: After Liberty Counsel threatened Methodist Health System in Texas with a letter, the System responding by granting several religious exemptions to employees. Joe Rogan is considering suing CNN after a reporter claimed that he took “horse dewormer” to treat Covid-19. After Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich warned the city of Tucson that their mandate violated state law and threatened that the city could lose “millions of dollars” in state funding, city leaders backed off.
4. AUSTRALIAN PASTORS AND TRUCKERS STAND UP: Almost 2,800 Australian Church pastors and leaders have signed the “Ezekiel Declaration,” which articulates a Biblical case against vaccine passports. The South Australian government has backed off on its requirement that all interstate truck drivers must have had one Covid shot before entering the state.
5. WORKERS, POLICE, FIREFIGHTERS, AND FIRST RESPONDERS RESIST VACCINE MANDATES: Almost three-fourths of unvaccinated Americans would lose their job rather than take the Covid-19 vaccine. Over 200 police officers (or 20% of the force) could be forced out of the already-struggling Seattle Police Department over the mayor’s vaccine mandate.
First responders in Oregon are suing the state and governor for imposing vaccine mandates. A large group of police and firefighters in Los Angeles are resisting vaccine mandates for workers in the city. In a statement on its website, “Firefighters 4 Freedom” noted, “Our goal is to stop the mandated vaccinations for all city employees as well as the citizens of this great country. We want to bring education and truth to the people without being censored.”
6. BACKLASH AGAINST BIDEN’S NEW VACCINE MANDATES: At least 19 Republican Governors have issued statements opposing Biden’s mandate and have threatened further legal and legislative action. Rep Thomas Massie tweeted, “This is absolutely unconstitutional. OSHA has no more authority to enforce this (there’s no statutory authorization) than CDC had to issue the eviction moratorium. Which is to say they both have ZERO authority to do these things. Congress makes the laws in a constitutional republic.” Representative Chip Roy (R-Texas) said, “Those businesses should openly rebel against any such rule.”
The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association called the mandate a coercive act that “villainizes employees.”
7. VICTORY BOYD EXPLAINS WHY SHE REFUSED THE VACCINE: Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Victory Boyd was scheduled to perform at the National Anthem at the NFL’s season-opening game in Tampa, Florida, but was canceled after she refused to take the jab. Boyd explained her reasoning:
“The Bible admonishes Christians to appreciate their bodies as being sacred and a temple of the Holy Spirit and to not participate in things that can defile the body or render the body dysfunctional.”
“I am in prayer to make sure that the Lord guides me into the right decision concerning receiving an unproven injection with artificial properties that can potentially have a long-term effect on my reproductive health.
“If I want to take the vaccine, the decision will be between myself, my doctor, and my God. At this point, the Spirit of God is leading me to take a stand for freedom of choice.”
HYMN OF THE WEEK
COME THOU FOUNT OF EVERY BLESSING
BY ROBERT ROBINSON
Come thou fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace.
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise!
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above!
Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love
Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Hither by Thy help I’ve come.
And I hope by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home!
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God!
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord I feel it!
Prone to leave the God I love!
Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it;
Seal it for Thy courts above!
