GOD’s Own Fool, Part 2

I sent a text to all my kids that read: “You need to get a mask on before you fly anywhere. I swear this Ebola thing is orchestrated… I’d appreciate it if you don’t breathe on me for 25 fricking days!!!”

I figure the NSA has already intercepted it and turned on my beeper…

Dear Lord, I’ve turned into a conspiracy theorist…!

My yearly jaunt through the Bible has me currently reading Jeremiah and Isaiah at the same time. I love this yearly routine! As the nights get longer and the days get colder, my old prophet friends keep me cheered up with scathing warnings to the distracted population, who are caught up in the revelry and self-indulgence of their culture! If only you knew what I was talking about, and could understand the irony of the joke!

My eldest daughter saw me dedicate my life to Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God of the universe. She saw the difference it made in my life, as Jesus systematically undid every knot I had ever made in my life. Jesus set me free of every chain, every fear, every sin, every heart break… And then Jesus satisfied me with himself. Nothing else added. Focus on Jesus – eternal perspective.

A pastor once told me that I had spent so much time isolated with Jesus that my intensity was a beacon – another told me to keep my face veiled so I wouldn’t frighten people. My best friend pastor told me that my crazed sense of humor took him by surprise when we first met; but after getting to know me he determined that I was the sanest person he knew. I thought Jesus talked to everyone…(?)

Oh, but he does! Not everyone listens!

As Ebola patients pour out of the Dark Continent in desperate attempts to survive the virus that kills 90% of its victims, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the Ebola outbreak is unlike anything since the AIDS epidemic,[1] which didn’t prove to be an effective enough killer for the globalist eugenics program.[2] Lab weaponized Ebola was perfected through a United Nations testing program in western Africa.[3] Obama has given the go ahead to keep U.S. southern borders and flights from infected countries open – meaning American citizens are about to be exposed to a horrible killing disease, that may or may not be air borne.[4] Meanwhile, customs agents complain of improper training or equipment to deal with potentially infected passengers;[5] Marine Corps drills are focused on pandemic preparations;[6] airplane cabin cleaners are picketing outside LaGuardia Airport over health and safety issues;[7] sick nurses are popping up all over the planet;[8] and radio and news reports are over the top with sensationalism.[9] It all screams of staged orchestration.

Don’t forget the executive order Obama signed in early August. It orders officials to detain Americans with any signs of ‘Respiratory Illnesses.’ [10]  Although Ebola was listed on the original executive order signed by Bush, Obama’s amendment ensures that Americans who merely show signs of respiratory illness, with the exception of influenza, can be forcibly detained by medical authorities. Who knew?!

Think about it. Throughout history, “leaders” have enacted genocide in order to gain power. It is nothing new, so is therefore possible. The last vestiges of western culture are under attack, disguised as politically correct propaganda, a vendetta against founding American concepts, and a mocking curse for all things Christian and/or Jewish. Anyone who spends time reading the Bible is not surprised.

I hope your family “go to” plans are securely in place.

Go on and say what you are thinking, “You are crazy, lady!” Perhaps so – but the grim reaper of pestilence isn’t nearly as friendly.

The Rest of the World Already Knows

And so you became a model to all the believers… The Lord’s message rang out… your faith in God has become known everywhere… ~ 1 Thessalonians 1:7-8

Are we fighting for our kids’ and grandkids’ souls, as a shepherd would fight for a lamb? Amos 3:11-13

Have we any concept of the fiery furnace Daniel and his friends endured? Daniel 3

For those of you who have graduated from state run media to conservative radio personalities and Fox News – congratulations! Guess what?! It is time for your graduate degree!!

WND, Infowars, Drudge, Breitbart, The New American, New Zeal, BBC, and Russia Today will tell you what the rest of the globe already knows… The New World Order is already here!!! Satan already has the helm of not just our nation; he is operating openly all over the world. American citizens are the last to know…

No U.S. election is going to fix the corruption. We have crossed every political exit there was, barreling along at breakneck speed. Kingdoms have already been awarded to dark minions.

We must prepare now. The only thing that will be left standing against evil is the Body of Christ.

We are a city on a hill, a shining beacon of light for all mankind. We will be seen around the globe as we stand against the beast in the Holy name of Jesus the Christ, LORD of All, King of Kings, from everlasting to everlasting.

You, Lord Jesus, are savior and friend, Giver of Life, seen and unseen, Righteous and Other.

Help us believe. Help us see and comprehend. Our hearts beat because you animate us.

Pour your Holy Spirit out on your church around the world. Remove the wolves from among the sheep. Convict our hearts of our great national sins, our great apathy, our mocking hearts and minds. Pierce your people with your presence. Humiliate our pride and rebellion. Convict us, O Lord, so that we might repent at the foot of your cross, embracing the horror of our own lack of personal responsibility and duty, according to the Word you so graciously provided for us.

Weep and mourn and sit in sack cloth and ashes. Sit in silence waiting for judgment. We are guilty. Our eyes are focused on everything other than Jesus. Our thoughts of GOD are small and powerless. We have assigned the name of Jesus a bit part in the historical poetry genre, placing you as an equal to all other gods. Rend our hearts. Scourge our conscience. Clear our minds.

Blow the trumpet… sound the alarm… Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand. Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. ~ Joel 2:1, 13

Listen! The sound of trumpets in the heavens! Our GOD lives! Our GOD reigns! Our GOD is triumphant and true!

Father, thank you for offering your son in our place of guilt.

Jesus, thank you for choosing to die a horrible death to purchase us from darkness – that same shadow that prowls the earth looking for any shred of goodness to corrupt and twist and deceive. As we lay hold of your feet, Jesus, your strength and power lays hold of us.

Holy Spirit, thank you for dwelling among us – in our very hearts and minds. Your embrace, O Lord, is overwhelming. We hunger and thirst for you.

Fill us. Cleanse us. Renew us.

In the image of Jesus Christ, enable us to rise in unity, in the everlasting glory of His Holy Name, so that every knee bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is the Great I AM.

Humans are coming on highways, byways, bikes and boats. Humans have always migrated in search of water. Look at Detroit. Are they driving people out on purpose by not providing access to water? Play current events out to completion… This is how civilizations have collapsed since the beginning of time.

Tortured Lives

Featured Image:  Ellice Park, “Home Airing (Dirty) Laundry,” 2012

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. — 1 Peter 2:24

It has been a while since my spirit was humbled by a 20-something – Ellice Park did just that.  Her testimony of faith in the Holy Spirit’s leading and her willingness to sacrifice herself for Jesus left fresh wounds in the hard inner core of my soul – and I am grateful.  These are the stripes that heal and refocus…

Ellice’s Korean peninsula refugee stories are brutal and terrifying, reflecting the tyranny of total depravity.  She clearly expressed what happens when a culture eliminates the higher authority of God from entering the halls of governance.  The curses of Deuteronomy 28 are not a magic spell cast by an angry God upon humanity – they are the devastating consequences of humanity rejecting God.  The unthinkable has become reality for a whole ethnicity in the Far East, horrors beyond the imaginations of even the most vile gore flicks so popular with the youth of our culture.

When we silently sit by and accept the incremental assaults on our human liberties handed out by tyrannical governments, we can expect no less.  Agenda 21, Common Core Curriculum, Carbon Exchanges, the Patriot Act, Obamacare, the LGBT Agenda, Illegal Immigration, IRS Targeting, Federal Land Grabs – all these issues and more are enslaving our population just as surely as the evil in North Korea snuffs out every shred of good and truth that survives.  Out of control power murders without hesitation.

The corruption of US governmental authority is being systematically blurred by a complicit media and apathetic population.  Who even knows anymore that the ONLY job of any civil government is to protect the God-given rights of it’s citizens…?!

American citizens and Christians across the globe MUST stand against the darkness, or consign our progeny to the same tortures.  This era has the immense responsibility of upholding the foundations of the United States.  As Founding Father John Adams once cried,  “Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom!  I hope you will make a good use of it.  If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.” 

Praise the King of Kings for providing the way!  Praise Jesus for sending his disciples into the darkness!   Jesus was, indeed, pierced for our transgressions!  He died to set us free!  FREEDOM is calling the hearts and minds of every image bearer to action.  Resist the temptation to be silenced…

I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me and that all will then go well for them and for their children after them. — Jeremiah 32:39

Christ Prevails Over Economic Uncertainty

Monday, April 14, 2014
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Everyday we see and hear about the ever changing condition of our economy. Many are trying all the latest money making, saving, or sheltering programs that are nothing more than untested and unproven gimmicks that do nothing to point the way to financial stability.

Bob Ostrander will share his vision to bring clarity, confidence, and financial freedom through a biblically proven program that will provide a sound financial future no matter what happens to the economy. His life’s work is focused on helping believers effectively improve their stewardship of God’s resources so they have the ability to further support and advance God’s Kingdom.

Robert V.R. Ostrander has been engaged in the practice of financial planning for almost 40 years. As one of the pioneers in this industry, Bob served as the founding president of the local society for the Institute of Certified Financial Planners (ICFP). Prior to this, he held the office of president for the Central Ohio International Association of Financial Planners (IAFP). Bob holds multiple financial industry licenses in addition to his Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation. http://centerpointstewardship.com

Ellice Park on North Korean Refugees

Monday, April 7, 2014
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

UALC – The Church at Mill Run, Room 2031 or 3002 (check lobby sign – room could change)   3500 Mill Run Drive, Hilliard, OH

One of our youngest FOOF members will be sharing her art ministry to North Korean refugees!  

Considering how our culture has shifted so much in the past 12 months towards open hostility for Christians, this is a must come event!!  

Ellice recently spent time in Asia ministering to refugees.  She will speak a bit and share a couple stories about life under the total tyranny of the brutal North Korean dictator, and the efforts of the Christian church there to flourish under oppression.  Maybe we can slip into the sanctuary so she can play the piano to do a small performance, and play a couple hymns and sing in Korean, while the rest of us sing in English !  

This summer, Ellice has been invited to minister to Korean-Chinese persons with displaced families and abandonment issues in China, as a visiting artist and art therapist.  

Ellice supports her ministry through donations and by selling art she designs, and asks that you consider supporting her.

She would love for us to visit her Facebook page to view her videos, where she has shared accounts of her grandmother’s escape.  Everything on her site is meant to be shared! Here are her links:

Sit Still and Be Quiet

It took me 3 years of constant practice to learn how to sit still and really LISTEN to God!  Then a preacher friend pulled out a pad of paper and wrote a prescription.

Rx for Listening:   Psalm 46:10 – 3 X a day for 4 consecutive weeks

Perhaps current events would dictate that it is time for all of us to listen…

Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth.  He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Persecution coming for American Christians?!

Aside

Congratulations to all the graduates of the IOTC U.S. Constitution course!!
Of the 61 people enrolled in the class, 27 of them completed the requirements to be awarded with the title of “United States Constitutionist”!
What an accomplishment!!

We look forward to the upcoming IOTC Leadership Training event on Saturday, March 29, 2014  – 10 AM-3 PM

WHERE:  Upper Arlington Lutheran Church, 2300 Lytham Road, Upper Arlington, Ohio 43220   (Link to map for UALC Lytham – http://www.ualc.org/campuses)

 You do not have to be IOTC graduates to attend.  It is easier to understand the materials if you have taken the course, but it is not required.  You will “get it” as we proceed through the lessons.   This leadership training is the road map for restoration of our Constitutional Republic! It will help us understand teaching principles we need to multiply the message of properly understanding the Constitution by exposing the Biblical Worldview of America’s Founders, namely that:

  • There is a God, the God of the Bible
  • Our rights come from Him, and
  • The purpose of civil government is to secure our God-given rights.

Now on to all the links and information I promised.

 *FIRST:  You all MUST listen to this message from Eric Waters

  2. Read our Bibles
  3. Be and make Disciples of Jesus

Following quickly on that, here is the link to the “Sin of Silence.”  Very powerful.  Click on “The Sin of Silence” (audio).  It may take a while to download.

Institute on the Constitution (IOTC) Leadership Training

Ricki Pepin will be teaching the IOTC Leadership Training course here in Columbus for graduates of the IOTC U.S. Constitution course! Please mark your calendars for Saturday, March 29, 2014, 10 AM – 3 PM. I need a head count of attendees, so we can supply the needed materials. Married couples can share. Please CONTACT US if you plan to attend.

WHEN:  Saturday, March 29, 2014 – 10 AM-3 PM
WHERE:  Upper Arlington Lutheran Church
2300 Lytham Road
Upper Arlington, Ohio 43220
Link to map for UALC Lytham – http://www.ualc.org/campuses

You do not have to be IOTC graduates to attend.  It is easier to understand the materials if you have taken the course, but it is not required.  You will “get it” as we proceed through the lessons.

This leadership training is the road map for restoration of our Constitutional Republic! It will help us understand teaching principles we need to multiply the message of properly understanding the Constitution by exposing the Biblical Worldview of America’s Founders, namely that:

  •   There is a God, the God of the Bible
  •   Our rights come from Him, and
  •   The purpose of civil government is to secure our God-given rights.

The class will run on Saturday, March 29th from 10 AM – 3 PM.

Ricki asks all to arrive no later than 9:45 AM so we can get materials to you and actually START the class by 10 AM.

Tuition and lunch money will be collected as you arrive for class and get materials. A box lunch can be purchased for $10 (lunch details to follow later), but we make no time to go out and get lunch, so if students do not purchase the box lunch, be sure to pack one. We have a “working lunch” – only about a 15 minute break before getting back into my teaching. (Students can continue eating at this time, only Ricki needs to be done!)

Minimum purchase for materials is $40. This includes:

  • 130-page Teacher’s Manual – “U. S. Constitution and Principle Approach Teacher’s ‘FEET’ Manual”;
  • CD with all the documents of this “Feet” Manual;
  • DVD entitled “Multiplying the Message.”

Couples can share one set. There will be other optional materials available for purchase as well, so bring extra cash/check (no credit card capability). On the day of class, please bring your IOTC Student Manual (if you have one), and if anyone has already purchased a Host Kit, also bring along the small manual entitled, “Host Lecture Kit.” This contains the answer key (and a few other goodies) for the Student Manual. Ricki will have a few “loaners” to give out for class time, but not enough for all.

Ricki will be teaching using the Eidsmoe IOTC Leadership Materials, not the Peroutka materials. However, they are similar enough that bringing Peroutka materials will still be helpful. Eidsmoe would be best. We’ll be discussing the differences between Eidsmoe & Peroutka in class to enable students to figure out which they would prefer to use.

Registration deadline is March 15th, so invite your friends now to ensure enough time to print or order sufficient materials.
