Heidi Baker Prophetic Insight


John R. Houk

September 26, 2021 (UPDATED 9/27/21)

As a subscriber to the NWO REPORT, I was alerted yesterday (9/25) to a post by Michael Snyder which was a 9/23 cross post entitled, ‘New Heidi Baker Prophecy: “Suffering Like You’ve Never Seen” Is Coming’. The title caught my attention. My first thought was the subject matter would be about Christians suffering under a fraudulent Dem-Marxist regime.

Snyder is referencing the Supernatural Life Conference in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania that took place between 9/22/21 to 9/25/21. Snyder references a prophetic speaking moment by Heidi Baker on a little over 3-hour Youtube video. Baker is introduced at about the 47-minute or so mark at which point she communes in the Spirit for over 20-minutes to get to the point Snyder references in his title.

Frankly I am not so sure the emphasis should be on a “coming suffering” as much as Heidi Baker informing Believers be prepared to be RIGHT with God Almighty for God stands with those who listen to God in Spirit and Truth (i.e. His Word). I’ll let you decide.

New Heidi Baker Prophecy: “Suffering Like You’ve Never Seen” Is Coming

Time Ending Almost Midnight

By Michael Snyder

September 23, 2021 10:29pm 

End Of The American Dream

We have received plenty of warnings, but most people simply do not want to listen.  Earlier today, I learned that Heidi Baker just had a supernatural experience which really shook her up, and considering her track record this should deeply alarm all of us.  Of course most people will see articles like this and just shrug them off.  Because of all the fakes that are out there, most people don’t even realize that there are actually people that have very real supernatural encounters with God.  Heidi Baker is one such person, and while she was in Tennessee recently she was shown that “suffering like you’ve never seen” is coming to America

“I was groaning, and I realized I was groaning for America,” Baker says. “I started seeing it, and it was showing me His glory. But He was also showing me suffering like you’ve never seen. I said to the Lord, ‘they don’t want to hear it, they don’t want to see it.’ And he said to me, ‘Are you to going tell them, who are you? You said you would go anywhere and say anything.

“I said, ‘Lord, I’m so, so sorry, I will go if you ask me. I lay my life before you.’ I was seeing shaking, but I saw His glory. All I can say is that you had better fix your eyes on Jesus. This is not a time to play games. There is darkness covering the earth, huge darkness, but the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Hold on and stay in your lane. Remove the judgment you have on the body of Christ. If you have judgment, you are going to be missing a piece you need to move in these days.”

One thing that I appreciate about Heidi is that she is always very honest about her immediate reactions to such experiences.

When she told the Lord that “they don’t want to hear it, they don’t want to see it”, it was a very honest assessment from her heart.

Of course she is quite right about that.  The churches of America don’t want to hear these sorts of warning messages, and that has been true for a very long time.

It is also true that we are to deliver the warnings whether people want to hear them or not, and in this experience the Lord reminded Heidi that she needs to follow His leading.

Perhaps you are reading this and you are tempted to dismiss what Heidi Baker experienced.

I would not do that if I were you.

Several years ago, Heidi Baker had another supernatural experience in which she was shown very long food lines inside the United States…

I saw this bread line, long bread lines, and I said, “Lord, I don’t think that is popular to say in a church, especially one that is all about revival and victory and power.”

I didn’t want to see what I saw, but I saw what I saw so, I was so undone that I just said what I saw. And I saw all these people and they had beautiful cars, 4 by 4’s and Lexus, Mercedez, BMW’s, Toyotas. There they were with fancy shiny cars, but they were standing in line.

She was very puzzled by what she was seeing, and so she asked the Lord about it

I asked, “Why are they so well dressed and standing in this line?”

He said, “Because it is a suddenly. They are suddenly in need of food.”

At first, her vision seemed like nonsense to a lot of people.

But then 2020 came along, and we witnessed absolutely massive food lines all over America after the pandemic broke out.  In fact, a local news report from Oakland actually listed several of the specific types of vehicles that Heidi saw in her original vision…

“They start lining up as early as seven in the morning and this will run for six straight hours” said Altfest.

Hundreds of cars slowly snake their way through the parking lot across from the Acura dealership on Interstate 880. Folks from all walks of life driving everything from Toyota’s, BMW’s, to Mercedes, all coming to get food. Folks are grateful for the charity.

What Heidi Baker saw in that vision became a reality, and what Heidi Baker saw during this latest experience will become a reality too.

But most people will mock the idea that disaster is coming up until the moment when it actually strikes.

And it came way too close to striking on September 16th

A large asteroid as wide as the wingspan of a Boeing 747 passed by the Earth recently – and scientists didn’t even see it coming.

Dubbed 2021 SG, according to the NASA-backed International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center, the asteroid has a diameter of anywhere between 42-94 meters, with an average diameter of 68 meters, which is around the wingspan of a 747, the height of the Cinderella Castle in Disney World and around half the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

They didn’t see it coming in advance.

So many times I have warned my readers that our scientists can’t see a lot of the giant space rocks up there, and this is just the latest example that proves my point.

Despite all of our advanced technology, we continue to be exceedingly vulnerable, and we desperately need God’s grace and protection.

Unfortunately, our nation continues to run away from God as fast as it can.  Earlier today, I came across some new poll numbers that are absolutely stunning…

The survey by the centrist Marquette Law School, released Wednesday, comes on the heels of Texas’s new ban on abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.

Just 20 percent of 1,411 respondents to Marquette’s poll favors overturning Roe v. Wade, with 50 percent opposed and 29 percent reporting that they had no opinion.

Two other polls also wanted to keep the status quo. In a poll by Monmouth University, 62 percent of 802 Americans said Roe v. Wade should be left as-is, and 67 percent of respondents said they ‘generally agree’ with the Supreme Court ruling.

Despite all of the warnings about what is going to happen to this country if we don’t change our ways, we continue to steamroll down a path toward judgment.

There are many men and women of God such as Heidi Baker that are sounding the alarm, but at this point only a very small fraction of the population is listening.

In fact, the vast majority of the churches in this country want absolutely nothing to do with the warnings.

For now, Americans are shaking their fists at God, and many believe that the party will go on indefinitely.

But as Heidi Baker has warned, eventually there will be no time left.

Discovering Asia Bibi


Asia Bibi 2021

John R. Houk

© July 23, 2021

Do you recall the persecution of Pakistani-Christian Asia Bibi? In case you have forgotten or never heard of her ordeal, she was a Pakistani-Christian laborer who dared to quench her thirst from an apparently Muslim-only well. The offended Muslims engaged in epithets against Asia’s faith which landed her in a no-win situation for Pakistan is an Islamic Republic. This means extolling any faith other than Islam is blasphemy. AND in Pakistan the penal code requires the death penalty.

The thing about life in Pakistan and the blasphemy penal code is that unscrupulous Muslims often use the blasphemy accusation to settle personal disputes with Christians (and other non-Muslim faiths) or to acquire the rare piece of property a poverty stricken Pakistani-Christian might own.

I was so enraged of the religious persecution Asia Bibi received, that included roughly a decade on Pakistan’s death row, that I dedicated much blog time to her plight and other persecuted Christian in Pakistan.

You can read the SlantRight 2.0 posts with this tag-search (sadly may not show up in order of date posted). One can also search my WordPress version blog (NCCR) and find similar Asia Bibi posts (also not sequential).

As you can probably surmise, Asia eventually secured freedom death row and asylum away from Pakistan much to the chagrin of bloodthirsty Pakistani-Muslims who actually rioted over her freedom.

I recently ran into a Breaking Christian News story  dated 7/22/21 that was a CBN News pickup of Asia Bibi speaking via video to International Religious Freedom Summit. I took a look at the speaker list and was disappointed and discouraged many of the speakers were godless prominent Dem-Marxist Trump-haters. And yes I used the word “godless” even many of these Dem-Marxist profess a Christian faith but went out of their to support immoral platforms such as abortion, the LGBTQ movement, Communist atheistic principles (e.g.: BLM, CRT, Church lockdowns, etc. & etc.).

ERGO, I probably do not place much stock in the International Religious Freedom Summit as a paragon of Christian virtue or Religious Liberty for that matter. BUT Asia Bibi is a woman who stood for Christ even if it meant her death. AND FOR THAT, Asia Bibi is a Christian hero of faith.

Because Asia Bibi is a Christian hero you should think of picking up her most recent book relating her death row, freedom and asylum. The book was first published in French (A French co-writer) under a title that translated into English as “Finally Free” that was released in early 2020. English speakers as I am, can pick the English translation that came out in late 2020 under the title, “Free at Last”.

Instead of cross posting the BCM article where I discovered this Asia Bibi update, I am using the CBN original which can be read below.

‘A Messenger from God’: The Amazing Way God Visited Asia Bibi in Prison – Now She’s a Voice of Hope Too

By CBN News [staff]

July 21, 2021

CBN News

Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi, who spent nearly a decade on death row after being falsely accused of blasphemy against Islam, wants to be a voice of hope for other persecuted Christians.

As CBN News has reported, Bibi was convicted and sentenced in 2010 after a coworker accused her of insulting Islam after a dispute. Blasphemy is a crime punishable by death in Pakistan.

The 50-year-old addressed the International Religious Freedom Summit last Wednesday via video message, thanking God for her freedom and acknowledging those who prayed for her while she was imprisoned.

“From the bottom of my heart I am very thankful to the Lord, who has rescued me from my sufferings and difficulties,” she said. “He has given me a fresh start and the opportunity to start a new life with my family.”

Bibi added that she “wants to be a voice for Christian people, Christians in prison, and in difficulties.”

She recalled how her faith overshadowed her fear.

“When I was in prison, I was very worried about my children and husband. I was not aware where they were and whether they were safe or not. At the same time, I had a hope in the Lord,” Bibi explained. “Thanks to all of the brothers and sisters who prayed and fasted. Because of their prayers, I am now free.”

Bibi has previously shared a remarkable story about an encounter with a bird that would routinely visit her when she was in her darkest moments in prison. She believed the bird was a message from God as a means to strengthen her faith.

“There is a beautiful thing that happens every day in my cell,” she explained. “Two days after they announced my death penalty, I was brought into (death row). Every morning around 3:30 or 4, a brown bird with a long beak appears and sits on the boundary wall. This bird also comes every evening around 5. He sits there for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening. Later on, he became my friend. I talk to him and he also talks to me.”

She continued, “As I watched this bird every day, I tried to understand the meaning of him coming day after day. I think this is a messenger from God giving me His message. When the bird comes, I feel encouraged and peaceful. I feel comforted after his visit. I think this is a very significant sign from God.”

Even though she was awaiting death in her cell, the bird brought her comfort and a glimmer of hope, just like God sent ravens to minister to Elijah when he was hiding from those who wanted to kill him.

The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening and would drink from the brook (1 Kings 17:6).

Ultimately Bibi was acquitted of the crime by the Pakistan Supreme Court but then was kept from leaving the country by officials even after a final bid from hardline Islamists to have her acquittal overturned was rejected.

Radical Muslims in Pakistan were outraged by the acquittal and threatened to murder her. Tens of thousands rallied in the streets and called for her death.

She was finally able to leave Pakistan in May of 2019 and was reunited with her daughters in Canada.

During the summit, Bibi pointed out that her “Christian brothers and sisters worked very hard for my freedom,” and said she is “very thankful to everyone from the bottom of my heart.”

“Let us join hands and stand together so we can be a voice for our Christian brothers and sisters who are suffering, and help them out of their situations,” she said. “Like the Lord did for me.”

In Feb. 2020, Bibi released a book about her years in prison titled, Finally Free.

In her new book, she writes about the daily persecution suffered by Pakistan’s Christian minority and gives an account of the demeaning and appalling conditions in the prison where she was confined.

It Could be Time to Re-Discover Christian Courage


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© July 15, 2021

My darling wife sent this to my email from her phone as an attachment. I have no idea who sent it her.

The attachment has a roughly one-sentence description on how several Apostles/Disciples of Jesus met their demise in this life. What strikes me is that these followers of Jesus met their end because they stood for God Almighty’s moral behavior and Salvation from Hell by believing on the Resurrected Lord Jesus Who transferred (ergo transformed) citizens from Satan’s dominion to citizenship in the Kingdom of God.

TODAY those who Believe in God’s Word in the Holy Bible and that America’s Founding was good because her citizens trusted Christian moral standards are being called domestic terrorists by the coup-installed Biden Administration.

If you think Christians and American Patriots concerned about their well-being on this one-time shining city on a hill is a conspiracy theory to be disregarded, you should CHECK OUT these facts ignored or hidden by America’s tyrants:

Will TODAY’s Christians have the same courage against ungodly authority the early Followers of Jesus displayed? I pray we Believers are overcomers even if it means paying a price in this life so our heritage hastens the return of Jesus and the Kingdom of God on Earth.

(Editor’s note: In full disclosure these martyrdom bios are not in the Bible but are from traditions that secular historians typically will not confirm due to a lack of documentation. There is kind of documentation that leads to credence is histories documentation of early Christian persecution until Roman Emperor Constantine embraced acceptance of the Christian faith in the 300s A.D. [Yup I still prefer Anno Domini – Year of our Lord, to the secular scholars C.E. – Christian Era now de-Christianized to Common Era].)

THE ATTACHMENT of Christian Courage

Very powerful and something to think about especially during these times…

HOW THE APOSTLES DIED.

1. Matthew

Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword wound.

2. Mark

Died in Alexandria, Egypt , after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.

3. Luke

Was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous Preaching to the lost.

4. John

Faced martyrdom when he was boiled in huge Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution In Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered From death.

John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic Book of Revelation on Patmos . The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey . He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully

5. Peter

He was crucified upside down on an x-shaped cross.

According to church tradition it was because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In the same way that Jesus Christ had died.

6. James

The leader of the church in Jerusalem , was thrown over a hundred feet down from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny his faith in Christ. When they discovered that he survived the fall, his

enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s club.

* This was the same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus during the Temptation.

7. James the Son of Zebedee,

was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong leader of the church, James was beheaded at Jerusalem. The Roman officer who guarded James watched amazed as James defended his faith at his trial. Later, the officer Walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he declared his new faith to the judge and Knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.

8. Bartholomew

Also known as Nathaniel Was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present day Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for his preaching in Armenia where he was flayed to death by a whip.

9. Andrew

Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras, Greece. After being whipped severely by seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross with cords to prolong his agony. His followers reported that, when he was led toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these words: ‘I have long desired and expected this happy hour. The cross has been consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it.’ He continued to preach to his tormentors For two days until he expired.

10. Thomas

Was stabbed with a spear in India during one of his missionary trips to establish the church in the Sub-continent.

11. Jude

Was killed with arrows when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.

12. Matthias

The apostle chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot, was stoned and then beheaded.

13. Paul

Was tortured and then beheaded by the evil Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write his many epistles to the churches he had formed throughout the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught many of the foundational Doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion of the New Testament.

Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our sufferings here are indeed minor compared to the intense persecution and cold cruelty faced by the apostles and disciples during their times For the sake of the Faith. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: But he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Thank you D.L. Blakeney

Destroying America on the Altar of Gender Identity


Barack (the treasonous-Dem) Obama on the eve of his 2008 election as POTUS told his supporters that his fellow traveler Dem-Marxists were about to fundamentally transform America. It turns out old Barry was only the transformation-seed planter. The Dem-Marxists control of Dementia-Joe and election crimes seeing the fruition of transformation-seeds spring from despotic-corrupt dirt. There is plenty of despotism transforming America with godless impunity. Justin Smith examines the LGBTQ corrupting fruit.

The LGBTQ seeds and fruit are particularly perditious because in order for that godless lifestyle to be normalized, God’s Word must be diluted to irrelevance which places a target on Biblical Christianity. (Hmm… One should wonder why Dem-Leftist-Marxist controlled States placed a premium on shutting down Christian Churches during the scamdemic that has a 99% survival rate.)

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality,

10 Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers and slanderers, nor extortioners and robbers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God.

As a reader, especially as a Christian – There are MANY corrupters of the Faith who will tell you not to believe what you read but rather believe what the corrupters tell you the (false) meaning of what you can read. Twisting Truth to mean something else is simply a Satanic lie. For the sake of Biblical clarity the Knowing Jesus website has a Scripture list from God’s Word entitled, “23 Bible Verses about Homosexuality”. At the end of the Justin submission I’ll cross post that list.

Destroying America on the Altar of Gender Identity

The LGBTQ Movement Seeks to Squash America’s Christian Founding

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/2/2021 10:05 PM

Gay identity became possible thanks to capitalism’s emancipatory side: its liberation of the individual from material dependence on the family. But that sexual freedom wasn’t automatic — it required decades of militant struggle. Today, we need more such struggles to combat the oppressive aspects of capitalism, which keep gay and straight people alike from living fully free lives.”   ~ John D’Emilio, gay rights activist, 1979

“Be gay and be happy.” My, my, my, how that sentence’s meaning has changed since I was a boy. “Gay” was generally accepted as meaning “lighthearted”, and it was primarily defined as such. Today, the first definition in all dictionaries names it as ” … characterized by sexual or romantic attraction to people of one’s same sex”. 

To hear many on the Left tell it, everybody and his brother wants to be “Gay” or “Transgendered” now – and being a part of the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgendered-Queer Community is better than having a scoop of chocolate ice-cream with Joe Biden. 

The homosexual and transgendered communities across the nation have never been content with just being able to be left alone and engage in their immoral, twisted, demented, deviant, perverted and immoral lifestyles. Since the 1960’s these mentally ill and gender dysphoric individuals have fought to force society to validate this diseased lifestyle and submit to its demands for such idiocy as changing the commonly accepted pronouns used in the English language and allowing biological men to compete in sports events against biological women; and even worse, they coach and push children of the youngest years to demand “gender transition”, with too many immoral judges all too willing to allow it, whether the parents support it or not, backed by corporations, politicians, schools, Hollywood, medical institutions and the media. 

Inauguration Day January 20, 2021; with President Trump’s seat in the Oval office not even cold yet, Joe Biden, always willing to accept the most outlandish policies from the Left, [JOS] signed his Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation, and in the process, he essentially expanded the definition of “sexual discrimination” for governmental purposes, to include gender identity and sexual orientation. He exhibited that he “had their (LGBTQ) back”, when he also directed all the executive agencies to correct and align their policies with his order as a tool and puppet in office for America’s “Gay Community”.

One might daresay that a decade ago, surely two decades ago, very few teachers or principles or politicians and government officials had ever heard of transgender or “gender identity”. But that has all changed in this current political environment that is hostile to America’s traditional virtues, values and principles, as the terms are broadly defined and often morph depending on the setting. There has never been a concise, definitive legal or logical definition of the term and most often, any definition are tautological and reference broad generalizations regarding a person’s own sense of self and psychological knowledge of their own gender. 

“Gender identity” has been marketed as something as normal as buying a new bike or pair of tennis shoes. [JOS] Children are being taught that they can choose to be either sex, depending on their feelings, rather than address the mental confusion and any issues that would even make them question their sexual identity in the first place.

Recent events, such as the suspension of Tanner Cross, a Loudon County, Virginia teacher and Governor Rick DeSantis (R-FL) signing the ‘Fairness in Women’s Sports Act’ (SB 1028), have further exposed the truth of the subversive, detrimental consequences American suffers at the hands of the LGBTQ community and those who advocate for its agenda. It’s all been a part of a much larger plan by the Communists to bring American society, the traditional family and the republic to its end, from the start, in order to give government greater control over America’s children, as one mechanism for placing and holding all America under a Marxist regime, as our Christian founding is systematically silenced, squashed and eradicated from any and all public forums and arenas.  

[Blog Editor: What happens when God-rejecting LGBTQ comingles with Communism in America?

On June 1, 2021; Governor Rick DeSantis raised a furor among the transgendered across the nation, stating:

We believe in the state of Florida, of protecting the fairness and the integrity of women’s athletics. And I can tell you this in Florida, you know, girls are going to play girls’ sports and boys are going to play boys’ sports, that’s what we’re doing. We’re going to make sure that that’s the reality. So the bill that we’re doing today will ensure fairness for women athletes for years to come in the state of Florida. It says that athletic teams or sports that are designated for females are open to females. And we’re going to go based off biology.”

On May 27, 2021; [JOS] Tanner Cross, who teaches at Leesburg Elementary School, was placed on administrative leave, for simply exercising his First Amendment right as an American and a Christian to state his firmly held conviction regarding any advocacy of the current delusion that people can and should be any sex that they believe themselves to be. He was addressing the topic in an open discussion before the Loudon County School Board that had requested a public discussion and input.

Tanner defiantly stated:

” … I am speaking out of love for those who are suffering from gender dysphoria

— whereupon he referenced a 60 Minutes segment focused on thirty young people harmed by being pushed to “transition” before continuing with –

It’s not my intention to hurt anyone, but there are certain truths that we must face when ready. We condemn school policies like 8040 and 8350 because it will damage children (and) defile the holy image of God. I love all of my students but I will never lie to them regardless of the consequences. I’m a teacher but I serve God first and I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl, and vice versa, because it’s against my religion. It’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child and it’s sinning against our God.”

Although I’m not a pastor nor have I ever played one on television, I learned at the feet of my dear ol’ Grandma Mamie, a teacher and a lay Pentecostal minister for most of her adult life, that the New Covenant found in Christianity through the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross offered us all redemption and salvation from our sins, if only we recognize His victory over death, profess our faith in Him as the One True God and ask sincere forgiveness of our sins. And this applies to any and all members of the “Gay Community” too, but it doesn’t mean they can ask for forgiveness one day and be out in the streets the next day brandishing their flamboyant rainbow flag as advertisement for homosexual encounters or having “Transgender Day” at public libraries across America.

Most Americans would be happy to let people be who they choose to be, but much like myself, we don’t accept or support their lifestyle, and we don’t want their unhappiness and beliefs to be used as an excuse to trample on our rights in a free society. As biological men and women, the LGBTQ of America have the same exact rights as anybody else, no more and no less, but their movement and the calls from Joe Biden and many state Governors, as well as executive orders, laws already passed and newly proposed “transgender equity” laws will grant the LGBTQ Community privilege over everybody else in America, to the detriment of all.

An interview from August 2020 reveals the full depths of the depraved nature of this movement, if only through this short segment, that [JOS] reads:

“… Meanwhile, when children are no longer necessary for survival, they begin to represent familial love and domestic happiness. They become symbolic of the success of the marriage. 

Once marriage changes its meaning in this way for people, critical questions are posed to all society: What kind of intimacy do you desire? What kind of partnership is going to emotionally fulfill you? Once these questions are posed to people en masse, new answers become possible.”

This transgender Gay Rights agenda has been accelerated and made rapid advancements on [JOS] large part due to initiatives and bills enacted during the Obama era, at the behest of leftist and queer advocate, Penny Pritzker, a billionaire and cousin to Illinois Governor JB Pritzker [Blog Editor: Pritzker transgender agenda: HERE & HERE], who issued [and] created [JOS] the Affirming and Inclusive Task Force in 2020 to supposedly improve the learning environment for transgender and otherwise “gay” students by affirming and supporting them. The movement was further advanced from 2010 to the present by foundations, such as George Soros’s Open Society and John Stryker’s Arcus Foundation, one of the largest LGBTQ non-governmental organizations in the United States that also drives gender identity ideology worldwide. And equally alarming, look deep enough and one finds that the Walt Disney Corporation has donated one hundred million dollars to children’s hospitals across America and Europe that have gender clinics for children and adolescents. 

The Open Society Foundation has been an extremely significant force and influence behind the gender identity nonsense in America, that seeks to normalize the transgendered and homosexual lifestyle in America, through its Human Rights Campaign and white papers such as ‘License to be Yourself: Trans Children and Youth’ and ‘Supporting & Caring for Transgender Children’. Unfortunately, many major pharmaceutical giants, major corporations, international banks and Big Tech are all supportive of the Soros initiatives. 

Similarly, the Arcus Foundation funds many research centers focused on children, while also advancing the notion that children can be born in the wrong sexed body, through documents such as ‘Improving Measurement of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Among Middle and High School Students’. One must also note that the Arcus Foundation supports Lambda Legal, an organization working to achieve the “full recognition of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals (and) transgender people …”, and all of the Arcus Foundation’s funding goes only to those willing to embrace the gender identity ideology.

One also finds influential subversives and deviants such as James Pritzker who is now known as “Jennifer” — Penny Pritzker’s cousin. Jennifer gave $1,760,635 in 2020 for “Gender Identity and Human Sexuality” through “her” Tawani Foundation. “She” has used “her” incredible wealth to purchase influence through paid lobbyists and politicians who do “her” bidding and drive gender identity programs into children’s schools. 

In the meantime, as the freaks, perverts and mentally ill descend on major cities around America to flaunt their queer nature and character in celebration of Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender Pride for the entire month of June, all America should take note of the major corporations who support disrespecting the American Flag and spitting upon America’s rich religious and predominantly Christian heritage. Watch them slobber all over themselves in their pro-LGBTQ advertisements, while they proudly adopt the colors of the Queer Rainbow Flag for their logos, as school systems, companies, city councils, universities, medical associations, and many churches too slobber right along with them splashing LGBTQ propaganda all over their social media sites and products. 

For anyone who fails to see that rights are only human and inalienable, not “gay”, I have nothing for you. The answers and solutions to this growing problem are just as self-evident as the inalienable rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights and those virtues and principles found in the Word of God and the Christian values upon which America was founded.

If America is to stop this one gargantuan assault on the nation, the fine, righteous and decent Americans must set the agenda from this point on, by refusing to allow the enemy from within to dictate the narrative, language, concepts and priorities on the political battlefields. They must stop the lobbyists’ and the massive and incredibly wealthy foundations’ influence in the halls of government, in large part by opening society’s eyes to the insanity and hate for America beneath this gender ideology, while simultaneously rejecting immoral candidates for all government offices, especially school boards, who advocate this Satanic crap, and the moral relativism of so many modern-day churches, that no longer teach the Gospel and the True Word of God. 

America must reject the further abuse of Her children — God’s Children — by the twisted, sick and warped deviant and perverted Democratic Party Communists within the country. No longer should anyone tolerate the growth and advancement of this sickness, this mental disease, because in toleration, one is complicit with the evil acts of these queers who are destroying our children’s bodies and America Herself at the altar of “gender identity” and “Gay Rights” where no such rights exist.

As one finds in Romans 1:18, 26, 27 and 32: 

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness … For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. … Who knowing the judgement of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

Most Relevant Verses [Verses quoted are the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Clicking the embedded verse link will list various English versions of that Scripture in the Bible.]

Leviticus 18:22

You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13

If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 1:9-11

realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted.

Romans 1:21-27

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.

Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

1 Kings 14:24

There were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord dispossessed before the sons of Israel.

1 Kings 15:12

He also put away the male cult prostitutes from the land and removed all the idols which his fathers had made.

2 Kings 23:7

He also broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes which were in the house of the Lord, where the women were weaving hangings for the Asherah.

Genesis 19:4-8

Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, all the people from every quarter; and they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.” But Lot went out to them at the doorway, and shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brothers, do not act wickedly. Now behold, I have two daughters who have not had relations with man; please let me bring them out to you, and do to them whatever you like; only do nothing to these men, inasmuch as they have come under the shelter of my roof.”

Genesis 19:5-7

and they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.” But Lot went out to them at the doorway, and shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brothers, do not act wickedly.

1 Corinthians 6:9

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,

Judges 19:16-24

Then behold, an old man was coming out of the field from his work at evening. Now the man was from the hill country of Ephraim, and he was staying in Gibeah, but the men of the place were Benjamites. And he lifted up his eyes and saw the traveler in the open square of the city; and the old man said, “Where are you going, and where do you come from?” He said to him, “We are passing from Bethlehem in Judah to the remote part of the hill country of Ephraim, for I am from there, and I went to Bethlehem in Judah. But I am now going to my house, and no man will take me into his house.

Yet there is both straw and fodder for our donkeys, and also bread and wine for me, your maidservant, and the young man who is with your servants; there is no lack of anything.” The old man said, “Peace to you. Only let me take care of all your needs; however, do not spend the night in the open square.” So he took him into his house and gave the donkeys fodder, and they washed their feet and ate and drank. While they were celebrating, behold, the men of the city, certain worthless fellows, surrounded the house, pounding the door; and they spoke to the owner of the house, the old man, saying, “Bring out the man who came into your house that we may have relations with him.” Then the man, the owner of the house, went out to them and said to them, “No, my fellows, please do not act so wickedly; since this man has come into my house, do not commit this act of folly. Here is my virgin daughter and his concubine. Please let me bring them out that you may ravish them and do to them whatever you wish. But do not commit such an act of folly against this man.”

Romans 1:18-32

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

1 Timothy 1:8-10

But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,

Jude 1:7

just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

Genesis 19:5

and they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have relations with them.”

The remnant of the sodomites who remained in the days of his father Asa, he expelled from the land.

Romans 1:26-27

1 Timothy 1:9

realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

We Want God Not the Equality Act


I ran into a bunch of posts I simply did not have time to share on my Blog. ERGO, today I will include this intro and cross post several shares that I pray YOU as well will share if you find the info of value.

 

This is my second cross post share of the day. The post is by John Horvat who essentially is a Roman Catholic Christian Apologist that I am certain annoys the Communist Pope Francis. Also, in full disclosure, I am a Protestant that is in the Charismatic/Word-of-Faith camp (a group that seems a bit unpopular on the Internet these days). If you are a Christian, Horvat’s take on the Dem-Marxist Equality Act will be invaluable. If you are a supporter of the godless Dem-Marxist agenda, you are in danger of an unwanted decent in the next stage of your existence.

We Want God Not the Equality Act

 

We Want God Not the Equality Act

King Jesus on the Throne

 

By John Horvat II 

March 4, 2021

The American Society for the Defense of TRADITION, FAMILY and PROPERTY

 

The debate over the Equality Act is much more than a discussion on “discrimination” or “rights.” If enacted, it will mark the nation’s formal and symbolic break with the Will of God. Such a conclusion comes from an inadvertent remark during the Congressional debate over the nefarious bill.

 

This religious aspect of the proposed legislation trumps all others. Many rightly oppose the measure because they say it will create a right to abortion, facilitate its funding and impose “transgender” tyranny upon the nation’s workplaces, churches, bathrooms and schools. It will codify “gender” ideology into the law of the land. All these are legitimate and substantial reasons to oppose the bill.

 

However, the most powerful reason for being vehemently against it is that it represents the severing of America’s relationship with God. In Congressional hearings about the act, Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler declared that which opposes the Will of God is of no concern for Congress. This is tantamount to saying that America should exist outside of God’s Will, that it should be completely indifferent to His Divine Law.

 

Eternal and Natural Law: The Foundation of Morals and Law

 

This declaration should cause great concern and grief for the nation. America’s ties to God are her most precious possession. The blatant contempt for this relationship cannot fail to have drastic consequences. It would mark a disastrous turning point.

 

A Rejection of God’s Will

 

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) triggered the denial in remarks he made on the House floor about God’s intent in Creation. Would that in their official statement on the Equality Act, the nation’s Catholic bishops had shown the courage of this congressman! Rep. Steube went straight to the core of the problem: “When men or women claim to be able to choose their own sexual identity, they are making a statement that God did not know what he was doing when he created them.”

 

“The gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God’s good design,” he continued. “Whenever a nation’s laws no longer reflect the standards of God, that nation is in rebellion against him and will inevitably bear the consequences. We are seeing the consequences of rejecting God here in our country today.”

 

As chairman of the hearings, Congressman Nadler’s brutal reply was that “What any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress.”

 

A Challenge to God’s Sovereignty

 

This short and impious statement contains the key to understanding the nation’s disastrous state. America has abandoned God. The congressman made matters worse by issuing a public challenge to God’s sovereignty over the American land and people. He repudiated the nation’s history.

 

By declaring God’s will to be a matter of no concern, he formally denies the validity of the Ten Commandments. However, they are an expression of God’s Will and His loving Providence for all nations, in all places, and for all historical eras.

 

He further kicks aside America’s past religious consensus, which recognized God’s authority. Although far from ideal, the United States was formed around a vague notion of God and a Christian moral code loosely based on the Ten Commandments. This consensus was adopted by the State, embedded in its laws, and engraved on its public buildings.

 

Although far-too-vague, this consensus had the good effect of deeply imprinting on the national character a sense of morality, godliness, patriotism and family devotion. It even had a healthy moderating influence on the economy.

 

Vast sectors of the American public remain attached to this moral code loosely based on the Ten Commandments. This attachment has given rise to reactions in defense of family, traditional marriage, property, faith in the public square, morality, and country that are the basis of the Culture War still raging across the nation.

 

Unmasking the Ungodly Left

 

Congressman Nadler’s remark represents a new phase in the political left’s shift away from God and His Moral Law. The antagonism is no longer hidden. The left’s program is so radical that it allows itself to be unmasked before the public. The congressman’s reply succinctly states that God should have no influence in the affairs of His creatures. America takes care of herself. God need not bless America.

 

Nadler’s rejection of God echoes Lucifer’s primal cry of revolt, “I will not serve,” in the battle in Heaven at the beginning of history.

 

This revolt goes beyond affirming that God’s Will is a matter of no concern. Instead, it sees God’s Will as a terrible obstacle that must be removed as the left seeks to “reset” society toward a state of things that is diametrically opposed to God’s Will. As the Equality Act’s draconian terms prove, those who follow God’s Law cannot be tolerated but must be suppressed. Everyone must be forced to validate error and approve sin.

 

The core of the Equality Act is found in this rejection of God’s Will. If those who favor the act are unafraid to deny God’s authority, then those who oppose it must, like Rep. Greg Steube, courageously affirm It, in the name of all Americans who recognize Christ as Lord and King.

 

Now is the time to reaffirm unequivocally and unapologetically America’s relationship with God. It is time to say: We want God, Who is our King.

 

The other aspects of the bill are important and must be addressed. However, this desire to do God’s Will despite all obstacles is what will deliver victory. It secures us the right to call on the Lord God of Hosts for aid in this unequal battle for the heart and soul of America.

 

John Horvat II is a scholar, researcher, educator, international speaker, and author of the book Return to Order, as well as the author of hundreds of published articles. He lives in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, where he is the vice president of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property.

H.R. 5: God-Awful Legislation


Justin Smith correctly expounds on how the Dem-Marxists impending legislation known as the Equality Act further normalizes ungodliness by legal means while destroying the God-given Natural Rights of the Bible-Believing. To wit I share some quotes from the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC):

 

Leviticus 18:22-25

 

22 You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination.

23 Neither shall you lie with any beast and defile yourself with it; neither shall any woman yield herself to a beast to lie with it; it is confusion, perversion, and degradedly carnal.

24 Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, for in all these things the nations are defiled which I am casting out before you.

25 And the land is defiled; therefore I visit the iniquity of it upon it, and the land itself vomits out her inhabitants.

 

Leviticus 20:13

 

13 If a man lies with a male as if he were a woman, both men have committed an offense (something perverse, unnatural, abhorrent, and detestable); they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

 

Romans 1:18, 24, 26-28, 32  

 

18 For God’s [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative.

 

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin],

 

26 For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one,

27 And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another—men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own [a]bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.

28 And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,

 

32 Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them.

 

Jude 1: 4-5, 7

 

For certain men have crept in stealthily [[a]gaining entrance secretly by a side door]. Their doom was predicted long ago, ungodly (impious, profane) persons who pervert the grace (the spiritual blessing and favor) of our God into lawlessness and wantonness and immorality, and disown and deny our sole Master and Lord, Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).

Now I want to remind you, though you were fully informed once for all, that though the Lord [at one time] delivered a people out of the land of Egypt, He subsequently destroyed those [of them] who did not believe [who refused to adhere to, trust in, and rely upon Him].

 

[The wicked are sentenced to suffer] just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the adjacent towns—which likewise gave themselves over to impurity and indulged in unnatural vice and sensual perversity—are laid out [in plain sight] as an exhibit of perpetual punishment [to warn] of everlasting fire. — Leviticus 18: 22-25; 20: 13; Romans 1: 18, 24, 26-28, 32; Jude 1: 4-5, 7 (AMPC)

 

You or I might face a future of jail or a civil suit for standing with God’s Word under the God-snubbing Equality Act.

H.R. 5: God-Awful Legislation

The Democratic Party Supports A Deviant Agenda Camouflaged as “Equality”

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/26/2021 10:20 PM

 

The Democratic Party Communists and their “leader”, Joe Biden, are quite similar to past Democrats and other anti-American radicals, except they are even more unhinged, deluded and sick in their feverish goals to destroy America and fundamentally transform Her into something unrecognizable. It’s not enough to simply attack the Bill of Rights, item by item, but now they find mythical “rights”, such as “gay rights” and “transgender rights”, that they’ve fabricated and pulled from some dark nether region of a body orifice, as a part of their attack on everything it means to truly be American and their effort to create a socialist, centralized state. And more than equality under the law, they prefer their Party Members are a protected and privileged class above all others, as seen through the recent passage of the Equality Act on February 25, 2021; that is anything but an act for equality.

 

Homosexuals, bisexuals, transsexuals and any other deviant have the same exact rights under the law and the Constitution as anybody else, unless they seek to engage in pedophilia. There already exist numerous Civil Rights protections for men and women, to the degree that nothing more is required or demanded. However, in that the current movement specifically seeks to protect unnatural sexual orientations as a matter of law, in a manner that tramples all over other people’s Inalienable God-Given Rights, what they in fact are demanding is privilege above all others and a forced validation of their immoral lifestyle upon Christians and conservatives, thus violating the conscience of most of Conservative America.

 

The Equality Act, also known as H.R. 5, would redefine “sex” under federal civil rights laws to encompass “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”. This is about much more than simply protecting these people from discrimination, since a 2020 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court already does so.

 

Call them “progressive” or anything else. Whatever label they have hid under, since the beginning of their miserable Marxist philosophy in 1848, these socialists have advocated for sexual license, by way of “the community of wives”, “free love”, “sexual freedom” and a host of other immoral pursuits, such as pedophilia, as seen through their numerous associations with the North American Man/Boy Love Association. They saw this as a way to tear apart the core family unit of a father, mother and their children, breaking down the bonds of kinship, in order to reduce the individual to simply being one more cog in the machine of the state, eroding the family in the name of sexual freedom just like they erode property rights in the name of “social justice” and religion in the name of the myth of “separation of church and state”.

 

[Blog Editor: NAMBLA is an evil perversion that the Equality Act paves the way to yet another ungodly normalization. Consider these difficult to locate articles (some old enough that inherent source links may not function:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Equality Act (H.R. 5) passed the House for the second time in two years, by a vote of 224 to 206, supposedly as a needed measure to solidify protections for LGBTQ people in the areas of employment, housing, credit, education and other domains. It was stopped two years ago by the Republican controlled Senate, but things have drastically changed, now that the Democrats control the entire Congress and the office of the president, and this immoral piece of trash actually stands a very good chance of being entered into U.S. law, as one massive insult to our ancestors and all that came before and was put into the making of America, so exceptional in days gone by.

 

This God-awful bit of legislation follows on the heels of one more misguided Supreme Court decision, in Bostock v. Clayton County, that stated “the protections guaranteed by the 1964 Civil Rights Act on the basis of sex also extend to discrimination against lesbian, gay, and transgender Americans.” And so, the sum of this and H.R 5 amounts to nondiscrimination protections for sexual orientation and gender identity being codified and inserted into U.S. law, rather than providing for protections under the traditional meaning and category of “sex”.

 

Much as we’ve already witnessed through several past legal cases, regarding one’s religious conscience, this act would also have harsh and significant impacts on retail stores, stadiums and transportation providers, especially if someone chose to refuse service to any transgendered person based on religious beliefs. Essentially, H.R. 5 supersedes and abrogates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was passed to ensure that “laws” didn’t infringe upon religious freedom.

 

Throughout all faiths, religious groups and Social Conservatives are exasperated and worried by this act, that they fear will force people to act in contradiction to their religious beliefs and convictions. They have admonished that faith-based adoption agencies, who hold to the traditional views of what constitutes a “mother and father” may close in large numbers, as they also make note that private schools too may close, rather than submit to hiring staff whose conduct is immoral by their standards and the tenets of their school’s faith.

 

Many Conservatives have broached an array of numerous possible consequences, should H.R. 5 actually pass into law. Some even note that it could very likely be used as justification to eliminate the existing ban on the use of government funds for abortion.

 

Representative Mike Johnson (R-La) observed: “This is unprecedented. It’s dangerous. It’s an attack on our first freedom, the first freedom listed in the Bill of Rights, religious liberty.”

 

Equally dangerous, H.R. 5 prioritizes transgender people over women and it endangers women’s safety by erasing sex as a distinct legal category, while demanding that heretofore female-only spaces and opportunities designed to increase representation for girls are now open to biological males, to men. Its text clearly states that “an individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity.”

 

Sounds like a free pass to the ladies’ restrooms and elsewhere for sexual predators, doesn’t it?

 

There’s nothing “equal” about this act, any more than it was an equally matched fight in the MMA cage between the transgendered man, now known as Fallon Fox, and his real live lady opponent, Tamikka Brents, when he broke her skull in several places, in 2014. This is the sort of insanity now advanced, advocated and facilitated by the Far Left and the Democratic Party, that is certain to facilitate and entrench transgender youth in girls’ sports, in high schools across America.

 

Under the pretense of “fairness”, the “Equality Act” would prohibit policy makers from ever acting in any manner that suggests a real difference exists between men and women or to actually guarantee the safety and equality of the sexes.

 

Adding jet fuel to the fire, America also recently witnessed a transgendered biological male, posing as female, in Dr “Rachel” Levine, refuse to properly answer a question from Senator Rand Paul, during the confirmation hearing on his suitability for assistant secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services, on February 25, 2021. Paul suggested that current Democratic Party policy favored the government overruling the authority of parents to advance the hormone treatment of children and the “surgical destruction” of their genitalia.

 

Paul asked: “Dr Levine, do you believe that minors are capable of making such a life-changing decision as changing one’s sex?”

 

To which came Levine’s non-response: “Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research”.

 

Levine also went on to dodge Paul’s questioning, when the Senator asked: “Do you support the government intervening to override a parent’s consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and/or amputation surgery of breasts or genitalia?”

 

Never failing to exhibit his true foolish and idiotic nature and flawed moral compass, during one October 2020 campaign event, Joe Biden opined: “The idea that an eight year old child or a ten year old child decides, you know, I decided I want to be transgender. That’s what I think I’d like to be. It’d make my life a lot easier. There should be zero discrimination.”

 

I guess a ten year old should be allowed to decide whether to drink alcohol or not, drive a car or not. Sure, what ten year old isn’t capable of making perfectly rational decisions for himself?

 

For decades, Conservative America has seemed unable to counter the mesmerizing Leftist language of the Democratic Party, because they camouflaged evil agendas in pretty sounding phrases, such as “civil rights”, a woman’s right to choose” and “protecting the children”, making it a hard argument to make, but at its heart, this Equality Act aims to advance the rights of transgender people above everybody else’s rights and to the explicit detriment of everybody else. It clearly violates religious liberty, by way of its subjective “equality”, while it ignores freedom of association and casts aside freedom of religion, in favor of emotionally-driven interpretations of discrimination, regardless of anyone’s actual intent or the reality of the matter.

 

In general terms, this immoral, junk legislation intentionally blurs the lines between biological sex and gender, something the Marxists have consistently relied upon for decades, regarding their so-called “gender theory”. The Democratic Party Communists want to control us all. They don’t want us working, living or praying freely, and now, they don’t even want us deciding what gender a baby is without their approval. The Equality Act is far removed from anything that barely protects anyone from real discrimination, and it has everything to do with compelling everyone to adhere to their sick, demented, deluded gender ideology.

 

Don’t be fooled by its name. Reject H.R 5 and every Evil, vile thing it holds. Fight like hell to see it and its lies and false narratives die in the Senate.

Civil Disobedience the God-Kind-of-Way


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© February 19, 2021

 

If you haven’t noticed, I am an extreme proponent of CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE to be acted out against a fraudulently elected nominally headed by CCP Joe Biden. I say, “nominally” because CCP Joe is obviously cognitively challenged. AND if CCP Joe isn’t operating with all his wits, SOMEONE is calling the shots. That “SOMEONE” is a Deep State mystery to me. I suspect the “SOMEONE” is a closet collective oligarchy that may or may not involve Commie Kamala the fraudulently elected Vice President. Civil Disobedience challenges that become massive will probably expose who is actually the power (or powers) acting in the fraudulently led Executive Branch as violent coercion emerges to force compliance.

With that little preamble I ran into Intercessors For America post by Karen Hardin that includes a link to a Rumble video which I will embed.

Karen Hardin screen capture

Interestingly Hardin shares she was not a Trump voter in 2016 (but neither a Crooked Hillary voter). Hardin shares how she became a Trump supporter then gets into the meat of her a little over an hour Rumble video. The discussion centers around the Biblical command of Romans 13: 1-2 which tells Christians to obey the governing authorities. Here is the New King James Version of those two verses:

13 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will [a]bring judgment on themselves. (Romans 13: 1-2 NKJV)

IF you just read those two verses it sounds like Christians are to sheep for the Dem-Marxist slaughter. With a little patience Hardin explains why Christians are only subject to the governing authorities wittingly or unwittingly enforcing law that is in common ground with the Will of God.

When one reads the entire chapter of Romans 13, a better context of how Christians should act under unjust tyranny is more apparent. Obey when godly governance. Disobey ungodly tyranny in acts of godly Civil Disobedience when possible. When civil violence against godless tyranny emerges, this is a post for another day.

Here is the entire Chapter of Romans 13 using the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC):

13 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.

 

Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them].

 

For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation.

 

For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer.

 

Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God’s wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience.

 

For this same reason you pay taxes, for [the civil authorities] are official servants under God, devoting themselves to attending to this very service.

 

Render to all men their dues. [Pay] taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due.

 

Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor [who practices loving others] has fulfilled the Law [relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements].

 

The commandments, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet (have an evil desire), and any other commandment, are summed up in the single command, You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself.

 

10 Love does no wrong to one’s neighbor [it never hurts anybody]. Therefore love meets all the requirements and is the fulfilling of the Law.

 

11 Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah).

 

12 The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.

 

13 Let us live and conduct ourselves honorably and becomingly as in the [open light of] day, not in reveling (carousing) and drunkenness, not in immorality and debauchery (sensuality and licentiousness), not in quarreling and jealousy.

 

14 But clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for [indulging] the flesh [put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature] to [gratify its] desires (lusts). (Romans Chapter 13 AMPC)

SHOULD CHRISTIANS SUBMIT TO ALL AUTHORITY?

 

By KAREN HARDIN, IFA CONTRIBUTING WRITER

FEBRUARY 18, 2021

Intercessors For America

Lord, we ask you for wisdom and discernment on how to walk through the confusing issues hitting us on a regular basis. Open our minds and hearts to understand the scriptures.

In recent days, as the Biden Administration has taken action to promote abortion, encourage transgenderism, and more, many Christians are praying about submission to governmental authority. Here’s what an IFA Contributing Writer has to say on the subject.

Immediately following the inauguration, I had many people tell me, “We have to submit. This is God’s will.” They would then quote Romans 13:1-2,

PrayING-for-wicked-and-evil-politicians [Not sure about the download]

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.  Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

 

The scripture seems pretty clear cut doesn’t it? But what about the times from history in which its not?

For example,

  • When Peter and John defied the religious leaders of their day to continue to preach the Gospel.
  • When the Hebrew mid-wives ignored Pharaoh and refused to kill the Hebrew babies.
  • When Daniel continued to pray openly defying the king’s edict.
  • When Paul, who wrote Romans 13 regarding governing authorities, then opposed them.

Which is right? And what are we supposed to do today regarding some of these same issues and the question of whether we are to submit to all authority?

If we state that Romans 13:1-2 mandates that we submit to ALL authority, does that mean that the Germans and Jews should have submitted to Hitler? If so, that would mean Dietrich Bonhoeffer was in rebellion and sin.

Was he? Hardly. Instead, he is remembered as a godly man of courage who stood up to evil.

What about Moses when he opposed Pharaoh? Or the disciples in the book of Acts?

Paul wrote Romans 13 telling the First Century Church to submit to “all” authority. Yet afterwards, he personally stood up to the authorities. Was he wrong?

In order to answer that question, we must compare the Bible to the Bible. It never contradicts itself. We also should compare the Bible to our Constitution. Because what many Americans don’t realize is that they actually agree. Why? Because contrary to the current narrative, the majority of our founding fathers were Christians and even those who weren’t, used the Bible as a foundational framework for our Constitution.

So, should Christians submit to ALL authority? Click below to find out how I would answer that question.”

All the signs of the last days are converging at the same time. Bible Prophecy is happening right before our eyes and like birth pains, the predicted events are happening more frequently and more intently. Never, in the history throughout the world have so many forces, including economic, scientific, techno-logic, ecologic, cultural, geopolitical, moral, spiritual and religion, converged together to bring this world that’s already teetering over the edge into the abyss, to a point of no return. Jesus said when you see all these signs happening, know that I am near, even at the door.

Biblical Perspective on Government Mandated Mask


Mask mandates are a form of political control not science based health. Such mandates that include mandatory self-quarantining of the healthy and social distancing are based on political COVID fear more than science. There is plenty of science verified solutions for COVID discounted by Leftist power-brokers and greedy Big Pharma doctors/scientists that could have made lives normal. THIS POST addresses Mask Mandates, Christian Civil Disobedience and those – even Christian leaders –  who are subservient to totalitarianism which is un-Constitutional and un-Biblical manipulation. (I encourage you to specifically take the time to listen to the fiery audio sermon of Pastor Matt Trewhella.)

Biblical Perspective on Government Mandated Mask

EKKLESIA SPECIAL EDITION

 

EKKLESIA – Facemask Special Edition

Facebook Group OKLAHOMA CONSERVATIVES FOR FREEDOM

 

A Biblical Perspective on Government Mandated Mask & The Doctrine of Lesser Magistrates:

 

As the government begins to institute mask mandates, Christians must seriously consider what our response should be. In these tumultuous times it is even more crucial that we KNOW & LIVE the TRUTH!

 

The issue of mandating masks is extremely controversial, but it is also vitally important. We believe the God ordained role of Government is to PROTECT, not to infringe on the liberties that GOD has given us. Blind compliance with unjust and tyrannical demands is neither Godly nor biblical, and the road of compromise and compliance ALWAYS leads to enslavement, persecution and tyrannical dictatorships.

 

But in the midst of this we have begun to see the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates, practiced across the nation. (click here to download a free PDF: https://caperepublic.files.wordpress.com/2019/04/matthew_j._trewhella_the_doctrine_of_the_lesser_magistrate.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1FezEeJ-fUh1lYQtaBQf9g5F8hp8riwvlHwjM1n_eMhekbKPZQCqTDMNA).

 

Pastor Matt Trewhella, the author of the Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates, recently preached a sermon on the issue of mask mandates explaining biblically and historically why it is no small matter. (Audio: https://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=72120161361809&fbclid=IwAR3lvj7csU-2dT9kW2_hd__RdTp8T4y_Cv-V6vF23Q0Se1siOk9l6rlBYtQ [Direct Audio: https://www.sermonaudio.com/saplayer/playpopup.asp?SID=72120161361809])

https://www.sermonaudio.com/saplayer/playpopup.asp?SID=72120161361809

Here in Oklahoma communities have begun to demand that city councils and Mayors be held accountable for these unconstitutional orders. The message is clear, if you are unwilling to listen and represent us, then you will be RECALLED & REPLACED.

 

A group called Unite Norman has collected over 2,400 signatures, enough to place two city council members on a recall ballot. They need 18,000 signatures to place the Mayor on recall. The link above will take you to the Facebook group if you would like to get connected to them as more and more communities began to follow suit.

 

BIBLICAL AND HISTORICAL PRECEDENT

 

1Pe 2:13-17 “Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme…”

 

We do not have an emperor who is supreme. The supreme ruler of the land is not a person but law—our Constitution. Even the President is subject to the Constitution. Therefore, in order to honor 1 Pet 2:13, we must oppose lawlessness. Robbing a convenience store is lawlessness, but it is also lawless for a politician or policeman to violate the supreme law of the land. It is my duty as a Christian and a citizen to oppose those who violate the law which is the Constitution. Laws contrary to the Constitution are invalid and in order to oppose lawlessness, we must NOT comply with invalid laws. [Blog Editor: Bold text indicates Blog Editor extreme agreement.]

 

Rom 13:1-7 “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities…”

 

Context is very important here. For the people to whom this was written, the governing authority was an emperor and ecclesiastical leaders. Neither of these are elected or in any way beholden to the people they rule. Our form of government could not be more different.

 

We literally select and HIRE our leaders, as an employer does employees, who then work FOR us. When they do not adequately perform the task for which we have chosen them, they hear from us, and, if needs be, are removed. It’s government by consent of the governed. When those we have chosen as leaders abuse their power, our lack of consent to their atrocities is the first recourse to halting the tyranny, and it is our duty to do so.

 

Our duty, I repeat, both as citizens of a self-ruled republic, and as Christians obeying the ultimate rule(r) of our country. Indeed, our refusal to consent is the first line of defense against tyranny.

 

The primary obstruction before a power-hungry politician is, “The people will not go along with it”.

 

Sadly, power-hungry politicians have lately discovered that the people will in fact go along will all manner of abuses, even clamoring for more, when they are afraid of a virus. This is a very dangerous precedent.

 

The duties of the responsible American citizen are vastly different from those of the Roman or Israeli citizen. Alexander Hamilton said:

 

“If it were to be asked, what is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws… It is by this, in a great degree, that the rich and powerful are to be restrained from enterprises against the common liberty—operated upon by the influence of a general sentiment, by their interest in the principle, and by the obstacles which the habit it produces erects against innovation and encroachment. It is by this, in a still greater degree, that caballers, intriguers, and demagogues are prevented from climbing on the shoulders of faction to the tempting seats of usurpation and tyranny… a sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government… There are indeed great and urgent cases where the bounds of the constitution are manifestly transgressed, or its constitutional authorities so exercised as to produce unequivocal oppression on the community, and to render resistance justifiable.”

 

James Madison said:

 

“It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The freeman of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle.”

 

Hamilton again, in the Federalist Papers stated:

 

“If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify.”

 

“What did Jesus do about such ordinances that ran contrary to the HIGHER LAWS?”

 

This quoting of our nation’s architects could go on for pages. But to return to Scripture, when Jesus walked the earth, many times He healed people on the Sabbath. He could certainly have waited one more day, and been in compliance with the Pharisees’ rules. But He deliberately chose not to. What is His justification for this “rebellion”? I would suggest that in Israel’s government of that day, the Torah was their Constitution, and the laws of the Pharisees were comparable to our city ordinances. What did Jesus do about such ordinances that ran contrary to the higher laws? In at least some instances, He defied them to make a point. When He and His disciples were walking through a grain field on the Sabbath, they began to eat the ears of grain as they walked. The Pharisees strongly objected; this too was against the rules. Jesus let them do it, and gave the Pharisees a lesson on Israeli history.

 

Paul insisted on his civil rights, and did not comply with directives to the contrary. Acts 16:36-39 says:

 

“And the jailer reported these words to Paul, saying, ‘The magistrates have sent to let you go. Therefore come out now and go in peace.’ But Paul said to them, ‘They have beaten us publicly, uncondemned, men who are Roman citizens, and have thrown us into prison; and do they now throw us out secretly? No! Let them come themselves and take us out.’ The police reported these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Roman citizens. So they came and apologized to them. And they took them out and asked them to leave the city.”

 

What about the blacks in the 1960s? Many black Christians engaged in much civil disobedience. They sat at lunch counters where the “law” said they could not sit. I can’t see a compelling argument for this law violating anyone’s conscience. It wasn’t a sin for them to sit elsewhere. They could have followed the rules and still eaten, gotten to work on the bus, etc. But the law was unjust and they made a point of defying it in hopes of changing it. Does Scripture really condemn this stand for justice? Especially under a government designed to accept such rebukes.

 

And what of the Jews? If the law says to put this star of David identification on, there’s nothing immoral about that; the Christian ones among them should obey, right? In The Boy on the Wooden Box, a memoir of a Jew on Schindler’s List, the importance of “taking alarm” early on in abuses is echoed:

 

“Meanwhile, in Krakow, the Germans tightened their grip on us. Jewish parents could no longer reassure children with the phrase, ‘It will soon be over,’ and a new phrase surfaced: ‘If this is the worst that happens.’…When forced to hand over our radio to the Nazis, we silently repeated the words; whenever a German was near, we whispered to ourselves, ‘If this is the worst…’”

 

Blind obedience to government, even in America, is ill-advised. “Perhaps the following historical event, as recorded in Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown, will serve to illustrate the incompleteness of the obedience perspective alone.

 

On November 5, 1864, Major Scott J. Anthony assured Black Kettle and a party of approximately 600 Cheyenne Indians that if they returned to their camp, they would be safe under the protection of nearby Fort Lyon. Black Kettle had been to Washington, D.C., met President Lincoln, and been given a large American flag which he flew over his tent with the promise from Col. Greenwood that no soldiers would fire on him as long as he flew this flag. Black Kettle and his tribe went peacefully to Sand Creek, obediently remaining under the umbrella of the authority of the United States government.

 

On November 26, 1864, Major Anthony and the Fort Lyon troops, along with Col. Chivington and 600 reinforcements, attacked Black Kettle and his people at sunrise. As the soldiers opened fire on the sleeping Indians, women and children rushed to huddle around Black Kettle’s tent which flew the American flag. The soldiers paid no attention to flags or cries for peace, but proceeded to massacre the Indians in a most brutal manner, killing 105 women and children and 28 men. (All but 35 of the men were gone on a hunting party, leaving the camp unprotected.) Black Kettle was under…authority…The Indians who didn’t believe Major Anthony and refused to camp [under authority] were unmolested. Black Kettle was not an advocate of war, but a voice for peace among his people. [Blog Editor: Here is the Thoughtco.com account that differs only Chief Lean Bear met with President Lincoln]

 

Thomas Jefferson once said:

 

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be. The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves; nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.”

 

It is the duty of responsible citizens to do their own research and not to trust the “government experts”. Men, with power, usually have ulterior motives, and it is for our safety that we must determine to the best of our ability (and with the internet we have greater powers than ever before) whether their advice is valid or tainted with ulterior motives and self-interest. The necessary action taken after such knowledge is gained is not the foot-stamping of rebellious teenagers but the responsible action of adults who are not gullible.

 

“All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.”—James Madison

 

We at the Ekklesia believe government instituted mask mandates are ENTIRELY outside their jurisdiction and is nothing less than TYRANNICAL. While individuals and private business have every right to choose to wear and enforce masks on their own property, the government DOES NOT have that right. Let us therefore consider carefully and prayerfully how we ought to interpret passages such as Romans 13 in light of context, additional Scriptures, historical precedent, and present times.
