I Believe, Let Me Roar That

Leave a comment


crossI can’t believe the significant increase in traffic over a post I made almost two years ago. The sting and conviction must be increasing and in effect validate the post of the Watchman. The posting, “Roaring on the inside“, was intended to sound a concern with personnel changes with the Newsboys and maybe a little drifting into the Grand Delusion. That discussions that have developed always entered into two schools of thought. One supporting the concern over the possibly veiled acceptance of perverting the scripture or the other supporting such creative license to do what ever with the scripture. The latter always come up with straw man arguments to support the cause but lack scriptural base themselves. The detractors typically come up with, “God Roars”, “Jesus is the Lion of Judah”, “C.S. Lewis has Jesus as Aztlan the lion roaring”, ad nauseam .

Though no retraction ever came out of it I believe the conviction was there on the part of the music team. If my job was to call them out and ensure they remain true to their original call then I feel the job was done. Recently this song has come out, seemingly as a response and I can say, “thank you, Newsboys, well done.”. It’s a great song, I can lead it in worship, I can confess it before others, I can shout it from the mountaintop and more than anything, I can say AMEN to it. Enjoy….

 

 

In this time of desperation
When all we know is doubt and fear
There is only One Foundation
We believe, We believe
In this broken generation
When all is dark, You help us see
There is only One Salvation
We believe, We believe
We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He’s given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion
We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection
And He’s comin’ back again, we believe
So, let our faith be more than anthems
Greater than the songs we sing
And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, We believe!
We believe in God the Father!
We believe in Jesus Christ!
We believe in the Holy Spirit!
And He’s given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He’s comin’ back again!
Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
In the here and now, let love invade!
Let the church live love our God will see
We believe, We believe!
And the gates of hell will not prevail!
For the power of God, has torn the vail!
Now we know Your love will never fail!
We believe, We believe!
We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He’s given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He’s comin’ back,
He’s comin’ back again!
He’s comin’ back again!
We believe!

Gog and Magog Revisited


/George Henton/Al Jazeera
A Russian soldier sits atop an armoured vehicle outside the Ukrainian army base not far from the region’s capital, Simferopol. It is one of a number of bases around the Crimea currently surrounded by Russian troops.

Well, as we continue to be locked in here in the Midwest by snow and sub-frigid temperatures things are heating up in other parts of the world. No, it has nothing to do with global warming, but it has everything to do with the condition of the world and the times we live in. Depending on how you read it Russian troops have invaded Crimea of the Ukraine or Russian troops have entered in to protect Russians in the Crimea. Ukraine claims up to 16,000 troops are on soil right now. Russian President Putin has stood his ground claiming the need while the POTUS wags his finger and says “get out of there or else”. Okay we won’t go there for now. Prison Planet has blamed this on the POTUS arrogance and hubris, maybe, but then Putin is claiming Western influence as the problem also.

Criminy, what’s the Crimea anyway? Continue reading

The “Son of God” Movie Is NOT What We Think–Do You Know The Voice of Your Master


godsfingers:

We most assuredly need to remain aware of our surroundings and what is going on. Not everything is a better option to filth. Is it better fill ourselves with low doses of evil? Turn the TV off, seek God in His word and be filled.

The Last Hiker does a wonderful job of presenting the subtle move toward apostasy being thrust on us as ” a better alternative”.

Originally posted on The Last Hiker:

Last year the History Channel featured the epic television event, “The Bible Series,” which was produced by Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett. This show captivated audiences and became the talk of many churches. Churches even purchased pre-written sermons to go along with the show, which according to outreach.com made it into 180,000 churches.

Roma and Mark were endlessly interviewed in Christian magazines, and on Christian radio. All along saying that they were sold out Christians and believers filled with the Holy Spirit.

And the churches bought it.

They promoted it.

And yet, as I watched “The Bible Series,” I personally became furious at how much they twisted the word of God. Not just omitting things for the sake of time–but changing the theme, the message, and the nature of Bible characters, and the nature of God Himself.

That is inexcusable.

God will judge that.

I was furious.

I’m Not King Obama? You Just Watch Me!


godsfingers:

I got an email forwarded to me from Jay Sekulow at ACLJ.org saying Obama is not King. We agree, technically no, but he has been setting himself for awhile. I figured this thought needed revisiting…

So where are we? There’s going to be an inauguration in a couple days. Apparently not many feel inclined to show up even though more money is going to be spent. He got re-elected but not many seem to excited, go figure. Perhaps it’s this ever growing despotism, perhaps it’s just mid-winter blues.

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden laugh together in the Oval Office, “yep, we got away with that one” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Perhaps it’s the false flag that happened in December, that we’d been predicting. Many are still livid at the suggestion that the Sandy Hook “tragedy” is a hoax, a false flag but the growing evidence, the continuing pining in the press about the need for gun control to avert another tragedy, begins to show otherwise. Hide behind the children like a good terrorist. Obama’s own words point to the need to…

Here We Go, King Obama Has Done Spoke!


obama pointing finger

Now you listen to ME!

Well, there ya have it. We’ve warned, cajoled, shouted front the house tops and now, out the mouth of the king himself, comes the declaration that the US Constitution is meaningless. Whether Congress goes with him or not he’s going forth with his own agenda and purpose. We presented to you Obama as king in, “Obama, Messiah, King of the Lose” and what the Bible told us about another nation that wanted to turn from the sovereignty of God to a earthly king, “like all the other nations…”  Continue reading

What are you waiting for?


Bethlehem

And the star shone brightly over head, showing the place.

Merry Christmas! And if I missed offending someone, Merry Christmas, peace on earth, goodwill toward men, the Christ has come. There, I said it, expect no apologies. Whether it’s the right day, the left day or somewhere in between. Whether you believe in the God of Abraham or the god of man’s finite and ever-changing wisdom. Whether you’re drunk on eggnog or have drunk the new wine of the Holy Spirit. This is the time and the message of the season and even more the entire year. Nothing black about it.

So what are you waiting for? Continue reading

RFID and other reports


RFID

I was at church yesterday at an after church feed (well, ya have to feed the flock doncha know) and talk headed toward RFID implants and I was told that involuntary actions were already taking place as an experiment in Wyoming. I found this pretty alarming. My darling wife, who assists God in keeping me grounded ( a task that even God needs help on occasion) checked Snopes and said it was false, but added, “where there’s smoke there’s fire.”. I concurred given that we are in chipWisconsin and the former Governor that tried to be senator was on the board of Applied Digital Solutions (makers of VeriChip technology)so we have a little insight into the direction things are going.

While checking out the story on my own, Continue reading
