Get On Your Knees and Fight Like a Man!


http://cccmurphysboro.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/praying-israelite.jpg?w=275&h=265It’s obvious, I love music. I live and breath music and the more that I can offer up in God’s service the sweeter it is and the more connected I feel. But today’s music has been getting soft, nice, unoffending. Don’t get me wrong, I like the music, but in a lot of cases there is no strength to it, no relational connection to Christ, kind of like music you could safely hear on secular radio, or love songs you could sing to your sweetheart. Much of the music has lost the edge, the edge of the sword.

Is this what’s happening, the apostate church, emerging church, the unoffensive church, the church of all hands and all paths really taking a stronghold? You look around and committed Christians, sold out to Christ, who refuse to back down are being slaughtered around the world. In the US they may not be getting killed but they are losing jobs, losing businesses. All the while here in the USA most folks just stand unaware or not caring, just as long as they get their fill of Joel Osteen (sic). And the church get increasingly powerless. As the enemy blatantly gains power as we race toward this worlds end we need all the help we can get.

Recently I dug up an old Petra album, “Petra Means Rock”, and the music is still powerful, maybe even more so today. And I came across one song, that still brings tears of excitement, joy, and drive. The title and first line of the chorus tells it all, more than boycotts and protest marches, more than prayer circles, more than going to the church for an hour followed by snacks. With your back toward the enemy on your knees facing God and trusting your back to Him. And praying, fervently, directly, knowing He is in control and will fight for you and with you. Listen to this song, embrace it, let it strengthen and enliven you and be reminded of the most powerful thing you have at your disposal……

 

“Get On Your Knees And Fight Like A Man”

[Based on 2 Chronicles 10:4, James 5:16]

Out on your own with your own self reliance
You’ve got no one to watch your back
You find yourself caught with no strong alliance
You’ve been left open for attack

Over your head the condition is graver
You’ve given ground you can’t retrieve
The cards are stacked and they’re not in your favor
But you’ve got an ace up your sleeve

Get on your knees and fight like a man
You’ll pull down strongholds if you just believe you can
Your enemy will tuck his tail and flee
Get on your knees and fight like a man

Under the gun, you’ve got no place to hide out
Backed in the corner on your own
This is one storm you are destined to ride out
One way to leave the danger zone

Get on your knees and fight like a man
You’ll pull down strongholds if you just believe you can
Your enemy will tuck his tail and flee
Get on your knees and fight like a man

You’ve got the backbone to fight this tide
You’ve got the will to survive
You’ve got the weapon, it’s at your side
You’ve got to learn to confide

Get on your knees and fight like a man
You’ll pull down strongholds if you just believe you can
Your enemy will tuck his tail and flee
Get on your knees and fight like a man

I Believe, Let Me Roar That

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 Continue reading

National Park Service or New People’s Army?


Ok. So I’ve been busy, too busy with the farm and I’ve been neglecting everyone while something insidious has been going on and I am so sorry for that. The recent “slim down” in federal finance has only been to “hit ‘em where it hurts” against middle of the road voters. Park ClosedThat’s pretty obvious to anyone with two eyes and a brain. Closing national parks, war memorials, anything dear to the public ( I’ve been made aware that BO’s favorite golf course is still open) to set rage against those who are trying to reel in this run away government.

Folks are being run off properties, forced out of businesses, subject to harassment, threats, fines or jail time. Isn’t this a great country? Continue reading

So, what is an AR15?

AR15 and 870 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A lot of to do has been and is being made about the AR15, so what’s up?  The disarmers are trying their best to strike fear and loathing for the weapon. Or, as in the recent shootings at the Naval base, Feinstein referred to it as the weapon of choice. But, oh wait, the shooter didn’t have an AR15, just a shotgun and two pistols. So where did the AR15 come from? Oh, he had one in his hands the week before, but not this week. OOOOPS! Guilt by association.

So what happened? Continue reading

The Gig is Up, World!

Canceling the armistice,  is this unexpected? I’ve been pondering the intentions of North Korea over the last couple weeks and wanted to write but unexpected events took precedence. Am I surprised by this announcement? No.  North Korea has been looking for an excuse to flex it’s muscles while the world has been smirking at the little schmuck. Continue reading

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


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.

English: President Barack Obama and Vice Presi...

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 create something extraordinary, shock the nation. When discussing pushing his agenda,

“The president acknowledged his proposals won’t be easy to pass. “This will be difficult,” he said. “This will not happen unless the American people demand it.”

The new effort to pass gun control legislation was spearheaded by Vice President Joe Biden, who chaired a committee put together by the president in the days following the Dec. 14, Newtown shooting.” ( Foxnews )

And so he created public demand…maybe. Continue reading

Soon, Bible Registration?


questionThe Sandy Hook incident has seemingly taken on a life of its own. Lot’s and lot’s of questions. There’s even a WIKI page with the official story, not unlike the official WIKI for climategate three years ago. While the mainstream media continues to fawn and sanitize the story, intelligence and/or crackpot information has been churning out a different and un-nerving story. Now, evidence is being presented to question whether the event actually happened. Apparently, it took 20 minutes for the police response from the call even thought the cop shop is a mile away. One “father” was told to “read from the card” for a public statement, only to find a picture of his daughter with the POTUS two days later. Picture comparisons indicate that many grieving parents are actually actors.Reporting indicated that the shooter even shot up cars in the parking lot before he, “shot his way in” , yet the principal walked out to see him.

Was this created by the media? Continue reading

Well, hide your guns!!!


I got an email yesterday that was pretty disturbing. It’s not like I’m unaware of what’s up with the media, how it works and how it’s used. I mean really, look how the current POTUS managed to come off as a good guy and get re-elected. We can play along and say, “well, it’s only another four years and he’s gone.”. No, the email content, though short and sweet had the clues that we are in deep do do as far as sweeping agenda manipulation in the media.

shooterHe sent me a link about a mass shooting in San Antonio, TX that never got covered by the state controlled media, wholly cold shouldered, with the question, ” So why isn’t this plastered all over the news?”. Good question. One, no one got killed. Two, it ended with a wrong result. HUH? No one got killed, wrong result? Yep. Continue reading

But Did They Have to Kill the Children?


Here we go again. Like many others I grieve for the families and friends of those murdered in NewTown, Conn. This was grievous, ugly, horrendous and the pain will go on. newtown But, in the pain, the truth needs to be told. This horrendous scene and the subsequent scenes that followed have NSA written all over them, much like the Colorado movie  shootings. Like the Colorado shootings a second gunman was witnessed, witnesses saw police lead a man in camouflage, handcuffed out of the woods, rifle shell casings were found yet the “gunman” had hand guns and the rifle was found in the car, the part about the second gunman disappeared. The gunman went out of his way to shoot up a school where his mother was not even on staff, and she wasn’t even there. Now I see a video of one of the father’s coached to read a cue card for his statement. And frankly, the text editor for this post went screwy when I put the title in before writing.

World Nuclear Holocaust Coming?


English: Internationally recognized symbol. De...

Today is December 7. Remembering, and never forgetting, that day that lives in infamy, when, in America, where it was safe to go outside, that very notion was challenged. “Just when you thought it was safe to go outside”……I always liked that line. It immediately appeals to the senses, brings an ominous ode, brings fear, trepidation. It could be huge, an unprecedented event suddenly, or simply a big hairy spider decided to put a web across the door frame. So it goes…

Removing the fuel rods at Bushehr

I was just reading at DEBKA files that the nuclear reactor at Bushehr in Iran had to be shut down in mid-October for fear of an explosion. And we’re just hearing abut this now?? Apparently, some bolts were laying on the bottom of the reactor tank under the rods. I guess this isn’t a good thing. My guess is that they heat up, boil the water and boom. Regardless, the accusation that the bolts came from the fuel rods was met with a strong, “not my fault” from the Russians who supplied the rods. They are looking at two possible scenarios. The first, deliberate sabotage (duh) or the fact that the Stuxnet virus got into the computers and tampered with the reactor’s computers. How does a reactor computer unscrew bolts and throw them in a reactor vessel? (DOH!) And then last but not least they haven’t ruled out an accident or “incompetence”. Then, added to this specter, there is the announcement of health issues around their nuclear sites.  Makes you feel warm and fuzzy, well the warm part. Continue reading

Palestinian State, Prophecy in Motion?


Well, now you’ve done it. In front of God and the universe. The world has given full support of the terrorists and thumbed it’s nose at the US and Israel.

The crowd roars in jubilation at the vote.

The only no votes were from the US, Canada and a couple of really low tier countries. The world agenda is really starting to take shape. The problem in all this is, why all this hype and hoopla now? Why is statehood important now? They SHOULD BE celebrating their 65th year of statehood.

Citizens in a Foreign Land


Well, it’s here the Eleventh Hour. In the United States of America it seems a do or die time, a time where your single vote will form the basis for the future of the US and ultimately the world. What an awe-inspiring thought. Over the last four years it has seemed to be an ever-increasing prison state in the US and, according to some, we have the chance to change that, again, according to some.

chains

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

One candidate, in spite of lies and cover up, has been quite transparent as to where he is going. The other is less certain. He seems to throw out Red Herrings to acquiesce the masses that go by the name of christian. But an analysis of the candidates indicates the only choice is a vote for the lesser of two evils.

Colorado Shootings: False Flag or Crackpot?


rifle

I try to steer clear of politics in this journal but this particular event has me un-nerved by the immediacy of the debate that ensued. I sincerely pray for the families of the victims of this heinous crime, that they find their hope and comfort in Jesus, the ultimate peace-maker.

Is this a false flag event? Before there was even a body count, NYC Mayor Bloomberg was in the media screaming for greater gun control ( remember this is the guy locking up all the guns in NYC that he can). Little is known of the assailant. They are, allegedly, scouring the Internet trying to find any information or writings from him.  Continue reading
