One quick look around the world and it is easy to see what is happening, if you have the proper biblical worldview. We have arrived to a time when the world will soon be “one” in brotherhood, sisterhood, love and good feelings. It will be a world where no one will own anything and love it. The elite will own everything and exercise control over all people living when they successfully take over the world. However, unbeknownst to themselves, the Antichrist will come up alongside of them but not of their inner circle, will kill three of the elite’s 10 “kings” and the remaining 7 vow their loyalty to this son of perdition.

In countries like Canada, France, the UK and Australia, the noose of Marxism’s control is seriously tightening. However, people in France and elsewhere are fighting back. Some of this is happening in the USA all under the guise of keeping us “safe” from the terrible scourge known as CV-19 and its “variants.” Meanwhile, the Dems are fighting not only election integrity but pushing with all their might to keep the audits in swing states from happening. Why? What are they wanting to hide?

Moderna now decides to do a “clinical trial” study after several hundred thousand pregnant women have already received the jab.

Moving onto news from California with regard to mask mandates, I knew we would return to it, but didn’t think it would begin happening until after Newsom wins the recall election slated for September. Mayors and/or county governments are the ones making these decisions, but it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that Newsom is behind things and picked up the phone to “chat” with Democrat leaders of various cities and counties to push it. If Newsom pushed it now openly, he’d reduce his chances of beating the recall, so likely others are stepping up. But who knows?

It seems that globalists (under Satan’s direction), are not giving up and why should they? They have society where they want us, so all they need to continue to do is push us where they want us to be to maintain an even gain greater control over all aspects of society.

Do you get the impression that Romans 1, 2 Timothy 3:1-5 and other portions of Scripture like Matthew 24 are happening right in front of us? I really do not know what the short outcome of all this will be. Will there be successful push back or will the Left win even in the short run? Well, obviously things are getting dicey and we know where things will ultimately end up because it has been clearly revealed in many portions of God’s Word. It’s simply a matter of God’s timing.

The best advice I could give anyone is to get and stay close to God, depend on Him to get us through all of this emotionally and spiritually and to meet our physical needs. In spite of the fact that so much of what the Left supports are obvious lies, the lies continue unabated, pretending to be deferential and fair, but in reality, they push their Marxist propaganda unrelentingly. This does not bode well for global society.

I could go on and on regarding all of these things, but let’s switch gears here to look at how God wants and expects us to respond to all of this. First thing He expects is that we keep our heads and not become overrun by the hate and lies.

Moreover, as Paul notes in Ephesians 4, Christians need to be about renewing our minds. Paul goes into great detail in Colossians 3:1-17 also.

…put off your former way of life, your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be renewed in the spirit of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. (emphasis added)

Paul is giving us several commands here, which we have previously gone over. He emphasizes that we are “to be renewed in the spirit of your minds,” which is Paul’s way of telling us that this needs to become the practice for every Christian. If we do not practice this, we will not be successful at it. This requires effort on our part. It does not simply happen by itself. There is a cost involved for us.

In successive verses, Paul tells us how to do this or shows us what renewing our minds looks like (Ephesians 4:25-31 Berean Study Bible).

25 Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one another. 26 “Be angry, yet do not sin.” Do not let the sun set upon your anger, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.

28 He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing good with his own hands, that he may have something to share with the one in need.

29 Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building up the one in need and bringing grace to those who listen.

30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, outcry and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and tenderhearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you.

It’s one thing to read these words and even agree with them, but it’s quite another to put them into practice. But Paul assures us that this process (and it is a process), of renewing our minds comes from creating a habit of it. We can be guaranteed that we will not be able to do these things if we do not start from the correct place and practice it daily. It simply will not happen. We might be able to stop telling lies, we might be able to stop stealing if that’s what we did before Christ, we might be able to control our tongues some of the time but not always and unfortunately, we will never come to a place in this life where we will no longer grieve the Holy Spirit. So is Paul pushing us to seek something we cannot attain? No.

The problem remains that many to most of us won’t find the wherewithal to do what we need to do without the presence of persecution. That’s unfortunate, but fact. Persecution separates the pretend Christians from those who are sold out to Him and seek His favor daily. It’s getting late to board that train but it’s certainly where we all need to be if we are going to successfully navigate life in the power of His Spirit.

How does one “get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, outcry and slander, along with every form of malice” (v 31)? Can we successfully change our personalities so that we become clearly “kind and tenderhearted to one another, forgiving each other” as Christ forgives usHOW can that happen?

The easy and obvious answer is that this is only done through our dependence upon the Holy Spirit. It is a partnership, isn’t it? God will get it done (but not completely until each Christian leaves this life for the next). But we have to choose it and on a daily basis. If we do not choose to do this from the moment we wake each day, we are already defeating ourselves.

I was reading church notes from Way of Life Literature and part of it was about two Canadian pastors who have finally been released from prison and their church buildings will be given back over to them. One pastor, Tim Stephens, who had been jailed since June 14th spoke to his congregation after his release. In part, he stated the following:

Don’t fear men. Shout from the rooftops that Jesus Christ is King of all kings…Fear God. (emphasis added)

Persecution is really a great divider. It divides true Christians from pretenders and helps authentic Christians separate from the idols in their life and fear of men. Though I do not believe this is God’s first choice for His children, He will allow or deliberately send persecution to refine His often wayward people. This happened throughout the Old Testament with Israel and has happened since the beginning of the Church (Acts 2). The increase of persecution of Christians now is meant by Satan to scare us, to enslave us in the coming one-world system, and to silence our witness. God, however, means it for our good – our growth and His glory. What could be better?

If/when government workers come knocking on your door to convince you to take the vax, give them the Gospel! They want you to take the vax supposedly to keep you from dying. Give them the Gospel to help them think about eternal death.

Do you want your mind renewed? You have to actively work at it, by:

  • reading & memorizing His Word daily
  • growing in your fear of offending Him by
    • desiring above all things to do what pleases God, not man
  • continual prayer and praise of God

To successfully grow beyond the fear Satan is creating, we must choose to deliberately move closer to God by looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). We must learn to do things His way and His Word is that manual for living here. There really is no other option. We must understand that renewing our minds – putting off and putting on – are things we are responsible to partner with God in doing. He won’t do it against our will. He wants our wills, by our choice, to work in tandem with His.

We can shrink from what is coming or we can embrace it knowing that God will uphold His own.

Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him. (Psalm 34:9)

    There’s a reason why we have tracts near the front door…
