Word for 2023

Last year’s word was “pursue Truth.” This year it is to restore truth.

Pursuing Truth involved discovery of truth, and so we spent the year conducting God and Country seminars, (that you can still find on our Rumble Channel), and our twice monthly WISP meetings. Wisp, standing for worship, information, strategy and prayer.

So it would stand to reason that the next step would be to restore truth. It will be more challenging, since restoring truth means going to where the lies are, engaging the liars, and displacing the lies with truth. It will be a definite spiritual militant action rather than just an intellectual one.  You see when we studied to find the truth, we were with like-minded believers, and the atmosphere was relatively comfortable.

But the next stage will call us to engage unfriendly forces that have, up to this point, found no resistance as they advanced their lies. Restoring truth is about engaging the lie, to displace it with truth. Proverbs. 18:17 tells us,

 “The first one to plead his cause seems right, Until his neighbor comes and examines him.”

Unfortunately we have not been good neighbors as we have allowed the first one to tell one lie after another without ever examining them, and challenging them with the truth of God’s word using the excuse that we don’t get political.

Our first step must therefore be, repentance, of our complacency and our neglect of the garden God has commissioned us to tend. Unfortunately, the Church has withdrawn from the battle to take dominion over all the earth, the very first mission assigned to Adam, and we all know how that ended up.

But the, the second Adam came, and the prophet Isaiah tells us explicitly that the government will be on His shoulders, and we who are in fact the Body of Christ must accept this truth: The government is on our shoulders, if we are in fact, the very Body of Christ. No longer can a pastor who claims to be preaching the full Gospel declare in his puffed up pride, “we don’t get political.” That statement represents the second most despicable sin of the Church, only next to the sin of our factions and dissensions, seen in the idolatry of denominationalism.

How ironic that the very ones who declare that they don’t get political will be the first to advance their own local church or denomination. That, my friend is, in fact, getting political. We must repent of the hypocrisy in the church and seek to work together to see the advancement of the Kingdom of God, and not just the protection of our little fiefdoms. In 2023 the wheat will be separated from the chaff. It must be about His Church. If you truly love Jesus, then His most-heart-felt request before He was crucified must be our primary mission,

“that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. “—John 17:21

O How far we have fallen!

Perhaps the first lie we must address is the lie currently being advanced by religious leaders and pastors across the nation, the lie that says, “We shouldn’t get political.” The truth is that Jesus is Lord of all, especially and including our religion and politics. After all, what impacts the lives of the people you care about more than religion and politics? It’s not difficult to discern the author of that lie, the author of every lie, Satan, himself.

So, then restoring truth number one means approaching every pastor and religious leader you know who insists on not getting political, and no longer allowing the lie to stand without cross-examination. Pastors must be challenged to come together with other pastors of other expressions of the Christian faith and seek to win their local communities for Christ working together, so that by the love they have one for another the world will see Jesus and revival will come, community by community.

Then the Church working as “one new man” can successfully engage the culture and begin to restore truth.

Yes, it will be challenging because we’re talking about the sanctification of the Body of Christ. The Ecclesia, the called-out assembly of God is made up of individuals who must begin by allowing truth to reign in their own personal lives. Only in our integrity can we be equipped to successfully engage a demonically-driven culture. Purification and repentance of personal sin, as the Spirit brings conviction, will prepare the warrior for victory.  It’s no surprise that this will be observed by only a remnant of people who claim to be Christian. According to Barna research, less than 10% of self-identified born again Christians are totally submitted to Christ. You know, as they say, “Sunday saints-Monday Aints.” So this won’t be a popular position, but then again, even Jesus was shunned and disbelieved by his own family, neighbors and friends.

There are many other lies that need to be demolished by the truth of God’s word that I will address in future messages. Suffice it to say for now, that we must be prayerfully energized by the Holy Spirit to begin a radical assault on the systems of this world that are founded on the lies of Satan. We must demolish every lie encountered in every cultural institution, and wherever the lie might be heard.

Gird up your loins in 2023.  We’ve spent sufficient time in training. It’s now time to engage the enemy, and yes, the first place to engage the enemy is in our own hearts and minds, but then we must never again let any lie stand without challenging it with the truth of God’s word. As Dietrich Barnhoffer told us. “Silence in the face of evil is, in itself, evil.” Let that never be said of the men and women of His church in our nation.

Be prepared, put on your full armor, and get in the fight with us. We read the back of the book—We win!

So, join us. Get in the fight. We’ll be sharing more information and developing strategies on the specific lies that need to be addressed at our WISP meetings to which you are invited, on the second and fourth Saturday of each month at our Newburgh headquarters. Click the “Events” tab above for more information. If you can’t attend personally, you can still join or support the New York Faith & Freedom Coalition by clicking on the “JOIN/DONATE” button.

2023 will be a year of action as the Kingdom of God forcefully advances upon the Kingdoms of this world. We are blessed to be living in such an exciting time preparing for the coming of our King. Don’t miss the action. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.

Above all, remember God’s word for 2023: “Restore Truth” and be part of the mission.

Remember, America Bless God!

Get Ready for November

President Biden recently called Americans who believe in the governing philosophy advanced by President Donald Trump, “semi-fascists.” One thing you can know for sure about the Socialist-Democrats is that whatever they accuse you of is simply a projection of what they, themselves are, or are doing. The recent announcement of a $10,000 or $20,000 giveaway to his woke sycophants who need to repay college loans they freely incurred is yet one more example of an unconstitutional order by one who believes he has total authoritarian power, and who will stop at nothing to maintain that power including raiding the home of a previous president in order to find something to prevent him from running in the next election.

Now that the primaries are over, and the teams have chosen their players, we must gear up for a clean-sweep of leftist Socialist-Democrats, and replace them with “America First Republicans.”  This is no time for wishy-washy Republicans motivated by selfish ambition. This is a fight for the future of liberty. Remember what Reagan told us in his 1975 speech to CPAC,

“Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people.”

Against all odds, and against the opinions of the “political experts,” Donald Trump experienced continual victories because he proudly acknowledged that in this country we worship God, not government.  Because he openly, an unapologetically acknowledged the sovereignty of God over our land, God gave him favor and victory over political enemies who seek to advance a godless agenda, thus placing themselves in the position of the ultimate authority. This is simply the age-old battle between God and Satan. There is nothing new under the sun.

So this November, every believer has a responsibility to pray and vote for candidates at every level of government who will publicly affirm our national motto, (In God We Trust, in case you forgot it), and who will seek to govern according to our Judeo-Christian heritage. If we hope to see God’s grace “shed on Thee” again, we must pray like it all depends on God and work like it all depends on us to see Godly men and women occupy seats of leadership.

Every pastor must preach and teach his people to be faithful witnesses, and to give unto Caesar what is due unto Caesar in this nation where “We the People” govern. If the people of God don’t govern, the people controlled by Satan, certainly will.

If our children and our grandchildren grow up not knowing the blessings of liberty, it will be because the Christian pastors and church leaders did not preach the whole counsel of God, which includes the faithful stewardship of liberty. God has entrusted the “Truth” to us. If we don’t teach it, the father of lies will win– we will lose this world’s last best hope.

So, get ready. Pray like it all depends on God, but work like it all depends on you. For the benefit of the next generation, and for God’s glory. We will be, once again, “One Nation Under God.”

Being the Salt

Being the Salt – Howell’s Church July 17, 2022

Jane’s Revenge, and What it Says.

“But they mingled with the Gentiles and learned their works; they served their idols, which became a snare to them. They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood.” –Psalm 106:35–38

While we mourn the innocent lives lost at the hands of an evildoer in Uvalde Texas, I’m still hearing the cries of concerned Americans, and political opportunists, calling for answers to this murderous epidemic we have seen since Columbine in 1999. For the first time, however, I heard a political leader address the issue head-on when Lt. Governor Dan Patrick said on several TV shows that we must return to God. He referenced 2 Chronicles 7:14 which is the formula for national healing and revival. We must return to God.

I remember when I attended elementary school in Brooklyn, New York, the problems we dealt with were things like chewing gum and running in the hall. Today we’re talking about violence, drugs and even mass murder. How far we have fallen!

What else can we expect when we have taken God out of the classroom, along with such principles as “Thou shalt not murder.” Our children are brought up to believe that there is no God, that they are just a product of evolution with no particular meaning or purpose. We are raising a nihilistic generation, and yet the primary driving emotional need for males is a sense of significance. So, if they can’t find that sense of significance, because they don’t know why they were created by the God, and in His image, they will look for that significance wherever they can find it, even if it means dying in the process. After all, if there is no heaven or hell to be concerned about what does it matter?

The root of the problem is spiritual at its very core. The secular psychologist deals only with the mind, but is incapable of addressing what controls the mind, and that is the very spirit of man. It’s pretty simple. In the absence of God who is love, the mind is occupied with hatred and envy stirred up by demonic forces.

It’s time to bring God back to our public schools, and to our public life. Leaders at every level of government must go back to the principles that have made us the greatest nation on the face of the earth, remembering what Abraham Lincoln taught us, that, “those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.”

Yes, we have freedom of religion; that is not freedom from religion. Every nation and people will practice a religion either theistic or atheistic, but everyone believes in a highest authority even if it may be themselves. If we continue denying God His rightful place in the life of our nation we will surely sink into the depths of depravity and eventually experience the same end experienced by Sodom and Gomorrah as the historical record confirms.

We are “One Nation Under God.” To the degree that we return to the meaning of that motto, we will see healing and restoration. That must be our North Star, the rallying banner for all Americans to gather under, as we continue our journey to the “more perfect union.”

The question is, will we ever learn? For the benefit of our posterity and God’s glory, I pray we will.


The Spiritual Forces Driving the SCOTUS Leak.

Why was it thinkable for someone on the U.S. Supreme Court staff to think it was okay to leak confidential information as the recent Alito draft, for the first time in the history of the Court? It’s actually pretty simple.

George Washington gave us the answer in his Farewell address intended to instruct Americans on the dangers that would present themselves challenging the continuance of the republic. He said,

“Let it simply be asked, where is the security for prosperity, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in the courts of justice?”

If the sense of religious obligation deserts the oath of office there would be no security. You see, for the first time in American history, in the struggle to manage competing factions and ideologies, one side has renounced the sovereignty of God. In the absence of God, the oath keeper becomes his own ultimate authority, and will make any oath in order to advance his own cause. The ends justifies the means. After all, they are the final authority, and whatever will advance their higher goal is certainly justified.

We, in this nation, have survived under one stable form of government, under one Constitution, longer than any other in world history, because even during such trials as our Civil War, both sides of the conflict had a general reverence for the God of the Bible, and despite their imperfect understanding, they were both restrained by their accountability to God as they understood Him.

Today’s Left has renounced the sovereignty of God, and has, by default, assumed the position of the highest authority. They have become their own god subscribing to the Humanist Manifesto that declares independence from God; man will save himself.

In all of American history we have never experienced a significant segment of our population challenge the importance of the general acknowledgement of God, and our allegiance to pursue a more perfect union in accordance with His rules of order and right.

The danger we face today is that the leftist mindset, being accountable to no higher authority, will assume for itself the power to judge right and wrong, good and bad, who lives and who dies. The left becomes the host for every diabolical power to continue the Luciferian struggle that commenced long ago to dethrone God.

The only solution is a reaffirmation of our national motto: “In God We Trust.” That must be our north star, our rallying standard around which we must all join to continue our pursuit of that more perfect union. A house divided cannot stand. We must reaffirm our unity as “One Nation UNDER God.”

We must learn from our history, and from those leaders who led us successfully through challenges such as Abraham Lincoln who told us,

… it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God… and to recognize the sublime truth announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.”

The fissure in our nation will only be healed by a return to God who alone can heal our national wounds and ensure peace and prosperity for our posterity.
