In 1775, the Lutheran pastor John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg preached a sermon on Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” Concluding the message, he declared, “In the language of the Holy Writ, there is a time for all things. There is a time to PREACH and a time to FIGHT. And NOW is the time to fight.” He then threw off his clerical robes to reveal the uniform of a Revolutionary Army officer. That afternoon, at the head of 300 men, he matched off to join General Washington’s troops and became Colonel of the 8th Virginia Regiment.
Ministers turned the colonial resistance into a righteous cause and served at every level in the conflict, from military chaplains to members of state legislatures to taking up arms and leading troops into battle. And, ultimately, after two main British armies were captured by the Continental Army at Saratoga in 1777 and Yorktown in 1781, the other words of Patrick Henry to his fellow Virginians proved true: “Three million people, armed with the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.”
It is time for pastors, spiritual leaders, all leaders and all people to ARISE and stand against all of the TYRANNY that is being afflicted in our state, our country and our world today.
We must NOT fear, but BOLDLY rise up in FAITH like never before.
Always remember this, when we fear we are allowing the tyranny to consume us. When we do not fear, it is a sure sign of our victory and satan’s defeat.
Philippians 1:28 states “And do not (for a moment) be frightened or intimidated in anything by your opponents and adversaries, for such (constancy and fearlessness) will be a clear sign (proof and seal) to them of their impending destruction, but a (sure token and evidence) of your deliverance and salvation, and that from God.

This verse came to me early this morning!
Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “BE STRONG, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with VENGEANCE and with the RECOMPENSE of God; He will come and SAVE you”. (Isaiah 35:4)
The Lord wants you to live in His PEACE and not in the enemy’s fear! (Phil. 4:6-7) The Lord, our precious Heavenly Father is ALWAYS on hand to help you through whatever it is that is trying to bring fear, torment or anxiety upon you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6).
The Lord has NOT left this country!!
Love you ALL to life!

I am reminded of a saying that my mother always kept before as a child growing up. She said “Bernadette, a wise person should never argue with a fool, because if a person hears or looks upon the argument they cannot tell which one is the fool”. Wisdom is divine and it comes from the Lord. Jesus is the power and wisdom of God (I Corinthians 1:18).
You see we may have a lot of knowledge, but we need wisdom to know what to do with knowledge and how to apply the knowledge.
It is so VITAL that we FOCUS on the TRUTH and what UNITES us and RISE above what divides us.
Truth is light and remember that the LIGHT always dispels the darkness. God is light and in Him there is no darkness (I John 1:5) Remember also that our U.S. Constitution and the Republican Platform DERIVES from light. It is like cream and cream rises to the top.
I want to encourage everyone to stop the inward fighting, stop the name calling, stop diagnosing each other. Your diagnosis may be totally wrong. Let us focus on spreading the truth of the history of our country, let us focus on spreading the truth of our platform and the truth of our U.S. Constitution. The truth is also that the Republican Party is the abolitionist party. The enemy’s focus is to continually create confusion among us. He is the author of confusion and God is the author of peace (I Corinthians 14:33). The enemy knows that if he can keep confusion going on among us, that he can steal our unity and defeat us all.
We are totally STRONGER TOGETHER, when we rally around the truth.
Let us focus on the truth and put our energy and time in stopping the lies of the critical race theory movement and that America is a racist country movement. America is not a racist country, although we may have some racist people in our country. Let us focus on stopping the shedding of innocent blood (abortion). Let us focus on rescuing and saving our children. Let us stop the voter fraud. We must fight together for election integrity in our country and our world. We have elections to straighten out (2020) and we have elections to win in 2022 and 2024.
WE ARE AT WAR!! Let’s stand together against this evil.
Love you all to life

The Father of American Education, expressed the purpose of schools was meant for the advancement of the Christian faith. “ In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under free government ought to be instructed. No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people”. Unfortunately, In time, a philosophical shift took place in America, and the biblical principles for education were slowly eroded and abandoned, with sad and tragic consequences that continue to unfold, John Dewy; known as “The Architect of Modern Education,” said, “There is no God, and there is no soul, Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion.” Those props have been knocked away, and the loss of moral standards has opened the door to untold numbers of unwanted teen pregnancies, abortions, drug abuse, alcoholism, violence, and suicide. If we believe that the Founders were correct in asserting that America would fail if it lost it’s religious foundation, it is primarily incumbent upon Christian believers to reaffirm and reclaim our Christian educational heritage with the same passion and commitment of the Founders. There are many ways and many levels at which to instigate change, but it begins with a willingness to become engaged in the battle. (Noah Webster-1836)
It is VITAL that we all become engaged in the battle that we are facing in our country today.
I want to especially ENCOURAGE and URGE all pastors to become engaged in this battle.
Whether we want to accept it or not, we are at WAR. We are at war for the soul of our country, we are at war for the souls of our babies, we are at soul for the soul of our children and we are at war for the soul of our physical lives.
We must STAND up against this tyrannical government and speak TRUTH and EXERCISE our God Given AUTHORITY and our CONSTITUTIONAL rights. Evil knows that we have already won, but it’s banking on our ignorance and unwillingness to RISE UP against it. We MUST stop evil at it’s core and not let it prevail against us or our country.
Let us ALL engage in the fight that is before us. We must fight this war in the spirit as well as in the natural, trusting in God’s ability and power to bring us total victory, and He will (Ephesians 6:12-17).
We must OCCUPY until Jesus comes back (Luke 19:13 KJV)
Let’s get UNIFIED and LOCK arms together around the truth!!! Who then will be able to stop our mighty moving force? The answer is Nobody.

I was in an amazing historic bookstore in Florida. After engaging with the owner for a short time, he said to me “GIVE ME SOME WISDOM “. I looked at him and then began to search within me and listen for directions from the Lord. I heard these words from my spirit and then I began to speak them to him. I said to him, “Of making many books there is no end, and much study is weariness of the flesh. All has been heard, the end of the matter is, fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man”. He looked at me with tears in his eyes and said. “GIVE ME MORE WISDOM”. I then began to share more as I was led by the Lord.
I would like to elaborate on this word. In the book of Ecclesiastes it states “…..My son, be warned. Of making many books there is no end (So DO NOT believe everything you read), and much study is weariness of the flesh. All has been heard; the end of the matter is this; fear God (Revere and worship Him, knowing that He is) and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man (the full original PURPOSE of His creation, the object of God’s Providence, the root of character, the foundation of ALL happiness, the adjustment to ALL Inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun) and the WHOLE DUTY for EVERY man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing. Whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:12-14)
What is the full, original purpose of our being created?
What is the object of God’s Providence?
What is the root of our character?
What is the foundation of ALL our happiness?
What is the adjustment to ALL of our inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun?
What is the WHOLE DUTY for EVERY man?
The answers to all of these questions is to fear and worship God and keep His commandment. This word fear means to reverence and worship God. We are not to be afraid of Him. He does not want us to be afraid of Him. He is our precious Heavenly Father who loves each and EVERY ONE of us with an EVERLASTING LOVE. (Jeremiah 31:3)
God admonished us to keep His commandment. All of His commandments are wrapped up in one word, and that one word is the commandment of LOVE. (St. John 15:12)
You may then ask, “WHAT IS LOVE”? One of the best definitions for love that I have found is in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 from the classic amplified bible.
It states, “Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes NO ACCOUNT of the evil done to it (It pays NO attention to a SUFFERED WRONG). It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when RIGHT and TRUTH prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to BELIEVE the BEST of EVERY PERSON, it’s hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it ENDURES everything without WEAKENING. LOVE NEVER FAILS…….
So, as we go through life let us be reminded of our PRIMARY PURPOSE in life. Our primary purpose in life is to worship, reverence and praise our creator and to keep His commandment (LOVE). Every other purpose for our lives, (be it the President of the United States, Governor, spiritual leader, garbage collector, doctor, lawyer, engineer, school teacher, professor, business owner, nurse, musician, artist, movie actor etc.), should ALL STEM from our primary purpose.
We were ALL created to live for the praise of our Heavenly Father’s glory. (Ephesians 1:12)
I want us to all know and to understand, that divine wisdom comes from our Heavenly Father and Christ is the wisdom of God. (1 Corinthians 1:24-25). As we all work on becoming intimate with Him through the reading of the bible and through worship, reverence, and love, our lives will begin to be governed by His wisdom and we will truly begin to walk in our divine purpose in this life. Knowing WHY WE EXIST and KNOWING OUR PURPOSE is vital to our success and happiness in life.
I want to encourage us all to always revere, worship and keep God’s commandment and we will ride on the high places of life with such peace, joy and contentment.
Love you all

I was sitting here in my living room at 4:30 am this morning, meditating on the purpose and the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection. I then began to write these truths that came to me from the Lord:
We were ALL lost and defeated (eternally doomed). The first man Adam brought us ALL into sin and out of fellowship with God our creator. He did this by disobeying God’s word and following the dictates of his flesh, BUT Jesus Christ (the second man Adam) paid the price of death to bring us ALL out of sin and back into fellowship and right standing with God, our creator. Although Jesus Christ paid this wonderful price for us, we must believe on Him and make Him Lord of our lives to receive these benefits.
The prophet Isaiah prophesied about the purpose of Jesus’ crucifixion. He said “Surely Jesus has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains (of punishments), yet we considered Him stricken, smitten and afflicted by God; But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:4-5).
NOTE: Jesus was wounded for our transgressions (sins), iniquities, our peace, our financial prosperity and our healing.
You can find the words of these prophecies fulfilled in Matthew 8:16-17 and I Peter 2:24.
Also, the fulfillment of this prophecy is found in Matthew 27. It states “about the sixth to ninth hour there was darkness over all the land, and about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice saying Eli, Eli Lamasabachtani? Which means, My God, My God why have you forsaken me? Some of those who stood there, when they heard that said, this man is calling for Elijah! Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed and offered it to Him to drink. The rest said let him alone, let us see if Elijah will come to save Him”. And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit (He died).
On the sabbath, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men, but the angel answered and said to the woman, DO NOT BE AFRAID, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, FOR HE IS RISEN as He said. Come see the place where The Lord lay and go quickly and tell His disciples that He is RISEN from the dead and indeed He is going before you in Galilee, there you will find Him. When they saw Him they worshipped Him; but some doubted.
Jesus came and spoke to them, saying “ALL AUTHORITY has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of ALL nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo I am with you ALWAYS, even to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:1-6 & 17: -20)
GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US!!!
Jesus gave ALL AUTHORITY and POWER to the church.
Jesus put ALL things under His feet, and gave him to be head over ALL things, to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him, who fills all in all (Ephesians 1:22)
So, what power did Jesus give us? He gave us the power and authority to trample over ALL the power that the enemy possesses (Luke 10:19).
The POWER and the PURPOSE of the CROSS and RESURRECTION is to take your authority and dominion that Jesus Christ paid for you through His precious shed blood, and exercise this power to defeat ALL of the darkness, demons and evil spirits that are lurking on earth.
Also keep in mind that Jesus was manifested to DESTROY and UNDO the works of demons and evil spirits. (I. John 3:8).
This is how we are going to defeat the demons and darkness in our COUNTRY and our GOVERNMENT.
So DO NOT FEAR, but RISE up in FAITH. Let’s be or continue to be the light on this earth.
The light IN us will destroy the darkness AROUND us.
Happy Blessed Resurrection weekend!!

This morning I heard out of my spirit “THE STORM IS PASSING OVER”.
What is a storm? A storm is a violent, tumultuous force. It can also be affliction, calamity, adversity, distress and to attack & attempt to take by scaling the walls.
Our precious Heavenly Father does not bring storms into our lives, but He delivers us out of and from the storms in our lives. Jesus said that He has given us His word so that the PEACE that is in Him, will be in us; and that it will give us great CONFIDENCE as we REST in Him. He goes on to say that in this unbelieving world we will experience trouble, trials, distresses, frustrations, etc., but we MUST be courageous and fearless because He has CONQUERED the world for us and have DEPRIVED it of it’s power to harm us. (St. John 16:33 passion, Amplified)
Our country is going through storms. Some of you may also be going through a storm or storms in your life. It may be a storm of persecution, a storm of fear and worry, a storm of sickness in your body & or your mind, a storm of financial lack, etc.
Are you going to believe God’s word or the storm that you are facing? Let’s choose God’s word ok? Whatever it is that you are facing in life today, there is a GLORIOUS way out. Jesus has and knows the way through your wilderness and also our country’s wilderness. All we need to do is FOLLOW Him.
We follow Him by obeying His instructions and by applying His word to our circumstances (Storms).
By doing this, we are choosing life in our lives.
I want to encourage us ALL to LOOK to Jesus and TRUST Him. Remember He has already CONQUERED the Storm’s for us. As we look to Him and FOCUS our attention on Him, we will come out on the other side with total VICTORY! (Proverbs 4:20-27)
Our Heavenly Father is with YOU and He is with our country. He will keep us ALL anchored and safe until the storm passes.
THE STORM IS PASSING OVER!!!!!!!
Love you all to life

His rod and his staff; they comfort us. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies; He anoints our head with oil and our cup runs over. His total GOODNESS and His total MERCIES shall follow us ALL the days of our lives; And we shall DWELL in the house of the Lord FOREVER!! (Psalms 23)
Some of you may be going through dark times in your lives personally. Our country is seemingly going through dark times as well. It may seem like we are experiencing the valley of the shadow of death. Remember it is ONLY a shadow. Our God is with you and He is with our country. When God is with us, we do not have to fear ANY EVIL. When God is with us PROTECTION and PEACE is available to us. Let us continue to rest in His strength and ability to bring us to TOTAL VICTORY!!! Remember our job is to follow and obey Him and His job is to perform!! He for sure will perform BIGGLY on your behalf and upon our country!!
He is preparing a great big bowl of VICTORY at the table for ALL of us!!
I want to encourage ALL who have not made Jesus Lord over your lives, to please do so ok? This is our security for eternal life and it is truly an amazing, exciting and peaceful journey.

Many soldiers placed their lives on the line during the civil war to bring an end to slavery, along with the abolitionist. On January 1, 1863 President Lincoln formally issued the Emancipation Proclamation, calling on the union army to LIBERATE ALL enslaved people in states still in rebellion as “an act of Justice, warranted by the constitution, upon military necessity”. Three million enslaved people were declared to be free. In 1865 the 13th amendment was formally adopted in the United States Constitution. The ending of slavery ENABLED many African Americans to move into their purpose and destiny in life. Because of this freedom many innovations were brought into our world and lives. I want to honor and celebrate them ALL. I also want to point out a few of them and their accomplishments.
George Washington Carver was born January 1, 1864 in Diamond, MO. He was an AMERICAN agricultural scientist an inventor who promoted alternative crops to cotton and methods to prevent soil depletion. He was one of the most prominent scientist of the early 20th century. He was also an educator and was famous for many inventions, including over 300 uses for the peanut.
Sarah Goode was born in 1855 in Toledo Ohio. In 1888 Sarah applied for and was granted a patent in Chicago, Illinois. She conceptualized what she called the cabinet-bed. A bed designed to fold out into a writing desk. Meeting the increasing demands of urban living in small spaces, she invented the cabinet-bed “so as to occupy less space, and made generally to resemble some article of furniture when folded “. She re-imagined the domestic space to make city living more efficient.
Some other African American Inventors are:
I want to point out how we ALL NEED each other, whether we are red, yellow black or white skin. Let us help each other see this TRUTH.
Without the help of the Lord working through President Abraham Lincoln, the soldiers and the abolitionist during the civil war, we would probably still be enslaved and in bondage; and without these GREAT inventors inventing these amazing and beneficial inventions, we would not be where we are today. You see, we are all helpers one to another and we need each other.
We have all come too far to lose what we have fought for. “THAT IS OUR FREEDOM “.
Freedom of religion
Freedom of speech
Freedom to assemble
Freedom of press
Freedom to pursue the American Dream
Freedom to live in a free market system
Freedom to bare arms (etc.)
We ALL bleed red. Let us take time this month to focus on what has united and unites us, and RISE above what is trying to divide and separate us.
Love you ALL!

Many are saying “NOW WHAT?
It looks like darkness has won and we have been defeated! To some it looks like the Lord has forsaken us! Well HE MOST CERTAINLY HAS NOT!
I’m reminded of the prophet Daniel. Daniel had an EXCELLENT spirit and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm of the kingdom. There were other leaders of the kingdom which consisted of all the governors, the administration, the satraps, the counselors and the advisors; which they were all very jealous of Daniel and began to plot against him to destroy him. Daniel was a praying man who prayed 3 times a day to the true and living God. The plot that the jealous and evil wicked leaders made against him was that they consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a firm decree, that whoever petitioned any god or man for thirty days, except the king shall be cast into the den of lions. The king signed the writing. Daniel was not moved by what was done. He went home and with his windows open, prayed to his true and living God like he had before. When the evil and wicked leaders found Daniel praying, they told the king. The king’s heart was broken because he loved Daniel, but because he signed the decree, he had to follow through with it. They cast Daniel Into the den of lions.
It seemed like the evil, wicked and dark men had won! It seemed like darkness gained the victory, but the Lord was with Daniel. The Lord shut the lion’s mouths. The lions were unable to hurt Daniel. Because Daniel trusted in the Lord, he was delivered from being eaten up by the lions.
The evil and wicked men that plotted against Daniel to destroy him were brought before the king, and the king had those men thrown into the den of lions. The lions destroyed those men. (Daniel 6:1-28)
There has been many evil and wicked men that have plotted against our country for decades to destroy it. It seems like they have won. It seems like darkness has prevailed, BUT IT HAS NOT!! God is with us like he was with Daniel.
DO NOT EVER ALLOW TIME TO DETERMINE DEFEAT! We have already won!
Just like our God shut the lion’s mouth for Daniel, He will shut the mouths of those that speak lies against President Trump our COUNTRY and you. (Psalms 63:11)

Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, wrote in a letter to Thomas Jefferson:
I have always considered Christianity as the strong ground of republicanism. The spirit is opposed, not only to the splendor, but even to the very forms of monarchy, and many of its precepts have for their object’s republican liberty and equality as well as simplicity, integrity, and economy in government. It is only necessary for republicanism to ally itself to the Christian religion to overturn ALL the corrupted political and religious institutions in the world.
(II Peter 2:19)
I want to encourage and urge all pastors, all teachers, all leaders, all Christians and ALL people to educate and continue to educate the truths of these words.
Christianity IS NOT a DENOMINATION, but it is the Kingdom of God! (Christ taught the kingdom of God) (Matthew 6:33)
