Happy New Year

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, most of which we break long before Valentine’s Day. But I am big on the Biblical concept of putting things behind us and looking forward. The Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that “old things are passed away, behold all things are new.” The only time I look back on ‘22 is to rejoice in the victories God has wrought. Flipping a school board to conservative majority, and building my organization to where Christian Conservatives is now a part of the vernacular of our community. The new year is a clean slate of abundant possibilities. A clean slate to make it what we will. For me I want to drive a state into the ground and say I will not go back to any former issues, sin, or attitudes. I am here and I am only going forward, getting better and realizing the abundance that God has for me. New year means new challenges and new demons to conquer. Issues are before me and I am asking for direction on what and how to tackle them. I am asking for three things, 1- Revelation to grasp the hidden, 2 – Vision to know my focus, and 3 – Wisdom to apply knowledge to the problem. Let’s do this, 2023 you better know my name cause I’m going to conquer you!! Rh

Well It’s Almost Over

2022 has been a horrific year. More stolen elections and more illegals gaining entry to our wonderful land. I am still amazed that this is the America of today. As I look back to where we were as a country 45 years ago I am shaken that our lack of freedoms and governmental heavy handedness is accepted by so many. We as Americans were free and happy going about our business in everyday life oblivious to what was probably going on behind the scenes. .

Look back on various events and see through the eyes of what we know today. The assassination of President Kennedy, (yes I remember where I was on that fateful day) which ripped our tranquil nation with fears not realized before. Soon after the escalation of the Vietnam War, one we never intended to win. Robert Kennedy shot in LA. Hippie culture that promised free love and drugs to escape the new reality. Riots in Detroit and LA and the hatred of one tribe against another. But, on the west coast we soon saw a Jesus People movement that ushered thousands into the Kingdom of God. Movements that started them are still around making disciples for Jesus.

Fast forward to today, we are experiencing hellish times now as I said in my opening paragraph. God is merciful, as He did something new then after such chaos and turmoil. He can do it again. Revival to awaken the Church, and a Move of God to transform us into His Image. However the spiritual evil we have today after turning our back on God in this nation will take effort and the empowering of the Holy Spirit. We are in a spiritual battle of demonic activity that has changed our culture. The fight is on for the very soul of America. It will be hard and long, but we must fight for our nation, a nation dedicated to God on the shores of what later became Jamestown Va.

We should ask ourselves two questions, Jeremiah 12:5 “If you have run with the footman, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you. Then how will you do in the floodplain (thicket) of the Jordan?

It’s been raining for a while now!

EDUCATION

Stanford University has lost its mind with initiative to eliminate ‘harmful language’ such as ‘brave’ and ‘American’ by Sara Carter staff

The following paragraph will show us how far out into outer space these radical left wingers in academia have travelled. We must take back our language and our country! Higher education is used to transform us into a bunch of pathetic children, scared of life in general. This should be laughed out of America. Rh

Among the words the university urges people to avoid in the imprecise language section is the term, “American.” People are instead asked to use “U.S. Citizen” because “American” typically refers to “people from the United States only, thereby insinuating that the US is the most important country in the Americas.” The Americas, the index notes, comprises 42 countries.

According to the released guide, the goal is to eliminate “many forms of harmful language,” including “racist, violent, and biased (e.g., disability bias, ethnic bias, ethnic slurs, gender bias, implicit bias, sexual bias) language” in Stanford websites and code.

In the most obviously hypocritical terms, Stanford stated that it strives to educate people on the impact of words. How is the organization too daft to understand that one cannot be educated about anything that has been taken away and pretended does not exist. If the holocaust is not taught in schools, current and future generations will never learn its “impact.”

Nonetheless, Stanford is pretending the “impact” of words that it wills out of existence, can be taught. Pathetic.

The index highlights 10 “harmful language” sections: ableist, ageism, colonialism, culturally appropriative, gender-based, imprecise language, institutionalized racism, person-first, violent and additional considerations.

Other terms deemed harmful include “abort,” which offers the replacement of “cancel” or “end,” because of moral concerns about abortion; “child prostitute” is replaced with a “child who has been trafficked,” so the person is not defined by just one characteristic; and “Karen” is replaced with “demanding or entitled White woman.”

An ‘ableist’ section exists, in which the index urges people to use “accessible parking” instead of “handicap parking,” “died by suicide” instead of “committed suicide” and “anonymous review” instead of “blind review.” It also says people should use “unenlightened” as a replacement for “tone deaf,” and a “person with a substance abuse disorder” as a replacement for “addict.”

In the gender-based section, the index says “pronouns” should be used instead of “‘preferred’ pronouns” because “preferred” suggests “non-binary gender identity is a choice and a preference.” The section further advises against words like “freshman,” “fireman” and “congresswoman” because the “gender binary language” does not include everyone.

The institutionalized racism section says to avoid using words like “black hat,” “black mark” and “black sheep” because of “negative connotations to the color black.” It also says to avoid using “grandfathered” and use “legacy status” instead, because of “roots in the ‘grandfather clause’ adopted by Southern states to deny voting rights to Blacks.”

The index completely cautions against using the word “brave” at all. No alternative is given. The same section also asks that a person’s name is used instead of “chief” or “Pocahontas.”

Christian Medical Worker Claims Her Livelihood was Taken Because of Beliefs – Took Final Stand on 1 Thing. By Western Journal

After 17 years of faithful service to her employer and her craft, a physician’s assistant was let go from her job at the University of Michigan Health-West.

The reason for Valerie Kloosterman’s termination was her refusal to participate in “gender reassignment” procedures, an action that ran counter to her “sincerely held religious beliefs” as a Christian, she said in a lawsuit filed Oct. 11 in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan.

“I’m heartbroken. I had 17 years that I spent with patients and families, co-workers who sometimes I spent more time with than I did with my own family. And they took that away,” Kloosterman told Fox News. Full story at WesternJournal.com

Are You Ready for Christmas?

Preparing for the Presence of God

If we are to receive the presence of God we must prepare ourselves. John the Baptist was sent to prepare people to receive the Son of God. His message was simple, “repent”. Mt. 3:2.

Repentance requires a change of heart, mind, will and behavior toward Him. He is Lord, and we must recognize and submit ourselves to Him. The Lord of our lives must be Jesus. Many in that day were not ready to recognize Him. Some wanted a king, a great military leader to throw off the heavy burden of Rome. They weren’t able to receive because they had preconceived ideas about how and who might come to be the Messiah. But Jesus came as a lowly and humble servant of God to redeem (by back) those who all their life had fears and failures in life due to their sins against Almighty God.

Are you prepared? He stands at the door and knocks. Will you open the door at this season? Jesus stands ready to give the greatest gift ever conceived, the Gift of Eternal Life. Romans 10:9-10, John 14:6. Rh
