Welcome…check out what the words “Go…stand…speak” meant to the apostles in Jerusalem.

The First Word

“But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye…Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison. But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,  Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life” (Acts 4:17-19; 5:17-20).


Looking Back To See Ahead

I Samuel 7:12 – “Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the Lord helped us” (I Samuel 7:12).

Ebenezer: “A stone of help…a stone marker of some kind to commemorate a moment in time when the Lord’s help made a difference.”

Strength for today often comes from what occurred in some distant yesterday. The crush of day-to-day living sometimes keeps us from remembering what took place in the past. We struggle with our faith regarding what is happening at the present.

The Bible encourages us to build some Ebenezers at places when God intervened in our life and brought a deliverance, a healing, a provision. Rather than just thank God and move on, you should erect a marker in your memory and write it down that on this day God helped you. Then when the pressures and negative events of today drag you down and you don’t know where to turn, be lifted up by looking back to see ahead! Look back to a time when the Lord came to your rescue. That memory will increase your faith, brace your trust, and give you a clearer view of the road ahead. It will also provide a testimony to your children and grandchildren when you tell them of the events in your life that made a difference. (See Deuteronomy 6:20-25.)

In sixty-five years of ministry, I have had to look back to see ahead many times. Some Ebenezers back there encourage me when I need a lift. It may also work for you.


Makng A Difference: A single woman brings down communism

Life becomes overwhelming at times and leaves us wondering if what we are doing will make a difference in the world in which we live. That is when you want to remember people like Lech Walesa, M. L. King, Jr., and Rosa Parks, among others.

When communism imported from Russia had darkened the post-WW2 nation of Poland, they cried out for someone to speak for them. It happened that such a person was a dock worker in the northern city of Gdansk. Lech Walesa was an unlikely deliverer, but deliverers often come from unlikely places and backgrounds. He had the courage to speak out when it was not popular to do so. News outlets from around the world picked up his voice and actions and he became a power in Poland that the Communists didn’t know how to handle. A dissident, he led the Solidarity movement and ultimately became Poland’s President. He guided the change from communism in his nation and Western Europe to forms of democracy. He said his inspiration came from Martin Luther King, Jr.

King was active in speaking out against discrimination and racial segregation. He became a powerful person in achieving the overthrow of Jim Crow laws and getting passed the legislation that made a difference in the lives of many black Americans. His inspiration, he said, came from the example of Rosa Parks.

Parks was a little church-going lady in Montgomery, AL who one day refused to sit in the back of the bus. That simple act basically kicked off the civil rights movement of the 1960s. It took courage to do what she did, although it may seem such an insignificant act looking back from today.

So, in a way, Rosa Park’s decision to buck the tide and stand against the local authorities, led to the fall of communism in Europe. Don’t ever say that what you do will not matter. You never know how God might use your determination in helping America escape the iron fist of tyranny, and determine how the gospel is proclaimed around the world in the future.



Following the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2, when God had begun to confirm His Word with signs following (Mark 16:20), the Jewish authorities set out to stop the new Christian movement. In Acts 5:17-18 we are told they put the apostles in prison for disobeying their orders to not preach using the name of Jesus as their authority (Acts 4:17; 5:17,18). But that night the angel of the Lord came and freed them. They then got their orders directly from God through the angel: “Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life” (Acts 5:19).

Wouldn’t that be a violation of the principle which Paul would later outline in Romans 13:1-7 and/or Titus 3:1. Yes, it would. But that is exactly what they were told to do. When two principles seem to clash, which is to be chosen? The higher of the two should supersede.[1] When leaders are doing the right thing, avoiding corruption, and judging fairly, they are to be obeyed and respected. But when such behavior is not the case, and they are violating God’s laws, which represent the higher principle, we are not required to submit to every mandate of ungodly authorities. That word came directly from the angel of the Lord: “Go…stand… speak.” Therefore, the answer of the apostles to the authorities was: “But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. (Acts 4:19,20).

The attitude that seems to be most common among Christians in America today is, “Just pray. Those in authority are put there by God and we are obligated to obey them. Doesn’t the Romans 13 passage indicate that whoever is in authority has been placed there by the Lord? Let Him handle things. Just wait. Submit. Perhaps God will elevate someone, at some time in the future, who will be more accommodating to Christians.” Is that the approach of God’s people in the Bible? Is that the path the apostles chose? Is that an interpretation of Scripture that…..[Click here to continue reading this article]

“Squad” member admits masking is for “theater”:


Why Life Jackets Should Be Mandatory! – YouTube


How long will Americans put up with this?

Another elderly woman was attacked on the street (see link below). Your opinions, please: How will this wave of terror against our daughters, moms, and sisters be stopped?



Australia’s tracking program

Australia has become the test case for government overreach and authoritarianism and all tyrannical NWO devices. Melbourne, Australia is conducting a pilot tracking program. Random calls from the health dept. are made and they must be answered within five minutes or the gestapo comes after you, and they already know your location. News video:


Patriots in Australia are advising: Leave your phone at home.

Is Australia’s totalitarianism on its way to America?

Here is what Candace Owens says about Australia:

“Looking into what is happening in Australia and I can now confidently say that WW3 is upon us. We are in the midst of a global, psychological warfare. Under the guise of Covid-19, governments worldwide have declared war on their people for full totalitarian control.”


Schools are the new battleground

The most important elections being held in the U.S. right now are for positions on local school boards. Parents who address issues of concern before school boards are dubbed as “terrorists.” Children are being force-fed pornography, transgenderism, corrupted biological science, and twisted history. Parents…please make your voice heard at school board meetings!



A word to our students: You are being trained to be “social justice warriors” for contrived causes that will lead you into a political situation just similar to Communist China. Don’t be misled by teachers who are being forced to regurgitate socialist propaganda in the classroom and in your curriculum.


Huh? Common aspirin found to lower risk of Covid


Doctors are prescribing Ivermectin for Covid but some hospitals are told not to permit it to be administered. Like hydroxychloroquine it works so well that the left stands solidly against it. Isn’t it amazing that one seldom hears of important politicians, particularly leftists, getting the virus? Are they merely spoofing us about being vaxxed? Only one, Rep. Ron Wright, a Texas Republican, is listed as a Covid death. He had also been battling lung cancer.


Did coronaviruses used to be considered a common cold?

It is interesting that in 1989 in the American Medical Association Encyclopedia, coronaviruses were listed as the common cold.


Covid-19 is a lab-enhanced coronavirus, but how many millions of people have tested positive for Covid who merely had a cold or the flu? Isn’t it amazing how few flu cases we had last year?

It is also interesting that we are learning that airline pilots are suddenly dying after being vaccinated. Who knew? Some pilots are now speaking out.


Dismiss all such stories. The President assures us, as do the experts at CNN, that the vaccines are perfectly safe.


They seemed to know what was coming and how to take advantage of it

Seems lots of planning went into this pandemic:

In the video links below, Bright says this on October 29, 2019 at the minute mark 1:29, “There might be a need or even an urgent call for an entity of excitement out there that’s completely disruptive that’s not beholden to bureaucratic strings and processes….But it is not too crazy to think that an outbreak of a novel avian virus could occur in China or somewhere. We could get the RNA sequence from that, beam it to a number of regional centers, if not local, if not even in your home at some point, and print those vaccines on a patch and self-administer.”

Michael Spector, a New Yorker staff writer, said, “Why don’t we blow the system up? I mean obviously we can’t just turn off the spigot on the system we have, and then say hey everyone in the world should get this vaccine that we haven’t given to anyone yet.”

Fauci, “In order to make the transition from getting out of the tried and true egg growing…to something that has to be much better. You have to prove that this works….that alone, if it works perfectly, is gonna take a decade.”

Yeah, blow up the system, create “an entity of excitement,” shorten the time, get everyone on earth to take an RNA vaccine that never has been used and should take a decade to prove. Why are these people not considered frauds, guilty of many lost lives from the virus and the vaccine? Several other videos have shown that key players, including Fauci and Gates, planned this pandemic and anticipated its potential.

Tyranny on display

Want to know what tyranny and a police state sounds like? Canada’s Prime Minister Trudeau announced today that he will place all federal employees on unpaid leave until they’ve been injected with the experimental Covid vaccine and must declare their full ’vaccination status” through an online portal by Oct 29th, going on to say by 30th Oct, all workers and travellers age from 12 years old must show their “vaccination status” or be refused travel! Papers, please.



Doctor removed from hospital after refusing vaccine

Doctors are beginning to speak out at a personal cost to themselves.




If you are struggling with what to do about vaccines…

…you may want to listen to the following interview with a doctor. It and all other information here is not submitted to say I personally know it to be accurate and factual, but to provide a basis for choosing a path to take during this health crisis.



Fauci says we should give up our individual freedoms for what the left perceives as the nation’s “greater good”


Every freedom we have was hard won by men and women who cared about this nation and what it could mean to the future. We should not lay them down so easily when it was a price of blood that bought them for us. Just because a flip-flopping globalist says we must surrender does not mean that it is a good idea. He has earned the mistrust of all Americans.


“Own nothing and be happy.”

Called out, Reuters has denied that the World Economic Forum has said “by 2030 you could own nothing and be happy.” What is the truth?


But that was the essence of input at their latest meeting. Notice their 8 goals for 2030:


I also note that the UN has also said, quoted by Reuters, this enlightening bit of information:

“[T]he United Nation’s ‘Agenda 30’ framework (here and here), which is a set of Sustainable Development Goals devised in 2015 at the United Nations General Assembly (sdgs.un.org/2030agenda). They are freely available on government websites and outline objectives like ending poverty, which includes the goal making property ownership available to all:

“By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance.”

It’s easy to see where the “equity” thing is ultimately headed. To end poverty, certain people have to give what they have earned and/or paid for to someone else. The equity thing is why they are walking out of stores without paying. It is called “leveling the playing field.” “Equal rights to economic resources.” What does that mean except that resources are somehow passed to them without their earning it. It is the old Communist line to take from the haves and give to the have nots. How do the poor get “ownership and control over land and other forms of property” except it is taken from those who have it and given to those who have been too lazy or too unmotivated to earn it. America was built by men and women with personal motivation, a work ethic, and individual sacrifice. “Equity” will change all of that. And whose “inheritance”? Isn’t property ownership available to all now? To whom is it disallowed? Too many of us are not familiar with the old socialist line to recognize what is happening. Too few of comfortable Americans are paying attention!!



Vaccine side effects

A mother in Trinidad tells people about her son dying of blood clots in the head when he got the vaccine. I have read and listened to doctors explain the dangers of the vaccine. I don’t believe everything I read or hear on the Net. But too many have testified to this, and the data seems to back them up. Personal knowledge verifies some of what is said here. The vaccine causes blood clots in many people as it did this boy.

Having had clots myself, I mentioned this to my doctor and he quickly, without another word or prodding, wrote me a letter of exemption from the vaccine.

I would probably be dead right now if I had taken the vaccine. Perhaps that is not true, but it appears quite likely with my medical history and my age. Thousands of others have died after being vaxxed. Heart problems are another side effect of the vaccines. Google key words and many websites will verify these statements.


How fast things can change

A year ago unvaccinated people working the frontlines of health care were “heroes,” now they are “dangerous people”…and “unemployed.” – Arkreadynewsnetwork


Q & A

If fully vaccinated people can spread Covid, why aren’t they losing their jobs too?

Is it because the unvaxxed are the ones the vaxxed ruling class want to become dependent on the state for welfare?

If 60% of those now being hospitalized with Covid have been vaccinated, who are the real domestic “terrorists” and “murderers”?

If vaccination is vital and mandatory for all Americans, why is it not important to insure that those crossing the border are fully vaccinated?



“We have to be more honest about what 9/11 was and what it wasn’t. It was an attack on the hereropatriarchal capitalistic systems that America relies upon to wrangle other countries into passivity. It was an attack on the systems many white Americans fight to protect.”  – Jenn Jackson (a queer genderflux androgynous Black woman, an abolitionist, a lover of all Black people, and an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University in the Department of Political Science, according to her own website).


Digital artists say it like this


The Last Word

“We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts4:20).

Have a blessed day…keep the faith.


[1] For example, wives are told to obey their husbands (I Peter 3:1). However, if a tyrannical husband insists that his wife do that which would violate another clear principle of Scripture, such as demanding that she join him in a drinking binge at the bar, or to participate in some criminal act, she should resist and refrain. She is obligated to obey her husband only to a point.
