  • In this world we live in, it has become readily apparent that we can count on one thing, and that is, “that we never know what is going to happen, and that everywhere we go, we need to be ready to protect ourselves.” Just in the last week there has been a driving massacre in New York, a shooting massacre in Texas in a church for crying out loud, and a mall shooting out West. These terrorists will use whatever they can get their hands on to kill. It’s what they do. It’s what they are all about, killing, death, and violence.

    This does not include the fires in California or the floods in Texas and Florida. So, you might be wondering, “I thought this guy was a counselor, and as such he should be spreading security, hope, love and wisdom?” Well, you’re right, so here it is; Get your carry permit, go get training at a range by certified professionals, make sure you know what you’re doing, and what’s around you. Keep vigilant, keep watchful, even when you think you’re in a safe place, as this world we live in isn’t safe any longer. Watch your six, know your surroundings, know where the exits are, and be watchful for things and people that look out of place.

    Now, I want to be very clear about something. We should not live in fear, we should not walk around scared, or not be willing to go out into the world, but we should know specific safety rules, and be watchful of our surroundings; that’s prudent, not scared. Unfortunately, in this world we now live in, terror attacks are common, and we need to be aware of what is around us, but we do not need to obsess because when you know who you are, and where you are going, if something does happen, then there is no fear. And, if you’re trained, armed, and ready, when something does happen, you’ll be ready to defend yourself, those around you, and take out the threat that might happen.

    We have authority over our lives, over our surroundings, and over the whole Earth, that was given by God when He sent His son to take back our Authority. If you know who you are, if you know your Authority in Jesus, then you know that we have power over all things. We are the ones who need to take back our Country, take back our Nation, and bring revival to the world, showing the power of God and that the supernatural should be natural.

    The whole purpose of this blog is to reassure our community that we have the ability to change things, one good act at a time. One nice gesture, one nice act, one good soft-spoken word at a time will affect change. The other issues we can take control of as well by being trained to protect ourselves and others. Live in hope, love, kindness and goodness; until its time not to. Then, we can take faith, trust, wisdom, and God, and go do what needs to be done to rid the world of evil.

    We live in a fallen world, where evil does happen, but we have a choice how we confront that evil. We have love, kindness, hope, wisdom, understanding and forgiveness. These things have no defense, that’s why evil tries to extinguish them whenever possible. Evil is afraid of all that is light, no matter what form that evil takes, it hates the light, all the time. We fight against evil, we fight against terror, because they spread fear, insecurity, hate, mistrust all of which is evil. So, we fight evil or darkness with good or light, with the foundation of faith in God, Country, mom, and apple pie.

    Freedom always has a cost, and it is never easy, it always costs something to be free. Do not allow this country, another country, terror, darkness, or evil to steal your freedom or your joy and peace.
