United We Stand

In my last blog post, I shared about the Battle of Kruger. That impactful video has not left my mind. I feel strongly that God has something to tell us. It’s all about being willing to fight for what is right, for what is biblical—by dropping our differences and being united.

I recently wrote an article on Tom Tancredo and how he fights for what he believes in—sometimes going against the status quo. (I’ll let you know when and where the article is published.) Tancredo, a friend, is brilliant. An inspiration.

Reading in the book of Judges recently about how the people of Laish were defeated confirmed my thinking. These people who lived peacefully, without contention, also lived isolated, without having direct connections with people around them (Judges 18:7 & 28). Thus, when they were attacked, they were easy prey because they couldn’t call on help. Isolation was their problem. It is often ours.

Foolish are we when we think we can live this life alone, isolated from others. And while I understand that people are often disappointed with church, I encourage anyone who knows Jesus to connect with His people in some way—on a regular basis. It’s the only way we’ll make it against the oncoming onslaught. And with elections as coming—and the feeble choices before us—the onslaught is surely coming.

Chapter 18 in my book, Heaven Help Me Raise These Children! focuses specifically on spiritual warfare: https://www.carepointministry.com/parenting.html. And it applies to every area of our life.

For those interested in Orphans First, please read the recent prayer requests as we consider partnering with an orphanage in Romania which was founded by Richard Wurmbrandt. Check out Prayer Chain: www.orphansfirst.org And, since this coming week, Prayer Vigils for Foster Children & Orphans will be held all over the country, let’s join together pray for orphans foster children this coming week: www.fostercareprayervigil.org. May all find godly forever families.

***I’m organizing a Prayer Vigil for Children at Risk on June 6th at North Coast Calvary Chapel for anyone in the area.
